    Exclamation Gigabyte EP45-UD3P MemTest86+ Fails Memory After 8 Hours

    Hi everyone, I am running 8gbs of OCZ memory on my board. I had been having some issues that prompted me to test my memory for problems. So I ran memtest86+ and about 8 hours in it came back with errors (screens attached). I have 4 2gb chips in there all the same brand and type purchased individually.

    I noticed that by default gigabyte in the bios has 3 options for DRAM configuration standard, turbo and something else. By default turbo is enabled and I was wondering if this could possibly cause Memtest86+ to fail.

    Yes, I do advise you set that to standard. If you still have issues after doing that, please provide us with your full settings and we can advise.

    thanks Lsdmeasap. I am just put the memory all back in and set the setting to standard. Odd that gigabyte sets it to turbo by default. Another day wasted I'll have to let this run at 10 hours.

    I'll post when its done.

    OK ran testing all of today 13 hours and got a failure with the standard setting in bios as well.

    I have now tested 2 pieces at a time and not gotten failures when 2 chips are in. I have tested just about every combination but when I test 2 chips at a time I don't get the failure. What should I do?

    Come on, you can't possibly run this RAM at 1.8v hoping for 1066MHz error free.

    Go to the OCZ website and look up the type of RAM you have and the voltage required to run the RAM at the spec'ed timing and speed.

    HI lightfusion, wow no kidding? I usually just build rigs and run things at stock. Didn't think having 8gigs would mean tweaking the stock memory settings.

    On newegg (ocz site isn't coming up now) it says the ram runs at 2.1 volts but why would the gigabyte bios only be giving 1.8 in auto mode?

    Just jacked up the voltage to 2.1 in the bios with all 8gigs installed and running memtest86+ again. I'll be back to report, thanks again everyone :)

    Default Re: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P MemTest86+ Fails Memory After 8 Hours

    Yes for sure you would need to set 2.0-2.15 or so for your ram if it is rated to 2.1. Auto in the BIOS is setup for a Standard 1.8V (JEDEC)

    I do see issues above, and think you will continue to have them until you start over. Please load optimized defaults, you are starting from Fail Safe now and that is a issue because many hidden settings, and visible ones, will not be properly set per your hardware.

    If you are using RAID please see here for tips on loading optimized w/ RAID >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    If you are not, please load optimized defaults and then set ONLY your ram voltage and MCH Voltage then save/apply/reboot (F10)

    This is what I would suggest for you for the above setup, do not use these settings until you have loaded optimized and save/rebooted (Except for the Ram and MCH Voltage)

    Default Re: Gigabyte EP45-UD3P MemTest86+ Fails Memory After 8 Hours

    Lsdmeasap, didn't see this post till this morning. MemTest is at 7 hours yet. Usually fails around 8 and something hours.

    I made the change to the voltage: 2.1 and didn't change the MCH/ICH settings yet as just saw them. Should I stop the testing and do the load fail safe and the rest of the settings? Or is it safe to just finish up the tests and then make your suggested changes?
