I've had my computer for about 3 years with G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 and everything has been fine. I just purchased another set of identical memory (2 x 2GB) and now I get BSOD randomly. Take out the new memory and everything is okay again.
Motherboard should handle up to 16GB. Haven't changed anything in my BIOS, no overclocking. I know just enough to put this system together.
I've looked through a lot of similar issues in the forums and have come up empty so far. Any ideas? Any more information I can provide?
Specs with the original 4GB:

Did you have a check to see if the voltage of the new memory sticks match the voltage of the old set of memory sticks, do the ram timings match?
Maybe a small voltage increase may sort the problem out.
Make sure if it is standard memory it is set to that in the bios, and not EEC mode.
Check to see if you have an option to run the memory in ganged or un ganged mode.
Make sure it is ganged if the case.
About the best I can guess is also a small memory voltage bump. I know i needed one for 4 sticks on my P35 board(that was DDR2, but you get the point). So lets say it is rated for 1.50 try 1.55 or 1.60.
Another option may be to drop the speed to 1333. I do not think you are loosing anything on that cpu.
