iconbob Posted January 1, 2005 Share Posted January 1, 2005 Good Day! Last year, when I built my new PC, I purchased two sets of your Corsair TwinX1024-3200C2PRO Modules (2 GB Total). When they arrived, I affixed a small, numbered sticker to the pairs (1 and 2) so that the matched pairs could always be kept together. Anyway, for about a year now, I have been plagued with crazy problems. For example, my PC spontaneously reboots from time to time, especially when playing games. Sometimes it happens on start-up, sometimes when starting an application, sometimes when loading a new level, etc. I've searched tech forums, updated drives, and tried just about everything under the sun to fix this problem (to no avail). Anyway, over the past year, I have tried different motherboards, CPUs, video cards, power supplies, drivers, patches, settings, etc. Only different memory seems to fix the problem. If I try the memory in another PC, the reboot problem carries over to the other PC as well. And the memory fails with MEMTEST. Anyway, after much frustration, annoyance, and troubleshooting-extreme, I have concluded the following: my #2 set of memory has something wrong with it. When I run Set #1 alone, there are no problems or crashes (and the performance is excellent). With Set #2 by itself, the crash frequency increases over running both sets together. Thus, my conclusion is that the #2 set of memory is bad. Here are my current system specs: OS: WinXP w/ SP2 MB: Intel D875PBZLK FMB 1.5 (875P Chipset) CPU: Intel Pentium 4, 3.2 GHz HT / 512 Cache / 800 FSB / 1.55V Video: ATI Radeon 9800 XT Pro (256 MB AGP) Memory: TwinX1024-3200C2PRO (2 GB total - 4 modules) SATA HDD: 2x WD360 Raptor, SATA, 73.4 GB Total (RAID 0) IDE HDD: WD1200 Caviar, EIDE, 120 GB Sound: SB Audigy 2 ZS (SB0350) CDROM1: Plextor CD/DVDRW 16(4)/10(2.4)/40(12)X, PX-504A CDROM2: Sony DVD/CD-ROM Player 16X/40X, DDU1612 Network: Integrated Intel ProSet LAN Overclocking: NONE (It really isn't worth the risk!). Here is the actual part number of the items I believe are bad: 2x CMX512-3200C2PRO OK, so there you have it, what's next? Can I get an RMA for a replacement set based on this information? Thank you in advance for your assistance with this matter. Regards, Bob Osika Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
