BSOD with Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L and TWIN2X4096-8500C5C


Recommended Posts

Upgraded to windows 7 64 bit and decided to increase my ram from 2 gigs to 4 so I purchased:


Corsair XMS2 Twin2x4096 PC2-8500 DDR2-1066 CL5-6-6-18


I had BSOD 2 or 3 times a day until I changed my Turbo setting in my bios down to standard, but it still happens, now about once a day.


I need to find out if the ram is bad or if it's something I can set in my bios to make it more stable.


Here are some of the settings for my motherboard:

CPU Ratio 9x

CPU Freq 3.0 (333x9)

Performance Enhance - Standard (or Turbo)

System Mem multiplier - Auto

Mem Freq - 1066

System Voltage - Auto (Manual)

DDR2 Overvoltage control - Normal (or +0.1 to +0.7)

FSB Overvoltage control - Normal (or +0.1 to +0.3)

CPU Voltage control - Normal (or 2.0 to 0.512)

Normal CPU Vcore - 1.22500v


Any suggestions?

After running memtest for the past 3 hours (3 passes) I only received one error:


Tst 8

Pass 1

Failing address 000c3a767d4 - 3130.4MB

Good 09c51271

Bad 09c41271

Err-bits 00010000


So with only one error does that mean the memory should be ok? How many errors are good/bad?

There's also a number:


39771 in large print. ?


How do I set the voltage on this motherboard though? All I can see are overvoltage controls. ?

I'm also having BSOD problems with this mobo/ram combination. I bought a pack and couldn't get my system stable for more than an hour, so I RMAd them to the place I bought them from. My new sticks just arrived today, I put them in, set bios to failsafe defaults, and tried to start up windows. The second it hit my desktop, instant BSOD.


I was able to get into windows for about 5 minutes on a second try and easytune confirmed that the voltage was at 2.1v.
