Memory Woes.....

Ok, hope this fits in here.

I have two 512MB sticks fo TwinMos Speed premium BH5 PC3500. They work ok some times but nothing to write home about re. overclocking as they will not run past 217Mhz in my 9NDA3+.

So, I've tried some Patriot PC3200 TCCD modules and these run right up to 270Mhz 1:1. I thought the problem with the TwinMos might be that I cant give them more than 2.8V, so I tried them in a friends DFI system and gave them some more juice (and active cooling) to see if that would help. Still no go, and now I'm using memtest and getting loads of errors.?

Do you think they are dead/dieing?

You get memtest errors at their stock speeds?

In a DFI NF3 board that runs memtest when it boots (built in), yes. It gets errors at 200Mhz (below stock) as well as at 217Mhz.

With the DFI boards, you can get memtest errors as a result of the bios it is using. Those are the only boards that I know of that have a bios for each type of memory chip used on the dimm. Also, those dimms are made using UTT chips, and UTT chips are only speed binned by the manufacturer. It would be up to the final assembler to do the full testing, and that may not have been done.
