  • Memory (RAM) issue

    After running Memtest 86 for a bit this morning, one of the two sticks of Gskill RAM was throwing a lot of errors, I'm assuming that an RMA will be the only course of action.
    I also noticed while testing the good stick that depending on the slot the stick was in, the speed changed. In the first slot the stick would run 745MHz (DDR3-1491) and in the second slot the stif would run 660MHz (DDR3 - 1333). I'm not sure what that data is telling me or if its not important.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for any help

    Memtest has been known to display incorrect ram timings depending on MOBO and processor. Are the RAM timings and speed correct in CPUID?. If so, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

      My RAM seems to be back in order after a call to gskill last night (apparently it won't run well if you don't have XMP enabled)

        U do have the voltage set to 1.5V and everything else stock?

          Anymore troubles after you enabled XMP Reaper?

            The voltage settings were at the correct 1.5V but I was overclocked @ 3.2 GHz with the RAM running @ 1600

            XMP seems to have fixed the issue but it could also be resolved from not being overclocked anymore and therefore the RAM running at a lower frequency. I will hopefully have more time to test out my overclock again but my new Galaxy Nexus is taking all my time right now...

            I think the stick(s) may still be bad but operable at lower frequency, I've had these parts for almost a year now and I had never run XMP before and everything ran great till recently.

              A quick update on this with some ongoing overclock testing


              standard frequencies
              RAM 1333 CPU 2.66GHz - Everything runs fine (including GPU OC)

              RAM 1600 CPU 2.88GHz - Failed to boot into windows also produced static in the onboard sound (this worries me a bit, could be MB?)

              RAM 1280 CPU 3.20GHz - Boot fine into windows about to test with some BF3 (currently running right now)

              I'll check back soon but something is now working as it should.

                BF3 was stable and on par with previous experience in the game. Might play with it some more but it seems that the RAM doesn't want to run at its advertised speed.

                  This makes me think back to a memtest fail that i had and wondering if it was my OC back then. Have just started OCing again, its kind of fun... Quite thrilling reaching new speeds at low temps!

                    Question. Does the mobo. Support 1600 mhz? I have the same memory but my mobo did not support the speed and was a ting similar to what you describe

                      Yes, support for DDR3 2200/1600/1333/1066/800 MHz memory modules. I might just try and drop the CAS settings and use it at lower frequency. I don't think it is going to make that big of an impact on gaming running the RAM at a lower frequency.
