ok have just spent the last 1/2 hour pulling ot the ram and writing down the no's

1st pair CL1118W.2P 97432

BL12864AA804 8FE5 = These are the pair which are single sided.


2nd pair CL1118H.QY 97532

BL128 - As above 16FD5 = APPEAR TO BE D/SIDED.

So is it just the s/sided stuff which is rubbish or are both sets now out of date.


Regards

Darius

Personally, I would not mix the two sets you have together.

Ok that makes sense now, the bummer is im sure i got the d/sided 1st then when i decided to get some more the single sided turned up, didnt really see the difference other than the colouring across the top edge.

But getting back to Crucial why will the rma it if its still working or do they know the issues with them??

The other concern is if i send back these two will they end up sending me the latest which will then be mre advanced than the d/s or is still the same.

They will ask you how many sticks you have. Tell them what all you have. They will want to replace all 4 sticks. That's what they did to me. I placed my 6th RMA with them and they sent me an email to give them a call. When I did they told me of the issues.

If you run those single-sided at 1000Mhz for a couple weeks they will be broken and ready for RMA. That's the longest any of the 2.2v single-sided ever lasted me when I ran them at At stock I had a pair last me about 5-6 weeks.

Well at least we know why they o/c became a little bit techinical, the only bummer with sending back all 4 chips is i have not got any spare, how long is the turn around.

I think they have an advancement RMA where they charge you and send you your sticks then you send the other to them and they credit your money back. I would just by a cheap $15-20 pair of DDR2 1Gb sticks while they are gone.

Well after successfully using the 2.2v 16FD3 for 9 months all 4 sticks stopped working. First it was one that quit, then a few weeks later two more quit and finally the last stick made an interesting loud noise for about 5 seconds and went dead. They're replacing them with the 2.0v stuff for me.
