Been working on this for weeks. I have 2 x 4GB RAM and can get one stick to work but not both.
Tested each stick seperately in each of the 4 slots and had no problems.
Tested both sticks in A1/B1 and A2/B2 and the system isn't stable. I can boot into Win7 but get BSOD fairly soon even if just sitting idle.
Thinking about ordering some more RAM because I don't mind having 16GB and it's something I could test with either way.
MB: BioStar TZ77XE4 (updated to latest BIOS and BioStar says there is no issue with my RAM compatibility....they suggest bad CPU)
RAM: GSkill Ripjaw X DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) 2x4GB
Any help? Could I need to up the voltage? Is this safe to my hardware? Sorry, but I am new to some of this.
Tried for help in the Homebuilt forum but no response.
Solved the problem. Bought some new RAM and it all works fine now. I had tested the old RAM pretty well too.
Just posting this here in case someone else ends up with the same problem. I tried everything. BioStar wanted me to ship them the motherboard to take a look at. Glad I didn't waste a month or two doing that.
