I got 2x4 each 2 is different (mixed ram chips)

I think my timing is causing freezes in my computer


What should my Timmings be set to?

Your timings look to have been set correctly. You are matching the lowest speed sticks timings and frequency.

If you have an option to chance the 1T command rate to 2T it may help matters as it stresses the memory controller less.

Also, sometimes a very small bump in memory voltage helps when running 4 sticks. I had to do that back with my Q6600 system.

If all else fails, try just the 2 newer sticks and see how they work. In rare occasions(it still happens), you can actually have memory that simply will not run together.

On the BIOS those settings were on Default/Auto (Default Settings)

My computer was freezing (On the DEFAULT SETTINGS)

But i lower the FEQ to 266MHZ hoping that fix i cant really tell because crash has no pattern and happen randomly (Sometimes few in our hours after computer to windows or few days/weeks.

well the slowest sticks are rated for 266 MAX, so if you had been trying for higher, no wonder it was crashing.

You can use something like [urlhttp://www.memtest.org/#downiso]memtest86+[/url] to test memory over night, it finds most errors that are bad enough to cause a crash.

If you get errors, you should try each stick one at a time to see if one is bad.

Higher numbers for timings are looser and thereby more easy to run stable.

I selected the 266MHZ (LOWEST) Just freezed than got 3xx Something Mhz and 400MHZ

Auto (When i Gave you people the details on the computer specs the option on this Auto )
266 Slected by just freezes
3xxMhz (I forgot the extact numbers) did not try
400MHZ (MAX) did no try

Try manual

133(266)
3,3,3,6 and the rest on auto, failing that, you are going to have to test the sticks in pairs. maybe they just do not work right together.
March 15, 2013 11:15:11 PM

I try that however the results may have to wait few mins to numbers of days/week because freezing is random



http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/window... someone had same issue almost related to mines


What i extactlly am i doing whats number do i put? and what should i change

NOTE: Forgot Also on Safe Mode freezed 1 time but i was different freezing
I do not know if is my video card which i bought last year on April 2012 or my Thermal Paste cause the issues really started on Jan 13 2013 (Before that it had the freezing problem (Between Jan 1-13 i had 2 Bluescreens PFN List Corrupt than few days later BAD MEMORY)

I did remove all memory clean slot and threw the 2 bad memory out and replaced with the non bad memory


I currently trying 2 Crosair (New Ones) first cause never tried that

Because the old non bad memory had bad memory chip next to it i decided take those out for see if it freezes
March 16, 2013 4:55:35 PM

Never mind i fixed timing was not the problem only 2 Non Bad Chips probaly was faulty so i removed computer is going faster

so 2 of the 4 sticks had problems? bad luck.

Lets hope it runs right now.
