Long story short I had 1 stick of gskill fail memtest, I have another kit on the way and decided I would try a nothing to lose shot in the dark so I set the oven for 400 and wrapped the stick in aluminum foil and let it bake for just under 10 min and then let it cool for around 20 minutes before putting the stick back in for testing. It's currently on pass 3 of 4 with 0 errors and if it makes it though 4 passes I'll put the other known good stick back in and see if it passes as a set. I don't have any explanation of why or how it worked but the only difference I see is that the stickers are no longer on the heatspreader and the solder joints are nice and shiny again. Do you think this will be a long term fix or I should I toss them when my new stuff arrives?
