BTW, your the first that I've heard of getting DOA G.Skill, everyone else raves about them.
Yeah, I don't know what it is with me. Sucks. No special cooling for the RAM, but my OCZ has run fine for a few months. Gotta alotta lotta air, so I don't think it's that, maybe it's me.
Only one stick was bad of course, and I played with the one that was good briefly before I sent it back, and wow, for a 1GB stick it was awesome!! Way better than my OCZ Platinum. It did 240 FSB @ 2-3-3-6 1T @ 2.65V, no problem, but I didn't want to change my multiplier, so I didn't see how far it would go, but my processor ran fine at 2.88GHz on air, which surprised me as well. I've changed my mind about these sticks, and am sending it back for a replacement rather than a refund like I was going to. Now if I can just get it processed, and back to me by the 16th when I check out of this hotel, and head back to sea.
You may as well go for these, dude. The price is right to take a gamble on, you can't really let that it was DOA for me sway you, sorry. I have that kinda luck with stuff.
