Do you test new memory modules?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

It seems i am not lucky at all with G skill Memory modules. In my previous build, i first ordered g skill ddr3 sticks which appeared to be defective (few Errors, 2 or 3) after running memtest86 through usb booting. I didn´t RMA but bought instead new modules (corsair dominator platinum this time for the reliability) and as expected i had no Errors and confidently used These corsair sticks until recently when i decided to build again with new ddr4 and kabylake.  I again first ordered the g kill Trident z 3600 CL15 16gb sticks (2*8) and one of the 2 sticks failed memtest (up to 300 - 400 Errors) while the other was OK. I again re-ordered right after some corsair dominator platinum 3200 mhz CL14 (i lose 400mhz but get lower latency so still fine) and will receive them tomorrow. I also asked a replacement for the g skill modules and hopefully i receive good modules this time (if working well i will then choose one of the pairs for the build and Keep the other as a reserve).
