lock up's with geil pc3500, prime95 error

[email protected] = no errors in memtest, OS freezes at full load; highest temp is 52°C
[email protected] timings = no errors in memtest, OS fine while running SAH, IL-2 and FS2004 lock up needing a manual restart
[email protected]

Right now running SAH, [email protected] 2.72V, temp is stuck at 49°C. I'm afraid it'll need more juice (2.9V) at anything higher than 210?


EDIT: i increased vcore to 1.7V, stock timings and fsb, but still get an error in prime95 after 1 hour and 27 minutes. i suppose it's a bad stick? i'm about to rma it...
