TWIN2X2048-8500C5D - One bad stick?


Recommended Posts

I installed the TWIN2X2048-8500C5D in dual channel mode into MSI P35 Platinum board. Left the BIOS settings as auto and the PC POSTed. I found problems while running Prime95.


To test to see if the problem was the memory I ran Memtest+ v1.70 one stick at a time with the BIOS set manually to 5-5-5-15 @ 2.1V (I have ver2.3 sticks). One stick passed 38 times. The other stick, tested in the same slot, failed after 3 passes and started to generate several errors after that.


If I RMA the twin pack, what happens? Do they replace just the bad stick or will I receive two new sticks? What about versions? Will I still receive a version 2.x stick? I'd like to keep lower voltage sticks.


As a last question, what is the difference between the TWIN2X2048-8500C5D and the TWIN2X2048-8500C5DF?



Intel q6600 @ stock speeds (until system is stable to start OC)
