Are you following the instructions in the motherboard manual for correct slots?

Dwiz86 May 30, 2012 2:09:10 PM I think it might be one of my sticks. I thought they worked individually, but when I swapped out the ram in primary channel, the swap froze my windows again. I was also thinking, do i have to change anything in my BIOS for my RAM? rolli59 a c 230 } Memory May 30, 2012 3:01:38 PM You should not they should just run at their SPD setting until you tweak speed. Dwiz86 May 30, 2012 3:27:53 PM i see. I'm going to exchange ram and go from there. keep you posted. Thanks for the help. Dwiz86 May 30, 2012 5:02:55 PM So I exchanged for another corsair xms3 and installed them both. THEY WORK!!! My pc is running real smooth.
