But when I run them within like 5 minutes I get the blue screen of death. My mobo is an Asus P5N, supports up to 8Gb. I can't figure out the problem, anyone got an idea?

Is this the only memory in your system? I've heard about and seen a few times where different memory brands tend to not work together for some reason or another. If this is the only memory in your system then try powering it up using just one stick at a time in different slots to test both the sticks as well as the slots on the mobo. May also want to make sure there's not something in BIOS thats not set correctly as that could be the cause of your problem as well.
I have a set of Mushkin 2x 1Gb. Maybe that's why?
I didn't make it!
Not smart to mix Dual-Channel RAM.. And honestly? Why the hell would you need 4 Gig of RAM? Considering that the Most powerful game i know of, or app only takes around 2-2.5 Gig.
Run MemTest86 too see if you memory has any errors

This sounds more like dodgy memory to me, which is pretty rare for a company like OCZ but not unheard of.Gishank02;4118319And honestly? Why the hell would you need 4 Gig of RAM?

When you think that Vista uses close to 1GB RAM just sitting there doing nothing, and then you add on other software (e.g. antivirus, firewall etc) you've suddenly shot way past 3GB. That's why you would need 4GB. Even on XP, in this scenario you're still not far off 3GB RAM and even then RAM is so cheap now that you may as well get 4GB than 3GB.

Yeah, that's what I'd suggest.
Thanks guys, I'll give Memtest a try. ;]
