    My 4th stick just died today :/ I still got 4 more left ;)

    All other replaced stick branded by Kingston, Hynix and Nanya work perfectly.

    Now I got cheap Integral stick. We will see how this one will work.

    Integral is exactly Micron chips ;) Exactly the same specs and color as this on that failed.

    The problem is when I installed the new stick another Micron died :/ So 5 out of 8 are dead right now.

    These things must just run too hot?

    But what can I do... Installing additional heatsinks on the core of each module didn't helped.
