My System Specs

Default

Any chance it could be a motherboard problem rather than the RAM stick? Perhaps a problem with the slot itself? Intermittent connection for lack of a better term. When the connection is made, things work fine. When not the RAM doesn't work. Changing the heatsink would undoubtedly disturb or flex the board even if you are careful, thus causing the issue to resurface.

Total shot in the dark, but perhaps. Any chance you have a second PC or board to test the RAM in? If it works consistently in the other setup then I would point my finger at the motherboard/slot itself.
