pleventi Posted April 9, 2007 Share Posted April 9, 2007 Hi, I had 4 sticks of 6400-C4's running in SLI mode (2.1V 4-4-4-12) on my eVGA 680i motherboard. One pair of sticks went bad after two days of otherwise stable operation. The computer died with a C1 bios error and would not boot until I removed the offending pair of DIMMs. I've seen on the eVGA site that there is a belief that this motherboard is killing RAMs that want to run at 2.4V due to reliability issues, but at 2.1V I figured I would have been safe. I've RMAed the pair of DIMMs (to my vendor, since < 30 days) and am holding my remaining 2GB of RAM at 1.85V 5-5-5-18 until I get my new pair back. Frankly, I'm afraid of burning out my last bit of good memory. I sincerely hope this was just a random bit of bad luck since I (perhaps foolishly) paid extra for these C4 sticks only to run them at C5 speeds.
