Thread: EP35-DS3L Memory issue or something else?

    Then everything should be on Auto....

    Setting everything to auto may not be reliable with 4gig of ram. From what I can tell it's common to have stability problems without increasing the MCH Vcore and manually setting the ram timings - even running at stock speeds. But, as usual with computers it just depends on the ram, mobo, etc.

    ok, so changed timings to 5-5-5-15 last night and started two prime95 blend test sessions. No errors have appeared as of this morning. Hopefully this will still hold true by the time I get home this evening. If so, I think I can safely say that the memory settings are to blame for my problems. Can anything be done to tighten up the timings and keep stability?

    Oh yeah, now starts the long process of tweaking. Basically you just make small changes (preferably only one change) and test, change, test, change, etc. Just write down all your settings when you start, and document each change and test result. Just reduce a timing or voltage until you get errors, then bump it back up a tad, then start reducing a different timing or voltage.

    It can get tedious, but the reward is a stable, fast machine. The EasyTune program may help the process a bit.

    So everything looks good for now. I will let the machine run for the next few days and make sure it continues to run without a problem and then start tweaking things. Thanks for the help.

    Do you have all of your Windows updates. One in particular KB929777. I had BSOD problems and this seems to have addressed the issue. Mine was failing to install through automatic updates. I tested it by running 2GB instead of 4GB and system was stable. Only when I had the entire 4GB in did I get the BSOD. Might be worth a look, just check your update history if you have auto updates on and see if it failed (just FYI mine showed as installed in the update list, only showed failed in the history).
