Faulty set of TWIN4X1024-8500C5D


Recommended Posts

I have 4x1GB sticks of the 8500C5D which was working great for the past 6months

400x8=3.2Ghz @ 2.1v 5-5-5-15-2T, sometimes 4-4-4-12

until I started getting frequent bluescreens, which went on for a few of days.

Then recently they all just suddenly stopped working.

I tried resetting CMOS and using 1 ram stick but all give C1 errors and I cant even boot into bios with them (except for 1stick and that one gives back errors in memtest right at start) :confused:

 

I dont know if the 2 are related but I bought ANOTHER set of 2x1GB (which passed memtest) but I've been getting the same BDOS crashes (crashes completely random sometime 6hrs in gaming or 2mins after boot).

"IRQ Less or equal" or something:

So now I'm not sure if the problem lies my motherboard or something else :confused:

Anyway the 4x1GB that I was using are definitely faulty and was wondering if you can replace them.

BTW I live in the UK.

Thanks

Its very unlikely that 4 modules would fail at the same time, you may want to try testing them in a different system to be sure. However if you would like to try getting the set replaced, please use the On Line RMA Request Form and we will be happy to replace them. Be sure to check the box that says “I've already spoken to Technical Support and/or RAM Guy.”

 

When testing the memory it is best to test with default CPU settings in order to simplify things, so if your CPU is still overclocked then you may want to retest the modules one at time in the system and also be sure that you have the memory voltage set to 2.1 volts.
