2 pairs of TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF and Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3


Recommended Posts

Hi, i recently upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit, so i decided to upgrade my RAM.

I went from 2gb to 8gb.


I have been having a few problems with 8gb installed, the computer will occasionally freeze(once when playing modern warfare 2, once when encoding a dvd, once overnight whilst downloading) This is what happens:



When 4gb is installed there are no problems.

I ran Memtest86 4.0 to see if there were any errors, when i had all 8gb in, it showed many errors, here is what it looked like:



When i run memtest with just 4gb installed, there are no errors.


I have tried running them at both recommended timings and default timings of 5-7-7-24


Are there any known problems for this setup and if so, are there any solutions?

I am encountering the same problems as you. Able to run 1 pair (4gb fine). I've tried two additional pairs...the first pair would BSOD (similiar to yours), also got errors in MemTest..the second pair wouldnt even post (I believe these to be bad).


Anyways, I did what you suggested (boosted the voltage by .3 to bring it to 2.1). Have you had any luck in doing so?
