Basically after about six months I started getting faulting modules (excel, Firefox) you name it, that only a reboot would fix. I rebuilt the software once but this continued into BSoD reboots as well. I had loads of good advice with increasing the voltage to 2.8v and amnually setting the timings, which for a time appeared to work, but then thing started going wrong again. Finally a Memtest86 found thousands of errors on the memory.
Crutial, very good customer service, replaced the memory like for like free of change under there warrenty.
That was last July. Now we are into January 2007 and the faulting modules have started again and I have also had some BSoD's, most annoying. I did run a Memtest86 for 4 hours and it didn't actually find any errors, however, given time I think it will as the Memory starts to deteriate.
What prompted me to post was I was pointed to the following 'review' (scroll down the page a little) and it was to familiar to ignore.
What I would be interested to know is whether anyone else has experienced or heard about this problem with Crutial Ballistix Memory?
I have e-mailed Crutial to see what response I get, and I am sure they will again replace the memory, but that's not going to give me confidence I will be running a stable system.
And of course this post may be of assistance to someone else who encounters a this problem with the same memory.
