    Are you testing this at 2.1 volts still?

    What i would do now is just try one kit (4GB) at a time. However if you do this, load up the optimised defaults & save.

    Then after the reboot go back into the bios and change some specifics before memtesting.


    Change,

    1) Performance Enhance = Standard
    2) tRFC = 56
    3) DDR2 Voltage +0.2 = 2.0volts
    4) Main timings to 5-5-5-15
    5) Leave the Memory Multiplier to Auto

    You should also be sure that these match >>>
    *Channel A & B*
    Static tRead Value.........................:9

    Try also these changes >>>
    trfc....................80

    MCH Core ............. 1.24-1.34

    Ram voltage set to 2.1 if you have not already

    I put 1st set in 1st dual slot and tested came back no errors
    put 1st set in 2nd dual slot came back no errors
    put 2nd set in 1st dual slot failed
    put 2nd set in 2nd dual slot failed

    i take it this would mean i set is no good

    I haven't got a P45 board and unlike the P35 chipset the bios is split down even further into individual channel adjustment.

    However, if you did Load up the optimised defaults (especially after tweaking specifics - as suggested in this thread), SAVE & allow the reboot and then go back and set up the settings I suggested on the last post, then short of a bios anomaly, then I would say one set is NOT the same as the other.

    The problem with all makes of memory is unless you buy a kit, or two kits from the same batch, they may well be different in more ways than one.

    Seeing as the settings I gave you were "reasonable" ie not too tight or too relaxed then that failing set might not be "faulty", but equally they are not very good and certainly don't match the "Good set".

    After reading many posts over at the official Corsair forums, I would say you've done more than enough for Corsair to grant you Replacement Memory on the bad kit.
    Just confirm with them that you've got two Corsair kits and whilst one works the other one doesn't.
    Although you'll no doubt get a better kit, just like the good kit you have now, there is no guarantee it will work well with the kit you already have when you use the whole 8GB together - you can only hope both kits will perform ok together without error at 800Mhz or more.

    Ya, sounds to me like one set is bad for sure. What you could do to be sure is try each stick one by one and then mark the ones that fail.

    Be sure you keep the "Sets" separated so you can compare your test results from the kit tests, to the single stick tests. But from what you posted sounds like a bad set for sure as either should boot and work at the settings mentioned

    Corsair should replace your memory especially as you have the exact same product (ie another 4GB kit of their memory) and you have tested both kits under the exact same conditions - and one kit fails.

    I know Lsdme likes Mushkin memory and I tend to like OCZ simply because of the product and more importantly the service I get here in the UK.

    We see, Mushkin, Corsair, Crucial, OCZ, Gskill, Geil, Patriot and others here on the forums and most of the time all makes will work with a good selection of Gigabyte boards. Some might need more tweaking than others.

    Tend to see a lot of OCZ and Corsair, but then as they are the market leaders (I'm not suggesting they are the best or more prefferable) and compete with each other, thats to be expected.

    All I can really suggest, is that if you do wish to go for 8GB and you are looking for an alternative to Corsair, then either buy an 8GB kit or 2 x 4GB kits at the same time and if affordable, but something with some guaranteed headroom, ie DDR1000. You might not be able to run it at 1000Mhz when all 8GB is installed, but it should help to ensure, that you will be able to run at 800Mhz (and possibly more) with stability.
