Blue screen error after swapping ram

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Computer used to run just fine until I swapped ram so I am thinking this has to be the culprit.

Went from Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb to G.Skill Ripjaws 2x8gb (f3-2133c9d-16gxh)

I used the corsair to put in my HTPC and this is the only reason I upgraded.

I keep getting this screen.



any help will be appreciated. Already went into bios and changed the memory to 2133 and changed voltage to 1.608v
Didnt play with timings (could this be it)

Thanks in advance.

what are your system specs?

i5 3570K @4.7ghz
msi z77-g45
h100i
g.skill 2x8gb 2133mhz cas 9
evga gtx 770
mx100 512gb

I think that is all that matters for this. The only part that I swapped out was the ram. Since then I have been having issues. I can screen shot the msi bios if you think that will help.

I forgot to add, the blue screen tends to happen when playing games or testing out OC on my GPU with valley benchmark. I get it less often with just normal usage.

your cpu OC might be the cause.

and have you try using the xmp profile?

I had run this same setup for almost a year before swapping out the ram. Once I swapped the ram the issue started.
I have tried the XMP profile and no different when doing manual adjustments.

so... you made hardware changes which will effect the stability of your OC of the cpu, ram, and pci lanes.

you can test you ram with memtest but i would do it with you stock CPU settings. just make a saved OC profile.

Oh, I had no idea the ram would effect the OC. New to me.

So you suggest I drop it down to factory clocking and try to run similar tests then slowly bring the OC back up?

yes i recommend you drop back to stock setting. no i don't recommend running a similar test. i recommend you use memtest then yes i agree that you slow start bringing up your OC again.

I agree with the above comment. When I have changed RAM, I have always gone back to stock settings and then started the overclock process from the start.
