    Yeah that's why I said they need to be tested individually to find the bad one. Glad you added that though

    I did a test with two sticks. Since one of them I can't get to, due to my derpness having my CPU cooler turned a different way. It came with errors, so the only one I can get out.. So far, with one stick (being the one I can't get to) with no errors... I may have the wrong stick.. hope it is just one

    Well, if that stick has no errors, then add the other sticks doing the test one by one. If you start getting errors with the next one inserted, then You will know what stick/sticks are Bad.

    I bought two packs of 16GB (2x8GB).. If the bad one is part of the set of the one I can't get... that will be a pain... since I have to pull my whole system apart... I just hope I can send in one stick.

    You have the 212 EVO? Shouldn't be hard since you just have to take off the 4 screws that hold the bracket down, lift the heatsink off and remove the stick. No need to take the whole thing apart. But I don't know what all you have in your box.

    I think you can just send in one stick, however it depends on how the warranty works, on if it works with one stick, or if the warranty is only valid for the set. But when you do the RMA that would be a good question to ask the company.

    I have to take the Mobo out of the case, since for some odd reason, I try to turn the screws that are holding on EVO, just spin... and the cut out for the CPU is smaller (Cooler Master HAF 922)

    Doing a test with two. One being one I know it good, and different one. (One in Black (close to CPU) and one in Blue (one next to the CPU)). With 58% pass... no errors. I just sent in an RMA to G.Skill to get a head start for I can get this fixed. Million dollar question, will this fix the Event ID 137 (error), that happens when I put it to sleep?

    It should fix the issue most definitely. And you should test in the other black one. It's recommended that the 2 blue slots are populated first, then the 2 blacks be populated, especially if you have dual channel kits. Also you may want to check each slot as well, just so you know each slot is working properly. However if you find the bad RAM stick doing the process you are doing, if the system read all 32 GB of RAM you should be good to go. Just get the RMA done and get the replacement.

    A good thing to do though, for good testing. After you find the bad RAM stick, if the other stick in your one set is good, insert it into the other black slot for dual channel mode. You will only have 16GB, but it will be a good test to see if your errors went away because you have 2 Good sticks in the system

    What if it is a dual channel issue, that is causing the errors in Memtest86?
