Failed after 4 months

Recommended Posts


I bought a kit of 16GB Vengeance (2x8gb CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10) on my last trip to United States in December, 2012.


I installed the 2 sticks on my new (late 2012) mac mini with no issues and it was working flawlessly. But after 4 months of usage my computer frozen and when I turned it on again I got the 3 beeps. I tested all possible combinations to find that one of my sticks was bad. Now, 1.5 weeks after my second ram failed under the same situation (computer frozen, 3 beeps). I tested it changing it from one slot to the other and still had the 3 beeps. So I went back to my default RAM and my computer is working again.


My issue:

I live in Argentina, and after researching on your steps in order to RMA I found that I have to ship them to the states since you don't have any kind of representation here.


The thing is that shipping the memories there will cost me around 350/400 dollars, which is almost 4/5 times what I paid for them ($80 at amazon).


I really need to contact someone at Corsair that could bring me some help since I don't know what to do.


The situation is already very frustrating, my computer is obviously not the same running with 4gb when I had 16, and I don't know what to do to get them replaced, I can send a video as proof of the memories failing or whatever thing you need.


Thanks in advance.

Please use the link on the left and request an RMA, once you have the RMA or case number I would suggest using SKYPE and call the toll free number listed under contact and explain the situation to them and I am sure they will do their best to help you.
