Heat Spreader Spreads Trouble for my XMS?


Recommended Posts

I've been using TwinX2048-3200 on a Asus A7N8X Deluxe for quite a while now. One day my Windows started acting buggy - applications closing, errors, etc. So I ran memtest86 and notice a bunch of errors. I ran memtest86 on the modules separately and one is bad and shows error after error always in the same row. In the process, I notice that one stick of my TwinX2048-3200 had the heat spreader coming off. It looks like the goo from the double sided tape partly melted mostly around two of the chips in particular. Has any failures ever been reported because of the two-sided tape on those heat spreaders? I'm having to run in single mode now, what do I do?
