Phil2k_999 Posted November 5, 2010 Share Posted November 5, 2010 Hi, yes here's another 'But I've got too' post :D: ... I also have this issue of being unstable with X.M.P enabled @ 1600 speeds, getting BSODs with memory management issues and sometimes just hard freezes. I have two I7 rigs :D: running the same memory but different versions (I7-975EE with TR3X6G1600C8D ver3.1 and I7-965EE with TR3X6G1600C8D ver7.1). My 965 system is stable as a rock on X.M.P and ver7.1 sticks :cool: but the 975 system is unuseable! with the ver3.1 sticks :mad: As in the above posts all the usual tests have been carried out, all sticks pass memtest86 on their own or in a pair but in triple, many errors (thousands) are shown with X.M.P settings (slower speeds and voltages 1.5/1.35qpi yeild better results but not 100% stable:sigh!:, just crashing less often with memtest86 showing fewer errors:evil:). If I swap the ver3.1 sticks to the 965 rig I get the same unrelaiable results, unfortuneatly as the 965 rig is watercooled and the 975 being on air, I'm unable to change the sticks from the 965 rig to the 975 rig without draining the whole rig:eek: something I'm not willing to do for another 3 months:!: So the questions: ;): - If I RMA the ver3.1 kit what are the chances that I'll get a later revision? - Was it indeed the revision that makes the difference between stable and unstable? - May I also ask what the difference is between the versions? :D: Is it different firmware or different chips used? :confused: Many Thanks In advance! -=Phil=- Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
