is it ok to use only one stick of RAM? I had two 4gb g.skill dimmsand one of them just died like 2 months ago. Since, i have been running on 4gb and noticed no difference in performance. However this week my PC have had like 5 random crashes, only one was not while gaming.

so the thing is that i heard that these mobos' work better with the ram in pairs. could this be the problem?
should I go to and get a new pair instead?

I know the problem is the other dimm 'cause i made a number of tests. i tried the good one on all other slots and it workes. the bad one had problems in all. and when i used both i also had problems. what i mean with problems is that it freezes while loading win7

those ram still under warranty ask for rma and if they came in dual kit you will have to send back the dual kit
