Faulty Module in Twin2x1024-5400C4

I bought a set of corsair memory (Twin2x1024-5400C4) through Tigerdirect.com on 12/08/05. After setting up my system I loaded the two modules into the slots and turned on the power. The system powered up but the screen recieved no video signal, which by the manual indicated bad memory. I mixed around different possitions and found that it would only boot into Bios with only one stick in the motherboard. I tried the other one singly, and it would not boot.

 

Since this is the only ram my system is currently running on, I would prefer to return only one of the two sticks if possible. I have the original package, and will use it for the return.

 

System info:

Intel D945Gtp

Intel Pentium D 820 2.8 GHz

Antec TruePower 2.0 430W

I have the system running on default settings. The processor is running at full speed (2.8GHz). The memory however was running at SPD settings of 5-5-5-15 with no problems except for the bad stick. I tried 4-4-4-12 with the same result (one works the other does not).

The system is not running on overclocked speeds or unecessary settings as far as I can tell. If it is, then the motherboard is not allowing me to set it.

My motherboard neither tells me the voltage the ram is at nor gives me the option to change it.

 

I'm still convinced that one of the sticks is bad because under all of the same conditions, one stick will allow the computer to boot, while the other will not. Is it possible to get an RMA number?

Let's get them both replaced. But if you cannot set the voltage I would suspect that these modules may not run in this MB. Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part! Or *New* Tech Support Express” and we will be happy to replace them or it!

My motherboard is an Intel D945Gtp which is listed in your database as being compatible with these memory mdoules. Also, I said before that one of the modules seems to be working fine, I'm typing to you on the computer running on it. I also ran memtest and it passed 8 passes. On the same note, I would like to return only the faulty one, seeing as I would be without a computer if I had to return both. If this is not possible then please let me know.

If you return only one module you will no longer have a matched set. I would encourage you to send both, and yes these modules are compatible with the chipset, however the Mb makers are all different as to the options they give and these modules have a minimum suggested voltage of 1.9 Volts which would need to be manually set. You might check with Intel and see if they have that setting.
