G.SKILL [RipjawsZ] Quad Channel Kit 16GB Bluescreen

Hey I have this memory.
G.SKILL [RipjawsZ] Quad Channel Kit 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3-2400 PC3 19200 CL 11-11-11-31-2N 1.65V XMP Ready Non-ECC (F3-19200CL11Q-16GBZHD)

The problem is that my motherboard wont detect this memory as PC 1200 DDR3 2400Mhz.
When I run CPU-Z the memory speed is 1600Mhz and it displays the memory as PC3-12800.

If I set the timings and speed manually in BIOS it gives me a randomly bluescreen and also fails during Windows Memory Test.

These are my specs:

Intel® Core i7-3770K Processor

Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 GHz 3GB GDDR5

ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE, Socket-1155

Corsair AX 1200W PSU

Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 240GB 2.5"

G.SKILL [RipjawsZ] Quad Channel Kit 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3-2400 PC3 19200 CL 11-11-11-31-2N 1.65V XMP Ready Non-ECC (F3-19200CL11Q-16GBZHD)


I checked many times to see if my motherboard supported this memory and according to ASUS it should.


Any idea why I got this problem?

Thanks in advance

Oh, damn I had no idea about this. That sucks.
I already have my CPU overclocked to 4.5Ghz, what can I do to get this to work?

Should I return this memory, or just keep it? Will it make my system unstable?

Do a post in the overclocking forum.

Incorrect, the cpu does support it as well as the mobo. Cpu speed and ram speed are separate. You do not have to oc the cpu to oc the ram. When you set the timings and speed, did you also raise the voltage? You could also try loading the xmp.

Thanks for answering. I now tried a few things.
1. I set the timings and voltage manually and ran memory diagnostic.
This also resulted in memory fault.

2. I enabled XMP and set it to Profile 1, the same error came in Memory Diagnostic.

3. I enabled XMP and set it to Profile 2, then I got no errors during Memory Diagnostic.

So it might work with XMP and profile 2?
Why is this? Why do I have to manually set things in Bios and enable XMP, shouldnt Bios Automatically do all this?

Everything defaults to stock speeds, you have to overclock, or at least tell it to. Xmp overrides any ram settings you changed manually. Xmp changes all ram settings so you don't have to manually, it's a nice feature. What speed is profile 2? The different profiles should be different settings.

Well after I thought everything was fine I yet again got a bluescreen and this time it is.

I installed CPUID Hardware Monitor and it seems like the core temps easily goes upto 100 degress celsius.
Could this be the problem that causes all of this? Can I trust CPUID Hardware Monitor ? I might have to get a new cooling system for the cpu immediately?

Wait so you oced your cpu to 4.5 and never checked temps?
November 1, 2012 5:34:14 AM

I did check the temps, and they were fine. But they arent anymore. I ordered a new cooling fan and thermal compound today. I hope that can solve the problems.

What were you using to check temps before hwmon? And what were you using to stress test?
November 2, 2012 5:32:16 PM

I used Asus AI Suite at first, and Prime95 for stress testing.
I mounted my H80 today, and when I run Prime95 at full load the temp are around 89-98c.
The CPU is at 4.5Ghz at 1.3V.
