Yes it's definitely the ram. I tried the same settings as the first stick with just the second stick, and didn't even get close of working.
Now my question is, What would cause this? And more importantly what can I do?
My only comfort is the ram is dirt cheap now.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory - Retail
Sad part was I bought the first stick when it was 109 bucks, the second when it was 75 bucks.. and now its 28 LOL, and I have 14 bucks off to newegg so big whoop 14 bucks..
But still I don't want to just throw that 75 bucks in the garbage because the ram is most likely a dud stick...
EDIT: Also would it be possible to buy it for 28 bucks now, and then when i get it put in the bum stick and RMA it and just get whatever money back I could get? I am sure its not the correct way to do it but would it be possible or would that not work?
EDIT2: Actually, I checked my newegg account and I can still return/exchange the ram from when I bought it for 75 bucks.. would that be a better idea and just say its not working correctly, and having a lot of problems when it comes to overclocking as oppose to the other? or is newegg like every other company and you cant use overclocking as an excuse because it voids your warrenty etc..
