alright got an issue with these sticks.

http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Blackline/996677.aspx

996677

even at jedec specs of 9-9-9 for 1333 the ram fails in linX

dropped ram to 1066 it still fails linX and other heavy loads fine for web browsing etc but as you can guess i didnt buy performance memory for web browsing.

Wouldnt have been so bad but with a boot mgr issue i had to fix due to gigabytes bios the ram acting up is causing me a headache on the day my water cooling kit should have gotten installed.

so maybe u can serve up some magic settings
Are you using the latest BIOS for the mobo?

Try these settings,

(Use the outer ram slots)
DRAM Configuration>
Set Memory Clock: Manual
Memory Clock: x6.66
DDR3 Timing Items: Manual
CAS# Latency: 7
RAS to CAS R/W Delay: 7
Row Precharge Time: 7
Minimum RAS Active Time: 20
1T/2T Command Rate: 1T

DDR3 Voltage Control: Normal to +0.05V
If experiencing instability increase CPU NB VID Control: +0.1V to +0.2V

998691 with GA-X58A-UD5 Rev 2.0

Hello,

I just replaced my ASRock X58 Extreme with a GA-X58A-UD5 rev 2.

So far, so good, except for the XMP profile for this RAM. I actually have two kits, but am only using one right now.

For starters I had to install Windows 7 with only two stick present.

When I enabled the XMP profile, the BIOS reset itself and provided an error message about system instability, etc.

So, should I be able to use this RAM with the XMP profile (that's why I bought it) with this board's FA BIOS (most current, non-beta)?

Thank you!

998805 Redline 6x2GB rated speed

Hi,

Anyone has a solution how to make 998805 Redline 6x2GB operate at rated speed (1600Mhz, CAS 6-8-6-24) free of errors, w/out OC-ing CPU?

my system is:
Gigabyte ga-x58a-ud7 (latest bios, just upgraded)
i7 930
998805 Redline 6x2GB

System is at stock/auto everything (no Turbo, whatsoever), XMP results in memory errors (both in memtest+ and under OS test programs).

Without XMP memory runs at 1066Mhz 8-8-8-20 without a single error at everything auto.

Manual setup to multi 21x, uncore 24 (3200) Vdimm 1,650, QPI VTT 1,325-1,350 and CAS 6-8-6-24 results in same memory errors than XMP.

I tried many settings, but only 1066Mhz 8-8-8-20 yields error free operation.

Any Idea? Thanks

If you test each stick by itself at 6-8-6-24 @ DDR3-1600 with MemTest is there any difference between the sticks?
For example does one stick get errors and the others do not?

Hi guys,

I'm looking to buy THIS budget system for general purpose use.
If I order a second Mushkin Silverline 2GB (2x1GB) DDR3 1333 Dual Channel Kit
giving me 4 x 1 Gb will I encounter any problems.
The general concensus of opinion (from what I read) is 2x2 is better than 4x1.
Any potential problems with that mobo/ram config?

Steve.

Oh and, yes I will be changing the PSU for something better before you all shout.

Hi Steve,


You should not have any problems with adding 2 more 1GB sticks to this system.

If you were going to overclock or get performance memory, then 2X2GB is better, but at CL9 1333 you should not have any issues with 4X1GB.

Hi,

I have an Asus Crosshair IV Formula and 4x2GB Mushkin Redline 996805.

I installed the memory and with the default values I had problems with 'data corrupted' when i tried to install Windows. (1.5Vs, auto for timmings)

So, looking at google i found the solution increasing the nsb at +0.1V and the manual settings for the timmings and voltage, and the system got stable.

But now i'm having problems again from time to time, with some programas like Firefox, some Games (Crysis, SW: Force Unleashed II) or when i download multiple rar files (error at uncompress by CRC errors).

I think that it can be a problem for a bad configuration of the memories, so... which would be a good configuration (voltages, timmings, nsb, etc...) for a stable system?

Thanks.

Sorry, i should have said before.

Firefox crashes all time, the games crashes and makes the PC to reboot, if i download some rar files (a big rar divided in volumes) when i try to unrar them i obtain CRC errors all time with some of them.

Updated: Now the pc crashes alone if i let it on. I have set the nb with +0.1v to test if it's stable.

I don't think the Ram I have is available anymore. If I wanted another 2GB or 4GB, which one is the most compatible and is there a good place to get a good price for it?

http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Blackline/991587B.aspx

or?
http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Blackline/996587B.aspx

I thought the one above is closest????

Here's what I have (2 sticks of 2GB):

Mushkin PC2-6400 2x2GB DDR2-800mhz Memory Kit Model 996587

Anyway, they're blue so I was curious which ones I'd have to get now if I wanted to increase my RAM from 4GB to anything higher.

Thank you, but I'd like faster than 1600.

TBH you won't see much of a difference between 1600 CL9 and 2000 CL8. Unless your memory speed is crucial, I'd recommend the 2nd link. Can you overclock memory with SB?

I hope so. The ASUS Maximus IV Extreme motherboard I'm awaiting is supposed to be the most overclockable board there is for LGA 1155's. I don't think that they would ignore OCing the memory. 2nd page of this review under "Specifications/Delivery."

He said if there were any in the works ie: any projects for 8GB sticks, he never asked if they were available now

and 4GB sticks are cheap nowadays, I mean relatively. I can easily get a 2x4GB kit for 80$ or a 3x4GB at 120$, and on special I already saw a 3x4GB at 99.99$! All of the prices I quoted are for mushkins too

No I am talking about 4 gigs on one stick, they are not cheap, for me to go full out for my mother board I would need 6 sticks with 4 gig of memory on each stick and need it to be triple channel

Was I not? 40$ a stck and 33$ a stick on special is DAMN CHEAP... 24GB of RAM for 240$ to max out my mobo as well, I could use only 4GB and have a 20GB RAMdisk lol
