dave_reap Posted December 14, 2010 Share Posted December 14, 2010 hey all, I have had 2x2x2x2 corsair dominators (v1.1 and 1.2 dual kits) running in my board for almost a year now without any problems at 1066 default and overclocked at various times up to 4ghz with no problems (board is gigabyte x48-ds5) last week my computer began hard locking and it took me a while to figure out what was doing it. If i remove half the ram down to 4gb it will work fine do 1066 etc no problem and overclock no problem with either kit in individually When I have the full 8gb in the comp will hard lock after 10/15 mins of cpu instensive tasks... The only way I can get the 8gb to run is to clock the memory right down to 667 in the bios and this seems to cure it... However this is rather annoying as I had it all running like a dream for almost a year The only settings in bios I have really changed are obviously the memory voltage to 2.1 and i have also increased the chipset (mch) by 0.2... Anyone any ideas whats changed? or suggest any tweaks i might make? Thanks, Dave ps memtest 86 is showing no errors in either kit or when the full 8gb is installed at 1066 running for over 24 hours Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
