Yes they are new. i just troubleshooted by taking out one of my ram sticks. And, it didn't blue screen on boot, and there hasnt been a random reboot so far.
I would like to let you know i was running the ram in Double channel. I want to try to run both ram sticks, but is there a way I can run them without them being in dual channel? Like, spacing the DIMM slots by 1?
