I finished testing my memory with the new RMA'd motherboard replacement. Wouldn't you know...the same 2 sticks of memory that tested fine with the old board (before I started playing with Beta version of memtest), tested fine with this new board also. And they both ran for 10+ hours each. The same 6 sticks that threw errors with the old board, threw errors with the new board. So I think that eliminated the motherboard as a possible issue. It almost has to just be some bad memory. Amazing that 6 of the 8 sticks look like they are bad. I've already sent 4 of the sticks back to Corsair via RMA. As soon as get the replacement sticks, I'll test them and know for sure.

Wow!! Talk about bad luck. mad.gif

That sucks. gunner.gif Knock on wood, I've never, ever, had any bad sticks or incompatibility problems. I'm pretty careful about checking QVL though Kingston and G Skill always seem to work with my Gigabyte boards regardless.
The weirdest thing I've had is the Asrock board in my HTPC didn't like a particular SSD as boot drive, never did get it to work until I changed from Corsair to Crucial.

i hope not, although our minister acts like he wants to "bring it on". i can explain it a bit more detailed, if you want, but it involves politics so PM me if you want them.

Corsair processed the RMA pretty quickly. I have a UPS tracking number and the label number was created today. Don't know expected delivery yet. Wish they sent via FedEx like Asrock did. If the new memory tests OK....then I need to return the 2nd of the two 32GB sets I have. I only sent one back in the first RMA so that I would still have some memory in they system while waiting on replacements.

Fedex is great for some people, horrible for others.

cpschris-

Just wanted to sympathize with you and say that I am also sending my Extreme11 back to ASRock on RMA. Let us hope they are as fast in returning the board. I was told that it was about a 6-day process. The board was functioning fine for about 6-weeks and then the system started to hang and had to either reset or restart the system. Nothing has worked in fixing it - memory change, GPU change, etc.

Anyway here is to hoping this happens fast. Glad to hear that you got your board back fast!
