Hardware failure detected!


Recommended Posts

Hi, i just built new PC and the first thing i decided to do after instaling windows, drivers etc... was to run Aida64 test. Surprisingly the test stopped after just 10-12 seconds, with red message above "Warning: Hardware failure detected! Test stopped". I ran more tests and i found out, that if I uncheck "Stress system memory" the test runs OK. So my question is, is something wrong with my RAM or what is causing it? 

Components: GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX GAMING GeForce GTX 1080 DirectCU III O8GB-11GBPS

                         CPU: AMD RYZEN 7 1700

                         Motherboard: ASUS PRIME X370-A

                         RAM: CORSAIR 16GB KIT DDR4 3000Mhz CL15 Vengeance LPX

The hardware failure in this particular case is most likely caused by an excessive RAM setting that makes the RAM modules generate CRC errors occasionally.  If it were a lot worse, Windows would fail to boot up.  Try to lower the RAM frequency a notch, like from DDR4-3000 to DDR4-2800, it should help.
