    Exclamation X79 Extreme 9 - Memtest with 8 Dimms (1600Mhz / 1866Mhz)

    I can run memtest at 1600MHZ with 8 dimms, and no errors.

    Running at 1866Mhz pops up about 18 errors after 1 pass.


    What settings could remove those errors? I was thinking higher timings like 10-10-10-27 @ 1866Mhz with 8 dimms.

    Nearly all errors happened during the random moving tests.

    The memory modules are rated at 2000mhz 9-10-9-27 1.65v

    10-10-10-28 passed at 1866Mhz

    Going to give 2133Mhz 11-11-11-31 a go (going by other 32GB kits timings at 2133mhz) but this is 8 sticks testing.

    Might check some 64GB setups for similar info.

    You can use CPU-Z and check the SPD tab, to see the recommended timings for your memory at different speeds.

    What voltage are you using for that memory now? More memory usually needs more voltage. You could also bump up the memory controller voltage a bit.

    I have now manually input the 4 primary timings to 11-11-11-31 @1866Mhz @1.65v with all AUTO settings for every memory setting in bios.

    This seems to be incredibly stable under strenuous/unpredictable conditions.

    No flakyness or questionable app behavior.

    What company and model number did you go with for the RAM? Thanks...

    Please forgive my ignorance Vin, but that's the name of the company's RAM, x2? Never heard of it. Do you have a link to the company's site? Thanks...

    that was me agreeing with your question... I would also like to know what RAM modules he is using.

    Funny, someone made a comment/request today on another forum and then another person backed it up with a "x1" comment. I should've caught that, my bad... :-)

    So I gather Gunnz is not going to reply. Too bad, as I would have liked to know what company's RAM he was using...
