I just created an account cause I'm having a small issue with my computer. I built my computer last year and originally bought this dual channel kit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145251. It has been running great and I decided to buy two more sticks to fill up my remaining RAM slots. At first when I put them in it ran for about an hour and blue screened. After that it would blue screen within 15 minutes of it being turned on. I removed the new RAM and everything worked perfectly fine again. I then put the 2 new sticks in by themselves and got the blue screen again. This obviously pointed to one of the two new sticks being bad (even though they both passed on memtest86 without a hitch?) so I RMAd them and got a new set.
Well the new ones came yesterday and threw them back in. I used the computer a little bit last night and everything was working fine. Today, I was watching a movie and got the blue screen again. I took them back out and am running with the original 2 sticks right now. There is no way I got two more bad sticks so I'm starting to think something else is up. Before I waste a bunch of time with trial and error swapping RAM around again, I read somewhere that I may need to bump up the voltage a little bit or underclock them to a lower speed. I am not overclocking anything and I had my mobo set to automatically detect the default settings (9-9-9-24 @ 1.5V running in unganged mode). Here is the rest of my major computer specs if it helps at all.
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) x2
EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550
I am not trying to push this thing to the limit just want to get it working! Thanks.
