SilverShine Posted August 23, 2009 Share Posted August 23, 2009 Hi, So i got 2 sets of TWIN2X4096-8500C5Df (8 GB in total) in a Asus P5Q-Deluxe motherboard for over 1 year now. Its been working fine at AUTO settings (which was pretty much 1066mhz on the ram) Untill 4 months ago, when i started getting BSOD like every 2 hours , also the freezez have been getting worse and worse with each passing day (as in shorter time between them, its down to 20 minutes now and BAM freeze) NO , IT IS NOT THE PSU! I found a quick solution to it, reduce the memory freq to 800mhz , plain and simple from the BIOS without any other modifications. Works fine , even now. From what i read on the forum, it shouldnt be this simple to just reduce it , i have to change some Voltages and timmings and the works , now i dont know alot about this kindda stuff , so just bare with me if you please. Also another thing to be noted was , that yes i did run the mem test like you guys say over and over again on the forums , remove 1 stick at'a time and test it on its own. No errors. Another thing to be noted is (if it helps), Wierd things happen with the ammount of the ram (in MB): (This happens ONLY when i ran them in 1066mhz) In the Bios , under System Information it read : 8192 MB of ram (usable) In Windows it reads something like 7960mb something, and it fluctuates. Highest iv seen was 8190mb (in windows) When the computer crashed due to it beeing on 1066mhz , i noticed that then the bios detected the same value as detected before the crash in windows (7960mb something) I restart , boot-up bios , check the available memory its back to 8192mb. Im running the latest Bios from Asus ( also tried it with diferent older versions as well), same thing. What im actualy interested in is some specs that i can put in the Bios for voltages , the works , so its working like it "should". Thanks alot. Oh , also i tried it on the same computer but with diferent ram (again 2x kits of 4gb , all slots filled) Worked perfectly in 1066mhz. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
