Windows 7: BSOD when installing new ram

Should I run Memtest86+ with all 4 sticks installed? If that is the case, I will do it tonight and let it run overnight.

I would, if there are any failures you'll then need to start pinpointing which stick/slot is at fault.

Good catch Boozad, I had assumed a proper memtest was performed.

By the way, changing timings from 10 to, say, 9 is not loosening them :) You are actually overclocking the RAMs that way (called tightening), increasing the likelihood of problems.

Just made a suggestion there, I would need help myself if I ever had a BSOD!

Just to be certain please have the settings like this and reboot and check again to make sure the setting stay set.

Almost 9 hours of Memtest86+ and no errors.
What is next?

Install one stick of RAM in each of these slots then test please.

No, don't run MemTest just use your system as normal.
