Bad RAM stick


Recommended Posts

Back in October I bought 2 pairs of TWINX1024-3200c2 to use in my P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard, they worked fine until late May when I started having problems, random crashes, that type of thing. Tried other things to no avail, finally ran memtest, first on all sticks and got mega errors. Then on the matched pairs, first pair passed with no errors. The second pair had errors so I tried them one at a time and in different slots. One stick is fine, the other stick is a very efficient error generator ;)

 

Whaduya think?

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have (Cass 2-3-2-6 with the Rass to Cass set to "3"), and then test the module/modules one at a time with http://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. In addition, with this MB you have to disable legacy USB in the bios when running any memory test.
