Loosley Posted September 29, 2010 Share Posted September 29, 2010 Hi, I recently purchased the Corsair XMS3 4GB dual channel ram kit, product # CMX4GX3M2A1600C9, for my Asus P7P55D-E motherboard. However, both of the RAM sticks have MemTest86+ errors. I tried each stick individually, and both sticks display errors. Here are the errors: Module 1 - The first module displayed 3 errors after a 4 hour run. Here is the info I copied down from MemTest. WallTime: 4:22:11, Pass: 11, Errors: 3, ECC Errs: 0 Tst 7 Pass 2 Failing Address 0001dcd7e6c - 476.8 MB Good 374e16f9 Bad 334e16f9 Err Bits 04000000 Count 1 Module 2 - The second module started displaying errors immediately after I started MemTest. 42200+ errors after about 1 minute. I didn't record any further details. WallTime: 0:01:19 Errors: 42240 To make sure the motherboard was not defective, I tried two other sticks of RAM from a different manufacturer, and MemTest did not display any errors after an overnight test with either of the sticks. I tested both the A1 and B1 RAM slots to make sure I did not have a defective slot, and both of them worked fine with the replacement RAM. This is the second set of Corsair RAM that I have purchased (the first was a set of DDR2 RAM), and the second time I have had MemTest errors. :( Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
