RAM problems...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i have this ram kit...

When i got the ram about 2 months ago, i had no problem running them at DDR2 1000 4-4-4-12 @ 2.1 volts...

then for some strange reason, i started getting weird problems with my computer. When watching video, it would freeze/skip/studder/make the screen go black for a few seconds...

The ram never really got very hot, i made a 120mm fan cooler thing, kinda like the corsair one but way better...

so, didnt over heat... ran stable for at least 6 weeks. Folding...

so did folding for 4 weeks straight kill my ram?

I also played around with loosining the timings, under clocking, both... still nothing...

computer has random restarts, freezes, freaks out windows... the works...

then i tossed in a 1 gig kit of low latency Giel 667 that i have and my computer is healthy again....

Is there anything else i can try to do with my ballistix? or is an RMA in my future...??

Anyone have experience with RMA'ing stuff from crucial?
