striker extreme, dominator pc6400 C3DF

this is the first time ive posted here but ive got a question about my dominator ram, i bough 4 x 1gb sticks of 2x1024 DDR2 PC6400 C3DF.

 

i have two sticks running in my pc and 2 in my brothers, we're both running the exact same equipment except for the power supplies which are different manafacturers and power ratings.

 

we are both running the same overclocks and voltages, i have set the timings and memory voltages to that stated on the sticker of the memory itself 3-4-3-9 @ 2.4v. after 2 days of these options being ran one of my brothers sticks appear to have died, the pc wouldn't post so i removed one stick posted, tried the other wouldn't post.

 

now ive read a lot of reviews and forums saying that the 680i chipset is the culprit for this memory dieing so quickly, is this the case? or is 2.4v to high a voltage for the memory causing its life expectancy to dramatically reduce? even tho its the stated voltage.

 

any help here would be greatly appreciated.
