TWIN3X2048-1333C9DHX and Gigabyte GA-H55M-D2H not working


Recommended Posts



I wrote my problem in an other thread but no answer. It is a brand new computer. Config: Gigabyte GA-H55M-D2H motherboard flashed with the newest F3 BIOS, Core I3-530 CPU, Corsair 2x1GB (factory KIT) XMS3 DHX 1333MHz DDR3 memories (TWIN3X2048-1333C9DHX G). The computer has only the built-in VGA in motherboard. PSU is FSP FSP400-60APN 400W. No overclocking, everything is set to standard in BIOS.


The first RAM KIT which I wanted to sell with this computer was the same except that it was not DHX. It was factory bad which fact was confirmed by the wholesale.


This computer makes very often (more times in a hour) random reboots, power off/on-s under fresh installed Windows 7 64-bit. It made restarts during installation. Sometimes after a power off / reboot it freezes on BIOS screen before loading operating system. At some freezes first the screen became striped (under Windows 7) which means memory failure because it uses the built-in VGA. I see kernel-power errors 41 (63) in the windows eventlog every time when it power off / on. No matter that Command Rate is 1T or 2T, memtest86 3.5 and memtest86+ v4.10 always passes (4 hours 17 passes) with both modules and under Windows 7 always freezes.


I changed the power supply (for the same kind but a brand new one), disabled the C1, C3/6 states of CPU in BIOS, tried to update/disable drivers under Windows 7 but nothing changed. Then I set memory frequency to 1066Mhz, it seems to be working on that frequency. Now I put these RAM modules (the 2GB KIT) into another computer with Gigabyte P55A-UD3R motherboard. BIOS auto settings (as I remember I set 2T command rate) and these froze my Windows 7 in some minutes twice because I tested two modules one by one in the first slot. I saw the same 41 (63) kernel-power errors in eventlog (it is another computer, another Windows 7). Memtest86+ V4.10 found one module faulty in some minutes and the other was good (I waited for only one pass). Now I put another Corsair TW3X4G1333C9A G XMS3 4GB KIT into the Gigabyte GA-H55M-D2H board, tested at 1333MHz, 1T command rate with memtest86+ V4.10 for 24 hours with no errors. No freezes under Windows 7.


What can I do with these (faulty) modules?


Thanks in advance.
