Hi Guys its me again

 

I will trash my Asus Striker 2 Extreme due crap chipset and instability issues.

As stated in many threads this board sucks!

The newest bug on my Striker 2... it reboots under full load *rofl*

I get realy pissed off this board and the problems with the DDR3 ram. I am so happy with my new core I7 but i need a stabel board for my 2nd System.

 

 

Now i will try a ultra cheap "noname" board.

 

Following things will be used:

 

ASRock X48TurboTwins

TW3X4G1800C8DF

Intel QX9650

P_N_Y- Gf9800GTX+

Adaptec 5405

Antec 650Watt PSU (Blue series bla bla bla.....)

2x WD RE3 1TB

ESI-Juli@

 

 

What do you think?

The Striker 2 MB should be fine with these modules just that running any MB at DDR1866 is a big O.C. Or Gigabyte offers some decent MB's do a search for the modules part number with the key word reviews and see what the reviewers were using.

Did your Board run stabel ?

Mine not.....

 

I runs almost but i got sometimes the windows error:

Could not read or write from Address xxxxxxxxx

 

(I have translated the error message from german to english)

 

Any Idea?

I have NOT installed the memmory management driver:

Ram Voltage 1.80 (in bios) that results in 1.84

NB is on 1.5 Volt

the rest is like stated in the datasheet...

i have checked the memory with memtest86+ from memtest.org

At 1.76 Volt at 1778 Mhz no error i can push the clock up to 1909 Mhz if i lift the voltage of the NB to 1.55 Volt and the Ram to 1.85...

 

memtest ran 3 complete passes without error.

But at 1909Mhz windows will not start.... thats okay its completly overclockt memory....

 

At 1777 Mhz 8-8-8-24 at 1.76 Volt it works almost, ....

I think this is not the fault of corsair its the chipset / mainboard design

 

Should i try to solder additional cpacitators near the ddr voltage regulation circruit?

Hi,

 

i get no luck!

 

I get still the errors in windows (Memory address can not be Read or Writen)

As you know i have also tried:

 

Corsair XMS3 with 1333 (TW3X4G1333C9) -> System Freezes after about 30 minutes

 

Corsair XMS3 with 1600 (TW3X4G1600??) -> System Freezes after about 30 mintues

 

Corsair Dominator with 1800 -> runs but with some errors

 

Don´t forgett i have also tried a MSI P7N2 Diamond wich shows the same errors

 

What do you think ... should i RMA the RAM / CPU or BOARD.... or trash these components and buy a second Core I7 ?

 

 

I am not shure if the CPU is okay, but with the most testtools like prime95 its okay.

This would suggest it is not the memory causing the problem, can someone help you test the CPU in another MB?
