2 pairs of TWIN2X4096-8500C5D


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


I am having trouble with my CM2X2048-8500C5D. My PC will run fine for weeks then I get the BSOD, run MEMTEST and the memory fails. Turn the PC on again and it then runs fine again and wont fail the memtest. Will be like that for maybe another month and then fails again. My bios settings are all defaults except have it set at 5-5-5-15, is there a setting I could use that could improve the reliablity of this memory



Asus Rampage formula M/B

Intel Q9650

8GB CMCX2048-8500C5D

2 x MSI 4870 Video Cards

Thermaltake 1200 watt P/S

2 x WD Velociraptors


Thanks Trev

Random errors like that would suggest some other problem and with 4 modules on that MB I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR667/DDR800 and set the memory Voltage to 2.1 Volts and set the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage to +.2 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.
