    Haha, I have a set of Blue ones myself :)

    Sounds good, ya once you get the Mushkin installed give me your current settings, what you'd like to achieve, and then I'll advise back

    just a rough 400fsb boot


    what i'd like to achieve is 1600+ on memory speed as the packaging on my mobo says is supported.
    failing that either 2 fried mushkins as undeniable proof there is something not right with the board or just the knowledge to not always believe what marketing tells you and be happy with low latency sub 1600mhz memory

    1600 is very hard for P45 trust me.

    Try this for 1600 then :)

    But yes, your best bet may be lower speed with tighter timings, and that would probably perform better too anyway.

    Default Re: Memory compatibility confirmation

    first run was through logo screen to point on black screen
    vcore 1.4
    vtt 1.36
    mch 1.36
    dram 1.8

    2nd was before logo "windows installing files" then reboot loop
    vcore 1.4
    vtt 1.4
    mch 1.4
    dram 1.8

    so i figured i was closer with the first run so did that again but dram to 1.8v



    what sort of voltage can these sticks take 24/7?
    on the subject of settings:- driving strength profiles can only have auto selected but underneath is data, cmd, ctrl, clk pull up (+1 -> +8 -> -7 -> -1) and same again but pull down

    did an ibt run with hardware monitor running so you had more info

    Don't use ram voltage 1.8!! I am not sure what they can take, I've only used up to 1.75 or so on air, and 1.9 frozen.

    I do know after 1.75 or so they don't scale, and they only need 1.6-1.65 to do 1600 so it's the ram voltage that's the issue here.

    Do that again with much more Vtt instead of ram voltage, MCH back down a bit too (try 1.24-1.34).

    Drive strength leave auto then.

    Ram was actually set to 1.86v oops typo

    Anyway I tried up to
    Vcore 1.5
    Vtt 1.46
    Pll 1.56
    Mch 1.36
    Dram 1.7

    And it didn't post

    So you think maybe the ram voltage is the issue which is why I probably need the older higher voltage ram?

    No, I think it's just the memory type. As I mentioned before, and you were told by the technicians, this type of memory just isn't designed to run on these boards.

    I've seen a few users be able to get it going, but not many. The older higher voltage ram would be much easier to get going yes, but not at 1600, that would still be hard too.

    You should try 1333Mhz for now and then move up towards 1500 after you get 1333Mhz tested and stable. For 1333Mhz you can try 6-8-6-20 timings, or possibly even 5-7/8-5

    i have had 1540 @ 6-7-6-15 with the gskills should i just be happy there until some older ram pops up in the classifieds? or just sell the qx9650 and the p45t extreme and chip in a couple of bucks and go sandybridge? LOL

    That sounds good, the Mushkins can probably do that or better.

    I've ran similar sticks at 5-8-5 and 5-7-5 at and close to 1600, so I'm sure you could probably do 5-8-5 at least at 1333-15xx.

    Yes, Sandy Bridge would be a great move, if you are ready!

    AMD Bulldozer is coming out later this year, maybe it's worth waiting and see where the wind blow.
