Corsair ValueSelect RAM failed

Recommended Posts

I have a stick of Corsair ValueSelect RAM that was causing bad BIOS checksums (the system refused to boot) when I inserted it in a brand new A8N-E board. Testing with Memtest86+ v1.65 shows that the module does not read back the test patterns correctly (random corrupted bits in lower 2 bytes). Can I RMA this RAM back to Corsair for replacement?

 

It is a DDR400 512MB RAM, double sided, part number

783 - 0539007 - 0 - 542869

Please set the Dim Voltage to 2.7X volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) and then set the timings manually to the tested settings for the specific module you have, XMS2700C2 Cass 2-3-3-6 for example or if you have Value Select "BY SPD" and then test the module/'s 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.
