Something is unstable after adding RAM

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I installed some brand new RAM into my computer last night (4x4GB in sig) and something is now unstable. I booted up after installing and reset my CMOS through the BIOS and then preceded into Windows. I ran prime95 Blend test and after 4 minutes I got an error. My first thought was the RAM was bad so last night I ran Memtest for 10 hours and it didn't report any errors.

Any advice on what I should check next?

I would start increasing your CPU-NB voltage. Adding more sticks tends to add stress to the IMC.

You probably won't have the best of luck trying to get 1600 out of that. Drop it down and see if it goes stable. 4 sticks is more menacing than people give it credit for, especially 4gb sticks at that. Drop the multi down all the way for ram, overclock the cpu and nb, then see if you can raise the ram multi. I only have mine at 1396Mhz, and I only have 2 sticks of 4GB.
