    Corsair Value Select Problem

    Hi there -

    Bought 2 modules of 256mb PC3200 Corsair value select from Scan just before Xmas. They have been running in a KT400 based motherboard happily up until I tried them in another one (KT600) and the machine wouldnt post and simply produced beeps when the power was lit up. Tried changing the slots around and discovered that it was one of the sticks that was the problem - upon closer inspection...



    Corsair Lifetime warrenty - does Scan deal with this, how do I go about it or is this even covered?

    Thanks

    The best thing to do is to ring the returns guys on 0870-755-4747 ( option 1, option 2, option 1 ) and speak to them.

    When you speak to them - give them the url to that image because as they state a picture is worth a 1000 words and then they can get the ball rolling on getting the memory replaced.

    Alternatively if you would prefer to e-mail them then please use the OLQ system at the following url ;

    http://web6.scan.co.uk/Support/Query.ASP?QueryType=R

    Hope this information helps you

    Best Regards

    Lee

    PS - oh forgot to mention, that the OLQ system does not accept attachments.

    Thats top advice WildMonkey....Many thanks.

    Please let me know if you have any problems...

    I have also pulled this from one of our datasheets, just to try and reasure all the other readers out there that we at Corsair take quality very seriously....

    Exacting Design, Qualification and Testing
    Corsair Value Select modules are designed and tested to ensure 100% compatibility with current motherboards. Every RAM is qualified to Corsair’s exacting specifications. Any changes to the designs require requalification. After internal test and inspection, every module is then shipped individually in anti-static packaging for protection during transport.

    The result: maximum Module Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) is 300,000 hours (Military Standard [Mil Std 217]). In English, this means Value Select is guaranteed to be compatible with your motherboard, to work and keep on working for fewer returns and greater user satisfaction.

    Corsair stands behind every Value Select module with a Lifetime Warranty.


    Hope this helps.

    Regards
    Chris

    Ok update...

    Wasn't the RAM - the little imperfection didnt seem to make ne difference in other PCs so I sold both sticks to a mate and bought a 512 one.
