Bad stick of VS512MB400


Recommended Posts

I've got one bad stick of VS512MB400 from a pair that I recently purchased. The one stick causes occasional crashes under windows and fails memtest 86 at the same bit location. I've swapped it back and forth with the good stick to verify the failure. The failure follows this one bad stick, independent of the memory slot on the M/B.


It's running at 200MHz on a Nforce 4 chipset Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 M/B.

Please try and set the Dim Over Voltage Control to +.2 Volts and then test the suspect module again with http://www.memtest.org. If you still get errors with that module, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!


I tried the module at + 0.2 Volts, but it still fails. I've requested an RMA # online.

Thanks for the help.
