Hey guys!
I recently finished building a PC and am running into some problems i think is the memory.
Everything runs fine while on desktop or browser but when i go into more demanding things like games it will freeze after 1 mintue or so. i have 4x4GB-16GB of corsair Vengence 1600mhz mem. I opened aida64 and go to memory it shows:
DIMM-A1: Corsair Vengeance CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9 4 GB DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-17 @ 457 MHz)
DIMM-B1: Corsair Vengeance CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9 4 GB DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-17 @ 457 MHz)
DIMM-C1: Corsair Vengeance CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9 4 GB DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-17 @ 457 MHz)
DIMM-D1: Corsair Vengeance CMZ16GX3M4X1600C9 4 GB DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-17 @ 457 MHz)

I'm not real familiar with memory but does it mean that there currently clocking at only 533mhz? In my BIOS it says that there currently running at 1.48-1.5v which is there voltage rating.

I'm not sure if this is even the problem but everything else seems to be fine. I have everything up to date and temperatures on everything are good so not sure.
Any insight on the problem is greatly appreciated!
Specs:
i7-3930K (ATM stock clocks)

16gb corsair Vengence 1600mhz

Try memtest for memory issue. Also use burn test for gpu.

It might be one or more ram has damaged or faulty. Start computer with one ram only and try to check every ram one by one, for finding faulty ram.

Well I've checked everything thing else out. Processor is recognized and and working at appropriate frequency, voltage and temps. Graphics is up to date and running like usual. I've stress tested the CPU and GPU and they both stood up without out errors or BSODs. All my drivers are up to date as well as BIOS. PSU is drawing the right amount of power. The only thing that i can think of is the memory. I dont get any freezes and stuff when on a browser or desktop applicatios but once i open any game it plays for a minute or so then the system freezes and i have to hard boot it. Can't think of anything else. I've also checked to see i place them in the correct DIMM because this MB has 8 DIMM slots and they were/are in the right spot. Not sure what else to check.

thanks for replying try memtest as suggested and if you get an error with all the RAM sticks in, go through the somewhat tedious process of testing each stick.

though you may want to give your hard drive a look.
