    Default E8500 at 4 GB

    I have a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P MOBO,E8500 processor,and OCZ Reaper DDR21066 memory. I have Overclocked the processor to 4 GB and the memory is at 1125. Will this be ok? I have run Memtest and Prime 95 and there was no problems.

    Surely you mean 4GHz. Speed is not a problem, settings might be. Use the template in this post to post your OC settings and ram specs and we'll be able to comment.

    How long did you run Memtest, and was it Memtest86+? If not, please use that, the latest version is here, I suggest 5-10 full passes or overnight
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Prime95 I suggest you run at least 12 hours, 24 to be sure

    If you edit the template with word ot word[ad please save it as text and open it with notepad the copy and paste in the forum.

    CPU Vcore/Termination/PLL on auto could be a problem, please post a screen capture of EasyTyne Tuner advanced voltage tab. Alt+PrintScreen will capture the front windows only.

    I don't have Word. I am beginning to believe that I don't have any problems. I was concerned about my memory running at 1125 MHz. I have run Prime95 and Memtest and they showed no problems. I thank you all for the help.

    We need to see all the settings, please use copy and paste with Notepad and you will be fine.


    How long did you test with those programs, and you are using Memtest86+ right?

    For us to see what voltages auto has set for PLL and CPU Termination, could you post a screenshot of EasyTune 6 (voltage tab)? As said, it's not a good idea to have these voltages on auto, with such a relatively high over clock.

    As long as temperatures (even uncalibrated ones) are generally in order, voltages including VDIMM, MCH Core, VTT (CPU Term), PLL and Vcore aren't excessive and the system has passed enough tests for you to deem it stable enough for your usage (I recommend at least 10 runs of IBT on max stress and 8 hours of Prime/Orthos blend, or the equiv. in OCCT) then you are fine.

    Also, if you want to run Memtest86 over night, then feel free to do so. I find that for me, a single full pass of all tests followed by at least 8 hours in Prime95, regardless of FFT length will reveal any RAM issues. It goes both ways though. Sometimes Memtest will pick up errors missed by Prime95, and other times a system that can run Memtest for 24 hours can fail with Windows stress tests.
