    I think so...

    Hit "c" to enter configuration and select/deselect tests. Note that any memory test cannot possibly exhaust all data read/write/copy patterns, and cannot therefore guarantee that the memory is error-free. It can detect common errors (so positives are pretty much conclusive), or fail to detect errors for many data patterns (so negatives are inconclusive but increasingly conclusive for more test patterns). So, a clean memtest loop is really an indicator that the memory's fine. :-)

    I'll try MCH at 1.0, then the vtt/mch combination you suggest.

    Memtest86+ run overnight doesn't show any errors, but could my Crucial Ballistix PC8500 memory be causing the issue? I doesn't happen every time I boot, only when the PC has been powered down completely overnight with the PSU isolated from the mains it appears.

    Ahh well that could indicate a failing CMOS Battery possibly. What voltage do you see for the VBAT Battery in Everest Sensor page?

    Why do you unplug the PC At nigth anyway? It would not use any amount of power worth doing so, so I thought I would ask

    How long are you running Memtest86+, how many full passes? I would advise 5-10 or overnight to be sure. If you are passing then it is not your memory causing issues. Maybe the BIOS version or your other voltage settings.

    To run specific tests in Memtest86+ you do this (Incase anyone wonders later. This is noted also in the Memory Sticky) >>>

    1. First press C

    2. Then 1

    3. Then 3

    4. Select the test that you want to run

    5. Press Enter

    6. And then 0 to get it running

    VBAT shows 3.07v

    I turn the PC off at the wall overnight out of habit, just because there's a couple of power transformers plugged in to the power block for the external hard drive and TFT screen. Probably not necessary I guess. I've also got an amplifier plugged in. Turning it off at the wall means I don't have to switch everything off individually.

    I've just run memtest86+ for 7-8 hours and it's run all tests 10 times without showing an error.

    If you are still having issues and none of that helps, please post me the full settings you are using again and a screenshot of this program so I can see what Auto gives you for some of those values >>>
    Tweakers.fr ~ Memset
    OK - MCH tried at 1.0, and also 1.24 with Vtt as you sugggest above with no difference. As I've said before, if I shut down the PC and wait several minutes then reboot I don't have a problem. Beepng on booting only seems to happen after a prolonged power down (and leaving the mains supply connected doesn't actually help I've found out too).

    I'l repost my full settings and memset for you to take a look at.

    To cut a long story short I was able to try 4x1GB sticks of PC6400 Kingston memory last night with default BIOS settings which cured the beeping. I then tried one stick of my PC8500 Ballistix alone which worked OK with default BIOS settings apart from 5-5-5-15 manual timings and 2.2v RAM voltage. Then I tried the second stick of Ballistix and the beeping came back until I switched the two sticks around. Then I added the third and finally the forth and it all seems OK.

    Time to quit whilst I'm ahead me thinks!
