I purchased "GSKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB PC3-10666 Dual Channel DDR3 Kit (2 x 4GB)" and I am having difficulties with them.
When I installed the two sticks in the motherboad I get blue error screens in the windows 7 main screen.
I tried plugging one card at a time and had no problems for either sticks (installed 1 card at a time and tested in each memory slot).
The problem lies when they are both place on the motherboard at the same time in slots 1 and 3 (recommended by gigabyte for their motherboard).
Could it be a bad set of memory sticks? The package says they are compatible with z77 boards.
Thank you very much in advance!
