some motherboards set bad timings for the ram and it causes instability.

My advice is to set everything to stock manually and see if there are less problems.

is it still considered overclocking if the specs on the RAM were set as faster than what the motherboard had as defaults? i defaulted to what the RAM settings were supposed to be according to G. skill, and though there were minimal changes, it seems to have done the trick.

I would get random BSOD messages anyway before my BIOS tweak, so it can only get better from here.

...i spoke too soon. it crashed again, same message as before. if i run the games at too high of a setting, is that causing instability? what else can I change? i'll try anything, including reinstalling windows, though i don't want to...

just a note...i had an amd system with dual channel memory giving me a headache. i would test single stick tests and it would pass. finally tried dual and it started failing...why? because the ram wasnt running full speed for single sticks. so i would test single stick and then all of them at once to make sure.

guess u found ur problem. good luck.

well, my mobo and ram both support dual channel, and i know they're installed correctly to allow for dual. it failed a booted memtest86 that i ran this afternoon, errors were everywhere. i assume that's enough to condemn them and call that the problem, right? if not, i'm completely out of ideas. anything else you know of, i'm always ready to learn (just not the hard way, like i'm currently doing)...

i'm planning to get a replacement set of the same RAM, because it's a hassle free process. think that's a bad idea?

I could probably make a youtube video to help you out a little. i'll let you know when i do. maybe today.

have you tried bumping the voltage a bit? Some sticks don't like some motherboards and want extra juice while running even though they run perfectly fine on other motherboards.

If you have 1.65volt ram, they giving them 1.7

He is right, I almost bet you have some bad sectors.. Used to have the same issue in black ops.. It only gets worse.. Two sticks of ram later no bsod's.

run memtest86 and see if you have bad ram.
