Bad stick


Recommended Posts

I built my new gaming system in February this year, and I used 4 sticks of CMX512-3200C2. The reseller was kind enough to order them in so they were as closely matched as possible.

 

Yesterday I turned my computer off for the night, and this morning when I tried to turn it on, it gave me a single beep POST error, which is memory fail. I opened up the case, and tested all (not acutally all, but you know what I mean) the possible RAM/slot combinations. There is one stick that will cause the POST error regardless of slot #, or # of other sticks used. Memtest reports that the other 3 are functioning with no errors.

Just like to update the post, I RMA'd all 4 sticks, and less than a week later recieved 4 brand new sticks, all from the same batch. They are now installed and working perfectly. The 512MB I had installed as a temporary was just killing me.

 

I'm never buying anything other than Corsair for my RAM ever again. :D: :D: :D: :D:
