So a few weeks ago I put a hurting on a pair of my double-sided tracers. I read about putting them in the freezer to give them new life. It worked! Though, the stick ran, but they didn't OC as well as before.

CL3P2O mentioned putting them in the oven. Well, I have two sets and one is for backup while I OC and push the other to it's limits. So I figured WTH, I'll bake them like a pizza pie. After cooling neither stick would even post. I figured oh well that's part of being an enthusiast. Yesterday, I thought why not put them back in the freezer. Couldn't hurt. OMG, they post now and I'm currently testing them at 1184Mhz 5-5-5-15 with 2.2v.

I understand the oven and soddering points, but what does the freezer do that makes them work again?

The Rocker, you should try the freezer trick. Couldn't hurt.

Wont hurt to put it in the freezer. Much quicker then waiting 3 weeks on an RMA.

The last time I did it, I just left them in overnight. It was about 8 hours. Yes, let them dry before putting them in. You don't want any condensation making any extra connections. The thread I found that suggested putting them in the freeze suggested putting vasaline on the stick to protect from moisture, but I didn't really feel like cleaning the up later and just put them in zip lock bags and put them in.

I ran my sticks up to 1100 with cas 4 last night at 2.2v last night and 1150 with 2.35v. Wasn't able to do that last time. I think the extra performance came from the 10 mins in the oven at 400F. The oven is a little more risky. Mine would not post after the oven, but after a second trip to the freeze they come out blazing.

Dang PizzaMan, Baking and Freezing your ram is crazy. Having it survive and run better is even more so.

It recognises the ram. But just can't get pass the part where they says which memory channel it is.
