nagal Posted November 13, 2005 Share Posted November 13, 2005 Been using 2 CMX512-3200C2 for awhile now and they have been rock solid, successfully survived many upgrades (AMD or Intel). But, yes there is always a but... My latest upgrade consisted of moving to an Abit KN8 with AMD 64 x2 4200+. Things went okay during Windows install but after that it went all down hill with random crashes that made no sense, which to me means faulty memory. My method of testing was to use 3DMark03 as the crashes happened much faster in DirectX apps versus normal desktop stuff. I found by trying each stick of memory separately in either DIMM 1 or 3 (the only supported slots when using 1 stick on the motherboard) that it was one particular stick that would cause the system to crash. Since this is a new build I have not gotten to even think about overclocking, so everything (cpu + memory) is at the auto detected speeds. Memory is show as Cas 2.5 (which it should since its an AMD system). Is there anything else I need to try or can I RMA this? The memory is easily 1-2 years old. I believe I bought it from ZipZoomFly.com but can not find the order that shows I did. Thanks for any help, Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
