    Default GA-EP43-DS3L Freezing

    GA-EP43-DS3L E5200(stock) 2x1Gb OCZ Plantinum Edition OCZ2P800R22GK(Rated at 4-4-4@ 2.1V) 320GB Sata Hard Drive Hiper 530W PSU Radeon HD 4670 My computer started freezing radomly and especially when I started Crysis. I then switched RAM from slot 1 & 3 to slot 2 & 4 and the problem was still there. I eventually got it working in single channel but it also started freezing in that but not nearly as much. I think it has something to do with the voltages but not positive. Any Ideas?

    Have you manually adjusted the RAM voltage in BIOS? Download Memset and post a pic of that.

    Changed the RAM voltage and timings also tried changing the MCH voltage to 1.2V from 1.1V(Auto) but it would freeze before Windows loaded and sometimes in the BIOS

    pretty much the same problem i'm having

    everything works perfect in single channel, but dual channel makes it BSOD

    i have the p43-ds3l with gskill ram and e8400 core 2

    I had to set everything back to auto in the BIOS to stop the freezing and i only have one stick in it the now.

    We need more information!

    Has the PC ever worked flawlessly with the current settings?

    It also freezes in single channel, right?

    Post that screenshot of your memory timings in dual channel mode.



    Also try these settings under Advanced Timings

    static tRead Value: 12
    tRFC: 62

    Never in dual channel froze all the time

    Only a couple of times when playing Crysis and the BIOS setting were all at auto

    These settings are so-called "sub-timings". If they're too low (lower= faster) they can cause instability.
    It also can't hurt to set the normal timings to 5-5-5-18 to see if that improves stability.
