I've recently upgraded my cpu (from C2D E6600 to C2Q Q9450) and have been having problems ever since.
First I was getting errors within seconds on Prime95 along with application crashes and blue screens. So after sending it back, having it tested and it being fine, I bought a new heatsink + fan and raised the voltage a little and it *seems* to be running stable on low ram usage in Prime95 (1st test option).
Now when I try and run the high ram usage tests it errors in around 3-6 mins.
I've got 4 sticks of ram, 2x1GB Elixir stuff and 2x2gb OCZ Gold.
I've tested each stick of ram one by one and they still error..
Is it a memory timing problem? I've tried multiple timings: 555 - 15, 555 - 18, 555 - 12, 444 - 12
and they all seem to error. (firefox also crashed twice just trying to post this!) Running out of ideas now :S
thanks in advance!
p.s the ram was running fine with my old cpu, even after trying the new cpu, then replacing the old one (with cmos resets each time).
