Module of TWINx512-2700LLPT fails Memtest


Recommended Posts

I have one stick of TWINX512-2700LLPT in my system and I am thinking it's bad.


Memtest returns 25 errors on the module (so far). I ran memtest because occasionaly I'll get write errors, or memory allocation errors. I've been suspcious of this module for a while now, but haven't done anything about it as I only have one, and can't be down.


My system is a AMD 2800+ fsb is 333 memory is 333 nothing is overclocked and all bios settings are set to default settings.


What else is needed?


Also if this is a bad part, and I need to RMA it, is it's twin still available? I would like to get another stick before I RMA this, and would like the replacement to be compatible with what I have and what I will end up with after the RMA.

Please test it with the settings I gave you previously and if you get errors I would suggest we get your module or modules replaced.

Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

Will do, be back in a couple of hours.


One question though, if I have my speeds detected automatically by SPD, my T(RCD) is detected at 2 not three. Is that a problem?


It was the only setting I had to change that was different from what you suggested (that and the updated memtest)
