harryallen Posted February 23, 2005 Share Posted February 23, 2005 OK i have a bit of a puzzle here. I purchased some of the above ram from a UK online distributor. Im currently running : MSI k8n neos platinum AMD64 3200 WD 74G raptor MAXTOR 120G 8M ide HD twinx1024-3200XLPT I have been through all of the other forums regarding running this at 2-2-2-5 dual @ 400 T1 timings, tried the 2.8V and so on. Now i looked on the packaging today at the lot# and information above the barcode on the back of the box. Printed on there is this: TWINX1024-3200C2 LOT#0446115-2 on the sticker on the actual ram it says: CMX512-3200XLPTv1.2 0448013-1 Im curios if this is actually a matched pair (im aware 512x2 = 1024) or if they have been tampered with and placed in the wrong box as the boxes are not sealed. Should these numbers relate to eachother? Anyway an answer to that would be nice but also after a week of BSOD random boots, windows errors and learning all about this i tried memtest98. I put 1 stick into slot 1 and ran memtest98, i got 8 errors or more on test 5. I'm aware of the AMD stage 5 error problems but let me continue... I swapped the stick for the other and tested it in the same slot to reveal no errors at all. So i tried them in dual mode in slots 1&2 and 3&4 to get 64 errors in total from dual mode. So im thinking 1 stick is definetly faulty here? Im based in the UK so an RMA to the USA is not really an option here i dont think (unless you do a european RMA?) and also the added confusion of the LOT# and packaging might add to confusion. Im bored to death of BSOD and random boots now, adding the hell i also have lots of work to do on my pc that requires RAM but im having to use just 512M. Hope somebody can help.
