The system, with 4 GB total twin GSKILL 1600 rated memories, had been running just fine overclocked. Then all of a sudden there was an ATI driver change, and all hell broke loose.

With 10.1 I'd crash once going into Windows 7 with stripes, hit the reset button to start over, then the system was working fine. As of 10.3, It'd bluescreen each and every time it booted into windows.

I turned off overclocking and went back to standard timings... still problems.

So I downloaded Memtest+86. Here's what I found:

GSkill A in DDR3_1 + GSkill B in DDR3_3 = error city

GSkill A in DDR3_1 = fine
GSkill B in DDR3_3 = fine

I haven't swapped the chips around, but doesn't look like that's the issue. It seems that running the PAIR of them is causing problems, even at stock speeds and voltages.

I'm at a bit of a loss to explain the behavior though. I'm using the F7 BIOS. Anyone have any ideas? Who should I be complaining to? Gigabit? Since each of the memories seems fine on their own, that would appear to let Gskill off the hook?

I noticed last night that with a single stick I was at a 1T command rate. Any idea if setting it to 2T for the pair would improve things? I didn't have time to tinker with it at the time.
