Bad Ram


Recommended Posts

Part No.: CMX256A-3200C2

MB:Chaintech 7NJS Zenith

CPU: Athlon 2600+ (2.09GHz) 333Mhz FSB

The bios settings were left to default for the CPU and the only changes for the RAM was to run it at 166MHZ so it would be in sync with the cpu and System Performance set to Normal. All other performance settings were left to default.


I have 2 sticks of this RAM i run them dual on my MB.

i tested both sticks, upon doing this i found that 1 stick passed all tests and the other failed miserably, i got 2.5 million errors before i stopped the tests..

what should i do now...do i need to send back both sticks seeing that i run them dual?
