    Question PLZ help, My MOBO and RAM not working properly

    Hey guys I currently have a Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P ATX AM3 DDR3 AMD770 motherboard, and this RAM G.SKILL-Products

    I Ran MEmtest and I got over 100 errors, and beside where it says CAS, it says the timings are 9-9-9-24, when they should be 8-8-8-24. I honestly have no idea what is causing all these problems. My games are running messy, my internet browsing is messed.....I'm really fed up. My benchmark scores, windows ratings, and CPU temps are all fine, but my RAM is not working well with this motherboard.

    Plz give me some advice

    Thanks

    How can you benchmark properly if the RAM is failing on your motherboard??

    If the CAS timings are 9-9-9-24, then change them to 8-8-8-24, set the timings according to the information your given on the RAM package. If the RAM has an XMP profile (most likely not) then choose the XMP profile.

    Can u also give us the rest of your system specs? e.g CPU etc....

    I don't know how the benchmarks are getting good scores, but I can tell you that i'm getting over 100 errors in memtest. I set the timings to 8-8-8-24, and im still getting errors. I'le try the xmp profile, just not sure where to look.

    Which slots did u put the memory in? both in Blue or one in white and other in blue?

    To run in dual channel u must put both in blue, if errors still occur, try only one module in the top most blue slot and check each module individually for errors so maybe u can RMA it if its faulty.

    Okay so you;re saying I should put them side by side in the blue slots? Il'e try this and then if that doesnt work ile put them in one at a time and test. Before I had one card in the furhest white slot, and one in the blue slot in the middle.

    yeah, you did it wrong unfortunately.

    Put both in blue slots then memtest again, if doesnt work put a single one into the topmost blue slot (closest to cpu socket) and test each module individually.

    ZERO errors is the only acceptable value, did u do wat i told u to do?? try putting them both in blue slots and see if it works.

    If NOT then plug each module individually in the topmost blue slot and check for memtest errors.

    If any errors exist on any module, then u must check if anoher person is having the same issue, e/g try to put it into a friend's computer OR go to a compter shop and test it.

    If it fails then u know got a dud module then u can RMA it.

    I tried running them in dual channell like u said in the blue slots and it still failed, and the test stopped once I hit 64 errors. I tried to find the voltage in the BIOS, but I couldn't find the place where I can see if it is running at 1.5 volts. If posibly changing the voltage fails, I guess I should RMA?

    U must go to MIB Motherboard intelligent tweaker and voltages can be found there.

    Plus, B4 u RMA, you must test EACH module individually!!!

    So unplug both modules, and run memtest on each module seperately and see if it has errors.
