BSOD, due to my ram having a too big frequency so my mobo cant handle it?

I have resently bought this ram: G.Skill Ripjaws Gaming 8GB 2133MHz (http://www.netonnet.se/art/dator/komponenter/internminne/ddr3/gskill-ripjawsgaming8gb2133mhz/195041.7060/)in dual channel (2x4gb).
and when i assembled my custom computer, it works! ... kind of... you see sometimes i get bsod and first i thought is had something to do with the graphics card, i looked in the dump files and it had something to do with the ccc as i have a ati card (radeon 7870 gigabyte). but now i think it is the ram and that my MOBO cant handle the ram frequency at that level (2133mhz). my motherboard is GA-990XA-UD3 (http://www.netonnet.se/art/dator/komponenter/moderkort/amd-socket-am3-plus/gigabyte-ga-990xa-ud3/179478.7083/).
so is it my motheboard that cant handle the ram frequency, what do you think?
many thanks in advance!

  1. More likely the CPU is straining....try raising DRAM voltage to 1.7 and the CPU/NB voltage to 1.2 and see if that helps, guessing you havea 8350 or 8320, but let me know what CPU

    It's actually my brothers computer i have been helping building, my own cutsom made pc is not having any problem.
    his cpu is a AMD FX-6350 (http://www.netonnet.se/art/dator/komponenter/processor/amd-socket-am3-plus/amd-fx-6350/188859.7075/). many thanks for your answer! :) we still have warranty from the stor so i can send everything back if they are faulty... :)

    Yep, I'd exchange the DRAM for a 1866/9 set, they never should have mixed a 2133 set (even with the loose CL11) with a 6350, should be able to run 1866 though

    Well thanks for your answer, I will pick up a 1866mhz ram and replace the 2133 with it. I will try that and thanks for your answer!

    One thing though... how come my Ram same as above, works with my build?
    Mobo: asrock 970 extreme4
    Cpu: amd FX-8320
    Gpu: Gigabyte radeon 7870
    Ram: G.skill Ripjaws 8gb 2133Mhz (2x4gb).

    Any thoughts about that, can't find any threads about what ram frequency my motherboard can handle so...? :D

  6. You have an 8320, which is stronger than a 6350, the FX CPUs are rated up to 1866 at 1 stick per channel, even with the 8320, many can't handle 2133 sticks, can check yours in CPU-Z in the memory tab - if running at 2133 the freq should indicate 1066 or 1067 since it's DDR (DOUBLE data rate), CPU shows true freq which you take times 2 to get the effective rate it's running at
