    Unhappy P35-DS3R v1.0 and OCZ memory woes

    a few months ago I bought this motherboard along with 4 sticks of PC2 8500 OCZ memory, the memory that is recommended by Gigabyte. Specifically the memory product number is OCZ2N1066SR2GK. After a month one of my memory sticks went bad, so I sent it as a pair back to OCZ and got 2 new sticks. After receiving the new memory I used a memtest like program to verify them. All was good. That was about 2 months ago. Just recently I was having bluescreens, and I discovered that 3 more sticks have gone bad including one of the replacements, so I'm down to only one good stick.

    I've never had this much problems with memory. Is it possible that my motherboard or setup is destroying the memory? Perhaps the memory is overheating or something? Should I send the memory back to OCZ, or is it a motherboard problem?

    Have you checked how much power you’re feeding the modules?

    A few people, myself included have noticed when upping the voltage in the bios it doesn’t go up accordingly. Default is 1.8v, but in my case when I add +0.1v in the bios, Everest reports the value as 2.016v. It has been argued that only a multi-meter will give you an accurate reading; however other users have confirmed the voltages reported by software monitoring apps such as Everest tally with their own physical readings.

    I have found the same also. I use Everest to confirm my voltages currently 2.3.
    When running 4 modules you need to make sure you have good air flow around them. Especially at overclocked speeds like 1066mhz.
