I have built my first build using the following spec:
Gigabyte SKT-AM3 78LMT-USB3 Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 965 - 3.4 Ghz AM3 Black Edition
Crucial Ballistix 8GB (4GB x2) DDR3 1600
500 WATT ATX PSU
SanDisk SDSSDX-120G-G25 120GB ssd
(HDD and GPU to be installed later)
I have installed the latest ubuntu on the ssd drive and ran memtest86+ , the test consistently failed on test7, I tried one dim at time and still got the same error.
I also tried running on different dual channels (slot 2 and slot 4) as opposed to slot 1 and slot 3 and again got the same error.
I am abit sceptical that both dims are faulty, I think that might be something else going on but not sure what/
Other than the test failure, the system boots well and fast runs smoothly, I have not done any other tests but I am keen to know if I have a faulty component so that I can return it on time for a replacement.
