did your G.Skill HZ die too?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
So far I know of one other person who had the exact same thing happen. My Ram died so did FrankenPC's... only difference is mines the DDR2-800 and his is the DDR2-1000... So yeah... just wondering if this is normal with g.skill...?


Oh yeah... I tested both dimms and they were both fried...

You dont need active cooling unless you are putting greater than 2.8v. (for DDR)

Ive got 3.2v running through mine and they are still not too hot

Disclaimer: ONLY Winbond BH-5 and CH-5 chips can take these voltages. (Used in a few DDR modules)

These are only available on 512mb sticks and are very rare.

never exceed your stated voltage unless you are certain the IC's can take it.

Since you have DDR2 i believe the limits are ~2.0v

actually I wasn't looking for advice, I didn't go beyond spec in any way... I just don't think they fully tested their memory before shipping... I already have my RMA through newegg... DDR2 doesn't take the same voltages as DDR, and I don't need active cooling I have a 131 CFM fan blowing in right where the RAM is. Thanks anyways but like I said I just wanted to know if this is usual with g.skill...

He's running DDR1 if you look at his specs. Those modules can take quite a bit of voltage, but active cooling is still suggested

From what i understand.... no, it's not. G.Skill very rarely has problems with it

dunno thought it was a little strange that two of us had the same problem after approximately the same amount of run time with about the same specs runnign through our RAM...
