DX58OG freezes when loaded with 24GB

 

I have been the happy owner of a DX58OG motherboard that has been running with 16GB CORSAIR Dominator CMX8GX3M2A1333C9memoy (4 x 4GB in dual channel mode) for over a year. It has the latest BIOS from Intel website and has a i7 950 (DO stepping) CPU running at stock speed. I have been running at stock voltages and 1066 stock speed fully stable.

Recently I needed to upgrade to 24GB so I ordered high quality memory from CORSAIR Vengeance CMZ24GX3M6A1600C9 which are siz sticks of 4GB memory that are matched. I can run 4 sticks of just fine but when I install all six it will pass memtest86 but when I run prime95 set to use 18GB of memory after 10 mintes it would freeze. My max system temps durring the full load tests are CPU 65C, IOH 52C and VREG 48C.

I worked with CORSAIR to set VRAM and DRAM/QPI to various settings but no matter what voltage and combination I would get freezes within a few minutes under heavy load. I also tried increasing CPU core voltage and that did nothing to help. I then purchased 6 pieces of Samsung M378B5273DH0-CH9 memory that is appoved by Intel on this board and it still freezes ( I sent this memory back).

I have searched this intel forum and have found at least six other posts with similar problems using 24GB memory with this motherboard. Only one person had a resolution and that was to have his mother board RMA'ed. I am thinking that either the DG58OG is faulty and needs replacing or the motherboard is not truely a stable 24GB motherboard even though it is stated to support 24GB. Does intel maybe have an other BIOS that would solve this problem?

Please help.

Well no one responded to my problem today....well that's OK .

I went to my System Builder today and told them the whole story. Since the system is under warranty, they recommended I bring it to their store. They will run a full diagnostic and if they also can not get it working with 24GB they will replace the motherboard. I hope they can get it to work.

Hello Leslie, The motherboard is indeed capable of running 24GB of RAM memory and also the processor that has the memory controller built in. If you are having problems when using more than 16GB of memory, the problem could be the motherboard or the processor so having them tested by the computer shop will be a good idea as they can test another processor in your system.

Now I do recommend you to check your memory as the processor is rated to support memory up to 1066MHz and the memory that you purchased does not seem to support that frequency. As you tested the other Samsung* memory, the issue that you are currently having may not be related but using the memory out of specifications can bring on other problems in the future.

Regards.
