kevral Posted October 25, 2010 Share Posted October 25, 2010 I have been having serious stability issues with my Crosshair IV Formula, and after having replaced the motherboard twice I think I have narrowed the problem down to incompatible or faulty ram. My hunt for compatible memory leaves me with a bit of a problem: Corsair has 2 different locations to look for compatible memory and Asus has their QVL list. And I can't see any memory modules that appear on all three lists, or even two. 1. Corsair lists "AMD Phenom II" memory, of which none are rated over 1333. 2. Corsair's Memory Configurator returns three results, of which only CMP4GX3M2C1600C7 is available in my country. None of these appear in the above Phenom II list. 3. Asus' QVL has a whole slew of Corsair memory, which don't seem to have any overlap with Corsair's lists and even includes a lot of triple channel memory. I have tried CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 which are on Asus' list. These give me random Memtest errors (sometimes a lot, sometimes none, with no apparent pattern) and also errors in Prime95 with large FFTs. Graphics drivers reset and PC bluescreens. I have now tried CMP4GX3M2B1600C8 which is Amd Phenom II rated according to the sticker on the pack, and the only such rated memory my local shop had. This is not on either of Corsair's above-mentioned lists, and the computer refuses to even POST with these. Now what do I do? Which of the three above authorities can I rely on?
