BSOD dxgmms1 When using 8 GB ram Solid when running 4

Hi All,

I just built a brand new computer when a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Ultimate 64 bit. This computer has never had any other OS on it.

I am having an issue when playing Dragon Age Origins that the computer with BSOD when I have 8 gb of ram in the computer. With only 4 gb in, the computer is rock solid.

I have tested all the ram in Memtest86 overnight with no issues. I have tried different sets of the 4 gb and they all work fine. The problem is when I try to use 8 gb.

My computer has the following:

AMD Phenom II X4 965
8 GB OCZ DDR3-1600 Black Edition
Gigabyte motherboard
XFX Radeon 5870
1000W Corsair PSU

I think the are the most important components. I have installed all Windows Updates, have the latest mobo bios, and the latest video drivers.

Here is the event log from a crash:

To get 8GB stable it sometimes helps to raise the memory voltage a bit or decrease the memory latency's a notch. Be sure and use the 2T command rate also. It may also help to increase the northbridge voltage a bit.

Set timings to 8 8 8 24 2T manually. According to what I have read about your particular memory, it may take 1.71-1.77 volts to get them stable at 1600MHz.

Thanks for your reply. I waited to respond until after I had tested things a bit. I had already had the timings manually set to 8-8-8-24 1T at 1.65v. I can only increase voltage by incraments of .5- not .1. I tried the following settings:

2T at 1.7 v - seems to be the most stable. Games run with no crashes. However, I still get BSOD occasionally... I get them in a much less requency. One maybe every 6 hours or less. Majority of them look like this:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000007f (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050031, 0x00000000000006f8, 0xfffff80002cb912b). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 111809-34070-01.>

2T at 1.75 or 1.8v an I get TONS of crashes and errors. Random exceptions, irql_not_less_than_equal, usbhub.sys errors, ect.

So, at this point I dont know what to do. Is 4 gigs of ram good enough anyways? Maybe I should just send 4 gb back and be happy with my stable 4....

There is still more you can do to help get the 8GB stable. Chip set voltages will sometimes need to be bumped up a bit to get the 8GB stable. If you aren't sure which voltages to adjust try the Gygabyte forum. The divider you use can also have an impact on stablity.

Set tRFC to {88}
Set Command Rate to {2T}
Set MCH Core to {1.35 volts}
Set C.I.A.2 to {Disabled}
Set Performance Enhance to {Standard}
