I would suggest after all that moving things around and heat sink work that you monitor your temps. Just to make sure things are running cool.

What happens if you put the other stick back in? It may not have been bad, it may have just not been seated correctly.

That's good news that you've identified the source of the problem. Odd that the stick would be fine and then go bad. You may want to blow out all the slots and re-install the good one then the suspect ram and see if you can get both seen. If not then I would consider a matched ram stick either 2 or 4 sticks purchase as ram is relatively cheap. I love my newer sticks.
