Bad part or Compatibility?


Recommended Posts

Asus A8N5X with Corsair Value Select DDR-DIMM 184-pin 2 GB module kitVS2GBKIT400C3 causes system to repeatedly "dump" with various errors.


Computer shop says it is the "the memory" but did not have an opinion on whether it was a "bad part" or compatibility issue. They put in different memory and the system worked fine.


My issue is whether to have the vendor replace the Corsair memory or to buy the memory from the computer shop that was working.


I am concerned that the Corsair product was not "duel channel" and is not compatible.

Please load setup/optimized defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then leave the timings set to "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s one at a time with www.memtest.org! If you still get errors, please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it! However, if you get errors with both modules that would suggest some other problem and I would test them in another system or MB to be sure.
