TW3X4G1333C9A in an Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3


Recommended Posts

I finally finished getting the machine set up and was running memtest86+ on it and it appears one of the two sticks may be bad.


One stick fails pretty regularly on test 6 in at least 2 of the slots. I didn't try it on all four since it fails in half the slots anyway.

The other stick runs fine no matter which slot I stick it in.


I didn't bother to run the memtest with both sticks in at the same time.


The only thing I've done is adjust the voltage down to 1.50v as that is what is listed on the package for the memory. I believe the mobo autodetected it at like 1.54v or something around there.


If I were to RMA this, would I have to send both sticks back, or just the bad one?

I received the new sticks and I still have the same issue. One stick can run through 3 passes of memtest with no errors, and the other stick errors out in the first pass on test 5.

I used the same slot for testing both sticks.

first i have to say sorry for my (perhaps) bad english, i come from germany.


I have the same system compilation:


TW3X4G1333C9A in an Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3


Have 4 sticks a 2GB.


If i insert 2 sticks, system (win 7 64bit) runs stable, no problems.


If i insert 1 or 2 sticks more (all the same TW3X4G1333C9A, 2GB) the system shuts down with a blue screen after some time (sometimes after 5minutes, sometimes after a few seconds after reboot or after half an hour).


I tried the memtest from win 7.


With 2 Sticks there's no error.


With one stick more there is an hardware error.


The sticks seem to be ok, so i tried every stick alone, all seem to work fine.


Is it possible that i have to configurate something ion the bios (everything auto at the moment) to ensure all works fine?


Thank you for your answers!

Your CPU is DUAL channel. You should use 1, 2 or 4 DIMMs but not 3 DIMMs.


Mixing of RAM kits is not recommended nor guaranteed to work and often will not work even with the same RAM part number.


Since the RAM test good it probably is good. You can try 11-11-11-30 2T @ 1.65 V and see if you can run all four DIMMs but there is no guarantee per the Memory Upgrade Guide link in my signature. Also make sure you have the latest BIOS as this tends to correct RAM compatibility issues.


BTW, your English is fine and far better than mein Deutsch. ;):
