[RMA request] Bad part? TWINX1024-4400C25PT


Recommended Posts



I believe I have a bad part, actually it may be bad since I bought it but I guess I never really checked. Here's the problem:


I use a pair of TWINX1024-4400C25PT on my Shuttle SN25P (Athlon64 3500+ CPU / XFX 6600GT, the rest is already integrated in the XPC) and I always had/have random reboot issues, but you know, since this rig is running windows, I never really cared (my other rig runs a linux distro called ubuntu, works flawlessly by the way, no more than 2~3 reboots in a year!). Anyways, reboots (especially while playing online games) started to piss me off big time, especially because I wasn't overclocking much and I ran @ 220MHz FSB @ 2.5-4-4-8 (even if the memory can handle up to 275MHz @ 2.5-4-4-8). I fired memtest86+, and magic, I realized one stick was having problems, especially with test #5 (don't ask me why it's this specific test...), even @ 200MHz FSB! Anyways, I then tested one stick at a time just to make sure I wasn't going nuts, one works flawlessly, but the other one always returns the same error, in particular with test #5 in memtest86+. I also used the CPU from my other rig to make sure it doesn't come from that...


I can only conclude that something is wrong with one of these 2 sticks. What are the next steps? I contacted the seller (bought online) but they told me to contact the manufacturer, i.e. you guys.


Thanks for the support guys,

Thanks for the feedback.


You're actually asking me to use more agressive settings than the ones I use! Anyways, my memory was @ 2.75V when I tested it (previous message, picture above). I just tried @ 2.8V, @ 2.5-4-4-8 and also @ 2-3-2-6 as suggested, same problem (actually it's even less stable than @ 2.5-4-4-8, 2.5-4-4-8 being the official recommendation).


Again, one stick works flawlessly, not the other...
