The RAM is supposed to run at 1033 with the default 8 memory multiplier and a BCLKJ of 133.
1. Load the straight (non optimized) defaults. Now enter the BIOS and manually set the RAM timings to what is on the box. Go back and set the memory multiplier to 12 and the CPU multiplier to 12. BCLK should still be stock at 133.33 (12 x 133.33 = 1600). In case you're wondering, setting the CPU multiplier to 12 takes CPU stress outta the equation .... if you get a failure at CPU x 12...it's perty darn sure it wasn't the CPU that was training.
2. Run memtest+ from www.memtest.org for 12-18 hours...if passes keep going
3. Change CPU multiplier back to Auto
4. Run OCCT CPU, memory and PSU torture tests.....watch tempos on screen while running 1st 10 minutes look at temp and voltage graphs at end for any anomalies.
I must confess i let it run for 2 passes. Ive loaded it back up and its now at pass 9./ 5hours. So far no errors
What exactly is the result im looking for?
to see if there IS errors. If there is errors, then it means your ram i bad and you need to RMA ( Happens decently often ). Letting it run the night while you sleep is ideal, as its not stressing any components but your RAM. 5 passes is generally what it takes to tell if a tick is ram is good, but the random test on memtest is random, so the more you do the better overall
Ok Truhls, I left it running overnight, 20 hours all up, and I dont get any errors. So Ive bumped the CPU multiplyer back up and im still getting the resets. So now im at a loss. What would be your next step.?Testing the CPU with OCCT?
