Carlsson - I still have to put the stock ones back in. If the Mac itself is bad, it will crash right away. If the third-party RAM was bad, it will run fine. The problem is, the RAM is non-trivial to replace, and the oddball Torx bit I need is at work. I don't feel like going in to get it during my weekend off.
MrMaddog - I've replaced RAM in hundreds of Macs over 30 years. It's part of my job. That's why this is so frustrating.
