Windows 7: Multiple BSODs on boot, Faulty RAM?

Did you test each RAM stick individually, or did you test all the RAM sticks at the same time?

Have you phoned the manufacturer or whoever you brought the RAM and explained how you have found errors with the sticks using MemTest86+?

I tested each individually, and no i havent talked to corsair but the rma's are supposed to go through newegg anway. I just wanted to make sure i had the right culprit before i started sending stuff back. Do you think its safe to just send the ram back then?

Was it just one that was bad or both? Also on a personal note, from someone who used to swear by Corsair products, I have noticed over the last 3-4 years they have really let themselves go. I now mainly buy G-Skill, it is cheap and works really well.

Have you checked the connector pins on your RAM to see if they are dirty or scratched, and make sure the pin connectors on the motherboard are straight.

I did that, im still wondering if these symptoms could be an error with another component? If not i'll just go ahead and get new RAM

Could you please upload all the helpful files using the above tutorial.

May not reply until tomorrow morning due to different time zones

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

MemTest86+ will help test the RAM modules and the DIMM slots on the motherboard; test each individual stick of RAM (run for 7 passes), if an error(s) are found then retest the same module in a different DIMM slot, if errors are found in every slot then you have a bad RAM module, however if no errors are found with the RAM module in a different motherboard slot, then you have a bad motherboard DIMM slot.
If you post the information from your system dump, we might be able to help you isolate what is causing the problem.

Have you run the test with each RAM stick individually, sometimes if slot one is bad, it will show slot two as bad when it isn't. If you find one of them is good, you can try to boot into windows only using half your RAM.
