Hi everyone!
I have problem my dad's PC has been
Having a problem sometimes when I/he starts the PC it sometimes
Crashes and just before Loging in it displays the Blue screen of death
Or even suddenly when gaming it really frustrates it all begun when
When we put the ram in the mthb it had support for 6 dimms one failed
And so we remained with 10 out of 12 and still the problem persisted
We kept removing dimms until we remained with 6gb that seemed to be fine the other two dimms were seemed to work fine on another mthb so I'm
Confused is it the ram or the board. Please help!

Set all the RAM to the correct timings/voltage as per the manufacturer, and run memtest86 overnight.

The RAM must be in matched sets. That's probably individual sticks work fine in a different computer.

I actually did some research and I read that corsair have conflicts with asus it's still good ram but I'm
thinking of buying new ones like Kingston HyperX 1600MHz 12GB. What do you think?

I have 6 sticks of Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600 – (6x2GB) 12GB Model CMD12GX3M6A1600C8 running flawlessly for over a year now. My mobo is EVGA Classified 3-way SLI - also works very well.

Since you have researched RAM, go ahead and give the other RAM a try. I am totally sold on Corsair Dominators. I wish they were not so tall.

Second that, Corsair + ASUS = bad news

back in the day i had an ASUS P5B-deluxe paired with 2x1gb XMS6400 C5's and the ASUS board decided to run it at 4-4-4-12 for some reason - took me a while to see it, years later i replaced the board with a gigabyte p35 motherboard and the ram worked perfectly @ 5-5-5-18
