New Ram BSOD

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ever since I got another stick of this A-Data 2gb ddr3-1600 my games have been constantly crashing, BSODs, programs crashing, slowness, and artifacts in games. I am running memtest86 now but do all of these mean bad ram? Its the only thing I changed in the past, and it didn't do it with one stick.

Are your sticks rated stock 1600 9-9-9?
You're apparently overclocking to 1600 CAS7 - the other stick may be unstable at those settings. Try reverting to 1600 CAS9 rated... or raise the voltage to 1.7V or so. I've seen a lot of people on AMD have trouble with A-DATA 1600 CAS9 sticks.
