View Full Version : Bad Memory?

08-15-06, 10:39 PM
I have a couple sticks of OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400, and it seems like both of them are defective! They wont run at the rated 800mhz no matter what I do. Ive tried changing the voltage and timings, nothing helps. Ive also tried one stick in every slot and still the same thing.

How I know I think its the memory (if that makes any sence) is that when its at 800mhz, I get prime95 errors. I can run the memory at ddr 644 give or take a few mhz, but thats about it. I don't see a point in runing memtest since prime95 gives errors when the memory is at 800mhz.

So what do you guys think, bad sticks?

I'd find it hard to believe that both sticks are defective. You sure you're not missing a mobo setting somewhere or something?
