ogre_x Posted October 4, 2008 Share Posted October 4, 2008 Hi, I have a Asus Maximus Formula based rig. CPU is Q9450 and I use 2 pairs of TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX to achieve 8 Gigs of RAM total. Built the system in late April this year. Standard timings etc. First a pair went bad after a few weeks (secondary bank). Tested out with memtest and found the bad pair and had them replaced from a newer batch. Yesterday the first pair seems to have gone bust (blue screen). Nothing has been done to the rig since i replaced the first pair. It's running 24/7 crunching numbers with BOINC. Tested today with memtest, and sure enough the original pair shows a massive amount of errors in memtest. The replacement pair works alright by itself. So the question is, can something in my configuration cause the memory modules to pop or can it have been a bad batch of sticks I got in the first place?
