2 bad ram modules - cmx512-3200c2

Recommended Posts


after experiencing system crashes and hangs I ran memtest86+ on both modules individually and got errors on both. I bought 2 new ram modules and tested them individually and they received no errors.


please let me know what to do to resolve this issue,

as for timing, I have "Auto by SPD" and for voltage, I have "Auto".


Also, I noticed that one of the modules was failing around 6 months ago, and the other one was fine, it was the first time I had tested them since I bought them over 3 years ago. then I tested both today to make sure I had the one that was getting errors to send back and both got errors. and I've updated my bios relatively recently.


thanks for any help,
