  1. KHX1600C9AD3B1/2G has 1333Mhz clock, other one has 1600Mhz. That's the most important difference.
  2. Here is the thing, when i use CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9, i get blue screen and when i use KHX1600C9AD3B1/2G no blue screen.That's why i asked the differences...
    This is my rig :
    Motherboard : ASRock 970 PRO3 R2.0
    CPU : FX-6300
    GPU : ASUS R9 270 DirectCU II
    Memory : CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9
    HDD : WD10EZEX
    PSU : Sirtec High Power Plus 500W

    All of the components are new.

    No, they're both 1600MHz. CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 and KHX1600C9AD3B1/2G

    Their latency is also the same (CL9).

    BUT there is one key difference: The CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 is 4GB while the KHX1600C9AD3B1/2G is 2GB. This means that a single stick of the former RAM has twice the capacity of the latter.

    So you finally figured out the cause of your blue screens...

    Could the memory be faulty?

    Yes, but why?

    I tested them with memtest86+ and no error...

    Can the XMP profile cause this ?
  6. Well there's always the small chance that the RAM and the mobo aren't compatible. The RAM is not on this list: http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/970%20Pro3%20R2.0/?cat=Memory

    My advice would be to return the RAM and get something that's on that list.
  7. KHX1600C9AD3B1/2G this is not on the list either...

    The thing is, manufacturers (like AsRock) don't have time to test all (literally tens of thousands of) RAM sticks out there. Most of the time even "non-supported" RAM works with no issues whatsoever, but sometimes it just doesn't.
  9. Eduello is right, I clicked on wrong memory name on kingston site.

    Regarding BSODs, some time ago, i had a similar problem. I used my kingston memory, everything was ok. Later, when i added another Transcend module (same clock, same capacity and latency) i got BSODs when playing games and testing in memtest gave no clues about why it's happening. I never figured out why did it happen, but after some time, it just stopped.

    My suggestion is to wait and read what is your causing your BSOD and troubleshooting that. You can also check your BIOS settings, maybe your memory clocks go up because of fsb/mem ratio, and CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9 can't handle it.
