question about RAM memory clock stability

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been getting BSODs over the last couple days and I think i've narrowed it down to memory. I've gotten 3 BSODS, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, irql_not_less_or_equal and system_service_exception. It seems to be affected by raising and lowering the FSB, and i noticed that the ram memory clock changes with the FSB and im wondering if the memory clock not being at stock 1600mhz or 1866mhz could cause stability issues. I get no problems if i just use multiplier only but if i use fsb and multiplier oc then i get the stability issues.

So my question is if the memory clock is not at a 1600/1866 speed can it cause stability issues or is that not likely my cause? my ram is 4Gx2|GSKILL F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR 1866hmz but i was running it at lower memory clock (~1760hmz) while getting the bsods. Its ran fine at both 1600mhz and 1866mhz in the past.

sorry if this is the wrong forums to ask, i couldn't find one for ram.

Relax memory timings and see if it still happens
