one stick dead after 3 days. 05/09/2011
was fast and stable. before the one stick started going bad.
asus m4a79 id it as 1600 ram.
low voltage of 1.5v
one stick died after just three days. i had a couple crashes in a video game. then i had some problems with the SATA, then i started having post freezes and BSOD's
i swapped everything around and found that one stick would run fine. the other would not even POST. much less past memtest.
i have never had a problem with Gskill ram before. i was just unlucky and got a bad stick.
new egg issued a RMA for refund. i had to send both sticks back and pay a small restock fee. so it is back to the ancient back up box till the new ram arrives!
good news is that the egg had some 2x4gig sticks on sale in 1300 so i am going to give g-skill another go. i really wanted 8gb anyway! LOL!
