CMX512-3200C2PT module bad


Recommended Posts

I've had Corsair memory module CMX512-3200C2PT for about 18 months, worked great until about 4 days ago.

 

Windows started crashing randomly, and RAM would occasionally fail POST.

 

I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic utility, it displayed over 46 failures in the various tests.

 

Replaced the suspect CMX512-3200C2PT memory module with another identical Corsair module. Reran tests, no issues. POST is fine. Windows runs as expected.

 

I do I need to do anything else before requesting an RMA?

Thanks Wired,

 

Ran through the steps, and have received an email regarding my RMA request.

 

 

BTW, in case Corsair is interested, ran Memtest86+ v1.65 on my two CMX512-3200C2PT modules (the good one and suspect bad one), results are:

Good module: passes all tests

Suspect bad module: frequently fails POST at 128 MB with message "RAM R/W test failed", so the system thinks I only have 128MB of RAM available. When running Memtest, received over 2000 errors within 8% of the test.
