Thread: GA-EP45-DS3 wit 4x2(=8GB) Ram - Errors and Settings

    The same occurs for me using 8gb as it does using 4. I have a real suspicion that this ram doesnt like my board. Have you tried with different ram?

    Report back when you've done that.

    Settings all as posted above (GA-EP45-DS3 wit 4x2(=8GB) Ram - Errors and Settings - TweakTown Forums), except FSB: 333 and tRFC: 80.
    Memtest86+ error after ~12 min. test5.

    I do have some other ram (4x1GB) but since the system runs fine with just 4GB Gskill, I don't think testing some other 4Gb will help.
    I don't have another 8GB ram for testing.

    If you test 4x1gb and it has the same problem, you will know its one of the slots

    It can't be one of the slots, when I've tested the 4GB kits seperatly I tested one kit in slots 1+3, the other in 2+4 and had no errors, so slots are not the problem.

    So you're sure that every stick is running fine? How long did test the two kits for?

    In your first post you wrote that it's only stable with one stick, but not with 2 or 4...

    You should be testing each stick one by one to be sure they are all fine. Run a full Memtest86+ 5 times on each stick. Then if they are all known to be good you can test the slots if you are not sure one by one with the same 1 known good stick for 5 passes each of memtest86+

    For 8GB you may need to tweak your MCH Ref voltage, this is true for most any setup as the stock of .76 is often to much. Please see my sig on how to adjust this.

    And for 8GB you may need more MCH Voltage, not sure as you have not posted your full settings. Please do give me your settings fully that you are now trying that fail and I will try to help you out

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours
