Hello,

I just upgraded my memory, from corsair 2x2GB 1600MHz to Kingston HyperX (2x4GB)x2 (16GB total) 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 240-pin DIMM going into an MSI 770-C45 motherboard, and am getting a ton of blue screens.

I have tryed to note all the errors but they dump quite fast, the one i have noted is 0x0000000003b. I also did memtest and recieved 77 errors, not knowing how to display these here i also noted one.

Test 5, pass 0 failing address 0033fd064f8 - 13309.0 MB good 00000080 bad 000000c0 err bits 00000040 count 69

Upon opening the case they where quite hot. Anyone haev any ideas.

Thanks in advance.

Try the new Ram at 1333MHz as hinted at in flavallee's reply.

Also some Corsair Ram uses a higher voltage than normal so check it isn't set above 1.5 V in the Bios.

I set ram to 1.5v in bios, as stated it was running at 1.65, I think this has solved the issue. Its still at 1600 MHz, but I think that will be fine. Thanks for your help.

I suspected it was the voltage or some other problem because the other specs appeared to be okay.

I'm glad to hear you got it resolved.
