    Memory bites the dust

    Well, one of my "overclocked since day one" stick of Apacer Infineon memory (128 MB) sticks has bit the dust It no longer responds and when used alone, the system beeps like there's no memory present. I personally think the SPD module crapped out but oh well, it doesn't work.

    Anyone have any recommendations for a replacement stick (or two)??

    At least my redundancy strategy of buying two 128's instead of one 256 is paying off...

    OC'ed in what way? clock speed or latency?
    yeah, get it replace (of course you were not running it oc'ed, right? )
    Impossible? Watch me.

    I overclocked it to CAS 2 from a stock designation of CAS 3.

    Also, for some strange reason the P3B-F has no option for 3.3 V (it uses 3.5 V by default)
