RAM - Kingstone KVR400X64C3A 1gb x 2 - PC3200 CLS 184
MB - Gigabyte GA-8i848P775-G bios (F4)

SPD defaults detected by MB - 3-3-3-8 - RANDOM BSOD (XP-32 / Win7-32)
SPD manually entered - 3-4-4-9 - seams stable no BSOD for about 12 hours

3-4-4-9 is detected by inserting both memory sticks in another MB so i tried and it maybe the best

the problem is why GA-8i848P755-G detecting 3-3-3-8 and gives BSOD and when using 3-4-4-9 it seams working good till now as i see, what is wrong ?

Most motherboards don't detect the right memory timings and they have to be set manually. What are the stock timings? Just use the numbers that the memory is supposed to run at, make sure you don't skip the advanced options. Like on my board now there are settings to set say 8-8-8-24 or whatever but there is also whole bunch more and to run it stable, I had to play around with that entire page of numbers. Check voltages too.

Everest home/ultimate edition.

Check the SPD in the motherboard part of the program.

Tells you the memory timings at different speeds, for example:

@200mhz 3.0-3-3-8

@166mhz 2.5-3-3-7

|@133mhz 2.0-2-2-6

Those are my timings for my Kingston sticks.

@200mhz 3.0-3-3-8 is my SPD autodetect, but with this timing i got random BSOD about 5-10 per day, when i use 3-4-4-9 its seams work perfect for about 1 day without problem, so what is this mean ?

Surely the timings and speed is on the side of the modules...and you knew them before you bought them....

As stated use the memory at stock defualt speed to make sure they work before adding volts and overclocking etc.

From a review on newegg, one customer said the following for the exact RAM model you have.


Pros: High quality fair price for basic RAM.

Cons: No issues to report.

Other Thoughts: I used two one gig sticks of this RAM for a new dual core build in September. Once the new box was sorted and tested I did some tweaking. I went from T-2 timing to T-1. Stable with no problems and I picked up a bunch of memory bandwidth. This is CAS three 3-3-3-8 rated memory but a few weeks ago I went into BIOS and changed the CAS from 3 to 2.5. I now have scored 5500 Memory bandwidth with zero reliability or stability issues.


Seems like yours might be borked a bit.
