Windows 7: 2 sets of identical RAM seem to not work together?

27 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home 64BIT

Hi there Golden

I use Avast! Free antivirus

I don't overclock anything in my system and I also have not had any disk errors

I ran some testing last night using Memtest86+ and these were the results I got

All 4 DIMMs installed - 88 errors test 5

2 new DIMMs installed in slot 2 and 4 - 0 errors

I'm going to be testing those 2 DIMMs in slot 1 and 3 tonight too see what happens.

I've just had a look in the BIOS at the timings and it's running the memory at 11-11-11-28, However the memory's rated at 9-9-9-24, Would having the CAS latencys higher cause instability? Should I manually set the memory to 9-9-9-24?
