Memory Module Problems


Recommended Posts



I have a matched pair of Corsair TwinX 1024 4000PT modules. On January 9, 2007 I ran MemTest 86+ and received 28 errors on the first pass (100%/8 tests). I contacted Newegg who I purchased the modules from and requested an RMA. At first the indicated that the memory was out of their warranty period and that I would have to contact Corsair. Following discussions with the tech, he indicated that the memory was covered and I proceeded to ship it back to Newegg.


However, after they received the memory they changed their mind and have subsequently mailed the modules back to me and recommended I contact Corsair for warranty support.


The pertainent information is as follows:


Purchase Date: 8/25/2003

Model number: Twinx1024-4000PT

Lot # 0331118


I would like to get these modules replaced as soon as possible since I have been without them since my initial RMA with Newegg.


Thank you,



Read some other posts. Did Tech Support Express. Case Number 75953

I did not test them independently since they were a matched pair. However, I will attempt to test them in another rig that has a GIGABYTE GA-8IG1000MK Socket 478 Intel 865G Micro ATX Intel Motherboard. Do you know if this board should support the sticks? I remember in 2003 doing some checking on compatability and I am pretty sure that at the time these modules were approved.


Thanks, will post again after next tests.

Yes they will work in that MB but you may be limited to DDR400 as I do not know if that MB will over clock that well. I would suggest setting these settings and then test the modules one at a time to test them.

CPU Freq: 200 (Assuming you have an 800 FSB CPU)

Memory Freq: 200 MHZ/DDR400

Memory Voltage 2.75 Volts (+.2 Volts with this MB maker)

Memory Timings: Manual/User Define

SDRAM CAS Latency: 3T

SDRAM RAS to CAS Delay (tRCD): 3T

SDRAM Row Precharge (tRP): 3T

SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay (tRAS): 8T
