00firebird Posted December 17, 2010 Share Posted December 17, 2010 for more background please see this thread http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic153121.html#post931779 It recently came to my attention that my Ibuypower Build had memory that is NOT on the compatibility list. http://www.corsair.com/configurator/product_results.aspx?id=1330436#other_modules I am running the now discontinued TW3X4G1333C9D. I haven't been able to pinpoint any of my random freezes (90% of the time) and BSOD's (10%). The BSOD minidumps point to memory corruption. Yet I have perfect performance on my PC when it isn't freezing. I ran 17 HOURS of memtest on both sticks one at a time, and NEITHER returned any errors. Is this normal for compatability issues? I even scored a 7.5 on the windows performance. I was perhaps assuming that if it were incompatible memory that it would not boot or perhaps run strangely, or i'd see other problems. parts are still warrantied, but I'd like to hear what corsair's stance is on a possible solution? Thanks in advance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
