New build Sabertooth with 8120, & 32 GB GSkil Ram BSOD!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So Ive just built a new desktop for my mom, and decided to toss my Crosshair after building her a Sabertooth, with an 8120, and 16gb ram and a intel 240gb ssd. System blew me away so much that i felt the need to toss my croshair in the recycle bin...

Now my problem was that I built it using the following....

Sabertooth 990FX Bios 1304
FX 8-Core Black Edition FX-8120
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL9 DIMM
OCZ Agility 4 120GB SSD
Segate 2TB 64mb HDD
RAID 5 2TB Array (4 500gb Hdd)
3 Gigabyte GeForce GT 630 (GV-N630-1GI) 1024MB DDR3

Installed windows pro 64bit, system ran perfect got a lower score than my moms built which kinda pissed me off (6.7 was my score and my moms is 7.1)

Now because im running 6 monitors, and do a fair bit of photoshop and dreamweaver etc I figured I would bump up to 32 GB Ram, I purchased G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL10 and then thats where I got my first BSOD. The computer passed the Bios Boot, and starts windows then the little window logo goes out and presto bango BSOD.... So Im leaning to the board not liking the GSkill, or I missed something when I checked the BIOS.

So I popped the 16 GB corsair back in and works fine, dbl checked my OC menu and things stayed the same. But now for some odd reason when I check my computer its now telling me that I have 15.8GB of Usable Ram vs 16 now. So Im a little perplexed as to where that 256Mb went off and ran to. Theres no onboard GPU so whats taking and using the ram?

My biggg question is should I stick to corsair, or is gskill a reliable brand?

Thanks in advance.

I also read that many ram modules are a little buggy when you fill all four ram slots. I also would recommend updating your sabertooths bios:thumb:.
