Problem with Asus P5Q3 - DDR3 1600 Ram

Hello,
I was looking for answer at the internet for my problem but after hours and days of searching got frustrated. I would love get some help from you.

So I have Asus P5Q3 with Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400 and decided to upgrade to 2x4gb with 1600mhz of ram. The web states that 1600 frequency is available but just at orange slots. (*DDR3 1600MHz or above DIMMs work only on the Orange slots for one DIMM per channel.) So Ive done that but I get BSOD`ed while playing games.

I have updated to latest BIOS version. Im using Windows 7 Professional 64bit





So, could someone look at my pc specs and say, what is wrong and what should I do?

Hi, Try manually setting in BIOS the JEDEC #4 values (CAS to 9 instead of 7). If still the same, try the JEDEC #3 values.

Yes. If still errors, try lowering the DRAM Freq to JEDEC #3

Im very sorry for stupid questions but I cant really find how to change JEDEC, I just found Timings.

I mean to use the values in CPU-Z JEDEC #3 for adjusting the settings in BIOS (frequency and timings).
If 1200 not available, lower to 1066.
