    No worries! I just asked because you only posted two images and then nothing else, so I wasn't sure what was going on

    Default Re: BSOD Error codes....

    Hi Guys I have some more error codes from aGA-EP45-DS3R (rev1.0) board. They are from a bad stick of RAM as far as I know.
    Here they are:
    *** STOP: 0X0000000A (0XFF55D390......) IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL this is the first Blue screen I got after I changed memory settings.
    *** STOP: 0X00000024 ......................... NTFS.sys_address B7E7BFCE base at B7E5B000 Datestamp 48025be5
    *** STOP: 0X0000008E ......................... Win32k.sys_address BF801EDB base at BF800000 datestamp 4f0f0ff9
    The reason I suspect bad memory is I removed one stick and BLUE screens stopped. With two sticks in the memtest shows lots of errors(memtest included in the GRUB boot loader-most current version I believe).
    If I need to test more please advise, thanks....

    Hi Lsdmeasap, I think I have one bad stick of RAM, but am still testing when not using my PC(only one stick at a time). Here are my voltages with Easytune 6 (B11.0823.1)

    And here is a updated Memset ss of remaining memory. I am working on the
    BIOS template now some settings need a bit of overvolting to register correctly in easytune, such as the reference settings I set to .910volts in BIOS and in easytune it shows up as .810volts.

    I didn't see no 0.810 in easytune, at 250MHz you shouldn't need t touch any of those.

    Here is the preliminary BIOS template which will be modified as advised for better performance. Note: I have only one stick of memory installed as one stick went bad I believe, so I may need to check into a memory survey and consider purchasing memory in the coming months. I am on a tight budget now so value for the dollar is extra important now and any special offers must be considered as well. Note the Blackline memory is no longer being offered by Mushkin so I am at a loss for what to do other than going with a different brand like Gskill :)

    Why should you buy new memory when you have liftime warrenty?
    What exactly are you trying to do? Can't do much with stock cooler.
    and your E8400 is overclocked to 3.16GHz(your sig say MHz)? With a Mugen 2?

    You dont see it cuz I saw it first when I had BIOS settings at .9 manual, Easytune displayed .810. I realized this may not be right so I set BIOS at auto to get a good ss I may set it later at a slightly higher value to get reccomended values. This may need to be done as I have lots of setting at auto now. Take these settings for example CPU ref is auto,static Tread is auto,MCH ref is auto ...please advise. Editing my sig now I adjusted the MCH freq latch just before my ram problem did i mess up by setting to 400 setting?

    But what is the goal? Is this final CPU OC? What is the goal?
    If it is you can set Vcore to normal and LLC enabled I believe for such minor OC.

    I guess the goal for now is/was (when I started out) to get system BIOS settings confirmed at a low OC for now. I just finished installing a new drive again, as the previous ones either had firmware problems, or were too slow to be of use for main drive. Its a WD 640 GB SATA2 as seen in my updated sig. I have always wondered how to just choose settings for a moderate OC(or a baseline setup in the BIOS to start out). If you did not know, I just flashed to F11i BIOS to test as well and I just want to be sure of settings. Maybe later I will add the other Mugen cooler, that I have sitting around, on this beast (as time allows). But mainly, I would like to avoid messing up the other stick of RAM for now and just get a moderate OC on a stock cooler.
    Thanks I will try your advice.
