MB and RAM issues...only stable with one stick Tags: Motherboards RAM Intel i5 Last response: May 21, 2012 3:18 PM in Motherboards Share gtechman May 15, 2012 8:41:46 PM I have just built a new comp with a BioStar TZ77XE4 mb with i5-3570k CPU. I have 2x4gb GSkill DDR3-1333 RAM. If I put both sticks in, it is unstable. The only way I got Win7 to load was with one stick. I can run stable with either stick in by itself but together gives me a BSOD. Memtest86+ ran fine on both sticks of RAM. Any ideas what to do?

Each matching pair of slots should be color coded. m 0 l gtechman May 15, 2012 8:49:55 PM o1die said:IF you have a second pair of ram slots on the biostar board, try those.

No luck yet. Wonder if I would have any luck asking Biostar? m 0 l gtechman May 17, 2012 8:45:51 PM BioStar wants me to try another CPU. They don't even say anything about compatibility. I notice on their site they list my RAM in 2GB sticks but not 4GB sticks. Should that make me worry? Guess I could order some off their list in 4GB sticks to see. m 0 l gtechman May 21, 2012 3:18:23 PM BioStar finally got back with me and said they suspect the CPU. Of course I don't have another CPU to check it out. Is that just a book answer and a "pass the buck"? I am thinking about ordering 2 more sticks of RAM today just to swap out with my current RAM. At least I could rule RAM out. Currently I am running fine with one 4GB stick in. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
