Hello everyone @ Tom's Hardware. I bought the following RAM a few days ago:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

...and for the first few days, it was working fine until I started getting random blue screens. I'm 100% certain that it's the new memory causing the blue screens because I had popped in my old memory and I had no problems. Right when I put back the above memory, I BSOD'ed right at the start-up. I've read online that I may need to adjust the voltage/the settings but for some reason, my BIOS doesn't give me the option. Here are the memory's specifications:

Cas Latency: 5
Voltage: 1.8V
Timing: 5-5-5-18

When I go to attempt to change the settings, it's nowhere to be found. My BIOS is the Pheonix AwardBios. I don't know how I am going to use this memory if I'm unable to adjust the settings. Here's the system I'm currently using (I purchased it from Newegg.com):

Thanks in advanced for any assistance you provide. I hope to have this issue resolved as soon as possible. Thanks!
