KAYAK RAM problem

  1. Hi,
    I got a KAYAK XU, 450 x 2 Xeon. I tried 256 ECC RAM @ 133 Mhz in it. It
    went fine for some time but then suddenly stopped working. The sytem
    won't boot. I replaced it with another ram stick, this time a 128 MB
    non-ecc ram again 133 Mhz. This one suddenly got damaged, infact it
    seemed like its circuitry melted. photo here
    (http://www.myblogspace.net/haroon/wp-content/uploads/RAM3.JPG).
    I am not sure what is causing this. Its two ram sticks with in 2
    months. Now I have replaced this one with a 128 MB ECC registerd ram
    @100 MHz. But I am not sure what caused this problem. A wild guess
    could be that 133 MHz bus speed ram is not compatible but I am not sure
    about it. Any ideas?
    Rgrds,
