i would like to be sure that i have a bad part


Recommended Posts



My system is a about 1 1/2 Months old. It ran perfect. Since some days there were more and more errors and the system crashed and even refused to boot.


ASUS P5B Deluxe WiFi /Ap Bios : 0614

Core 2 Duo 2,66Ghz

XFX GeForce 7950 XT

Corsair 2x1024Mb Kit CM2X1024-6400 C4


I never overclocked anything. Bios setting for DRAM Timings uses SPD values, i have not touched these.


I've run memtest and got thousands of errors. I tested it with only one module

at a time and one module runs just fine (right now) and the other one gives me the thousands and thousands of errors i mentioned.


Well, its quite obvious that this part is broken, but since it worked for 6 weeks i wonder if it might be damaged by the bord or whatever somehow.


Or am i just the lucky guy who got the one bad part out of 10000?

Well, i just want to know if i only have to send the Kit back to my reseller/retailer, get another one and everythings fine.

No I am sorry if you have not set the tested settings manually it may not be failing just not set properly.

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, 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.
