ASUS P5Q3, P5E3 with DDR3 RAM freezes

E-mail Print PDF

This may apply to other configurations too.

Motherboards with DDR3 are very delicated with memory types.

There are two solutions to unexplained freezes

First is to increase memory voltage or from 1.5V to ~1.6V

Second is to decrease BUS clock from 1333MHz to 1066MHz.

You will not notice any perfomance degradation because at 1333MHz the CL is 9 but

at 1066MHz the CL is 7.

Detailed configuration

Motherbord: ASUS P5Q3, ASUS P5E3

CPU: Intel Core 2 DUO E8400 3.0GHz

RAM: Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G (2GB DDR3/1333MHz)
