so i have just got a asrock Z77 extreme 4 and 8 gigs of corsair vengeance pro series ram clocked at 2400MHz.
naturally my mb clocked it down to 1333mhz or something close. in the manual it says it can support 2400Mhz + overclock. when i have it closked at 2400MHz my struggles to open programs and eventually gets a blue screen with an error message.
my powersuply is 850 watt
running windows 8.1
cpu=3rd gen i7

Which one? Is it OC'ed?

How are you setting RAM speed - manually or via XMP settings?

What is the model # on the RAM?

What is your RAM voltage setting?

nothing is overclocked, my motherboard supports 2400mhz + over clock max. when i run it at 2400 no overclock with the xmp setttings it get the blue screen with errors when the ram is under load. the ram is corsair vengeance pro series clocked at 2400mhz. 2x4bg ddr3.

I recommend downloading and burning memtest86 to a CD and running the test. The program is free and works in a dos based environment. After you burn the ISO to a disc you can boot from it by holding down F8 on your keyboard and selecting your Optical disc drive from the list. If you do not have an optical disc drive, you can make a bootable USB drive with the program on it as well. I have used this program for a long time to test ram.

Your RAM is most likely faulty or going bad. The tests usually go for a very long time. (10-15hrs) If any errors are reported in the passes or iterations then the ram is bad. Corsair offers a lifetime warranty on their products.

You can open an RMA support ticket at:

You can get memtest86 from http://memtest86.com/

I know this post is a year old but it should be helpful for anyone who stumbles on BSOD or RAM issues.
