    Default New memory fails memtest on X58-UD4P

    Hi all
    had some new mem delivered OCZ 3G1333LV6GK
    installed it at auto settings in bios and booted memtest86 3.5
    got 4% into test #0 and locked up ... back into bios and gave it more volts 1.64v ... ran memtest again and crashed at 7% this time causing a reboot.
    my old g.skill mem 3x1gb runs memtest86 3.5 fine .

    My question is could there be a problem with OCZ and memtest86 3.5 ? ie if it runs through 2.11 version is the memory ok , as i dont want to go through the hassle of rma if its ok

    Try it through Memtest86+ 2.11 under test #7 and if it fails that you might want to increase your QPI/VTT voltage a little bit and/or run your memory at 1.66V (though that shouldn't be necessary for your particular memory).

    I'll download mem 2.11 and give it a try ... i did have QPI/VTT set at 1.200 might it need to be higher ? .. is this the one that needs to stay within 0.5v of Dramm volts?

    Yes.

    And try 1.22V or 1.24V.

    well it passes memtest86 ver 2.11 on test #7 .. had volts at 1.22 on QPI/VTT and Dramm at 1.62 . back into bios and set volts to auto on both , ran memtest again passed ok .. rebooted into memtest86 ver 3.5 ..Crashed 3 sec after start.

    Now i dont know what to think .... the g.skill can pass both these versions but the OCZ only pass the 2.11 ver ....... think i should RMA it ?

    Is it possible to test with single sticks? This way you can find if there's just a faulty stick which will indicate the need for RMA.

    Tested a stick at a time all passed ok .. with all 3 in it fails , i have a feeling its a bios setting issue . The G-skill i have been using is 3x1gb so dosn't stress it as much i guess .

    mabey my board just dosnt get on with this memory.
