  • Need some help on test readings please.


    wish you all a good day and would like to thank you in advance for any sort of help you will contribute to this thread, my problem started with my pc restarts automatically when i start MSI afterburner test, which later on led me to do some testing on rams to figure out my problem and im kinda shocked with the results even tho i dont know what the readings means but i recently bought the rams off amazon, and i really wish i dont need to replace them since i bought them from amazon USA and i dont live there so returning it for a refund is going to be a very difficult job for me, hope these reading are not effecting performance or can be fix. sorry for the long intro and will leave you with the details.

    PC specs:
    Ryzen 5 3600
    MSI x470 gaming pro
    Corsair RGB Pro 3200Hz 16gb (2x c16
    MSI RTX 2070 super gaming x trio

    here is the results:

    MSI afterburner has it's own set of bugs, but it does look like the RAM is bad.

      thanks for the fast reply and help,

      just trying hard to avoid returning the rams as i mentioned above it's gonna be a damn hard task to do, i just ran windows memory diagnostic tool, and it came out without errors and passed the test, does this actually change anything with the results or is there a way to fix the rams?

        and one more thing, i have made the test using both A-XMP profiles 1&2 and even disabled the profiles, maybe if i adjust the timings my self i can fix this? or you dont recommend such a thing, or my first results are final and there is nothing i can do to fix it?

          Yes, sometimes you can get the RAM stable by running the RAM at a lower speed (turning off XMP, or manually underclocking it), or by slightly increasing the voltage levels.
          This is hiding the problem, not fixing it. But maybe it is enough?
          But often the RAM is bad in such a way that no amount of tweaking will fix it.

          Try testing 1 stick at a time.
