Ballistix Overclock - Calling all Memory Timing Wizards! - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Yessir.. Its a cheap fix for Micron IC's that have 'deteriorated' or 'died'. A lot of people are finding, that this problem is most likely related to the solder on the IC's cracking..weakening or such..and preventing proper contact, after months or sometimes weeks of use.

*If your sticks died @ +2.55v.. this will most likely NOT fix them!! We are talking about 'sticks that run fine for extended use..and them ..are DEAD or full of errors for no apparent reason' [such is the case with a lot of Ballistix owners].

this would probably fix the RMA replacement sticks crucial sent me. i sent two 1GB sticks in for replacement and they sent me back two sticks that are defective but only under high stress (memtest, orthos, etc). i have owned 6 sticks of ballistix and i've had 4 of them do exactly what you said. they run fine and then just stop working all together.

one more question; you're not supposed to flip them after 5 minutes, are you? (again, another serious question )

..might be a bad idea..in the 'mind-set' that this were fixing the solder.. you could be disturbing the contacts at the 'Crucial' [] moment.

* I let mine cook for 10min..as they set on one side..took them out and let them cool for ~30minutes at room temp, before testing.
