I think the best method to determine whether your new RAM is incompatible or is bad would be to run Windows with one stick at a time of the new RAM. Check each module in each slot. If a module works in one slot, then test the other slots to determine if you have a bad slot. If a module does not work in any slots, it is probably bad.

If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Windows 7 Ult x64 - SP1/ Windows 8 Pro x64

This is from the G. Skill site for Ripjaws F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM
Specification: Designed For 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors
The only compatible motherboards it lists are Intel.

Sometimes Intel RAM will run on an AMD system but usually not.
Recommend to return the RAM for some that is specifically designed for an AMD system.

If you want to try and adjust the settings, it might run stable, but may give you problems.

Did you run memtest86+, on your new 2X4GB RAM, overnight as you mentioned previously?
You need to run a minimum of 7 full passes, overnight is best, if you get any errors you can stop the test.

Let us know what you want to do.

How are things currently going? Did you run the Memtest86+ overnight and for 7 full passes (or more) as suggested by Dave?

BSOD whilst playing XCOM 2 (Win 10)
Hello all, Started getting random BSOD during XCOM 2, been absolutely fine up until now. No other BSODs during other activities. From looking at BlueScreenViewer it points to both cng.sys and ntsokernel.exe. The actual BSOD is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x0000000a. Thanks, Jamie

Title pretty much tells you the issue, and hopefully the file requested will explain what is wrong. I'll just add I've ran memtest for 8 hours with no errors. So my RAM is safe. Hope you can help, I can't take it anymore
