Crucial sells defective RAM for Ballistix 2GB ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Crucial really needs to fix this, I have had to return one defective RAM pair already, now my next set has gone bad...

The RAM is 2GB kit Crucial Ballistix...

Look at all the latest reviews on newegg, these people had same problem as me:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820146578

It is rediculous because now I can't even return it to newegg.com for different RAM I don't think because it has been past 30 days ... Do you think newegg.com will let me get different RAM for a refund or keep having to RMA this RAM ?

please comment, and I know a few others on this site have this RAM.

Send an email to Crucial and they will most likely let you RMA it or give you a refund back.

Well they definately can't just refund it since I bought it through newegg.com but if I RMA it through Crucial instead of newegg, I risk not ever being able to RMA or return this RAM through newegg.com again.

RMA it through Newegg, just say they were defective, and that you don't want different ram. If they make you take a new set of Crucial sell it on ebay and buy some G.SKILL!

Likely just a manufactoring problem, and Newegg was got the batch.. Just RMA it with your problem, say they may have a bad batch in stock and that you want another set...

Frankly, I doubt the RAM is being produced defective....
Most who buy it are OCing and probably not providing additional cooling thus damaging it.
It is paramount to place a fan to assist in the cooling when OCing!
