New RAM not working

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I recently purchased the Corsair Vengeance 16GB kit from Amazon.It arrived earlier this week, however one stick stopped working last night and the other stopped working this morning.

I may have gotten a bad batch. The BIOS is not detecting it, and in CPUZ under the SPD tab, the Module Size is blank.

I already spoke to Amazon about it and they're issuing a refund without having to return the item due to where I am located, but I'm curious to know if there are any tips you guys might have to get it up and running again.

Did you try 1 stick at a time? Only way to really tell us by getting a new kit and testing those out. Super unlikely that 2 sets would be bad. How did 1 die then the other? Did you do anything to them? Just seems unusual, ram normally just doesn't die...

I actually bought two kits. The other kit is fine.
The only thing I did was load the XMP profile.

I've tried them one at a time, I've also tried one bad one with one good one. The system booted but the bad stick was not detected.

I'm slightly shocked myself. One died a couple hours after the other. If I left them in the system together with the good kit, the system would hang randomly and sometimes a BSOD would occur.
