Fossil, I typically only increase the vdimm when I'm finding the limits of my memory. If I run into instability then I'll give it a bump in voltage. It's quite possible the voltage increase damaged your memory. You also risk damaging the memory if it's not properly cooled and if it doesn't have any heat spreaders.

Good luck

Well it says 1.8v is the correct voltage for dual-channel mode and I always had it there. And honestly the RAM only ever felt warm upon touching it. So I unno.

Ironically enough my PC seems more responsive without the other module in, lol.

that's correct.
@Fossil I would prob pick up at least a 2gb stick or two tho depending on what you use the comp for.

Well I only used 2x1gb because I have 32bit. Once w7 comes out I planned on going 2x2gb.

Hiya guys.

Fossil, I bought a 2x2 set of Muskin's last month while I still have xp32 installed, I only got to use 3.2gigs but now that I have xp pro64 it is much different. In total use right now is two vmware smp clients using 600K each, Firefox at 300K, then two gpu fah clients taking up another 130K I still have over 1100Megs left of ram. That ain't all bad considering that the same work load when all I had before was a set of 2x1 Corsair's and my leftover was around 150Megs or ram. That was not good and was the main reason for me getting the new ram. So even with a 32 OS the extra ram will help you out

Yeah I know I'll be able to use most of it but I just figured it would be a waste to pay for the extra(at the time) since I didn't have 64 bit. Now 4gb cost as much as I paid for this RAM. So maybe if I'm lucky G.Skill will send me upgrades! But I doubt it since this ram is still sold on Newegg.

I'm assuming I'll have to send back both the sticks even though one is defective. I have 2x512mb sticks of ddr2 533 that I really don't want to use for the time being. :\\

Fossil, You might be able to OC those 2x512 pretty nicely. smaller ram size = less strain on the ram controller built into the cpu thus = better Overclockability. FTW. Just use looser ram timings like what you would use for your DDR800 kit.

Your defective ram that you have now. If you bought it in a kit then they are prolly a paired kit w/serial numbers that go together. You will be able to tell if it's a matched & paired kit if you have serial numbers on each stick that are identical or off by one hexadecimal number. i.e. 1423 & 1424 would make a mathch set. So most likely you will have to return the whole kit. If your going for an upgrade get a DDR1066 kit w/the tightest timings you can find. This will allow you to overclock your ram from a DDR800 setting in your bios w/out having to over volt your ram. This would = less stain on the ram while keeping them cool. You will mostlikely be able to overclock your cpu close to DDR1066 w/o stressing your mobo too much. So in essence if your going to be getting a upgrade kit to 2x2G then do your self a favor and upgrade to DDR1066. Trust me, You'll be glad you did. Oh yeah in case your wondering and before you ask will the ram run in these boards. As long as your mobo will support you cpu and the bios will give you the option to run the ram at DDR1066 then you could even run the DDR1066 ram at that spd or you could OC it from a DDR800 while overclocking your cpu. Either way you would have the choice w/DDR1066. Of course some DDR800 ram will run at DDR1066 spds & timings but you have to be very patient and play w/your timings & voltages to find the happy medium that those ram modules will successfully utilize a DDR1066 spd.

Good Luck,

N2G

I'm just gonna go with whatever they send me back. I assume replacement which I am fine with. Just going through this day with 1gb of RAM is killing me. Gaming is impossible to multi-task with now.

But I just got an email with my RMA number on it so I'm going to ship it out tomorrow. They say 3-4 day processing.
