Windows 7: My Memtest86 (v4.20) results

Yea. Of all the systems I've built and used, I've only had one or two memory corruption problems which were unrelated to being qualified for use in the mobo, rather just poor quality pieces of memory. I'm not saying you should disregard the list or that there aren't actually incompatible pieces of memory (which there obviously are).

Nice. Again, I'll report back when I have my new RAM to see what happens. Have a nice day, and please, keep topic alive with more basic information around everything
This is obviously the core.

Received my new RAM today. Installed it and I'm back up and running.

MemTest has NO errors. Only ran it for a short time as with the old RAM errors showed up right away.

I'm running a Asus P7P55D-E Pro with a i5 760 2.8GHz CPU overclocked to 3.8GHz.

We'll see how long this lasts.

What RAM did you get and what OC settings are you running for both the FSB and RAM frequencies?

With these new boards and CPUs you set the BCLK. Mine is set to 200 with a multiplier of 19. Basically everything else is set to Auto.

When I first built this system I tried many variations of settings and could only get the system to 3.4+. I then tried the built in Asus BIOS Auto Tuning option and that set the system to 3.66. From there I manually changed some settings, voltages (actually lower the CPU voltage) and timings, and got it to run at 3.8. But from day one I would get memory errors when running my drive imaging program from a boot CD or CF card. That would happen even at the stock settings.
One of the first things I did once I had the system back up to 3.8 was to boot from a CF card with MustangPE, Win7 environment, with Acronis True Image and Disk Director and when I did the same operations, A backup and a restore using the Acronis Universal restore option, I didn't get any error or program shutdown. So I know I was good to go.
Hope fully it will stay this way.
I need to take some pictures of the BIOS screens and post them.

Oh the RAM was Kingston DDR3 1600. KHX1600C9D3K2/8G 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM
I also have so on order some Crucial and I'll see if I can get this system up to 16GB of RAM at the 3.8.

Nice to see it worked. Let's see if this is working for me as well. I don't know if these Kingston is running on another clock than my Corsair. Is it possible to set your clock to [AUTO], and how?

The reason for this is that certain RAM requires certain voltages that the board my not be "automatically" providing. Therefore this may require setting manually setting the RAM's specs.

Example my Corsair Dominator TR3X6G1600C8D 1600MHz RAM requires a voltage of 1.65volts. If I let my Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 motherboard set it "Automatically" it will set the RAM (to 1.5volts) below it's required voltage of 1.65volts.... and it will most likely fail memtest.

My two cents.
Sorry I didn't pay attention to your post. I've tried to remove the [AUTO], but something interesting strange came up. BIOS is supporting 0.02V between. And my Corsair requires 2.15, but it can't because of the 0.02V between each voltage.

- Again, reporting back when I've got my new RAM

=================================================

Shootist how's your computer working? I believe you have the same problem as me, and it seems your new RAM is cool

Just leave all of that on Auto. It will run at the correct voltage needed for its native timings.

Hello again FredeGail, hope you got your memory sorted out now. I didn't post back with settings because I know only enough to get myself in trouble.

I emailed GSkill with my errors and spec and they were nice to reply with the needed BIOS settings to make the memory work just fine.

Nice to see you again. So they just emailed you the BIOS settings which is needed? Sounds great!

Memtest86 Results Interpretation
I recently ran Memtest86 because I was trying to diagnose some freeze ups which had started randomly and with increasing frequency. I'm assuming this indicates the ram should be replaced, but I'd like another opinion. http://i1339.photobucket.com/albums/o712/trgraney/MemTest_zpsd668d2fa.jpg
