Asus P8Z68-V Gen3 4 memory sticks Freezes PC??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey All,

I bought 8gb memory to add to my 8gb for a total of 16gb.. I have 4 sticks and it seems to be a bit mor unstable know.. I am OC on the CPU to 4.3ghz and the RASM is set to 1600mhz 1.65v..

Now I was wondering is the memory getting too hot and should I add a cooler or is it just the added strain on the IMC??

IF you think it is added strain on the IMC should I get 2 8gb sticks?? I Would like to keep 16gb of memory and before you say I don't need it well maybe NOT ALL 16 but I need close to 8- 10gb on an application I run which is memory intensive.. So I would like to stick with 16gb for now but if this is a no go with 4 sticks Please let me know..

I am going to try and put them back in now I got the OC stable but for the meantime would it be better to try a Memory cooler ort just stick with 2 8gb sticks??

Too much IMC strain, get 2x8GB sticks or don't overclock at all.

Well turns out it was a little metal screw inside my PSU causing the issues.. I put all 4 sticks back in and has been fine ever since.. I even got my OC to 4.5ghz on Air.. I am going to try for more sometime maybe this weekend when I have some spare time to goof off with OC'ng..
