RIP my dear Corsair RAM with the blinky lights and Microns

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
well went to take my vid card out to lather her up in AS5 rather then the stupid heat pads. finished that up put the card back in and now I notice my computer won't boot. take everything out put it back together still won't boot. after going through everything I could figure what the hell pop a ram stick out.

she booted. put that stick back in and remove the other one. no boot. tried all 4 slots no boot, no beep, no nothing. so this sucks I'm down one stick of the corsair XMS2 6400 pro with the little blinky lights AND THE MICRONS!!!.


so what are my chances here of letting me replace this stick with another micron chipped stick? could almost care less about the led's as I'm not a flashy person but I don't want to go to promo chips.



anyone have warranty issues with corsair after they switched chip makers?

Not sure on Corsairs policy but I'm sure they'll replace them (the pair).
Get online to Corsair customer support, get a RMA # and ship the pair back for a replacement pair, or, order some GSkill HZ's from the Egg for 114. (2 g)

Yeah RMA them, i had the same problem, talked to ramguy on the corsair site, and he suggested to replace both 4400 modules, you already in the US so it would not take long before you receive new ones..........

I know I can replace them but my worry is what will I get back in return. am I replacing my good micron sets that have overclocked over 1000mhz for some promos that might hit 850 or so? if so that wouldn't be that great. granted it would be a nonworking stick for a working stick but I don't want to give up microns for promo's as from my understanding all corsiars are promo chips unless you get the 8500's

Like the others suggested, talk to RAMGuy on their forums. Tell him your concerns, and he'll be able to give you a definitive answer. My experience with working with him has been very positive. If the RMA can be processed as you want, he'll be the one to get things rolling. If it can't be, at least you know that you asked the right person.

well looks like I got lucky...sort of.

these ram sticks are designed for 1.8v and have always worked at 1.8v to get them going. for some reason now one will still work at 1.8v the other one on the other hand doesn't work at that voltage but needs more.


little stumped but oh well

that's a tell-tale sign of one stick dying..
it would gradually need increasing amounts of vDimm to work stable until it dies..
