Crucial failed - need new memory advice


Recommended Posts

My 2x1g set of Crucial Ballistix failed me last month, as they have for almost everyone on here... so I had them RMA'd, thinking I just got unlucky with defective sticks. Later on though (while waiting for the RMA), I read there is nearly a 100% failure rate on all of them and the newer sticks aren't doing anything different. So I just got my new ones in, and rather than risk corrupting the data on my HD's again, I decided to call newegg and ask for a different set of PC4000. Thankfully, newegg agreed to allow an exchange for equal or greater value. It seems I'm stuck with these choices:

G.Skill PC4000, or Mushkin Redline, Corsairs are randomly picky but can work stable after more tuning. As long as its name brand and more up to date, you have great odds it will work fine.

 

I happen to have read G.Skill loves DFI and Opterons. so thats how I bought.
