Venegeance LPs overheating?


Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I last posted (mainly 'cuz I rarely need to...*knocks on wood*...Corsair stuff just works :D:).


Anyways, I bought 2 kits of 4GB x 2 Venegeance Low Profile (black ones) found here.

I've been noticing lately that when all 4 sticks are in, it will fail memtest (4.20), usually Test #4 but some times, sooner.

So I tested two at a time and it at least gets one "Pass" but on occasion, it will start getting errors after passing once.

My thoughts are that these guys get a bit hot and poof...

I've tried different slots and in different combinations; same results.


So for "'giggles," I grabbed my other Venegeance set (non-LP as shown here) and it's gone through 5+ passes without flinching so I know that the board, chipset, etc. is working as it should.


Any thoughts? Is it RMA-able? It doesn't always (in all circumstances) fail memtest...just when the conditions are right.

I even thought of getting an active memory cooler to see if that helps though there's no guarantee that it would fix anything.


Specs are as follows:

mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3

cpu: i7-2600K (stock clock)

no drives connected during memtest
