Swapping sockets fixes problem?

I don't know if I should feel good about this or not!

 

I just built a new PC. It's got a Gigabyte GA-K8N Ultra-9 motherboard, with two 512MB Corsair modules in it.

 

I ran the Suse 9.2 memory test for several hours, and generated six errors in the higher-address module.

 

The errors were consistent: 1 address had four errors, and 1 other address had two. The two addresses had different error types, but each address always reported the same error type, and the same error bits.

 

I wanted to further isolate the error, so I swapped the two memory modules.

 

Now I don't get any errors. That's good, but I'd sure sleep better if I knew why. I can't imagine a physical condition (link in the socket, for example) affecting exactly two addresses, on a repeatable basis.

 

Thanks for any advice.

More than likely they were just not seated properly, but I would set the Dim Over Voltage Control to +.2 Volts and you should be good to go.

 

I just find it a little hard to believe that a bad seating would cause exactly two repeatable addresses with problems, on a 512 MB module. I probably won't pursue this further, but color me skeptical.
