TWIN2X2048-6400C4D 1 Bad?


Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure I have 1 bad module.


P5w DH Deluxe TWIN2X2048-6400C4D


1. Installed both modules and system just hangs at asus logo screen


2. Installed just one module and booted fine.


3. So I tried the assumed bad module and just hangs at asus logo screen.


What do I do next?

I purchased this just last week from Newegg.

If this is a bad module, what is the turn around time on RMA?

I use this computer for work (SolidWorks CAD)

The first time booting with both sticks installed was stock. For the reason I could not get to the bios to try any other settings, would just hang.


Then when I installed only one of the mem sticks it booted fine and I got to the bios. I set the mem voltage to 2.1 and 800mhz, saved and shutdown to install the 2nd stick. Tried to boot with both sticks installed and it would just hang, could not get to the bios. Swithed back to the one stick that worked and booted fine. Tried the 2nd stick alone and would just hang.

Ramguy, Thanks for the fast reply


I will RMA these within a week after I get another set in. Just need A few questions answered before I order the other set.


Can I run 2 sets of TWIN2X2048-6400C4D without any problems?

Are these setting right and would they be the same for 2 sets installed?


I am currently running just one stick with these settings with a x6800

(hangs randomly, maybe I have 2 bad sticks not just 1)
