I have this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Before I installed more ram, I didn't have any blue screen or computer crash with these 6gb triple channel ram
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I wanted to buy the same ram, but ocz ram is gone now

After I installed 4gb dual channel ram, I started to have blue screen and comptuer crash
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Do I have any specific way to put the one set of triple channel ram and one set of dual channel ram on this motherboard together? - I mean the order to put the rams into the slots of this motherboard

When I bought the dual channel ram set, I also tried to match the Cas Latency, Voltage and Timing as the same as the triple channel ram set.

Can someone give me the advice to solve this problem? thanks!

You have Ram that is designed to run at 2 different voltages 1.5 v and 1.65 v... you need the voltages to match.

Other then voltages, look at your motherboard manual, it will show you what combos will and will not work. What your doing will not.

I set all my ram run at 1.5v already when i had the problem. I don't think it should be a problem if those triple channel ram maximum voltage is 1.65v when it run at 1.5v...right?

My motherboard manual didn't say how to put dual channel and triple channel ram at the same time
It only says how to put the triple channel ram on the motherboard when u have it or how to put the dual channel ram when u have it.

It is easier to understand..let me put a screenshot here.

1.5v or 1.65v is the voltage it needs not maximum... you should not mix and match voltage... can you return some ram and get a exact match?
