    To be SURE you must run memtest for a few hours.

    Blend failures are caused by ram. Like I said above, if you do not want to wait on memtest to tell you if you have ram errors. Just run Orthos or prime Small or Large FFT's test, then you will see if your CPU fails or not

    1.38 is way to much, as i said already. Raising voltages is not going to help you at all. Especially in the way you are going about it.

    You need to back off, and test only one thing at a time, then decide and think about voltages/timings after you know which is the issue.

    As I said about 1.35 you wont even likely need that much at 4Ghz. So you are raising CPU voltage to compensate for other issues. Sounds to me like your ram is just not stable as you think. I would for sure back off your Vcore as I do not think your Board has a very large Vdrop/Vdroop. And especially if you have loadline enabled you better as you will soon kill your CPU at 1.38

    If you want to post your full settings, and I will see if any look like a issue

    i will when i am back at home,

    ok memtest do i need to do that when the computer is overclocked or just as stock?

    when i get home i will start over and do it properly when i ran memtest it was on for an hour passed twice took half an hour to pass once.

    i will re read your overclocking guide :D

    I would do it at stock one stick at a time first to be sure you do not have DOA sticks, Then yes you will need to test your overclock and adjust until there is no errors

    When testing and changing memory values when overclocking I use test #2 and #5 for small amounts of time to see if things are semi stable, if so I will continue tweaking. Then once I feel it is pretty stable I will run several hours/overnight of full test, and a few hours of test #2 and #5 again to be sure.

    i have done 10 passes of test #5 and test #2 on both stick's seperatly

    then i backed down the Voltage to 1.29V and got errors on test #5 herer was the error on the bottom of the screen

    0001da9c 000065e1 0001dacc 000032dc

    here are my complete settings

    Robust graphics booster [AUTO]
    cpu clock ratio [9X]
    fine cpu clock ratio [0.5]
    CPU host frequency [422]
    PCI express frequency [100]
    CIA [Dissabled]
    Performance enhance [Standard]
    System memory multiplyer [2.0] if i set it to 3.20 it will just reboot to stock
    Memory frequency [800] 844
    Dram Timing Selectable [Manual]
    Cas Latency Time 5 [5]
    Dram ras# to cas# delay 5 [5]
    Dram Ras# precharge 5 [5]
    Precharge delay tRAS 18 [12]

    ACT to ACT delay 3 [4]
    Rank Write To Read Delay 3 [11]
    Write to precharge delay 3 [11]
    Refresh to ACT Delay 42 [52]
    Read to precharge delay 3 [6]
    Static tRead value 7 [10]
    Static tRead Phase Adjust 25 [auto]

    System Voltage control [Manual]
    DDR2/DDR3 Over voltage [+0.3]
    PCI-E OverVoltage [+0.1]
    FSB OverVoltage [+0.1]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage [+0.1]
    CPU Voltage Control [1.29375V]
    Normal CPU Vcore 1.22500V

    hope this helps

    What is this voltage? >>>
    then i backed down the Voltage to 1.29V
    If this is your first ram testing you should run several hours of full test, not single tests for X amount of passes.

    Yes >>>
    System memory multiplier [2.0] if i set it to 3.20 it will just reboot to stock
    That is because 3.20 x 422 is 1350Mhz ram speed, that is not going to work. I dont think you ever said, is this 800 or 1066 ram? Either way, for what you have above you will need to use the 2.4 (1013Mhz)or 2.66 (1122Mhz) Multiplier for that 422 FSB

    If you have 800 ram then you will need to use the 2.00 multiplier or raise Main timings to 555-15 or 555-18

    yeah its 800 ram

    1.29375V is what my CPU is at at the moment

    timing are at 5-5-5-15 running at 1012 MHz

    Ahh ok, thought so but wasnt sure.

    Your ram may not do 1000 stable so if you cannot get stable that is likely why

    its not running at 844 MHz

    would i benifit from new ram?

    i was looking at this 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair Dominator DDR2 PC2-8500 (1066), 240 Pin, Non-ECC Unbuff, CAS 5, EPP, DHX + Fan

    its 97
    97 British pounds = 174.7164 U.S. dollars Roughly

    or should i go away from Corsair?

    i think i do need new Ram, as i can have it stable at 3.8 GHz but not 4Ghz just ran a 3 hour test with memtest no errors but it just wont go above that 800Mhz line :S


    just running orthos and at 3.8 Ghz my core's are cool

    core #0 41 oC
    core #1 39 oC

    So i can push it to the 4 GHz but not with this ram :(


    hmmm at a lower setting 5-5-5-12 it will run Memtest unlike before will leave it running for a while

    2 passes so far



    What would u recogmend 4-4-4-12 or 5-5-5-12?

    I would suggest 555-15 for 844Mhz, then once you are sure that is stable you can try to lower each one starting with CAS. If CAS to 4 fails, then put back on 4 and try to lower the other 3 one by one

    Just because it fails memtest doesnt mean it is not going to work, it just means you need to adjust settings is all. So you likely do not need new ram
