    OK To ProfJim: regarding the memtest86+ tests...I put the other stick(which I thought was bad) in for testing.
    Surprisingly the memory passed the default test in memtest. Now, I am scratching my head a bit if the memory is not bad then what is bad? I still have the second custom test to do now which should not take long. Then I will try to test in the second dual slot with the known good stick first, then then questionable stick next. Also, will I have to test with memory in all slots? or just the first two main slots? (designated in the manual as the dual channel slots yellow in color). One other possible problem is the Beta BIOS update to F11i which I hope is not a problem. I can Flash back to F11e if needed, when advised.
    To Chike: I am not sure what the specs are on that CPU right now. I recall doing a little research on the differences between the two CPUs and the E8400 can OC quite nicely.

    The CPU-Z the main panel will show the Revision number and it should be C0 or E0; this is the stepping number.

    I would test with both modules install in slots 1 & 3. If there are Memtest86+ errors, then you should test each module individually, first in slot #1 and then repeat this test using slot #3. A bad mobo memory slot is rare, but it can happen. It's up to you if you also want to test slots 2 & 4.

    It's possible that one or more of your BSODs were caused by bad bios settings.

    Don't use the "D" memory strap when the cpu host frequency is set lower than 400MHz.
    With the "B" memory strap, you have 4 options: 2.00, 2.40, 3.20, and 4.00.

    It would help if you posted your most recent bios settings so that we know what worked.

    note: MCH Core = 1.1 is fine with only one memory module installed.
    Use MCH Core = 1.22 or 1.24 with both modules installed and with stock cpu settings.

    Don't rush to push MCH Core try all the range from 1.16 to 1.24v. My board does perfectly stable with 1.18v at 450MHz FSB and DDR-1080. The less you can use the better.
    Test the module in the slot it's going to be installed in.
    Are you testing DDR-800 or DDR-1066? DDR1066 must pass.
    After one pass of memtest86+ run a few passes of test #5 (press c, 1, 3, 5, enter, and 0).
    If no errors then it;s Prime95 time, you can customize the blen test and set 128k min FFT, and run it few hours (>= 6)

    EDIT I mean test the one module that you have thought to be bad in the slot it will be used, then both of them with memtest86+ and only then Prime95.

    System Memory Multiplier -------------- : [2.66B and 3.20B]
    Correction: 2.66C and 2.66D are available options, as is 2.40B.
    2.66B is NOT an option.

    Keep your DRAM Voltage @ 2.00 - 2.02. Your Mushkin 996599 runs best with ~ 2.00 volts. Its 2.10 max voltage setting is seldom needed unless you are trying for higher than 1100MHz, don't bother, it's not worth it ;)

    What are the minimum MCH Core voltage increments for your motherboard? +0.02? +0.10? +0.25?

    Chikes MCH Core recommendation is generally correct, but....
    ....your 2x2GB 996599 memory usually needs MCH Core that is at least 1.22 volts or higher with 4-4-4-12 timings below ~875MHz and 1.24 - 1.28 volts with higher memory speeds using 5-x-x-x timings. This is based on my personal experience and from stable settings from the Tweaktown and Mushkin forums. These are ballpark guidelines for P35/P45 motherboards. There are no hard and fast rules, as there will be some variations with each motherboard and/or memory kit. With some memory brands/models, MCH Core voltage can be set significantly lower, and in a few cases less than 1.00 volts.
    MCH Core voltage that is too high or too low will often cause boot loop problems and/or instability, including BSODs.

    Your system might be more stable with Static tRead Value (aka tRD) manually set to 7 for both memory channels with your current settings. Using the AUTO tRD setting hurts overall performance and sometimes leads to instability.

    It will help us if you provide a screen shot that includes:
    • cpu-z CPU and Mainboard screens (several instances can be run at the same time)
    • EasyTune6 --> TUNER tab --> ADVANCE tab --> VOLTAGE tab (only the Voltage tab is needed)
    • CoreTemp screen [for your cpu's VID (Voltage ID)]
    • CoreTemp or RealTemp to display maximum and minimum temperatures when running Prime95 or IBT/LinX stress tests.


    Including a single screen shot of these programs let's us easily verify some of your posted bios settings.
    Your screen shot will be more readable if the image width is 800 - 900 pixels wide.
    If you place all the program screens close together, you can create a smaller image by cropping and eliminating the unused portions of the screen.
    When you post a screen shot, please include a brief update such as: Currently running XXXXX with # memory modules installed.

    (G)MCH Frequency Latch is just a visual setting, whem other than auto SMM will show the multipliers for that strap only.
    Since we always state the letter with the multiplier it is no needed, and we often want a multiplier from another strap that may work as well, so best leave it auto.
    I actually recommended 6 for tRD and 5 may also work so between 7 and 5, 6 is a comromise.
    For 350MHz FSB use 7.

    Ya sorry I got the letter wrong, I am trying 3.20B now if thats ok for a full speed on the ram of 1066MHz The memory is rated for 1066MHz speed and so I would like to see if any errors appear. I think the problem was indeed the wrong MSH Freq latch. Sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused. I also changed the MCH Core voltage to 1.22 for two sticks. I also set the Static Tread to 7 as well. The Increments are 0.020 for the MCH core.
    Guess I need to run Prime 95 to get temps now........

    Thumbs down Re: GA-EP45-DS3R and Core 2 Quad Q8200

    Max, how many and which tests did you complete so far? How long or how many loops did each test complete?
    If you're going to do incomplete tests using various settings, you won't know if any of the the partial tests are "fully" stable and you'll have no stable fall back setup.
    You're wasting your time if you're going to bounce around doing partial tests and then trying different memory/cpu speeds and settings.

    If this is the way you're going to test, I'm outta here and others can decide if they want to continue to help.
    I don't have a problem if you want to run somewhat shorter stress tests, it's your system and you risk corrupting your files if you don't do thorough stress testing.

    I don't have a problem if you want to run somewhat shorter stress tests, it's your system and you risk corrupting your files if you don't do thorough stress testing.
    OK I was testing one stick at a time then you say i should test two at a time first, so I did that. I did the memtest64+ v2.20 with the default test for at least one full pass at first, then the test you recommended for at least 10-15 passes. The reason for the multiple settings for the memory is that I was a little confused about the multplyer that I ran the first test with, so I included a few posibilities. I think I have narrowed it down to either running memory at 800 or 1066 speeds for now during testing. And chike did suggest that I run at full rated speed to test memory. I have been running tests most of the day for memtest and would check in periodically to see if the post was updated or to answer any questions and get direction. I do recall that you said I should run some tests overnight like the prime 95 i believe. Tonight would be an ideal time to do some tests like that.
    And running Lin X in windows has not been done yet Need to DL it I got prime 95 now Sorry you did state to try 1066 speed I just saw that sorry.

    Default Re: GA-EP45-DS3R and Core 2 Quad Q8200

    Memtest86+ v4.20 is the current latest version and you should be using this version for testing.
    We need ongoing updates to best help you.

    If a test fails or has problems, post a brief update with the settings you used and detail what the problems were.
    This way we know exactly what problems you've encountered. Error details are important!!!
    You don't need to post the full bios settings each time, but we need to know what new settings you're using for the followup tests.

    Once you have a "reasonably" stable setup, we can suggest how you can cut some corners with somewhat shorter stress tests.
    It wastes your time and ours if we have to keep asking for more detailed test information.
    We can't offer good suggestions if we only have part of the information/details that we need.
