Memory Issue/Stability Tags: Memory Product Last response: March 10, 2010 10:16 PM in Memory Share Mouseturner March 9, 2010 6:06:11 PM I recently purchased the following items and have been having some system stability issues with the memory. ASUS P7P55D LGA 1156 OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) XMP-Ready Rev.2 Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor I first encountered problems while running 3D games and the game would just crash bring me back to my desktop so I tried running a memtest program and it failed shortly after running the test. I've gone into the bios and enabled XMP/Profile-1 but still can't keep the system stable. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks More about : memory issue stability ekoostik a b } Memory March 9, 2010 8:41:06 PM Have you tested the RAM with memtest86+ yet? Download it from: http://www.memtest.org then burn the ISO to a CD, reboot your computer and let it run a few passes, preferably overnight. Also, do you have the V set to the correct value? The NewEgg link doesn't say what the V needs to be. Look it up on OCZ's site and set the value in BIOS. m 0 l Mouseturner March 10, 2010 6:23:48 PM I changed the DRAM Frequency to DDR3-1333MHz instead of DDR3-1600MHz and the system seems to be stable for the time being. Maybe ASUS needs to put out a new bios version to accommodate this memory? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer ekoostik a b } Memory March 10, 2010 10:16:56 PM Do you have the latest BIOS? Instead of running with XMP turned on, try setting the values yourself. Change the memory multiplier (may be labeled SPD) from 10 to 12. Then set the timings by hand to 8-8-8-24. And be sure to set the RAM's V to the correct spec. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
