I am going to do the isolate 1 RAM stick diagnostic test.
If it fails on one pass, I am going to throw it in the garbage.
Don't do that... recycle it.
Btw, if you buy memory always buy in matching pairs for populating 2 slots, and matching 4's if populating 4 slots. If your system uses triple channel memory (3 or 6 slots), buy in sets of 3 or 6. Keeping volatge and timings the same is critical for problem free usage.
