But then again, I'd test as per the tutorial instructions of memtest anyway and, when I find fault, try each stick separately in each slot.... why? because you never know if it is the stick or the slot.
If you have >2 sticks Like I think you might have, I'd put the voltage at 1.7 first and test with all in first, again.
I've just updated my specs, I have changed things a little as I'm trying to find a point where I'm happy with speed, quietness and cooling, I think I'm nearly there apart from my Blue screens.
I have over the last three nights been testing my ram, I have found I have either a bad stick in slot 5 or a bad slot. The past two nights testing slot one and slot three with sticks one and two have had no errors, but last night showed slot 5 and stick three had errors. Tonight I'll have to try a known good stick of ram from slot 3 in slot 5 to see if it is the slot causing errors but I don't know what to do with the empty slot 3. Can I run the machine with slot 3 empty?
I think before upping the ram volts to 1.7 I'll run the test to see if it's a slot or stick error, but it's good to know that you think upping the volts is ok.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my post and making some suggestions
