I don't think its an issue with it being defective. At least my parts. I think it just has to do with how well the board/cpu accepts the stuff and if it disagrees with it or not.
I'm waiting for the RMA # from OCZ right now. I asked in the RMA request for them to exchange the model I have for the same model for AMD, we'll see what happens, might not (probably not) get the AMD verison, but worth asking anyway.
Hopefully this will work ok, if not, I'll have to replace it with something else I guess.
