Hello folks, just built a new gaming rig and it's been smooth sailing for the most part. Recently however, I have been experiencing a few blue screens and windows telling me my memory is bad and I should test it. I run their diag and even memtest and have no issues what so ever, but I still get random crashes on programs and the sort. My ram is running at dfefault 1333 at the moment so OC'ing isn't a problem. I'm thinking this is either a motherboard issue or just a simple compatibility issue. Thoughts and opinions?

Mobo:ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Ram:G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

OS: Windows 7 64 Bit

Edit: Looking at my mobo manual it lists the f3-12800CL9D-4GBRL just the 2x1 gb versions compared to my 2x2 gb version for the ddr3 1600, so im dumbfounded.

This sounds like a RAM issue more than a mobo issue. I suggest increasing the RAM voltage slightly.
