Hey guys I currently have a Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P ATX AM3 DDR3 AMD770 motherboard, and this RAM : http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=224

I Ran Memtest and I got over 100 errors, and beside where it says CAS, it says the timings are 9-9-9-24, when they should be 8-8-8-24. I honestly have no idea what is causing all these problems. My games are running messy, my internet browsing is messed.....I'm really fed up. My benchmark scores, windows ratings, and CPU temps are all fine, but my RAM is not working well with this motherboard.

Plz give me some advice

Thanks

go into your bios and either set manually the timing and voltage or try an xmp ready setting

I tried setting the timing myself and i'm still getting errors. What is an xmp ready setting?

those are saved in your memory that automaticly set your timing/voltage for the ram.
The only issue I see here is either faulty ram or incompatiblity

No they're definately compatible with my motherboard. It's on the compatability list. How do I set the voltage and other stuff.

1-Restart your computer and when it POST press delete. You will enter the bios.
2-Go into whatever looks like tweackable or tunning ( don't know the name by hearth)
3-Set your memory to manual and enter those number in order : 8-8-8-24 and manualy change the voltage to 1.5 volt.
4- You should also see a case where you can change your memory to 1,333mhz. Do so .
5- go last tabs and save and quit !

6-If it doesn't work, try a different memory slot. instead of A1 A2 try B1 B2 (Exemple : (A1) B1 (A2) B2 to A1 (B1) A2 (B2)

Ive tried changing the timings to the right ones which are 8-8-8-24, and I ran memtest using slots 1,3, and 2,4 , and even with them in dual channell mode in slots 1 and 2, and I still getting a bunch of errors. When I tried last night with them in dual channel mode, Memtest stopped running once I hit 64 errors. I looked under the voltage section in the BIOS and the lowest I think it went to was like 1.6v. Today I'm gonna try the sticks individually unless I can fix the problem by changing the voltage. If only one stick is bad, can I send it back and keep the good one?
