If I Google that memory model number you listed, nothing comes up.

I have a feeling you just don't have the voltage, speed and timings set correctly in the bios.

Run CPU-Z and tell us what it says the ram is set to under the memory tab.

Some motherboards do not like all the memory banks being populated. Check again by running two sticks at a time. Disable XMP.

Btw, how sure are you that it is the memory causing the BSOD? What about your rest system components? Please post your system details. Also, make sure that everything is set properly in the BIOS. If you are using a discrete video card then make sure that the onboard video unit is disabled. Also turn OFF turbo while checking.

you may want to list your bluescreens. Try to run 1 stick at a time and see. I used to get bsods from my ram because 1 stick was defective. 1 stick can slow your computer down and cause your entire system to fail.

ya right now im running my system in one stick of corsair xms3 ddr3 1600mhz no blue screen now and abt blue screen list it was pfn_list_corrupt

Best solution

June 6, 2011 1:37:22 PM

pft_list_corrupt was one of the most common bsods i had due to defective ram, the next one would be memory_management, and irql_not_less_or_equal.

It looks like one of your sticks is defective. I would recommend borrowing a dual channel set from a friend and using those to see if it really is the ram's problem though.

If your friend's set runs it fine, then you sir, need to get a new set.
June 6, 2011 3:22:21 PM

ya i did thing is if im keeping only one stick of xms3 ddr3 1600mhz no errors but when im using more then one of thos ram errors cm also when im switching and using amoungst those ram individually those got no error but when i m using all of them the error cms ...

Reading your posts are making my eyes hurt.

How about some proper English and punctuation please.

Again, I'll repeat, the memory model you list does not exist.

Again, like I said in my first post, which you ignored, you have your timings, voltage and speeds set wrong in the bios. Why are you running 1600mhz ram at 1066??

Your memory does not have to be on a mobo's qvl list to work.

Could also still be a good idea to borrow from your friend and test around.
