In my experience, (knock on wood) the seller has rarely asked me to send a bad
stick back.

Maybe I just don't buy very expensive memory.

decided to test each memory stick individually.  I found two of the eight will
be recognized, and and only one of those two will work in the first memory
slot.  If I keep both in the computer, that second stick seems to generate an
error on the panel, even though it's recognized by the bios and Centos.  I
removed it.

testing memory would be  a hassle and possibly not any kind of guarantee to
only pass good memory.  On the other hand, I still need to have good memory
show up at my door whatever the price happens to be.  I have a feeling the
seller is going to want me to ship the memory back at my cost before he will
ship another batch of working memory (or possibly not working), making me his
QC at my cost.
