Memtest + ???
I might have a bad stick GSkill 8000cl5d. An error in prime95 after 2hrs 41min and when I tried again it froze just under 2 hrs. All temps are good. Tried each sick separately alone in slot 1 and no errors in Memtest. Can I boot up with one stick in slot 3? wnat to make sure there's not a problem with that slot.
Easy enough to find out.... :)
My experience has been that most prime errors +20 minutes usually require a slight bump to Vcore, except when it freezes, and then it's usually a slight bump to northbridge voltages.
I forgot to mention that everything is stock.
HX520, E7200,G.Skill F2-8000CL5D-4GBPQ, Powercolour 4670 512MB
I'll try both sticks alone in slot 3 and then go from there.
Even if I'm not overclocking?
Did you raise your ram voltage up to 2.0 or 2.1 volts? I found my Gskills needed 2.0V+ to run properly.
Ok now I think there's no problem with the memory sticks or slot1 and slot3 on the board. I tested both sticks alone in each slot and then together and every test passed Memtest hickup free. So I decided to do another prime25 run and 4hrs into it one thread had an illegal sumout error while the other continued. So like suggested I wonder if bumping voltage would solve my problem. Here's what it looks like:
So I bumped the CPU up 0.050 and the memory 0.200.
Is that ok?
Well that didn't help. It "froze" just a few minutes in. I'm going to try and bump up the voltage on only the memory.
BTW, CPU is E7200
If it's freezing try bumping your NB / FSB voltage a notch or two. That said... if everything is at stock the only voltage bump you should have to do would be memory to bring it into manufacturer's specs.
Have the G.Skills at the recommended voltage and bumped NB/SB a notch and so far so good with Prime95.
you also haven't mentioned anything about the motherboard you are using. in order for educated suggestion on the setup, we need to know the setup.
