Weird RAM bluescreens

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys, I just recently built a computer with the following specs:

 

-Asrock x470 master sli

-Ryzen 2600

-16Gb (2x8) G.SKILL Ripjaws V 3000mhz

-750W evga bq psu

 

When I booted everything up I went straight for the bios where I could see every component was detected and saw nothing odd. As soon as I tried to install windows I would just freeze and forced to shut down. I narrowed it down to ram so I switched it to another kit of 8Gb (2x4) of G.skill aegis and everything worked fine and I was able to install windows. I installed the ripjaws kit again and got BSOD everytime I turned on the pc. I RMA the ripjaws V kit and got a new one from the store and the exact same thing happened. Tried everything on the internet and one thing worked: Installing only one of the sticks, activate xmp, shut down the computer after and finally installing the second stock. The post where I saw this solution did not explain why this worked and I'm afraid it might still be a hardware problem. I have the bios fully updated too. Can anyone explain why this works? Thank you.

Use CPU-Z to check memory frequency, what does that read?


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

Memory frequency on cpu-z reads 1500 (the 3000mhz from the xmp profile) so everything is looking good. I even stress tested the memory and found no errors in one hour of testing with memtest64. If I set the bios to default and install both sticks of ram I get bluescreens with or witouth XMP enabled. I have to install the first stick, enable xmp, shut down, install the second stick and the it works flawlessly

buggy BIOS probably, Asrock after all.
