Has anyone built a unit with an Asus m4a785td-v-evo motherboard and Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2x2G DDR3 1333 10666 with no problems? I have that and an Athlon 440 CPU with no unlocked core and no overclock, Samsung Spinout F3. I had problems from the beginning with a few web page freezes here and there. A few times watching a dvd or just opening a program the computer crashed. It always comes up with a different messages from the bios either saying a hardware problem has been detected or something to the effect Windows did not load to protect your computer from damage. Please check any recent hardware, memory added. I have run prime95 and memtest a bunch of times and get no errors. It seemes that after it crashes a few times it gets worse and worse it appears the hard drive gets corrupted. I reloaded windows again but I am still getting some web page freezes. I am sure the crashing will start again. I have monitored voltages and temps of the board and cpu and do not see anything out of spec. I am lost as to how to fix this so I may try to RMA everything with Newegg just in case one of these components is bad. I thought maybe there could be a compatibility issues with the memory and motherboard or somehing that I cannot detect. If anyone has any suggestions as to what could cause these issues it would be greatly appreciated.
The RAM is probably rated for 1.65V. Your motherboard is only going to give 1.5V as a default. Have you gone into bios and manually set the RAM voltage and timings to match what mushkin says they should be?
I did change the timings at one point from auto of 9-9-9-24 to the manufacturer spec of 7-7-7-20. I never changed the voltage partially because I wanted to be sure that I knew the correct place to change it and because if I was in the right parameter it was auto set to 1.56v. The memory spec was 1.5 to 1.65 so I thought that was o.k. but maybe not. I will manually add the timings again and change it to 1.65v and see if that helps. Just to be sure in the bios I would make the change under memory over voltage. Is that correct?
Unfortunately changing the memory timings and voltage did not work. It crashed twice. Does anyone have anymore suggestions? The only thing I could think of to do was to try and RMA everything on the off chance one of these components is defective.
