Underclock or RMA?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi I bought these ram http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820231428 4 months ago and now it is causing random freeze/crash while gaming. The problem exist with both XMP and manual stock settings, even adding voltage to 1.55-1.6v didn't help. The system is very stable with 1333 even with 7-7-7-20-1T timings. Now heres the thing, should I bother sending these back to the manufacturer or just keep it at a lower speed and accept the loss in $$.

if you have backup ram lying around then I'd definitely RMA them.

If you don't have the patience to wait out on nonoperational gaming rig, then I'd just run the ram at tight timings and low clock.

Buy new ram, rma the old ram.

When your rma'd ram comes back, sell them.

Ram is pretty cheap nowadays.

What about the other ram timinggs, I have put my ram on the most reasonable lowest settings other than the stock settings 7-9-7-24 and it runs fine.

Some times it fails if the other settings are too low as well.

You may have to fiddle with it.

Thats true but fiddling with it may kill it more XD try 9-9-9-27 then slowly go down till it bsods never thought of that XD the other setting are pretty nice though so fiddling with them may be dangerous
