That is a lot of errors.

Run the next memtest86+ with the next RAM stick, we'll call it stick #2, in a different motherboard RAM slot. Label the RAM sticks so they can all be tested.

Keep track of the RAM sticks, number them, and RAM slots, you can count the slots as #1 being closest to the CPU.

If you get any errors, let it run for a couple more minutes to see if it is a couple of errors or a lot, then you can stop the test.

Any errors, even one, when running memtest86+ is too many.

We will need your system specs in order to continue.
In the lower left corner of any of your posts, click the 'My System Specs' and fill in the information.

An OEM computer has very limited BIOS adjustment capabilities.
Depending on your specs, we can try a few things.

Putting a tiny piece of tape with number on the RAM sticks, wouldt damage them, right?

Computer spec posted, even though some of it aint done ( I cant remember those ).

Well.. did memtest on my 2. ram stick. 0 errors after 6passes

placed ram stick 1 in the 3 other ram slots around the 2. one. got same amount of errors after 1pass.

Since i only got 1 ram stick (2gb), should i overclock it? cuz my computer is kinda slow now.. :L

You can put tape on the card, just not on the modules (small squares on the card).

That is definitely a bad RAM card.
What brand is it?
Some RAM companies have life time warranties and will replace the bad card. Others have limited warranties and if you are still in the time frame you can get it replaced.
Something to check out, and remember when you buy RAM.

With one RAM card installed you will be in single channel mode, versus dual channel with two RAM cards, this will give you half the speed.
Overclocking a single RAM card will not give you a noticeable performance increase.

Best thing to do is try to return the bad card for replacement or buy a new set of RAM.
If you buy a new set, make sure they have a good return/replacement policy, get RAM optimized for your AMD motherboard. If it doesn't say it's for AMD motherboard then don't get it. Intel RAM and even so called universal RAM has a bad record running on AMD motherboards.

The next common mistake made is buying one other RAM card to replace the bad one, even if you get the same brand and same specs there is a good chance that it will not work. Ram can be very difficult to match.


Let us know if you have any more BSoDs.

Thanks, ill remember that with the Dual channel/single channel.

Okay, so i've havent had any errors in like.. 1day of nonstop computer usage, and my wow errors are completely gone.

I want to thanks everyone who helped me

My RAM cards are on the way to my computer manufacture, they offered me a box of "Kingston DDR3 HyperX T1 1600MHz 3x 2GB KIT" as an replacement, anyone knows if that's Optimized or something?

I think I may have spotted a problem but I'll let dave have a look,he's a bit more up to speed than me in this area.

The problem I see
Quote:
Gigabyte Site
  1. 4 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 16 GB of system memory (Note 1)
  2. Dual channel memory architecture
  3. Support for DDR3 2000(OC)/1333/1066 MHz memory modules

Kingston Site

KHX1600C9D3T1K3/6GXDDR3-1600, Non-ECC, Unbuffered DIMM, Intel X.M.P6GB Kit
(3 - 2GB)9-9-9-271.65V
I could be completely wrong and the board could be able to run it,see what dave says

Good news, hope it stays stable for you.

I would definitely not get that RAM kit.
The 3x2GB kits are for Intel x58 motherboards, these have six RAM slots and are triple channel boards.
There are thousands of posts on the internet having trouble getting these to work on a AMD board.

Tell them you want 2x2GB kit specifically made for AMD motherboard.

From the Kingston website.

Quote:
Tri-channel HyperX T1 features:
The 1.65V operating voltage enables stable overclocking to make Intel Core-i7 processors run faster with a longer lifecycle.
A Memory Kit specifically optimized for Intel Core-i7 series processors.
These are made for Intel x58 boards, not for AMD.

Form the same site.
Quote:
Dual channel HyperX T1 DDR3 features:
Designed specifically for mainstream DDR3 PC platforms (Intel P45 Chipset, AMD Phenom II processors etc.).


Look for 2x2GB kits, any others that are 3x2gb or 6x2GB are for triple channel Intel boards.

The company you mentioned has probably had a lot of these kits returned for the reasons mentioned above and are trying to unload them on you, don't let them do it, it will be a lot of trouble.

The Kingston site lists 1600MHz speed RAM as the lowest available.
There is no need to get any higher RAM speed as there is a known issue with AMD integrated CPU memory controllers having problems running RAM at any speed above 1333MHz.

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING AMD AM3 CPU's and RAM SPEEDS

When you get the new RAM, be sure to set the frequency at 1333MHz.

Thanks for letting me know dave p:
Replied to them and they said i could choose whatever i want at the same cost, ill look on that website

EDIT;
Checked the webshop i got my computer from and found this "Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600MHz 4GB CL8
Kit w/2x 2GB XMS3 modules, CL8-8-8-24, 1.5V, for AMD Phenom II, 240pin" That would not work, would it :l?

Yes that RAM will work, you just need to set the RAM frequency to 1333MHz.

Ram will work just fine when under clocked, this usually means lower voltage so it also runs cooler.
