Windows 7: BSOD happening ramdomly Error Code 50

What would you recommend for RAM, I've had two pairs of Corsair RAM chips go bad in the last six months. It just seems like they don't make them as good as they use to.

Any specific brand that you prefer? My Motherboard can support above 1600, the ones that I bought were 1866. I never set them to that because of all the issues I've had.

You should call Corsair and let them know what issues you have had and see what they recommend. Also, just because your motherboard supports above 1600 does not mean the CPU will. Your CPU has in its specs: DDR3-1333/1600

Intel® Core™ i7-3770K Processor

I would recommend getting 1333 or 1600 RAM and staying away from RAM that can run at 1866. Having to run the RAM at a lower frequency than it was intended may cause problems.

Ok I will stay within the 1600 bracket.

I am planning on RMA'ing the Corsair sticks and just selling the ones I get off. I really don't want another messed up pair. I've already been burned twice by them.

All the companies pretty much sell the same RAM, some just sell it for less. It's up to you whether you want to avoid Corsair, though. You could go with Crucial; that's what I put in my systems because they have a nice compatibility check online.

I am thinking about getting these.


Micro Center - Crucial 8GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800) CL9 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit (Two 4GB Memory Modules) 649528755988

Do you think it would be safe to buy two sets to get 16 GB's of RAM? Or should I just stick one one set?

Unless you plan on doing some video editing, 8 GB is plenty. I have 6 GB in my video editing system, and I have never had any trouble with it, so even then, 16 would probably be overkill.
