CM2X1024-6400C4 (1 bad stick)

Hello RAM Guy,

 

I have 1 bad stick of CM2X1024-6400C4 (XMS2-6400). Here's what I did to determine that it is bad.

 

-Installed both sticks in A1 and B1 (as identified in my motherboards manual) and the system stops booting at the memory identification stage.

-Switched the memories around, still stops booting at the same place.

-Placed one stick in A1 and the system boots with no problems.

-Placed that same stick in B1 and the system boots with no problems.

-Placed the other stick in A1 and the system does not boot.

-Placed that same stick in B1 and the system does not boot.

 

*On all these steps I tried setting the BIOS memory settings to auto, 4-4-4-12-2T and 5-5-5-18.

 

Motherboard is ASUS Striker Extreme with BIOS 1002. I tried the memory on another system with motherboard ASUS A5B-E and the same pattern was noticed.

 

The system did on 2 occasions get past the boot stage but gave me a BSOD. I get into Windows without a problem using the 1 good stick of ram (which is how I got to install Windows).

 

Anything else I could try or should I get it RMA'd?

 

Thanks

 

Bruno
