bad CMX256A-3200C2

Hi there - I have a problem:

 

I own two Corsair memory modules (256MB each) working in dual-channel-mode.

I've tested them both seperatly and the one module has a Failure at 243,8 MB

 

Corsair CMX256A-3200C2

XMS3202v1.2

0318028

 

I used MemTest86 v3.2 to test the module at both settings:

2-3-3-8 and 2.5-3-3-8

Higher latencies may reduce the occurrences of failures but mostly they stay.

 

What should I do now? :(:

Can you tell me what MB and CPU along with the FSB your CPU is set too? Also have to tried setting the DRAM voltage to at least 2.75?

dang!

It's me again.

I have had problems during POST as long as "AI Overclocking" was set tu "manual" settings. So I had to switch back to "auto" what means I've got no control concerning the DRAM voltage settings any more. But it was necessary in order to boot any operating system.

 

MemTest-86 claimed there was only one error in a hundred tests (I had a 1 of five ratio before)

So my question today is:

 

Is it possible and normal to improve the reliability of memory modules by using a higher voltage for a period of five hours? (like swinging a rusty door)

:laughing:
