Blue Screen Suspected Ram

Last response: in Memory
June 9, 2013 12:53:16 PM

OS: Windows 7 64bit
Mobo: ASrock Z77 Extreme4
Gcard: GeForce GTX 660
Ram:CORSAIR Vengeance x 2
CPU: i5-3570K 3.4GHz

It seems when I play "Metro: Last Light" and a few other games it will play fine for about 10 - 15 minutes before a blue screen crash occurs.

Graphics run fine no stuttering or lost frame rate.

From what I have been reading it might be based on my RAM. I am not sure so I wanted to see if anyone had a better hunch.

Mobo Supported Ram

I have tested my two 8gb sticks solo and together but it seems this issue still happens. I noticed it is not on the supported list.

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: d1
BCP1: 0000000000001014
BCP2: 0000000000000006
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: FFFFF88005A7BD15
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1

Exactly what DRAM do you have, the model #, and does the '2 x' mean two sets, 2 sticks, or what? big differences of a single set of 2 sticks or 2 packages of DRAM. Good thing is I'm running the 3570K on the same mobo and have had good luck running tons of different sets, should be able to get this to work

Model # is CML8GX3M1A1600C10B

I meant I have two single sticks of this memory. 1 per box (2 packages). Each being 8gb.

(if this issue doesnt end up being ram I apologize but there has never been a cpu issue or graphics. If it is not memory I will have to assume there is a mobo issue.)

OK, no problem, first thing, just for future ref and info, it's not a good idea to mix packages of DRAM even of the same exact model, it can prove to be problematic. That being said, let's get to work, first, it's a good idea to have the latest BIOS, though if you recently got the mobo it should have one that'll work. Let's have the sticks in slots 1-3 from CPU, and initially try setting the freq manually to 1600, set the base timings manually 10-10-10-27, CR to 2T, and DRAM voltage to 1.55, also go to the CPUVTT voltage and set it to 1.14 then give it a whirl and let me know, I'll be out for about an hour and half then be back and check the boards here.

I changes the voltages and freq manually and it seems to work now. Where is the timing option in the bios?

On the tweaking page, believe 1 or 2 down from the XMP option, take a look , if you don't see it, (think it's timing Options or DRAM timings) if you don't see it, let me know and I'll boot and check am recording a movie on this rig right now, so it may be a little while)

Found screen shots on a flash drive - it's on the OC tweaker pge, under the Load XMP settings - click on the DRAM CONFIGURATION entry

Okay (on cell atm) soon as I'm done on metro ill change the timing. One odd non ram question if you know. My ports are working for my front and rear headphone jacks but it won't pick up my mic no matter what (though) it detects it. I did the dricers over checked to see if the volume was low. I have the hd audio plugged in but one of my pins had no slot to go in near there so its unplugged. Think it might be that? Or do you know the writing that goes on the mobos mic plug in?

To be honest, not sure, I don't use mikes and haven't had any clients call with problems so haven't run into that before.
