So I just bought a new Gaming pc, and I put it together but now I keep having bluescreens. (put it together 2 days ago)
The BSOD codes indicated that the RAM was the problem, so I did a MEMTEST and it said that my RAM has hardware issues.
Now, I tried using just one RAM slot and re-did the test, still it said it had issues. I dit the same with my other RAM stick, also tried using other slots. Still it said that my ram was bad.
Now my question is, is it both RAM sticks that are bad? or is my motherboard broken? Is there a way to be sure wich one it is?
Or is it maby that my RAM isn't compatible with my motherboard?
Also, I was very carefull for ESD when putting my pc together so that shouldn't have caused the problem.
Oh, Im using Corsair vengeance 16GB 1866Mhz Ram, and my motherboard is Gigabyte x79-UD3.
if your running the ram at 1866 try 1333. and run memtest. your mobo might not like 1866.
try the ram in another computer. if it works fine there its not the problem(well technically, its possible that your mobo just doesnt like that ram. but its pretty unlikely.
i would bet its the ram but no way to guarantee it without trying them in another system or known good ram on your motherboard.
So I Tried other RAM on the same motherboard and I still get the bluescreens..
I guess my motherboard is broken only on the RAM slots or is it the Compatibility?
My RAM is Corsair CMZ16GX3M2A1866C9
My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3
