2 Corsair Value Select 512MB PC3200 sticks possibly bad


Recommended Posts



I have 2 of hte 512MB sticks listed in the title, I bought them from newegg

back in 09/03. They worked perfectly up until last month when I started locking up randomly in all sorts of games, occasionally on other apps.


I bought some Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200C2PT - OEM to replace the memory and it 'solved' the problem. I've tried the old memory in other PCs, and the crashes follow the RAM to each of my 3 PCs.


I'm now runnining Memtest86 on the modules. I initially ran it on all 1GB of RAM, and received 800,000+ errors and counting before I stopped it. I will now be trying each RAM stick individually, but I suspect that both will fail in MEMTEST within the hour.

Can you tell me the make and model of MB you have along with the CPU speed and it’s FSB as well? In addition, please tell me the bios settings you have set for both CPU and memory and any performance settings that you may have set?
