Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1600 Crashing Windows 7

Here is my build:
Windows 7 64-bit
Asus P7P55 Motherboard
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge
Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX

I just bought a new stick of RAM, Vengeance Series 8GB DDR3-1600, before I had 3x1gb Cosair DDR-1333. I removed the old RAM sticks and put the new one in, when started, windows gives me a blue screen and gave me the error message "*** STOP: 0x000000e1" So I tried reseating the RAM stick and starting the computer again, same error message. I checked the BIOS and it was reading that I had 8gb of RAM installed. I then took my old hard drive that ran Windows XP and booted off of it. It worked flawlessly. Any idea of what the problem is?

Did you reset BIOS/CMOS after installing the ram?

In that case I suggest starting up from your win7 disk and select the repair function first then there is this

Just looking back at your specs there, how did you manage to put a 2500K in a lga 1156 board?

hmm, oh, opps, that was I put it in one of my other builds, if that is not it then I don't remember what I put into it. All I remember is that it is an i5 with 3.2 GHz.

Sorry I get mixed up sometimes between my different builds.
