    Ignore any results you get from Memtest86 version 3.5. It has known issues, especially with more current DDR3 low voltage kits. This info is from a mix of reading over at XS and from Lsdmeasap too.

    If your Modules pass both a looped test 7 and a couple of full passes of all tests using Memtest86+, then your RAM is just fine. Do not RMA on the strength of a failure in Memtest86 3.5. If you want more confirmation I'm sure Lsdmeasap will post. Searching the forum may also reveal the last post where he mentioned this.

    Yeap, it is just not up to date yet for these boards and Memtest86+ 2.11 is suggested.

    I suggest running 5-10 full passes, or overnight if you can. And as said above test 5 and or 7 looped will also be a good stress test.

    How to set Test # can be found in the memory sticky here in Post #2

    It passes the Memtest86+ 2.11, tested each stick then all 3 together , didnt do a full overnight yet though . And the other Memtest86 3.5 still crashes with all 3 sticks in, as has been explained its not supporting all the new stuff yet.

    I have been a fool though i realized this memory i have is not really up to overclocking i can get it to run at 1600 only at 1.66v and above anything less windows blue screens.
    So i'll look out for some 1600 rated sticks , and get the ones i have exchanged.

    What is the BSOD Code? Most all ram that is rated 1600 will do much higher, once you fine the proper settings. You can see the DDR3 reviews I just posted for a few examples of this, both of those are 1600Mhz kits and will do 2000+

    Here is what the BSOD Codes mean, you will see a number similar to this on the left middle side of the screen if it does not happen to fast on you >>

    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
    0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage


    Random other codes could be anything, often memory timings or other voltages though

    The memory i have is only rated at 1333 so i am pushing it trying to overclock with this*grin* ,its OCZ3G1333LV6GK

    The bsod codes where 124 most of them anyway , and yeh it goes to fast to see but when windows starts again it comes up with the crash message and you can see the code in there.
    I checked your Guide and found the 124 codes ..and upped the qpi/vtt volts
    to 1.260 and that stabalized it with the dramm at 1.66v

    Have a better air coller comming today a Noctua ..so looking forward to clocking it higher later ...whats your thoughts on this memory i have ? should i change it for better or just throw volts at it?

    Ahh well still, so are some 1600, but you may be right you may be pushing it towards it's limit

    124 code as you seen is QPI/Vtt, to pass 1600+ Mhz you may need 1.35-1.4 or more

    I would definitely try more QPI/Vtt and IOH to 1.24-1.26 before I decided it was at it's limit.

    You may need to use CAS 8 or 9, but if you have to use 9 to reach or pass 1600 then you may want to think about a new kit if you want to keep running at 1600Mhz. That is if you have the spare $$, and DDR3 is cheap these days so it may be easy for you to grab a new kit if you look in the right places

    I'm on a bugdet which is why i kicked myself for impulse buying that cheaper ramm . It will go to 1600 but only stable at 9,9,9,20
    At 1333 7,8,7,18 its stable with QPI\VTT @ 1.22v , IOH @ 1.200v, Dramm @ 1.64v

    Will not post at 1600 7,8,7,20 with QPI@1.35, IOH@ 1.22, Dramm@ 1.66

    This is available at my supplier within, my budget it might do a better job

    Did you try QPI/Vtt 1.35-1.45 at 1600Mhz with those timings?

    Ya that ram would be good, CAS 7 at defaults at 1600.

    As would these, CAS 8 default but can do CAS 7 with proper tweaking

    That G.Skill has good timmings ... the small problem i'm going to have is when i fit my Noctura cooler, its big and overhangs 1 mabey more of the ram slots , so high heat sinks on ram is a problem ...i'll have to see later today.

    If it looks like it will fit i could strech to the g.skill.
