    Ok, one of my settings must be way off. I run memtest86+ at stock settings with no problems.

    I run memtest86+ with the below settings it gets to 29% of Test2
    [ Moving inversions, ones & zeros ], then freezes the PC. I have to hit the reset button.

    Here are all the settings, I believe you need:

    Try Driving Strength 1066 as you are only running 900Mhz ram speed right now, unless you wrote that ram speeds backwards above.

    Either way try 1066 and more MCH voltage (Like maybe 1.24-1.28) and set your ram at 2.1 at least (it may need the full 2.2v to run 1066)

    Those timings are too loose to be the cause, it has to be voltage related.

    And you can use lower Vtt (termination) for sure, under vcore is normally best

    lsdmeasap, your a friggin Genius...


    Running, what I assume is stable at 3.4GHz. I broke out of memtest86 after 4min without any errors.

    I still have a couple of questions please... your previous comment as seen below:
    ########
    Set all to highest below, then later lower one at a time testing with Memtest86+ as you go

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD...........................................3-5
    tWTR..........................................3-6 (use 12 first, then go to lower range)
    tWR............................................4-6 (use 14 first, then go to lower range)
    tRFC...........................................52-62 (use 68, same as above)
    tRTP...........................................3-6
    Command Rate (CMD) ....................:2

    #########

    Do you literally mean one at a time, or do you drop all three by an increment of one ? Then test.Also what am
    I doing here... the lower I go, the faster my Memory will preform ?


    Here are my settings now at 3.4GHz:

    Lastley, so I can go away and play (if you have time), I tried the second
    lot of settings below at 3.6Ghz. memtest86+ finished with no errors, but all
    memory settings are high/loose. I changed to 333MCH as seen below. Does anything
    stand out as horribly wrong ?

    Also do you know if my rig should comfortably handle 3.6Ghz (I won't sue you or
    hold you too it) But if you know this is a bit high, I will settle at 3.4Ghz...
    I don't mind if my components life is shortenned by a year but I don't want them to die
    in a year either, if possible. :-)

    I do mean one at a time, otherwise if you move them all you will never know what is causing errors. You can start with Static Tread

    All you need to do for both profiles is tighten up timings and see if you can lower any voltages. All looks good.

    And yes, your rig can handle 3.6 as long as your temps are good. Your system will outlast you wanting a new one for sure

    Well Yes, I'm running at 3.6Ghz, I will continue on and try tighten the mem settings. Thank you very much...

    Excuse my ignorance, but the lower you get these memory settings without errors, the better your memory works in sync with your CPU?
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Who knows… perhaps I will try 4GHZ next ;-) Thanks for the help.




    I could google this I guess... but in your opionion, what is the max temp you would allow a quad core psu to go too?

    Cheers LSD

    Yeap, lower timings is more bandwidth/faster data output. But to low can cause errors and loss of speed

    I think 70-75 is pushing it for that CPU, but keep in mind if you are using Something other then Orthos/prime to stress then it will be much hotter (Like LinX or Intel Burn Test)

    Try for 4! I am soon going to be getting a X3350 and That will be my goal.

    I am about to shut down here shortly and see if my E3110 can do 4.5 since I have not pushed it yet past 4.25

    So if I do try for 4Ghz, what has to proportionately change in my 3.6GHz settings above?
