John Hixson Posted December 2, 2010 Share Posted December 2, 2010 I have been otherwise successfully using a 6GB set of DDR3-1600 on a Rampage III Extreme in my new build for several weeks now but I haven't been doing any overclocking. Before going into that I wanted to be sure the memory was OK; so: When I run MemTest Pro 4.0 on a group of 3 (x2GB ea) Corsair Dominator GT DDR3-1600 (CMT6GX3M3A1600C7) memory sticks, I get errors on one or both of the Unused and Remaining RAM tests. I've run it several times and gotten errors each time. I then tried running MemTest64 Deluxe on individual sticks and individual slots (ASUS Rampage III Extreme). On these secondary tests all three sticks individually ran >1000% error free. Running a tested-good stick in each of three individual slots gave error-free results for >1000% testing on all slots. These sticks are rated 1600MHz 7-7-7-20 at 1.65volts and I am not running them above these specs. So what's going on here? What should I do next to prove that this 6GB set of RAM is either good or bad? Thank you for your advice. John Hixson P.S. I also ran these questions by the MemTest Support (email) just to cover as many bases as possible. John Hixson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
