Matched pair faulty : replace both or just one?


Recommended Posts



I have 2x2Gb Corsair XMS3 memory in my new PC and one of the modules has developed a fault which I detected using memtest86+ (v4.00). The PC is still under warranty and the manufacturer has asked me to identify which module is faulty by testing them individually, and then send back that one module for replacement.


My question is, should both modules be replaced with a new pair even if only one is found to be faulty? Isn't this what is meant by "matched" pair? Or is it ok to replace a single module with a replacement of the exact same part?
