    Could be why most ram offers a lifetime warranty. This ram is definitely borked (1.5 million+ errors w/memtest)

    Anyone have any experience with RMA'ng GSkill products?

    They are pretty good. They did not need a receipt nor did they put up any resistance when I RMA'd some RAM a few months ago. Turnaround time is excellent as well.

    Aside from spending 2 hours downloading 3D Mark, the server speed was ridiculously slow, I stared at this most of the day, while sipping coffee.

    Happy Memorial Day, from me, a Vet, to all of you!

    I also spent some time dreaming of the day I have a couple of these, fully loaded, for fun!

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I myself haven't had any memory problems with any rigs. And as you know one rig is running the same memory as yours just the lower 1600 mhz stuff. Also I am running 4x 4gb in that rig without issues. I also believe mine is a tad older. The other rigs are running cheapie stuff except Selene, which is running GSkill Ripjaws.

    I've done well with Kingston ValueRAM sticks. The memory is basically overvolted from the get go on these older 780/880 boards so getting 1600Mhz is easy. Haven't got any crashes... yet *crosses fingers*

    I've pretty much exclusively used G.Skill Ripjaws/(X) in all my DDR3 machines without issue. Perhaps your sticks were part of a bad batch or something if they were manufactured at similar dates.

    I had to RMA one of my sets of G.SKILL RIPJAWS--very easy. I don't think they need a receipt or even check the purchase date :)

    Well as some of you might have noticed I really haven't been on here a lot the last couple of months. This is due to working on a recent purchased Mercedes Benz 1999 SLK230 AMG Sport.

    Figured I would throw up some pictures as I finalllllllllly got around to taking photo's of it. :laugh:

    I have had to repair the top, front bumper, headlights, and replace one tail light. The top was the huge issue! It is run by a hydraulic pump in the trunk and I had to pull it, get the rebuild kit, and completely rebuild that dang thing! Kit alone was almost $400 shipped to me. :eek:

    However I did get the vehicle for a steal so putting bucks into it to make it right is okay. I purchased the car mainly for a resale purpose and will still come out fair on it.

    Nice car Stinger. German cars are pretty nice. I bought my wife a 01' BMW 740i earlier this year. She absolutely loves it.

    Now that's a bummer.
    No matter the case, I always hate governmental budget cuts. *shakes fist furiously*

    Good to see you back :respect:

    Looks like the ram was definitely bad on my main rig so I will be doing the RMA thing on the GSkill Ares set when I get a chance. I have a 2x4GB set of Ripjaws happily crunching away in it now and one of the Patriot 2x4GB DDR3 1600 sets I picked up in the FS section running w/o issue in the FX-6200 rig.

    It's nice to have the whole farm back crunching again :)

    Switched two rigs to crunch for HPF and GFAM exclusively. Daddy wants those ruby badges.

    Indeed. It's a shame to see a project end due to circumstances that are so easily avoidable. I'm against pretty much all budget cuts (except to the military)--particularly those that target science and social programs.

    But we deal with what we have, and I suppose that for the time being this means more work will be done on other projects.
    Awesome--the IVB crunchers are amazing for the power output. 5.3k PPD from my 3770k at 100w AC! :toast:
    I'm glad to hear that it was a relatively simple issue and you have it under control :toast:
    Good luck! :toast:

    Better than my car. My 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero has a new grind/vibration in 1st gear and reverse after my car wouldn't roll backwards in reverse and after me and the tow truck forcing it to, so the transmission might be on its way out. :banghead:

    Also on a slightly sad note, my output will be practically non-existent for maybe a month-ish. Despite my car issues there is light at the end of the tunnel, I will be moving into a duplex from my current apartment in about a month. :cool:

    Hmmm, what to do...I like/ dis-like WIN8. I was holding on for SP1, because there was talk of bringing the 'Start' button back. They did, but it just brings one back to the start screen.

    However, supposedly, there will be a 'Boot to Desktop' option. That I can live with.

    That 'Start' screen? Wow, gee it was fun. For about 30 seconds. Everytime I have to see it? Feels like I am being punished by a team of dumbasses for being slighty more intelligent than a waffle! :slap:

    Anyways, Mashable article.
