Patriot G Series Sector 5 2x2 gb ram 1333

Has anyone had problems with Patriot G Series sector 5 ram with their AMD Socket AM3 motherboards? I have an ASUS M4A88T-M board with AMD Phenom ii x2 BE chip. When I have both sticks installed, windows 7 64 bit blue screens, when only 1 stick in it works fine. Anyone have a solution or ideas about what might be going on? I can only think it's the RAM because apparently it's designed and tested for Intel Chipsets, but I read in forums that people have no problems with it on their AMD builds.

Try installing both sticks in the blue slots only, then both in the black and see if that helps.

Thanks for you response Lmeow. I tried that, but still get blue screened. I tried each stick by itself and they work fine solo, so I presume its conflict with either the hardware or I have to tweak my bios settings, which I'm not experienced with. I'm going to buy what's on the approved vendors list for my MOBO.
