Profile1 should give you the correct settings for your ram which obviously should be 1600MHz/9-9-9-24 @1.5V.
In addition to what Paul said, which is an excellent suggestion, and seems to be right out of your rmotherboard manual, you also need to check that the dims (RAM) are installed in the correct slots.

And BTW your memory is compatible with that board. You either have bad RAM, or it may not be configured correctly.

If the above does not help your crash problem I would load "optimized defaults" in bios, save and exit and see what you get. That mem should run at 1366 with out issue.

Hi again,
I have just done the following as your advice.
I checked the RAM and they are in DDR1 and DDR2 , checked they we secure- which they are ! (with two spare slots)
I went to MIT Like Paul suggested and set to Profile 1 - the issue seems to have gotten worse and I cant get windows past my password screen

@Golden- I cant get the machine on long enough to download and run the program you suggested

I have taken a pic via my iphone to try to let you guys see what Im getting.
One pic of the Bois current status settings. I can type it al out if you cant see the pic.
One pic of the BSOD - with the code 0x00000f4.

The machine will not stay on now past the windows log in screen I refuse to beleive its bad RAM as I said previously the MB, Processor I bought in december, the Ram a few days ago and the power pack in November !! Plus I had issues with the old RAM
BTW I am using the onboard graphics - I know im making it more complicated - sorry
Im convinced its something I am doing wrong

Thanks for taking a look
Im about to go and cry

Could it be that the memories are running in single mode and not dual channel mode? the memories should sit in first slot then you skip 1 slot and then put the second memory in the third slot.And if your memory is running 1333 or 1600 wont really matter as you wont really notice any real time difference so what they are running at right now is not important, and if your DRAM voltage is 1.5v your timings are at 9,9,9,24 and the problem is still there it could perhaps be an ESD damage?

Andreas , Yes I have skipped slots like you describe and I can see from the Bois they are running in duel channel mode .
What does ESD damage mean ? If you mean static damage ? I have been very careful about static and allway wear the wrist band if I ever open the case :P

Hi Beachy,

First, I know you don't want to believe it's the RAM modules are bad seeing how you just got them, but that really might be a possibility. The other being a bad RAM slot.

Anyway seeing how you posted the MIT screen, can you post the Advanced Memory screen?

Also, just to be sure, check your SATA connections to make sure they're secured.

And BTW when you say slots 1&2 you mean alternating, not back to back right? Meaning RAM, space, RAM?

Thanks.

ESD in static damage yes, but if you used a wrist band that should be out of the equation, and like the post above have you checked so every other cable is plugged in fully, did you hear a clicking sound when you installed the ram so they sit correct, they could also be bad ram's from the start like mentioned in above post

The only thing not shown in your screenshot is the ram voltage. Can you confirm it is at 1.5v in the bios?
