post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
well i been useing 4 sticks of 1gb HZ for a year now and well looks like one of them finally gave out on me

geting random freeze and restarts so tryed ram 1 by 1 with mem test and one of them is giveing me alot of errors on memtest86 even on stock speed and voltage.....that means its a bad stick right?

I know that G-Skill has a 100% life time warranty. Your best bet is to call them and see what they say about RMA. If you just send one or have to send both.
