Bad TWIN2X2048-6400 Module

Recommended Posts

I bought a set of TWIN2X2048-6400 from ZipZoomFly.com

 

They were working great, but then my computer started freaking out and I couldn't figure out what the problem was. Just to check, I did a memtest and what do you know, thousands of errors started to show up on only one of the modules.

 

I don't know what the problem was and I didnt do any serious overclocking. I have a well cooled Lian Li mid-tower case.

 

I would like an RMA number for just that particular module so that you guys can correct the problem for me. Luckily I still have one working module, but I miss my dual channel.

 

I bought the high end Corsair memory so that this sort of thing wouldnt happen. Luckily you guys seem to have a great warranty policy, so I am hoping you will come through for me.

Thanks for the reply. I didnt set any special bios settings. Using the Asus P5W DH control panel tool, I overclocked the Core 2 Duo processor from 1.8 to 2.5ghz, and I set the memory to 2.1 volts.

 

I don't think I had legacy bios settings on, unless they are on by default on my board. I cannot check at the moment, considering that my monitor died recently and I am on a public computer.

 

I can tell you that I didnt do anything funky and that the module just stopped working after having no problems for 6 months. After I removed the bad module, my computer started working perfectly again.

Turn off the over clock and try this:

Please load setup defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.1 volts (+.2 Volts W/Giga-Byte) 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.
