BSOD from new memory card, BCCode:d1 & BCCode:fc
x64 full retail around 4 year old comp
The memory I use on my PC is:
"Corsair TWIN2X4096-8500C5D Dominator 4GB 2 X 2GB PC2-8500 1066MHz 240-Pin DDR2 CL5 Dual Channel Desktop Memory"
Wanting more memory I decided to to place:
"OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 Platinum 4GB Edition Dual Channel *EOL"
Since they had the same specs for frequency and clock I thought they'll work fine together
But I tend to keep getting BSODs when i run my computer with both of them inside.
Here is the BSOD which has occurred to me.
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Thanks for the help.
Additional information 1: I ran the BSOD Dump & System File Collection app and SystemHealth without the 2nd memory card, since the PC would crash
Additional information 2: when it BSODed, i opened the CPU and the memory cards were very hot, if that helps

Mixing RAM, especially from different brands, isn't exactly the best thing. Plus, why is the OCZ RAM EOL (End of Life)? Typically when they are labeled that it usually means it has been superseded by an identical but superior (and often times more stable) version. It may be just that they're old (they are DDR2) but the aforementioned reasons are also possible. Check to confirm if there are similar or nearly identical versions. It may even be just bad memory you managed to purchase and needs to be replaced.
Have you checked your motherboard to confirm that both sets of RAM are compatible? Does things run fine if you only run with one or the other but not with both?
Memory can handle temps pretty well. If you suspect it may be too hot, then it's often caused by the internal temperature of the case being too hot (this also is displayed in the motherboard's temp as well). Make sure that your case has proper airflow going through it to prevent heat from accumulating.
For additional attempts at fixing this, you can try a BIOS update for your motherboard. Go to the Gigabyte website and download any possible update for your specific motherboard model. Note that it is imperative that your system be stable during the BIOS update, so reduce the amount of RAM in your system to only one set of memory if you know that will stabilize things and then run the update. Lastly, for any memory testing you may use Memtest86+. Sure beats waiting for your system to BSOD.
