Problem ram Vengeance Performance DDR3 1600 (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9)


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,I bought these ram but since the day one i had stability problems at 1600 freq.

I tried these settings:


xmp profile disabled but setted on the bios settings the dram freq at 1600 -> BSOD

xmp profile 1, show these timings, 9-9-9-24 1.3-1.5v -> BSOD

xmp profile 1, timings 10-10-10-24 standard volt -> BSOD

xmp disabled, timings 9-9-9-24 voltage 1.55v ( a little bit better, 1-2 BSOD in 3-4h of intensive gameplay)


but i don't like these crashes, maybe i can try to set at 1.6v for check if is better? can you help me guys?

At this point it would be best to test each module one at a time with memtest86+. There is a link on the left side bar . Make sure you load set up defaults , first, enable the XMP profile, then boot to memtest. Let each stick run for a minimum of three passes or until you get an error.


We can go from there depending on the results.

Well ,the results of that would suggest your stability issues are somewhere else. If it can pass that many passes at rated speed with no errors then the memory is fine. Possibly MB/ CPU.


Is this a new build and have you had any other memory in this system yet?

What does the Bluescreen says ?What code do it generate?


Is the system at stock speed or have you overclocked the system?

Then its probebly the Vcore or QPI/VTT that needs more juice


If you have a sli setup then you could try to increase the IOH core volt by one step.


More info!
