Need major help. bsod

after a windows 7 update i start getting bsod. so i decided to reinstall windows 7 but a stop screen will pop up during 50 percent mark. anyway after trying for an hour or 2 it finally was able to install after i took one of memory out. so i installed the memory back in and it shows in bios as 1333 where it is supposed to be 1600. anyway i need help understanding on how to know if my new build system is stable or not. was the ram the problem or it was just fluke. how do i know if it was the ram. what kind of test can i run. i heard of prime95 but i'm not sure where to download and how to operate. also with asrock extreme 4 i could just change the ram 1333 to 1600 with a click. is that safe?. any help will be appreciate. links to articles or such will be great as well.

  1. no problem as long as automatic .. look at the list of JEDEC memory in CPU-Z ..
    say .. if your RAM 1333 (667) 9-9-9-24 and set to 1600(800) ram timming become 10-10-48 or 11-11-11-48 .. that same if you drop to 1066 automatic timing become (500) 7-7-7-21
