any thoughts on settings to change to try and get this 4gb stick to work (i dont want to return it cause then i'll be back to 2x2gb ), might have to though cause sounds like this one 4gb sick is actually bad

upon a little research, it appears these 2x4gb sticks they exhanged me are sold as singles. so i could rma to the manufacturer just the single defective stick. and hold onto the good 4gb stick in the meantime. because with my 2x4gb ocz they are requiring me to send back both sticks even though only 1 is bad.

interesting turn of events, tested 1 4gb corsair stick and 1 2gb ocz stick together and they passed (at 1333 999 1.5v) does this mean it was bad ram all along?

It may mean dead motherboard memory slots. In the same slots, try 2 of the 4GB's or 2 of the 2GB's.

it wont pass b/c one of the 2gb is bad and 1 of the 4gb is bad.

either one of the good 2gb or 4gb will pass in any slot though, so im thinking just bad ram again

Maybe try a different mobo to find out what is actually causing the problem. Put your ram in that computer and run ramtest. Find a friend with a working mobo and go from there.

That's a possibility I guess. Sucks that you have two DOA kits
