I have resently bought this ram: G.Skill Ripjaws Gaming 8GB 2133MHz (http://www.netonnet.se/art/dator/komponenter/internminn...)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/...).
so is it my motheboard that cant handle the ram frequency, what do you think?
many thanks in advance!

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/...). 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

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
