 This is a good idea. Loads change as things warm up.
It seems like I recall that there were some RAMs
that needed to be written once before they worked
properly. I don't know if these are among those.
Still, John's suggestion is where I'd look first
then you should type replacing the RAM's with a
different manufacture.

PS I currently work at AMD but these RAMs are way before
 my time here.
