    Not sure what's going on. I've had a total of 6GB of RAM just up and die on me ( 3x2GB sticks ) for no foreseeable reason. After that many, I'm starting to think that the motherboard is at fault.

    Anyone have any ideas before I'm left with less than 4GB of ram left?

    Maybe default voltage is set to high on ram

    It shows it as about 1.45v which is lower than what the RAM should be running at: 1.5v. I wonder if it's being reported wrong.

    What memory are you using? Are you sure the memory is bad? Did you test each stick individually with memtest?

    Latest bios, yes. The voltage readings I said were from the bios. CPU-Z confirms this.

    The first stick was from Patriot. The two that died now are from Team Elite. I tested each stick separately.

    maybe the if you have updated the bios, it might have messed the default setting up.
