If CPU NB VID control only shows 'Auto' then select it and increase the voltage by the smallest amount available, this should give you a voltage number to post.
please see screenshots - Can you tell me exactly which steps I shall do in the BIOS? Thanks Dave!!

Yep - I select "Round off checking"

That's the result.. is it the correct test to run?

I see in post #33 that your CPU Voltage control is 1.3500v this is OK, no need to change.

For the CPU NB VID control, integrated memory controller, we need to know the auto/stock setting, should be 1.10v.
Select the +0.025v, the smallest increase, this should show a voltage number of 1.125v.

Post the new CPU NB VID voltage.


Yes, the Prime95 torture test - Blend is the right test in order to test the CPU and some of the RAM.

Hi Dave,

see the screenshot attached, please. Should this be correct now? What is the next step?

Thanks!!

This just confirms that the stock CPU NB VID control is 1.10v.

Now you need to make it as close to 1.20v as possible.
Select the +0.100v increase.

Then run the memtest86+ test overnight or the Prime95 Torture test-Blend test for an hour.
If you run the Prime95 test be sure to watch the CPU temps.

So CPU NB VID control was setup to 1.125 and I ran memtest.. it detected indeed errors. Shall I make CPU NB VID close to 1.20 v and let the memtest run again or...?

Any memory test errors are too many, the voltage adjustment will help.

Yes, set the 'CPU NB VID' 1.200v and run memtest86+ again.
Run it for at least 7 passes or overnight.

There is still the issue of running three RAM cards.
Two will be in dual channel mode and the other one will be in single channel mode or it will have all three RAM cards running in single channel mode, this will depend on the motherboard and BIOS.
You will have better RAM performance in dual channel mode.

Can you post the Geil part number for the RAM you have?
If it is 'Intel' RAM, you might still have issues getting it to run stable.

Hi Dave76,

'CPU NB VID' is set to 1.200 V. but I still have memory test error. See attached the 3 photos - also you will find the GEIL partnumber. What to do now? Thanks!
