    Default Gigabyte EP45-DS3L with Corsaire XMS2

    I have a Gigabyte EP45-DS3L using an Intel E8400 CPU.

    I have 2 sticks of Corsaire 2B XMS2 ram but i'm having problems getting the system to run stable.

    using stock voltage (1.8v) on stick will run fine in any slot, and i've run each stick through memtest a few times. also run memtest with both sticks installed and all is fine.

    i've been slowly increasing the voltage of the sticks as i believe the should be run at 1.9v, but it always seems to become a bit unstable after a while. Programs most prone to crashing are firefox and AVG.

    Anyone any ideas?

    Thanks

    What is the exact model number of the kit, if you are not sure link us to where you bought or show CPU-z SPD tab

    If it's 2x2GB, you probably need to increase MCH voltage to 1.15-1.25, this is often needed with 4GB or more

    Thanks! Those are 1.8V rated, so no need to increase ram voltage unless you have issues

    You will need to set MCH voltage as I mentioned though, but the ram voltage should be fine at 1.8V

    Can you pleas attach CPU-Z text report to your next post?
    CPU-Z > About tab -> Save Report (.TXT), then in the furum "Go Advanced" and attach via "Manage Attachments".

    It's because you never clicked the registration email, but we've been having email issues so it may not have got sent.

    I'll resend to you now, check your spam, if you don't get it let me know and I'll change your account to registered manually.

    For now, you can upload the file to any file host you want, like this one if you like
    Free Cloud Storage - MediaFire

    OK lets begin with screen caprure of CPU-Z CPU, Motherboard, Memory, and SPD tabs, and EasyTune ->Advanced -> Voltage tab if you have ET6 installed.
    You can run several instances of CPU-Z and capture all together, then crop only the area you need (win7 paint) or copy the desired area, and earase anything that is not needed. Save as PNG file, and opload to tinypic.com and paste the forum link they provide here.

    i should probably add that after trying to increase the MCH voltage in steps, i ended up loading the failsafe bios defaults as it became even more unstable. and now it appears to be reasonably steady.
