New Build - Random Blue-Screens/Freezes?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just did a new build and I'm having some issue. The hardware I have is:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Gigabyte 890GPA UD3h
Phenom II 955 Black
GSkill 4GB (2 x 2gb) 1600MHZ
XFX HD6850
640GB WD Sata 3
Antec TruePower 650w

The issue occurs with both ram modules installed. I end up getting random freezes and these BSOD's

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

BAD_POOL_HEADER

Memtest shows the ram working perfectly fine, and If I use either module (1 at a time) I get no issues, but If I install both I get BSOD within 15-30mins of powering on. Also, the board reads the ram as 1333mhz instead of the 1600, I can manually set it to 1600 but once in windows the system will freeze within a few minutes.

Anyone have any Ideas?

Memory voltage is around 1.5 (not sure if that's correct)

Cliff-Notes:

Either stick installed = working perfectly
2 Sticks installed at 1333 = Bsod's
2 Sticks installed at 1600 = freezes within minutes

Thanks for any help

Is it too late to return the RAM for an exchange? That's the route I'd go since you yourself have narrowed the problem down to the RAM.

Another thing it could be is a problem w/ the mobo. Have you tried running the one stick of RAM in both slots? If it works fine in one slot, then crashes in the other, you might be returning your mobo.

If you do determine absolutely that it really is the RAM causing the problem you might want to consider buying a different brand of RAM w/ similar specs. Sometimes there is wacky incompatibilities. I'm no expert, but those are thing things I'd try. Good luck.

amd ram default is 1333, it will hit higher without any problems

make sure you set the correct ram voltages and timings in bios

for 1600Mhz it usually requires 1.65v , what timings do you have exactly on ur kit ? did u try installing the ram in different slots ?

Hey guys, I asled Ryne to post this thread for me.
Well, I tried putting the sticks into the 2nd and 4th slots and my computer either locks up or restarts itself. I don't know what the exact problem is it only occurs when the both sticks are installed. Anybody has any ideas?

Have you updated your BIOS to the current version? Mine Mobo used to do the same as your does until this flash.
post #8 of 19
Hmm, I haven't tried the bios flashing yet. I see you have the same board as me ajmidd12. I'll try it later tonight and see what happens.

Most G.Skill 1600 CL9 kits only require 1.5V.
Raise CPU-NB voltage
post #10 of 19
I don't think raising nb voltage is what I need. Also my bios is up to date, so?
