Nothing fishy about it. They are a electronic piece and on of the chips can be faulty or shorted out.
The system may have taken a spike in electric and the memory took the blunt of the shock.

There is no doubt in my mind that the 2 gig memory module you have is bad.
The reason for the other freezing with one stick is there may be to much trying to run with just the one stick of 1 gig of memory.

sli ram?
SLI is a capability of the MOBO to have two video cards in a system that work together.
Memory on a video card at least the newer ones is figured as
GDR2, GDR3 or GDR5
Ram memory is figured as
DDR
DDR2
DDR2 Dual Channel
DDR3
DDR3 Dual Channel
DDR3 Triple Channel

If your MOBO is nvidia sli certified then yes you should be able to. The difference is the sli memory is suppose to run a bit faster. Since you mentioned OCZ I researched and found the following technical release from OCZ about their memory.

—New OCZ PC2-6400 Memory Modules are NVIDIA nForce SLI Certified resulting in better performance with select NVIDIA nForce motherboards—
The new OCZ PC2-6400 SLI-Ready Series is equipped with NVIDIA Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) to optimize the modules’ performance on nForce® SLI-based motherboards. OCZ exclusively engineered select high-performance modules with advanced SPD (Serial Presence Detect) settings to allow compatible motherboards to recognize and utilize the added information, ultimately increasing the performance potential of the entire platform.

OCZ PC2-6400 SLI-Ready memory modules are programmed to boot at 800MHz DDR2 with supremely fast timings of 4-4-4 1T. Only motherboards equipped with the custom-designed BIOS, such as those designed for NVIDIA nForce SLI MCPs, can detect the optimized SPD profiles and ensure the memory functions under the best possible conditions. The exclusive OCZ SPD specifications take out the guesswork and provide enthusiasts and gamers with significant overclocked performance with no manual adjustment or compatibility issues.

Each OCZ SLI-Ready module comes equipped with an exclusive NVIDIA XTC heatspreaders for the most efficient heat dissipation and a look that stands out like its performance. Additionally, all SLI-Ready memory is backed with toll-free technical support, the exclusive EVP (Extended Voltage Protection) coverage, and an industry leading Lifetime Warranty.

With the fusion of the sophisticated EPP memory specification and cutting-edge, high-speed OCZ DDR2 architecture, the PC2-6400 edition is the ultimate breakthrough for advanced SLI platform performance.


The speed difference is the only difference between regular DDR2 memory and SLI DDR2 memory. I'm not really sure if the price is more that I would spend the extra for a few seconds more faster memory.
To answer your question it looks like you can run it.

You would have to contact the company you bought it from or the manufacturer.

Timing yes and is that two different sticks of memory you are talking about with different timings?
.
Check this site out HERE as it explains the timings and what the different numbers mean.
