    well i can tell you that if your running 3/4gb of ram your get the blue screen of death, i was running 2gb ram and windows 7 run fine and today i put in another gig and blue screened every time, rebooted in to xp and everythink was fine so i know its not the new ram, took out a older ram stick 1gb and it booted win7 fine again....


    Well it's not because of too much RAM, as I run 8GB of RAM with Windows 7 with no problems.

    then that can only lead to somethink very odd... maybe sound drivers as the last thing i saw was win7 doing a update for the sound driver but was the same sound driver it did before i put the 3gb in

    I've done both, here's proof (from my old system) of the 32-bit; I can't get one from the 64-bit right now. There are a lot of people running more than 8GB also.

    You might just have some bad RAM. I 'm dual booting 7 64 bit with Vista 32 bit and I'm running it with 8GB of memory. Like Bare Foot Kid says, some are using 7 with 12GB of memory.

    ok after hours and hours of testing and messing about i foundout why i was getting the bluescreen of death nothing to do with the mem stick as people said "thanks for the headsup" so i moved on to a few other things and like i said before the last thing i remember seing was a update from ms for my sound card so after the 3rd install..lol i blocked the update for my soundblast 5.1 live pro and when with the onboard and here ya go back on win7 working fine and running great,

    thanks once again to them who pointed in me the right way

    i think any overclocking with any windows os should be handled carefully because no matter what you do your pushing the whole computer to certain limits regardless of ram, did you benchmark your configuration before you overclocked, its a quick rule of thumb that might tell you alot more than you bargained for, i had the same problem and after i reset everything i benchmarked and set my ram usage accordingly, system starting working better and is a little faster now too
