w4rh0und Posted November 26, 2010 Share Posted November 26, 2010 Hi, I have bought the following system for virtualization: Mb: Asus M4A89GTD PRO Ram: Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333MHz CL9 XMS3 PC3-10600 Dual Channel Kit (TW3X4G1333C9A) Cpu: Phenon II 1090T Black Edition Case: Chieftech with a 500 W Power Supply My entire system is on UPS so there are no power issues or the likes. After 1 day, i got alot of blue screens, random resets, errors ... the works Being a dual channel kit, i have isolated the problem by testing each memory card in single channel alone in the pc. With one card is working perfectly, but with the other i get the same problems... They said i have to send back to the warranty both cards since it is a kit. Because my clients would be really unhappy with their virtual machines being down for 5-15 days, i have ordered another identical kit. With the new kit there is no problem i had 0 downtime since i bought it. What i saw with the broken card is that if i leave it for 1 hour out of the system or the system is shutdown, it will work for another 4-6 hours, after that it will crash again. After the 1st crash it will not boot anymore with that card alone! I also have the feeling that the non working card is warmer then the other one after the same amount of time. Btw I have tested the card in the same memory slot and on a different one as well, but there is no difference. I tried running memtest86 on it and it did not find any problems, still after 6-8 hours it is normal to crash. So basically with an exact kit the system works, with 1 card from the kit it works. I have sent them the kit to change it in warranty since it worked for 1 day only. After 10 days they have sent it back and said that the test on them was ok and it will not be changed in warranty, for a 1 day product. What else can i do to get them changed? Since it is useless to place them back in the system. Thank you Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
