Tested one new stick in a couple of slots and in both i finded errors. But failing addresses are not all equal to each over. I mean In second scan there are some other failing adress, and where it matches, good and bad sectors do not match. later i will add some screens.

Hi Tom

Please fill out your system specs and if you could provide the timings and part number from both sets of RAM.

Might be better help coming your way with a little more information.

Hi Kipper, in first post i added spd screen of both sticks, but ok, will do it a little bit later for you, timings are of a little bit, :/

Edit: As i said before, i will upload test results later, but i find strange thing, at least for me.

In memtest there are few lines about system: memory,chipset,settings.

Take a look what it shows to me:
#1Intel X38/X48 (ECCisabled) - FSB :334 Mhz - Type: DDR2
#2Intel X38/X48 (ECCisabled) - FSB :334 Mhz - Type: DDR2
#3Intel X38/X48 (ECCisabled) - FSB :334 Mhz - Type: DDR3
#4Intel X38/X48 (ECCisabled) - FSB :334 Mhz - Type: DDR3

As far as i know, ddr3 is not compatible with MB which run ddr2, so what it this? Mistake by the program?

I just finished scaning my memory and results are... Both NEW sticks were with errors in all of the slots while old worked correctly.

I just borrowed computer from my friend to check the rams in his mb.


First two photos are with one new stick in different slots.
Next two photos are with other new stick in different slots.
Last photo is with all ram inside.

The reason because i ran test for a so short time is because if it finds an error, it already failed the test. Moreover, i figured out that company, in which i brought rams supports RMA only 7days after purchase...Warranty is 36months, but who knows what they gonna say about that, so im short of time.

I dont see the problem at this point. The MB is fine. The ram is either defective or not comatible with your MB.
Use this site, make your decision and get new ram. Just dont mix and match.
