I read/research a lot. First time asking a personal question. Thanks for any help. I enjoy knowledgebase.
Built a rig about 8 months ago. Over Christmas, I made a rush purchase of 8GB (2x4gb) RAM to add to my current 8GB (2x4gb) RAM for a total of 16 GB. I only play games so judging from other posts, it's not really necessary. I'm not sure why I did it.
Gigabyte 970A-D3 MB
Radeon HD 6850
ADATA 1.5V CL9 2x4GB (http://www.memory4less.com/m4l_itemdetail.aspx?itemid=1445708585&partno=AD3U1333C4G9-B)
And I bought Kingston HyperX 1.65V CL9 2x4GB (http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/KHX1333C7AD3K2_8G.pdf)
I'm a bit wary of the different voltages between the two sets. And I did recently experience some computer shut-offs (not freezes or BSOD, just shutoff like it lost power) in the past couple weeks.
I did a Memtest (Original version) and it hangs and the computer freezes within a minute. I plan on trying a memtest+ tonight.
I just have my BIOS doing stock SPD timings/voltages atm. Is there anything I should change manually?
