    i have built me a ramcooler from junk metal, with 2 60 mm fans, masses of black rubber... i run them at 5v, theyre very quiet;)
    my Intel Benchrig just needed that upgrade! soon, the 9550 will come!!! my father bought it somewhere on the countryside, near Tampa, he paid like 280 dollars, thats a little much more than i hoped, but i dont worry, because now i just have to wait;)
    Quad Action soon, i hope!:D
    anyone has a 775 waterblock and a pump for cheap?

    Case is open.. hehehe but these Dominators get hot.. I'm RMA'n my CM2X1024-8500C5D x2 mailing them off tomorrow... The ones i'm wanting to cool are theCM2X2048-8500C5D x2 sticks..

    I've ran memtest on them for over 14 hours with out any errors.. but let them crunch and after 3 days they BSOD my machine.. After the BSOD, I pull them out and hit them with my air compressor. Put them back in and they are fine for another 3 or so days.. hehehe This is getting old... :banghead: I would buy new ram, but I'm not paying double for the ram.. :mad:

    Thanks! I'm going to try it until the other set returns. I'm just worried they'll test it for a few hours and then just send me the same set back... This set is around 130 on newegg.. :banghead:

    when you request your RMA tell them that you test for few hours fine, but gives errors on the long run. That new RAM fixed the issue :D

    and also, if that is too unsure for you... pump 2.5 volts in it, and overheat them severly, by hiding them under a sock:D that should do well

    If they aren't defective just suck it up and buy new.Why should anyone get a free ride?The manufacturers just jack the cost to the rest of us to make up for the freeloaders.

    HAVE SOME HONOR AND DIGNITY!

    you definetly have a point here....its just, that some people, cannot afford buying new,when its "not running". dominators are praised for overclocking, and VERY GOOD cooling. i dont know how many volts Mindweaver pumped thru it,24/7, but as long as it was under 2.35-2.4 the ram should have lived long,without erroring. my dominators for example are very cool,good clocking, they just time bad. :rolleyes:
    mindweavers shouldnt be too different,but if they arent,i personally find, its worth an RMA, because, the sticks dont delivered that, what was promised. ;)
    In my Opinion, at least a company like corsair, should have the money, to back up the companys reputation, by RMAing every Part thats fails during normal operation (i consider "normal" overclocking "normal for these ram... again,there advertised as the "creme de la creme")
    if you like to rebuy them, i honor you. :toast:
    but,please, dont blame other people for getting what they paid for (if they think,they have the right for that):)
    and
    please dont think, this is meant offensive.... its just my personal 2 cents ;-)
