BSOD - Cause of incompatible memory?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN members,

I'm currently having a random BSOD problem as well as random occassions where it the whole system just freezes and I'm starting to think it is the memory's fault.

I looked on the P6X58D-E Qualified Vendors List of memory and I couldn't find my memory, which is currently the G-Skill F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI(XMP).

I started running Memtest 86+ and so far, I've been failing a lot of the Test #4 and one occassion of Test #5.

Does this mean that it is completely incompatible and I'll have to swap the memory or is there a work around this?

Replies are appreciated.
Thanks.

it never hurts to swap out ram and see if thats the issue. You migh have a bad stick thats causing some BSOD n ish. Check your timing from the official site and make sure it matches the timing that your computer is running. Also try lowering the speed and see if that makes any difference.

I will try different sticks later. The timings are set according to the XMP, so they are the official timings that are listed on the website. I dont think lowering the speed will do anything. Even at default settings (CL8 and 1066MHz) I still found that it often blue screened.
