New RAM causing Blue Screens

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

...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

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