That is certainly the RAM then. Simply return the RAM and exchange for a new set. I don't know of any better / more reliable RAM so it sounds like you just got unlucky. I'm glad you ran memtest to find that problem now rather than later on when you are trying to use the computer!
Oh, thanks for your reply, but I've just noticed it..
I was very confused should I leave them RAM only or the whole PC, and I left just the RAM yesterday. Before that I was able to detect that error only on the first day, two times. Second day - I couldn't detect it. This was really confusing. Looked similar to the previous build intermittent errors. I left the RAM for them and asked to test longer. So nervous...
A minute ago (that's about a day after I've left the RAM for them to test) I've got response from the retailer/support that they found problems in that RAM set (wow
), so they have another new set of RAM ready for me. I think it's Corsair the same model again.
The thing is I had bought a Corsair 2x4GB set DDR3 SODIMM for a tablet PC before here two weeks ago, it turned out it was bad, they RMA replaced it, and it again was bad, so I asked to refund, and bought Kingston 2x4GB SODIMM, which looks like is working perfectly (although I'm skeptical lately about things like "working hardware", could be LOL... I was even googling another day about technology and frustration, doh!).
So I'm now doubting about this desktop PC - maybe it would be better to stay away from Corsair? I.e. don't take Corsair set from them, and ask for a Kingston one? On the other hand, if so, I don't see which one would be good for me, and at what speed would it be running:
KHX21C11T3K4/32X - http://www.skytech.lt/khx21c11t3k432x-ddr3-kingston-hyperx-beast-32gb-4x8gb-2133mhz-cl11-165v-p-140981.html
KHX16C9T3K4/32X - http://www.skytech.lt/khx16c9t3k432x-ddr3-kingston-hyperx-beast-32gb-4x8gb-1600mhz-cl9-165v-p-138502.html
Kingston price is higher roughly by 100Lt.
Or maybe even take 2x 2x8GB (Crucial or Kingston, instead of Corsair)
Here is the list
I'm looking at.
Which option would you choose (same model 4x8 Corsair 1600 CL9, Kingston 4x8 2133 CL11, Kingston 4x8 1600 CL9, or a pair of those 2x8 sets)? What would be the difference in realiability/compatibility/performance?
Many thanks!..Edited by domino-loto - 3/8/13 at 6:09am
