RAM Causing BSOD maybe?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277

I have 4x2 (8gb) of this RAM.

So what's happening exactly is that when I have my ram set to the default values ( 1.5v, 1600, 9-9-9-24) my computer becomes unstable and BSODS. What's even more weird is that when I have it set to 1.5v, 1333, 8-8-8-24. It is completely stable. My motherboard by default sets the RAM to 1.5v, 1333, 8-8-8-24. I don't understand why when the exact ram I have is the ram in the link above. I ran memtest86 and it threw up 12 errors while running at 1.5v, 1600, 9-9-9-24. Windows memory diagnostic said there was no errors at all. So I'm really confused. I've had this ram for 2 years now. Should I RMA it? Is there something wrong with it that I can fix? Or should I just leave it at 1.5v, 1333, 8-8-8-24? Please help!

Edit: None of the error's were red. It just said Errors: 12. I will run memtest86 again and take a picture after a complete round of passes.

Provide more specs on your system.

Which motherboard? Are the two compatible?

Did you memtest each stick individually? (Maybe one is bad and one is good, etc).
