    Default Re: Blue screen constant crashes

    First I've tested it by booting it one by one and it worked ok.

    But today I've let the memtest run over the night and I've got around 115000 errors when using all 3 RAM sticks. ( 9 passes )

    Later I've run the memtest using only one stick at the time and I've got no errors at all ( 2 passes for each stick ). All the tests we're made on the same slot.

    I've noticed one more thing with rams. Didn't check if there's any difference at all, but when I rad the sisoft sandra I had CM3X2G1600C8D model, but it shows TR3X6G1600C8D model on the RAM label itself.

    I had a day without errors... Havent changed anything tho.

    btw I've also found 3Gb DDR3 memory at home and installed it.
    They are the exact same memory modules. The only difference is that they are 1Gb each.

    So I have 9Gb now. What are your toughts on that ? will I benefit much from it? I mainly use my PC for programming, 3D renderings,games and the usual web stuff.

    This will only make your problems worse. Please stick with 6GB for now until you figure out the problem.

    Can you please show me a image of 3 instances of CPU-z running at the same time, showing SPD Tab one for each stick. Just want to make sure they all match, and are what you ordered.

    So also provide a link to the kit you bought.

    While you are back at 6GB give me your full settings, hopefully the same as your testing above when you tested all three with Memtest86+

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Heres the link for the Cpu-z info
    http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/2628/spuz.jpg

    I dont know what to give you for the product info, since the shop that I bought the PC at, doesnt have any online prices (list of the components that they sell), and the labels on the memory sticks show different model than the Cpu-z,sisoft sandra.

    Here's the link for the model if I trust the labels on the sticks (TR3X6G1600C8D ver3.2 )
    http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/TR3X6G1600C8D.pdf

    If I check the Corsair's official page the model ( CM3X2G1600C8D ) doesnt even exist. That's the model that's shown in Cpu-z or Sisoft sandra.

    I didn't changed the voltages at all, so I won't break the warranty, in case I'll need to replace them.

    Hope this isn't too confusing and sorry if my english is bad :)

    Thanks, Anze

    I've checked some forums and discovered that TR3X6G1600C8D is shown for KITs and CM3X2G1600C8D is used for individual sticks... so the data sheet is correct.

    Thanks, looks like they all match, that is good. And ya that is the correct label for that model and PDF is correct as well.

    Can you please give me the full settings in the template?

    Warranty for voltage changes? Are you serious? If you cannot adjust voltages on this system you should send it back and get your money refunded and build your own.

    No way you can run a overclockers board without voltage changes, Auto WILL NOT work 99% of the time, even at stock speeds.

    Sorry for the rant :) Did you mean memory voltage? if so, my bad! You would need to set your memory voltage to 1.66, this will be fine for warranty

    But if you are really not allowed to change all other voltages and settings in your BIOS due to some warranty where you bought the machine then my above rant applies

    I decided I'll just change the voltages of the RAM...
    After I've changed the voltage to 1.66V I've ran a memtest and it passed with 0 errors on one Pass

    So you did just mean memory voltage for warranty? If so, ya using more is fine anyway, your warranty would be good to 1.7+ anyway as they allow for voltage variances between boards anyway. The memory would not be damaged either, DDR3 must allow up to 1.8 before damage is even close to happening, this is by JEDEC Standards.

    You only need to worry about keeping your QPI/Vtt within a .5 difference of your memory voltage, this is where the 1.65 rule comes from

    Try these adjustments, should help with stability issues if you run into any, and improve performance
