gh0st47 Posted February 10, 2013 Share Posted February 10, 2013 Guys...my brand new Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB RAM , has failed MemTest86 on the same day i bought them ! :eek: :eek: :sigh!: I have 2 sticks installed when testing it had over 1 K errors withing minutes.... I installed them according to Asus recommendation as in Slot 2 and 4 instead of Slot 1 and 3 ( Slot 1 is closes to the CPU Cooler ) I used CD-Boot Up for the MemTest86 not USB. Im using a Asus P8Z77-M Mobo + Intel i5 3550 @ 3.3 Ghz I have the RAM set to XMP Profile on the AI Tuner , so it's running at it's proper speed and settings 1600mhz , 9-9-9-24 , 1.5V Since running at those settings failed , i had it reverting back to the Default settings , as in turning off the XMP profile , so my RAM was only running at 1333mhz , which too still failed the MemTest86... But the test is on the first day i bought my RAM , i instantly had it running on MemTest86 , it's been passed 6 days now , but so far i didn't get any BSOD , Freezing etc , so far no problems when gaming , no crashing etc. So is it time for RMA :confused: :confused: Or is there something i doing wrong when using MemTest86 or did i did some wrong RAM settings in the BIOS :confused: :[pouts: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
