Hey guys, a few days ago my G.skill Ripjaws ddr3 ram arrived for my Gigabyte G41MT-S2PT motherboard.

Everything was working fine for about 10 minutes then i got a BSOD - Bad_pool_header

Since then every few hours i get one, I have had, system_service_exception, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

All of these when i googled them said it was either a hardware problem or a driver issue, But page_fault_in_nonpaged_area said it was to do with ram.

Now this ram is a few days old so its fine right? But then i went on to the products on the G.skill site and saw this

No G41 support

Could this be what is causing the problem, it would be great if someone could help, Thanks

Yeah, it looks like the ram you have does not support your chipset.

So is it likely that is what is causing the blue screens

Yeah most likely, but the thing I don't get is, if it wasn't compatible with your chipset, I don't know how it pasts the post screen.

But from what I have read about your motherboard and your ram, your chipset does not support it.

Yh i was thinking that to, Also could there be a problem with my cpu?

The temps are dodgy, it says its at 11c and also it wont overclock at all, iv had it at 3.4 before fine but now it wont even go to 2.8

When did this all start to happen ?

And not too sure if it is your CPU, you will need to go more in depth with the problem.
I have never come across a problem with a CPU unless they have been cooked while overclocking or not been built into the case properly.

It may be a motherboard problem.

The motherboard is brand new, only got it about a week ago, Basicilly about a month ago a bad psu broke my mobo, so i ordered the new one and some new ram and not its not working

Put your old ram in and see how that works.

If that works, then we know it's a RAM problem, but if that doesn't, its more than the ram.

Sadly cant do that, With this new mobo iv switched from DRR2 to DDR3

Just did a bit more research on the problem and came up with nothing.
I would say that the ram is not compatible with your motherboard, because the ram is compatible with the latest Intel/AMD processors/sockets.

Best bet is to next time always look if your ram is compatible with the motherboard.
