GeiL RAM...Faulty batch?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey there....

I've recently upgraded my PC. So I thought I'd go with some GeiL 1GB Value RAM, I've had it around a month or so now and my PC keeps restarting, Games lag and it has errors when I try and save a Photoshop file.

So I ran Prime95 and that came up with an error within minutes. Then I downloaded Memtest and hat found an error at 435%

While browsing a few other forums I've seen quite a few threads about GeiL RAM being faulty.

Anyway, I was just thinking, could this be a bad batch?

If it is then I'll probably get some different stuff. Maybe some sexy Corsair 1GB DDR2 XMS2-5400 TwinX.

So yeah, what you think? Bad batch or just a coincidence?

Do you have 1 stick or 2?
If two try one.. and them swap them out... then...
Run memtest86. www.memtest86.com

Have you increased the vdimm.
If to high that may have caused your issues and if it's still at Auto or default up it a notch.
