TWIN2X4096-8500C5D - second bad pair???


Recommended Posts

I have now my second pair of TWIN2X4096-8500C5D - Retail on a second brand new mobo with a second brand new cpu that is now giving memory errors with memtest86 and will blue screen win 7 64bit if the system runs for too long. The first mobo I had was a M3N WS and I sent it back along with the original 955 BE cpu - now all the parts in my system are brand new and I am still getting these memory errors. This is driving me crazy. Do these dimms have to be air cooled? (They did not come with a fan) The case door is off and the cpu is water cooled. The sticks seem to be very delicate. If I turn the system off and drain the power and then run memtest86 the sticks usually pass... then I boot in to the os for a while and then reboot and run memtest86 and then I get errors again.


What is going on?
