Recommended Posts

i bought a p5q3 deluxe wifi mobo, and i am having problems when running dual channel memory mode so i took one 1 gb corsair stick off, it works fine with 3 sticks no crashes or any other errors. but then when i insert the 4th stick my pc suddenly becomes real unstable and at times restarts before it even gets into my desktop.

 

so please if there is anyone who can help me out it would be great thnx.

What is the version # of each pair? What timings / speed / voltage are you running them at?

And if it is four modules this may apply, but you should test the modules one at a time to be sure one is not failing with http://www.memtest.org.

With 4 modules I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR1066 and set the memory Voltage to 1.7-1.90 Volts and set the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage to +.05 Volts as well and test the system with http://www.memtest.org. In addition, with some MB's (Mostly ASUS) you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.

i have all my settings in bios under default with bios version 1609 with 3 ram sticks works fine but with 4 its real unstable.

 

You probably won't be able to get by with all default settings due to having 4 modules. Did you try the settings RAM GUY listed above?
