    I was getting errors with orthos blend stress cpu and ram very quick last night. I made my ram voltage from 0.2 and 0.3 and orthos ran the test all night for about 7 hours with no erros with those settings. I wanted to run Memtest86+ to see what happens and i got a error in 3 mins. I think this ram needs to be run at 2.2? Im gonna check again.

    I dont see a edit key next too quote but i see multi quote this message and quick reply this message.

    I googled the ram and its suppose to be run 2.2 voltage. Everyone seems to have problems with this ram on newegg reviews. ddr2 voltage control +0.3 is 2.1 right?

    Customer Reviews Of Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

    What do you think i should, 2.2 is safe?

    You may just need more posts to edit, I am not sure of the required number. I see some edit their first post yet others have to wait?? So not sure about that, it's cool to post again though anyhow.

    2.2 is the max warrantied, and WILL kill your sticks very quickly. Especially without a Fan on them. Crucial has changed that to 2.0 now because of SO many RMA's due to this issue.

    I would advise you use 2.1, and yes +0.3 is 2.1 (Check your PC health section and see what it gives you though to be sure) 2.0-2.1 should work fine.... Or you may need to not use 444-12 at 850MHz, not all sticks will do that. Try 544-12 for a while and see

    Did you ever test these sticks at stock one by one to be sure you did not get a faulty stick? I ask because the above settings should be passing memtest I would think unless those sticks are faulty or they just wont do 444-12 at 850

    Can you choose 2.00D for your ram multi? If so that may be best at your FSB

    I don't have a option to use 2.00D, it only says 2.00. I tried 5-4-4-12 2.1 and i get a error on memtest in a minute. Should i try the sticks one by one with the settings you are giving me? If that doesn't work any ideas?

    Thanks for your advice and this is where im at.. my ram has no errors with memtest for 8 hours with these settings i forgot to change Precharge Delay (tRAS) - to 15 and saw my mistake after 8 hours if memtest.

    4-4-4-12 2.1 lasted under 1 pass memtest
    5-4-4-12 2.1 lasted under 1 pass in memtest
    4-4-4-12 2.2v was unstable in memtest it lasted 6-7 hours then error
    5-5-5-12 2.1 lasted 8 hours in memetes no errors. I forgot to change the 12 to 15 is that ok?

    About my cpu voltage control, in my bios it wont let it go under 1.344, i can go lower but it always shows as 1.344 in cpu-z. I will test with orthos tonight to see if my cpu lasts 11 hours. 8-11 hours is what i read every does it for i guess.

    Any tip on what orthos test should i be using? I see 4 choices. If i pass cpu test what do you think i should be tightening up?

    Thanks for your help i think im close to being finished.

    Yeap 555-12 is fine, anything is fine as long as it passes memtest. Except you always want the last one (of the 4 MAIN Timings) to be at least +2 above the first two added together

    Orthos you can run Blend if your sure your ram is stable that will test ram and CPU. If you want to just test the CPU alone you can use either small or large FFT's

    How low did you try to set your voltage to see if it would change? Are you using the latest CPU-z

    Im using cpu-z_148.

    About the voltages i wasnt waiting long maybe 20 mins of orthos then i would lower it. Some thing strange to me, my cpu is idle right now and my cpu voltage at 1.344 on cpu-z. But while i was running orthos last night, my voltage was 1.328. Now its back to 1.344 while my pc is idle. Hope i didnt mess anything up with the quick changes.

    Anyway i ran 8 hours of Orthos last night and 8 hours of memtest the night before. Whats left to do tighten up ram timings? My bios is still the same as my last post.

    Your voltage will vary from BIOS setting to idle, and then again from idle to load. This is normal and is by Intel design

    Yeap, all you have left to do is tighten up your ram timings and then see if you can lower any volts or not

    Thanks im starting to get this stuff a little. One thing i dont understand is the numbers. Lets say i wanted to raise my cpu to 3.5 or 3.6. Could i do this keeping the ram the same speed as it is now?

    Also im looking around on some forums to go about clocking my graphics card, now that my cpu and ram is looking good. Do i need to turn Robust Graphics Booster to auto or can i keep it the same?

    Do I run any risk too the mother board overclocking the nvidia 8600gts? I plan on using the EVGA overclocking tool unless you don't recommend that. Thanks alot your reply's are always appreciated.

    Yes likely Just keep a eye on the ram multi and if you go over 900 you may need to loosen up some timings a bit

    You can test that graphics setting on any setting, it should not affect your stability. Try them all with some different benchmarks.

    Here is a nice new one I like >>>

    LightSmark 2.0
    LIGHTSMARK - next generation lighting benchmark

    Hot GFX card? Run this and stretch the window out (you have been warned!!) >>>

    FurMark >>>
    FurMark: graphics video card stability stress test, GPU temperature and OpenGL benchmark | oZone3D.Net

    No you wont hurt your board overclocking your card (You may want to add +0.1 to PCI voltage to ensure that goes over well)

    I use ATItool (yes it work for nvidia) or Rivatuner, but sure you can use the EVGA software as well
