Windows 7: Many different BSOD's when gaming or watching videos

You need to get RAM that runs at 1.50v, at the frequency you want.
1.65v RAM is not good according to the Intel specification, that voltage can damage the CPU.

The Corsair Vengeance Blue CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10B will work with your system.

Get the part numbers from the RAM site tool, then check if NCIX has them in stock.

Sometimes Intel RAM will have problems with certain motherboards, best to check the supplier site.
Make sure the RAM heat spreader is not too tall to fit next to the CPU cooler.

I was checkin back here quite a few times already before I realized I actually didn't send my post...

But I checked out the vengeance blue RAM on the website and it said that it's good for all mobos and for AMD and Intel... So not sure if I should still avoid it or not. Also, I looked up the RAM I currently have and see people complaining about BSODs and compatibility issues... so it figures

I'm leaning towards the vengeance blue RAM still, I'm hoping to pick it up relatively soon, thoughts?

It's getting harder to find RAM for just Intel or AMD, most are saying it's good for both. This is usually more of a problem for AMD systems than for Intel.

I've been using Corsair RAM for years with no problems, Vengeance RAM now.
It's a good choice and they have great support and guarantee.

BSOD and freezing when gaming or watching videos

With this GPU it would blue screen every 3 days instead of every day. I put in a better GPU (HD6570) and it started happening every day. Reformatted and upgraded...
