Hey guys

So before we go any further, specs:

current setup: Intel i5-3570k CPU default 3.4GHz running at 4.3GHz Corsair Vengeance DDR3 2133mhz Ram 2x4Gb Installed Asus maximum gene V Motherboard. + 2x4Gb sticks of ram sat on my desk brand new

Corsair Memory Vengeance Racing Red 8GB DDR3 2133 MHz CAS 11-11-11-27 Dual Channel Desktop - CMZ8GX3M2A2133C11R - Scan.co.uk

So i started by overclocking my CPU for the first time in a year of ownership and found a stable setup at about 1.3v for 4.3-4.4 GHz

After leaving it for a week with no windows freezes or game crashes i bought a ram upgrade, from my research its identical to the ram i first got in my machine.

Thus when installed, total ram is 16Gb. Ran fine for a while but then got a bsod. i've received 3-4 in the past week. 3 for memory and one for bad pool header.

In my investigations, the motherboard was already running my ram too slow so i kicked it up to 2133mhz. Still got errors, so i lowered my overclocked cpu incase that was the error. nope, still there.

Upped the ram voltage from the auto 1.5 ish to 1.6v, then i got the bad pool bsod. but with so much going wrong i'm massively confused and need help! :( :( :(

Also, updated my BIOS to latest version, still didn't help.

So my machine will always boot fine, i get a bsod after use. most frequently this week its been when i've been running a starbound server, playing starbound with youtube or a skype video call running too.

any thoughts on how to proceed from here?

i'm back on the last stable configuration which is overclocked CPU and old ram installed, new ram on my desk.

Cheers

George

You can try a few setups to rule stuff out. Try the new RAM without the old RAM and standard clock speeds then the same overclocked. That way you can test whether the new RAM is faulty or not faulty but unsuitable for overclocking. If both setups work fine then it is the combination of old and new modules (maybe different CAS values or a problem with dual channel mode).

The simplest fix is probably to return the new RAM, sell your old RAM and buy a new set of identical modules suitable for overclocking.

i'll try that out later, right now i'm running my stable setup to get some work done.

I'll add to this thread that i just pulled my old ram and sat it side by side with new. everything is identical. everything. timings, speed, etc... the only difference is my new ram says ver 3.54 and my old ram says ver 4.1. literally the only difference. same color and same information sticker etc...

Also, duno if its relevant but i ran memetest86 with all 4 sticks installed and got a few 100-1000 errors.... haven't had the time to be smart about it and just test the new ram on its own to see if its faulty.

memtest86 should tell you which sticks had the errors.

Version is the IC's running under the hood on the sticks you're running.

Make sure you reset your bios whenever you switch memory sticks. They will have different subtimings needed for each version of the ram
