Cmx1024-3200c

I have a CMX1024-3200C2 that was sold to me by Fry's electronics as part of a matched pair (receipt says DDR TWINX2048-3200C2).

 

About a week ago, my computer blue-screened, wouldn't boot. Looked like the boot sector was frizzled (which it was), so I went into triage mode, attempted to bring in a disk from another (working) computer and so on and so forth.

 

Long story short:

 

One of the CMX1024-3200C2 sticks returns thousands of errors in memtest86. The other one is fine. One I can do nothing with. The other one I am currently using to write this message. Is fine.

 

I don't overclock at all.

 

In one BIOS config (ASUS A8N32 SLI DLX mobo) the timings are set to "Auto", memtest86 fails as described. In the other tested config, timings are set to match the timing figures for this memory manually. Memtest86 fails as described.

 

Appears to be a catastrophic failure of the stick, yes?

Please make sure that you have the latest bios and then load setup defaults and set the Dim Voltage to 2.75 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.
