When you installed the RAM . Did you install them on the two blacks slots ? That enables the dual channel mode . If you want to test the rest remove the second memory stick on the second black slot ( furthest from the PC )

I did install them on the two black slots. I'm currently only running one RAM stick atm and I have yet to crash my system... could it potentially be that the ram was just set up wrong on my Mobo?

When you purchased the memory did it come together in a kit or separate ? Test each ram on every slot . If one memory stick fails replace both sticks .

Or you just got bad ram.
Theres really no ''wrong'' way to set up ram. You just plug it and you are good to go. It can either be that the RAM lane is malfunctioning or that the stick itself is bad.

So if I am putting all this together correctly, my "dump" files are indicating that there is a problem with my RAM?

Your OP screen shows that its a memory issue . Run a memory test using memtest86+

Tip   Tip
If you get any ERRORS stop the test and test each RAM stick on all 4 slots

Sorry for the late response, but I have been out of town for the past two days. I had my roomate run the test last night and when I returned home this evening(20 hrs later) here was what I was reading... I have no idea what I'm looking for.

You're looking at bad RAM . Now you have to see which ram or slot is bad . Test each ram separately on each slot .

In the tutorial of the Memtest take a look at Part 3 .

Well gosh darnit, I just found the culprit. That one stick of ram has been erroring me up this entire time! My next question is was it something I did to destroy this ram, or was it a lemon since it was shipped to me? Like i mentioned previously, I had been having crashing issues since day 1... but this could of resulting in me damaging it upon install I suppose?

Now its time to contact the retailer and see what I can get refunded.

How old is the ram ? If its been more than 30 days call the manufacture . Open an RMA and replace both sticks . That's how dual channel works . One ram replace both .
