Hey Ram guy!

Ya helped me once, pray you can again!

(All praise The Mem King!)

LoL

I noticed many many glitches gaming, so I procceeded to check all I could.

Found As I said I'm failing memtest especially 5 and then 4.

Checked all settings.

Got 2.75 V at RAM.

BIOS set to SPD

Help!

You agree, I do believe the pair is in need of replacing?

Thx,

festin

Please load setup defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.75 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.

How-Do!

 

All settings are at auto except I set RAM Supply to 2.85V.

I set RAM from SPD to 2-2-2-5.

Failed one pair, passed my other pair.

Again Mainly #5 (Memtest)

I relaxed to 3-3-3-8 "bad pair" still failed.

 

Got RMA # and sent in.

 

They told me "There are NO REPLACEMENTS for this matched pair of modules!"

They will "fix" or offer a different part number.

 

PREVIOUSLY I WAS TOLD "DO NO NOT MIX TWINX1024-3200XLPRO WITH ANY OTHER MODULES!"

So what do I do now?

Dump my good set of XLPRO's and replace ALL THE MODULES?!?

SuX

Now what do I do?!? Am I "screwed" out of a pair of TWINX1024-3200XLPro??

 

Why did Hitachi stop production on this core chips??

Thx,

festin

I CAN NOT BELIEVE THEY WANT TO REPLACE AS EQUALS TWINX1024-3200C2 FOR TWINX1024-3200XLPRO!!!!!!!

 

I have two matched pair XLPRO in my box,

If they send cheeeep 3200C2 I kave to yank my good TWINX1024-3200XLPRO and toss them for 125 dollars of RAM Brand New/

HOW DO I GET IT thru CORSAIRS RMS HEAD??

:mad: :mad: :eek: :confused: :mad:

Please call them and ask them they will normally offer you more choices but right now there are no other DDR1 modules available.

 

Well I talked to one RMA Rep and he said because of my situation they will send TWINX2048-3200C2.

I grunted and said "OK."

 

Now they changed tune and want to ony send ONLY one TWINX1024-3200C2.

Which means I had to pay 15 bucks to ship and will have to spend 135 bucks for a new pair of TWINX1024-3200C2 so my box can be at 2 gig again.

 

Grrrr ... 150 bucks because my "Lifetime Warranty" ain't worth doodle!!

 

Tell me would you buy into this "trap" again??

I think not.

So's most likely bye-bye Cosair/

Have you tried contacting them? Maybe they just made a mistake and looked at the original replacement.

 

Yes I contacted "them" and they are sticking to 2nd offer 1-TWINX1024-3200XLPRO (worth a good $250.00) is "Equal" to 1-TWINX1024-3200C2 (List price $140.00)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Argh!
