View Full Version : Two BSODs since going to 32GB of RAM - Do I need to adjust voltage?
12-25-2011, 04:10 AM
So far I am running stock 3930K and X.M.P. profile in my 1005 BIOS on my Rampage IV Extreme.
I upgraded to 32GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 and I have had two BSODs. I have run memory checks, etc. and it all clears fine. I occasionally get these BSODs after an hour or so of gaming. My case is a LVL 10 GT Thermaltake and temps are all very very good.
Do I need to tweak a voltage setting somewhere to help this?

Are you overclocking the CPU?
If not, 1.1v of VCCSA and VTT should handle it, but it can help to give these a bump up when running higher density of ram.
Also try Rampage Tweak Mode 1 (compatibility mode).

Thanks mdzcpa, I'm not overclocking yet. Just running full stock and I selected XMP in the BIOS. I was also running SuperCache5 and a 10GB RamCache, which may have caused the issue. I"ll try upping the voltages you stated and I disabled the RamCache for now.

Which Windows are u running

Win 7 x64 Ultimate. I turned off SuperCache5 and so far it ran all day on/off heaving gaming just fine. Didn't touch voltages or timings, just turned off the RamCache. I guess that was the cause of it.

Did you clear your CMOS when you added your RAM? You should. The RIVE has a memory training built into the BIOS, as you POST it tweaks settings for your config - each time you POST for the first several posts. It had already tweaked your settings before you changed the RAM config, meaning now it needs to start that tweaking over again fresh. Also, you likely need a bit more VTT now.

As raja has recommended loosen your third timings (budget rams 2kits combined into one rig sometimes need to loosen up) or start from load raw mhz profile
