Hi guys, so I recently put together my first computer. Everything was running smoothly until I started playing a couple different games. After about a half hour of playing my system would crash and give me a Blue Screen, Stop code 050 (which after research appears to be RAM related?) So I pulled one of the sticks of ram and now it runs just fine. Any ideas? I have included specs below.
i have the exact same RAM as you and experiencing somewhat similar issues... i can't get past post in the dual channel slots (2+4, although i contacted MSI about the problem and they say it may be a miss-print, it should be 1+3) so i have to run them in sockets 1+2 which is single channel. you should try this to get the full 8GB until you RMA.
"If each stick passes by itself Richard, but when used together causes BSOD, there is an issue unrelated to the memory Richard. First update the BIOS as the early BIOS versions of the Z77 had some memory compatibility issues. Then test each stick in each DIMM slot. If all the DIMMs pass like it did with the module, then its most likely an issue with the memory controller in your CPU (which would make sense since any additional load beyond 1 stick causes issues). Let me know if this helps. "
Seems to make sense to me, so will return processor for replacement.
