2 kits of TR3X6G1600C7D & Asus P6T Deluxe V2


Recommended Posts

Hi! I am running into some issue with Memtest86+ and my configuration.


BIOS Settings:

Ai Overclock Tuner - Manual

CPU Ratio Setting - Auto

Intel SpeedStep - Disabled

DRAM Frequency - DDR3-1600MHz

UCLK - 3200MHz

QPI/DRAM Core Voltage - 1.30

DRAM Bus Voltage - 1.66

DRAM CAS# Latency - 7

DRAM RAS# to CAS Delay - 7

DRAM RAS# PRE Time - 7

DRAM RAS# ACT Time - 20

DRAM Timing Mode - 1N

* Everything else Auto


These setting seemed to be very stable, and I have had no issues in Windows thus far. Memtest86+ is a different story. With all 12GB loaded Memtest86+ freezes at 3% on test 0. Each 6GB kit tested individually freezes at 7% on test 0. I backed down all the timings and had the same exact results. I do have legacy usb disabled in my BIOS.


Any ideas? Do I have bad memory?




Update: I just burned a new copy of Memtest86+, and so far so good. So I am guessing it was a false alarm.


On another note what exactly are acceptable temperatures for the Core i7 to run at? At full load with (4) SP2004 running I am approaching 70 C. Low noise is of high importance to me so I am running the following setup in my Solo Case:

(2) Noctuna NF-B9-1600 Intake Fans

(1) Noctuna NF-S12B ULN exhaust fan

Noctua NH-U12P SE1366 HSF w/ one fan


Right now it is pretty silent, and temps are acceptable at idle, but is 70 C too hot at load?
