BSOD with set of 4 RAM??? But fine otherwise.

I have 4x4gb corsair vengeance on a ASUS P8z77 v pro mobo.. I have had the setup working for a while, until one day I started getting BSODs.

I started investigating the memory

I have tested each RAM separately on memtest86. All pass the test on their own. (1 Pass)
Two will also work together fine. (no errors)
However when they are all together it's unstable and BSOD comes back. Including memtest errors.

To check the slots I ran two test, each with two RAM in alternative slots.

From what I understand all drivers are up to date, I have reset the CMOS and restored default bios settings. But still have the same problem.

Recently I have upgraded my BIOS and overclocked. However I used ASUS software to do it from the internet.
My computer also rarely boots up first time with a set of 4. It will get half way start again then boot up.

I'm happy to supply information you ask for : )

    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.

  2. You will want to run a memtest of each individual stick in each individual slot, so a total of 16 tests. what this will do is eliminate the possibility of it being a stick and slot combination. If all comes clear, more than likely its a motherboard issue causing the problem.
