Memory Management BSOD

Okay, so recently I built a new system

Motherboard: Asus m5a97 le r 2.0
processor: AMD phenom II x4 965 be
RAM: Patriot Viper 3 1600 mhz 2x8gb

Ever since day 1, I've been getting random BSODs, whether downloading something, or playing a game, or surfing the web
All these BSODs are code 1a (memory management)

Now I noticed, not only is my RAM not on the QVL, but all the RAM that is on the QVL for my motherboard at 1600mhz and 16gb is 4x4, and there is no single 8gb stick of ram on the QVL in that section.

So... what do you guys think the problem is? Drivers (I really don't think so..), RAM, or MOBO

Also, I ram memest, but stopped because there were errors for both sticks within 30 minutes..

Its probably RAM isn't it...

I just need a confirmation
16gb on sale was too tempting ;_____;

  1. Best answer
    The RAM test combined with the memory management errors confirms that the RAM modules are bad.
  2. Thanks for the reply Phil!
    however, is there any chance it could be the ram controller on my cpu?
