Ballistix memory not working with memory intensive load?

Hi,

 

I have currently reassigned my PC to run Ubuntu server with some in-memory database applications. After some reports from the database relating to data inconsistencies, I tested the memory using memtest86 (both V7.5 (UEFI) and V5.01 (bios)).

 

One of the modules consistently show a small amount of errors in a limited address range, with the exact same error bit-pattern for each error (00400000).

 

Due to these limited amount of errors, it has probably gone unnoticed, until being submitted to a workload where data integrity is of the essence.

 

Are there any way to make this module work properly again?

 

Best

Crucial has a limited lifetime warranty on memory so as long as Crucial is still selling this memory you should be able to do an RMA exchange.
