when I had 16gb of vengeance I bought them all stick by stick because it was much cheaper because of a sale, they all work pretty damn good.

Never happens biggrinsmiley.gif

Kits were always sold cheaper by a few ticks compared to individual sticks.

By cheaper, you might mean, cheaper cause your buying them by piece (X1) rather than in kit form (X2) which is almost twice the price of a stick. doh.gif

So, It's good idea to get kit of 8x2?
Guys, how do we think, what ram looks best at UD5?
I am choosing between Corsair Vengeance Pro or XM3

P.S I will try with that Kingston in another slot, little bit later.

2 DIMMS > 4 DIMMS for same size/capacity.

For choosing RAMs, go for the tightest Timings and Lowest Voltage Ratings.

When I got my vengeance, it was on sale for 26$ a stick, while the 2x4 kits were 62$.....so I was saving 10$ per 8gb kit.....I had bought a total of 4 sticks for 104$ instead of 124$....so yes, it was cheaper.

No way!!!

Not being a snob but that simply look ridiculous. Not telling you are lying either.

I doubt they are of different Spec from the get-go with the same Vengeance Branding.

If you can find another deal like that, and a deal that's as black and white as BLACK and WHITE, duh!! I don't know what to say anymore.

This was in April 2012 though. I ended up buying 2 black ones and 2 blue ones.

yes it is preferred, however usually you are ok mix and matching, but this is more true the higher speed you go. if it were me just buy fast ram as a kit and dont have to worry about messing with it

Well, my ol'ladys computer is doing the same thing mine had done.

When idle, it shuts down, with fans running.

So, that ram must be bad, since that's the one common thing between our computers. I used my old ram on hers. Maybe that GTX 780 wasn't bad, and it was the ram. I just don't understand why replacing the GPU stopped the issue?

Now, other things. I did use her current GPU with the PSU in my system right now. Maybe my PSU is the cause, and it just took a while to show up?

The only thing you can do to determine what the problem is is due to testing several components.

One of the best monitor programs i use is HWINFO64, i can monitor almost anything about my system and what it does under load.

you can for example monitor what your GPU is doing under load and idle and make sure its above 12V or slightly below 12V.

To test your RAM many people use memtest or maybe there are other programs to test RAM.
