Smanux is reading into overclocking
Default F2-6400CL5D-4GBNT on Asus P5Q-VM


I just bought a 2x2GB kit of GSkill DDR2 6400 (F2-6400CL5D-4GBNT, CL5-5-5-15 1.8v) and I'm struggling to make it work on an Asus P5Q-VM motherboard with an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (no overclocking) and no other memory module.

memtest86 didn't detect any error after 7 full passes, but Windows is frequently rebooting (BSOD) or freezing with a corrupted display. I tried upping the RAM voltage to 1.90v and 2.00v and it seemed more stable, but after a few hours it eventually crashes.

Is this a known incompatibility with this motherboard? Is there a way to configure the BIOS settings to make it work?

Thank you for your help.
