CPUZ is showing it correct, it is running at double the 800 shown in the screenshot so 1600mhz


What voltage is the memory supposed to run at and is it set correctly to that in the bios?

What are detailed specs of that Kingston RAM compared to the detailed specs of Crucial brand RAM for your motherboard using the Crucial.com configurator?

Detailed specs of my kingston RAM is 8GB DDR3 1600 CL9

I notice that all of that Crucial RAM is 1.5 volt, unbuffered, non-ECC.

Is that true of the Kingston RAM?

The memory tab shows it running at rated speed. Show us the cpuz 'SPD" tab.

Here is the screenshot of memtest which I did for 10 hours last night.



it passed 7 tests without any error. If you notice I overclocked my cpu to 3.6 GHz while running it. after memtest, when I booted my computer i started to get BSOD again on windows login screen.

So for time being I loaded default BIOS settings to see if it passes the windows login screen which it did.

After messing with my pc and searching over forums/internet, I figured out since I installed new RAM I started to get BSOD randomly so I reverted back to my old RAM sticks and now my pc works fine. No BSOD at all. So I've returned hyperx for full refund.
