Hi guys,
anyone knows what to do if the above individual Patriot modules don't generate any errors in any of the slots, but as a kit memtest86+ v1.65 goes all red - hundreds of errors in Test 5 & 6.
The errors do go away, but only if i go to 667MHz from 800MHz which I find unacceptable.
Memory voltage is at 2.0V and timings at 5-5-5-12 which is all from EPP.
I am not OCing, just wanna stable machine. Anyway, if there is no solution, tomorrow I am taking the memory back.

My system:
Q6600 (b3), stock HSF
GA-P35C-DS3R (rev 1.1) F2 BIOS
Patriot PDC24G6400ELK
WD5000YS x3 (SATA)
Pioneer 212 (optical SATA)
Silverstone Decathlon DA750
CoolerMaster Praetorian 732
I also have some other PCI cards, but i removed them during the testing process...
Thanks.
Szilard

Another thing I tried and is error free after 1 hour of memtest, is to go to 6-6-6-18, but I'm still convinced my kit is badly paired or i am just lame... :)
 
I see you have the latest Bios (Note didn't see rev 1.1, only rev 1.0)
There is a f4 BETA for rev 1, but that relates to PS2 port.

I would tend to agree - mismatched pair, or one not up to specs.

You might try raising Dimm E up one more notch, The "reported" voltage may be reading a tad low.

When I added a 2nd pair of PC6400 to my setup, I also found that I had to raise my FSB voltage one notch to get rid of mem erros.

Thank you RetiredChief, I'll try your suggestions (& check another bios).
ps: Rev. 1.1 is printed on the corner of the board, but I have no clue what are the diffs between 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0.
Cheers,
Szilard

Solved: It was the unmatched kit. Another (asus?) board wouldn't even post w/ both modules in them, but the new replacement kit runs as rated w/o any problems. My mobo is good plus the Patriot RAM is good too - after all. Cheers!
