Pretty Sure Bad Stick


Recommended Posts

Was excited to pair 2 x 2Gg 8500C5D with e8500 on new Ga Ep45-UD3P for my newest build. It's not starting out all that great though as I'm pretty sure I have a bad stick of ram. I tested with memtest86+ v2.11 with both sticks in and mobo all default. 250+ errors after 1 pass. So I reset the bios manually to 533MHz / CAS: 5-5-5-15 and set the voltage to 2.1v. Also disabled the usb keyboard. Pretty much got the same result. More than 200 errors after 1 pass. All errors in test #2,3,4,6,7. Seems like most in #6 but not positive.


Anyway, then tested each stick seperately, 1 pass in each slot. Stick A--Errors in every slot. Consistently got over 200 errors in each slot. Again Test #2,3,4,6,7 had the errors every time. Stick B--No errors in any of the 4 slots.


Sounds like bad ram to me. Whattaya think?

Just wanted to follow up with a thank you. New modules arrived the other day and the install went great. All working good so far.


Excellent job Corsair and Ramguy.


This was the 4th different set I've bought over the years. I will be buying Corsair in the future.


Keep up the great work!
