My pc specs are:

Motherboard: Gigabyte EX58-UD3R

Maximum installed memory can be 32GB

There are 4 slots and now im using onlyone of them: 2GB/2304 400mhz ( strange my memory speed is 1600mhz why its showing 400mhz on sisoftware ? )

Now on the motherboard analyze in sisoftware on the memory section it show:
Model : F3-12800CL9-2GBNQ
Technology 8x(1024Mx8)
Speed PC3-12800U DDR3-1334
Version 1.00
Profile: 800mhz optimal 9-9-9-24 5-39-12-6 2T 1.5V

Now i have two same memories both damaged so i took them out now the system is working but with 2gb only!

My pc also have a video card wich is : Ati HD radeon 5800 1GB DDR5

And windows 7 64bit pro.

Now the pc was working fine and after some times first memory damaged i took it out then after some time another one damaged took it out.
Damaged i mean blue screens say sump physical memory i couldnt even load the windows.
And checked with memtest and found errors.

I have now idea why the memories damaged one by one.

Could be over heating? Since i played a lot battlefield 2 and battlefield bad company 2 wich are heavy games.
And now on sysoftware i saw that the system fan is warning and only 43rpm!

But i checked the pc inside its not hot its even cold my a/c is working in on cold and its winter here now!

I didnt find a way to check my pc heating while playing. I can see it before and after but wich program there is that will write into a log the heating of the pc while im playing? Couldnt find any program that will do it.

What can be the problem that damaged me memories?

And now if i want to buy new memories wich are the best for my pc so i can play this games without problems? Wich models excatly i should get? G.skill ot some other company?
And how much memory i can put on my pc?

I guess if it was motherboard problem my last memory now wasnt working too.
Since two days ago i took out the damaged second memory the system is working but slow since its with 2gb ram only!
So what should i do? I want to buy new memories something good that will be compatible my system and that wont make the system to be so hot when playing.
My guess is when i played this battlefield games the memories or something else worked so hard or got over heating and made the damages after some time.

Thanks for the help.

Can you return the RAM to the vendor for replacement? I believe G. Skill has a lifetime warranty that you can use to return the RAM to them for replacement?

it should still be under warranty unless you have taken parts off the DIMMs, like the hear spreaders or clips.
