Re: Please help - kernel crashes often
Yeah, I looked at the memory. It's got a PQI sticker (at least one set)
It's SUPPOSED to be "(Samsung, Micron, Elpida, Infineon, Hynix OEM)" -
which would align it basically with what Supermicro suggests:
Anyway, I called Supermicro. I'm going to order their
recommended/proper heatsink, air shroud, and then also call up the
vendor I got the RAM from and tell them they did not deliver the
proper stuff. They'll put up a fight, because they don't do good
business - so tomorrow looks to be fun.
Hopefully between those two any cooling and any RAM issues will be out
of the equation.
