tiodiego Posted November 21, 2010 Share Posted November 21, 2010 Hi!, I bought this memory pack 7 months ago, it comes with 2 memory sticks, 2 gb each, should run at 1333 mhz with 9-9-9-24 timings at 1.5 volts. First week since I installed the memory sticks I had some BSOD's. I thought it was caused by drivers, because I updated some of them and I had no more problems for some months. 2 months ago I started to get BSOD's frequently, so I used memtest86+ 4.10 and I got errors after 30 minutes of test with both memory sticks connected. I tried changing both from slots 1 and 2 to 3 and 4, but had the same results. Then in some forum I read something about upping the voltage a bit, normally I had my memory voltages at 1.60 volts because my motherboard doesnt go lower than that, so I tried 1.65 volts and my system had no problems for almost a week, until it crashed. Then I started the tests with only one stick at a time at 1.60 volts, I left it running for 3 passes each and got no errors, so I did again the same test but this time using 1.65 volts. I left the first stick testing for 3 passes again and it had no errors. But with the second stick, it sent 9 errors at 7 minutes of testing. I suppose there must be a problem with that second memory stick, because if the problem was of another component then I guess the same errors would have appeared to both of the sticks. I've been using just the memory stick that didn't fail, for over a week now without any kind of instability problem. I was reading about the RMA option and it sounds nice, though I live in Chile, so I guess it would be like a month without being able to use the computer (a month without playing Quake 3 Arena xD! or other games:roll:) So I post here in case anybody can give me any other ideas on what the problem could be, and some solution :p:. If I have no other option than to RMA, do I need to use the Tech Support Express for asking for an RMA# ? and excuse me for the ridiculous question :D: but when asking for the manufacturer, the option @computer means myself? and what are those Model options? I really got confused on that part. That's it for now, thanks. Diego. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
