Just finished building my first PC. Done prime 95 test for 5 hours never went over 45°C. Done memtest86 and got errors after 10 minutes . I am using 4 dimms of [ RipjawsX ] F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL. Is this compatible with my asus P8Z77 - V motherboard? I set all the timings and voltages to what is says on the packet and is currently on 2133mhz. Could it be my crappy $37 psu its the shaw 1000W.
make sure your bios is up to date asus has some new cpu and ram code for the z77 mb. start out with two dimms in the a slots. (a1 and a0). run memtest on them. if they pass turn the computer off and switch them to the b slots. (make sure the slots on the mb are fine and the ram is working). if you get errors with two dimms swap them and see if the errors stop. with 4 dimms you could have one bad stick or you need to bumo the dimm voltage up a bit. one thing to try also is let the mb set the speed of the dimms under the ai dram xmp profile. alos make sure your fsb stays at 1:1 not 1:5
