Hi guys/girls

I seem to have a system hang quite often with my corsair xms3 2 x 2 4gb sticks

I have a MSI 880GM-E41 motherboard http://www.ebuyer.com/product/244433

all default settings in the bios overclocking section.

timings are 9-9-9-24 on both sticks

ive ran a memtest and im getting no errors what so ever


Any ideas on changing the timings etc

Its quite annoying when im doing very little and it hangs on me!

Any help would be grateful.

How about a BIOS flash?

Ive flashed to the latest 11.8 version.

Ive checked MSI online and it says its tested with these sticks at 1066 and it passes

But even at 1066 it seems to hang even when i open up my browser.

Surely that shouldnt be happening?

Here is my set-up:

AMD phenom II x4 3.2ghz,
650w Corsair PSU
ATI HD 5570
MSI 880GM-E41 mobo

The defaul auto clock is disabled

Has anyone else had this problem using the Corsair XMS3 memory sticks?

Are you overclocking?

Did you set the memory to the correct voltage (Not auto)

I don't know which memory kit you have, but a lot of XMS is 1.65v. Your motherboard specifies 1.5v ram.

Did you do a clean Windows install when you put in the motherboard?

Im not overclocking, i just basically want to use the ddr3 ram as it comes, not bothered what speed it runs at as long as it dont cause my system to hang.



My motherboard wont let me change the ram to 1.5v, that option wont let me change it.

Same with the CPU voltage, there is no option to change :(

There is the option to change voltages, you just have to know how to do it. Usually reading the manual will help you with this.

Again did you do a fresh windows install when you installed the motherboard? If not, that's your problem, conflicting chipset drivers.
