    Sorry, I'm a noob. I meant 1066 MHZ. That's what I am currently running at with my pair of Kingston RAM. So far it's stable since I had to manually set this in BIOS. I am still curious to why 3 sticks of RAM would give me a BSOD. Running at he default settings with 3 sticks gives no POST, but running this at 1066 MHZ gives me a BSOD.

    OK, lets try this first:
    With the single stick at slot 1 load otimized defaults, ans et the following in M.I.T:
    Performance Enhance standard
    MCH Core 1.24v
    DRAM Voltage 2.0v

    In Advanced BIOS Features disable full screen logo.


    Save and reboot, shut the computer down, and add the pair in slots 2 & 4. That should result in them running at 800. And a message running in flex mode should show if the machine does post.

    Chike, I have set my BIOS with your specifications and here are the results;

    The one working from the "bad" set of RAM in slot 1 gave a series of beeps with no POST. I then added the good set of RAM in slots 2 and 4 with the other RAM still in slot 1, there were no beeps, but no POST.

    I did try this in the working 1066 MHZ configuration, but yielded the same results.

    I can definitely say that the working pair is operable in all slots with all combinations under 800 MHZ and 1066 MHZ settings without the additional stick of RAM.

    I am leaning towards a bad set of RAM...but then why would the good pair in slots 1 and 3 with the one in slot 2 give a BSOD? I mean, it went that far so I assume that one stick of RAM is still good. The other bad RAM is no good since beeps in any slot.


    And where is the guy that originally posted this? I'd like to see what he did to resolve this...

    If the one "good" stick does not work by itself in slot 1, while any other of the other set does, than it is probably not so good.
    Each RAM module must work alone before it is tested with other modules, as of the whys, there can be a few reasons, not worth speculating since it's seems bad.
    Get the bad pair RMAd.

    If each RAM has to pass individually in slot 1, then that means both RAM sticks from that kit are bad. It's already in an envelope and will be on it's way to Fountain Valley, CA tomorrow. As for my good set of RAM, each passed individually in slot 1.

    I'll try again once I get my new set back from Kingston, which will be in a month. =*(

    Thanks again.

    It doesn't have to be slot 1, but of course if it pass in one of the slots and fail in another it may mean the slots are bad.
    Currently keep the sticks in slots 1 & 3, when you get the replacement put each kit in it's own channel.
    Good luck with RMA.

    Alright gang, I just received my RMA RAM in the mail the other day and finally had the chance to install them. The bottom line, it works! Thanks!

    My original two RAM sticks are in slots 1 and 3, the two new ones are in 2 and 4. They ran fine under factory settings. I am now running these bad boys in 1066 MHZ with the following settings reconfigured, the rest are in factory settings.

    Primary memory timings = 5-5-5-15
    DRAM Voltage = 2.00 Volts
    MCH Core Voltage = 1.16 Volts


    Let's see if my system will crash. I probably just jinxed myself just now. Thanks for the help guys.

    From the Kingston datasheet link in post #11:
    Timing Reference: 5-5-5-18 at +1.8V / 5-5-5-15 at +2.2V - 2.3V
    With my P35 mobo, I'm running (Kingston T1) 8GB at 874MHZ with 4-4-4-10 timings and 2.20 Dram voltage.
    I think that you will need to set MCH Core = 1.24 - 1.28 volts for a stable setup.

    You will need to stress test your system using Prime95 or HCI-Memtest in windows for an extended length of time.
    My preference is to first boot with Memtest86+ v4.x from a cd/dvd, usb, or floppy and run several full loops (all 8 tests) followed by 10 - 15 loops (or more) of the #5 test.

    If you don't run Memtest86+ initially, you run the risk of corrupting your boot partition.
    This isn't a big deal if you have a very recent image of your boot partition that is NOT in your boot partition.

    **edit**
    How old is your power supply?
    No offense, but every HEC psu review from the top tier review sites that I've seen gives HEC power supplies a poor rating.
