I think its the TwinX pack, i dont really know, i sadly through out the box and now i cant return it back to frys. But it came with two 1GB sticks of ram so yeah. I havent tested it with that program, i dont really want to put the ram back into my computer becuase every computer that ram went it it messed up that computer.

And you should be using http://www.memtest.org to test the system, and I would install the modules and load setup defaults and then set the memory voltage to 2.7 Volts. But when ever you change hardware you should load setup defaults and or reset the bios so the new hardware is detected properly.

After following Ram Guy's advice, loading optimized defaults in the bios (or resetting the bios) and then setting the memory voltage (also called ddr voltage or vdimm in a bios) to 2.7volts in the bios, running the program Memtest86 from http://www.memtest.org will perform a series of eight tests on the ram, known as one pass of Memtest86. Run three passes, about 15 to 20 minutes a pass. If Memtest doesn't find any errors, the problems not likely due to the ram. If it does find errors in any of it's tests, the ram is likely faulty, i.e. bad. Good luck.
