MuddyMudSkipper Posted February 7, 2013 Share Posted February 7, 2013 I have a Falcon V with a EVGA NForce 680i motherboard with a Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 quad-core. It has and still does run great without problems. I have had a pair of Corsair 8500C5Ds and have never had a issue. I just got two more from somebody who said they tested them using MEMTEST86+ v4.2 and said they were fine. When I installed them my perfectly running computer, it would no longer run. Blue screen, crash, restart... I pulled them out and it runs fine again. I pulled the good ones and installed the other ones one at a time and neither will work. They are the exactly the same saying this below the model# "XMS2-8500 2048MB 1066MHZ 5-5-5-15" Then comes the only difference, the good ones say "2.10v vert.2 10140510" and the bad ones say "2.1v vert.1 08241025". Is there some reason why the ones I just got should not work when the others have always been flawless? Clearly it has nothing to do with any setting on my computer when I have a matching pair that work just fine. Right? Are these others (which were said to test fine) no good or could it be something else? And just to be clear, I can't run a memory test on these 2 bad sticks as when they are in my computer it won't run! Do I need to return these sticks or what? Thanks for your help! PS I did open a RMA case but I got no reply, so here I am bugging you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
