Polizei Posted October 30, 2006 Share Posted October 30, 2006 Part in question: TWIN2X2048-5400c4 Like some users here, I will admit, I overclocked my system and used some great Corsair RAM to do it with. I had my Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.4GHz for a while with my DDR2-675 @ 948MHz when I decided to go back to stock to see how far I could really push this RAM, as if I hadnt pushed it far enough. I ended up getting it to 1005MHz with my DFI Infinity 975X/G on probably way too many volts, but I did it. After a day or two, I started to get random program crashes (FireFox) and some programs wouldnt run because of random file corruptions (ROllerCoaster Tycoon and Combat Flight Simulator) so I cleared my CMOS and put everything back to stock to see if that would help. I hit the power button after clearing my CMOS and I got one long POST beep. I knew something was up, checked my manual, and it said that I had a DRAM error. I went about finding which stick was dead. I took the stick out of slot 3, still got the POST beep. I took the stick out of slot one and put the stick from slot 3 into slot 1, and it booted up. I put both sticks into slots 2 and 4, and it would boot, but only recognize 1GB. So I think I have a dead stick, but Im not sure if it is covered under warranty with such heavy overclocking and overvolting. :o: At what point is the warranty voided with these sticks of RAM?
