CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 MemTest86+ errors on Asus P7P55D-E


Recommended Posts



I recently purchased the Corsair XMS3 4GB dual channel ram kit, product # CMX4GX3M2A1600C9, for my Asus P7P55D-E motherboard. However, both of the RAM sticks have MemTest86+ errors. I tried each stick individually, and both sticks display errors.


Here are the errors:


Module 1

- The first module displayed 3 errors after a 4 hour run. Here is the info I copied down from MemTest.


WallTime: 4:22:11, Pass: 11, Errors: 3, ECC Errs: 0


Tst 7

Pass 2

Failing Address 0001dcd7e6c - 476.8 MB

Good 374e16f9

Bad 334e16f9

Err Bits 04000000

Count 1


Module 2

- The second module started displaying errors immediately after I started MemTest. 42200+ errors after about 1 minute. I didn't record any further details.


WallTime: 0:01:19 Errors: 42240


To make sure the motherboard was not defective, I tried two other sticks of RAM from a different manufacturer, and MemTest did not display any errors after an overnight test with either of the sticks. I tested both the A1 and B1 RAM slots to make sure I did not have a defective slot, and both of them worked fine with the replacement RAM.


This is the second set of Corsair RAM that I have purchased (the first was a set of DDR2 RAM), and the second time I have had MemTest errors. :(
