Ram issue, help please

Hi I am running a DFI Lanparty P35-T2RS with 4 x 1024 Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500. now i can only get the system stable with 2 gigs of ram running at 4-4-4-12 2T 2.2v which is the timings for running at PC2-6400 which this board supports. I put in 4 sticks I get BSOD after a little while, running 2 sticks everything runs perfectly. I am using Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit

The cpu is running at stock settings E6750 is the cpu, 8800gts 512mb video card

I can't seem to find a resolution to this problem as all the sticks pass memtest not sure what other tests I can run

please help

    ive had nothing but good luck with my DFI board and hope these two links can help you with yours
  2. Don't need to use any other memory test if your ram checks out in memtest. It's good.

    I think you need a Vista update to run 4GB+. Also, up the vdimm a notch above the specs. Ballistix can take up to 2.4-5v.
  3. I had a similar problem although no BSOD... I received a ton of Memtest errors when I had 4 sticks (each 1 GB) but received no Memtest errors with combinations of 2 sticks. (I have a Gigabyte P35-DS3P and Patriot Extreme PC2-6400 ram at 4-4-4-12.) The Patriot RAM said those timings required 2.1v so I set +0.3 in the BIOS. I actually got rid of the Memtest errors when I reduced the voltage to +0.25 or 2.05v... so you might want tot try reducing the voltage on the RAM.
