    Kingston HyperX - Memtest86 FAILED??

    Hey everyone I have a question before I return some memory I bough from Bestbuy.com.

    I purchased two sticks of Kingston HyperX KHX4000/512R I noticed some stability issues with my system so I decided to test my memory with memtest86. After a few hours of testing I returned to my computer to notice some errors here are the results.

    5 5 0000ff677e0 - 255.4MB 00400000 0004000 00400000

    What's goin on here? Should I return it? I am overclocking a bit. I am running my system at 200FSBx8.5, however this memory is design to run at 200FSB+. The overclock is for my processor with is an Athlon XP 1700.

    Thanks,

    Just

    play with your voltages a bit, up them seperately and see if it does anything, my guess is upping the vcore will fix your problem.

    Try memory timing to manual, try 11-3-3 at cas 2.5 with 2.9 volts on the memory, chipset Vdd voltage to 1.7 volts, Vcore of the cpu to 1.75 volts, save and exit bios, let it flash and boot to the OS, good luck.

    Thanks I tried this and I got no erros after 5.5 hours. One more questiosn why suck high timings? Especially with the 11?

    10 or 11 on nforce2 boards = more bandwidth on the majority of boards, it's not a suck timing
