Nice to see you again. So they just emailed you the BIOS settings which is needed? Sounds great![/QUOTE]

Yes, they had me send pics of my BIOS setting and my motherboard model, CPU, etc. Then a tech got back with some settings and my errors were gone, maybe Kingston will do that for you.

That's pretty cool. I'll email them today as well

Thanks for reply's, please keep topic alive.

Aight! Gave them an E-mail saying:

Hello Kingston

I'm not sure it is the right place to E-mail you but I have a couple of questions.
I heard that your support is great as well!
I was just wondering if you could send a couple of pictures, showing the correct voltage, clocks and stuff like that - For the RAM:
HyperX DDR2 1066MHz 4GB CL5 DIMM (Kit of 2x2GB)
KHX8500D2K2/4G

I'm a bit afraid to put it on [AUTO] if my motherboard is giving incorrect settings.

Thanks!

Unless I missed a few posts, I don't understand the fear of putting it on AUTO, especially in the beginning to make sure the memory is working well. Once you know it is stable, then you can worry about setting custom options.

Is it even possible to set the clock to [AUTO]? And how if so ^^

Right just set (reset) the BIOS to the DEFAULT options. Then Save and exit the BIOS.
PC will Reboot, go back into the BIOS and check settings.

I rebooted back into the BIOS 3 times before the first loading of the OS. In those 3 reboots the memory voltage changed each time until it got to the manufacturers specified 1.65 Volts. It was originally 1.5 and the old bad RAM was 1.5 volt RAM.

I then booted into the OS, checked Temps and other settings, then went back into the BIOS and started my overclocking.

If you don't plan on overclocking the system there is no reason NOT to use the BIOS defaults, Auto, for all critical settings (CPU speed/voltage, Mem speed/voltage and the like).

It's always possible. In fact, AUTO is usually the motherboard's default. Why wouldn't it be? You are making this process out to be something far more complicated than it really is. Let the motherboard read the info from the chips and decide on the best settings. Test the system out and see if your BSoD's go away. Then, if you really want to push the memory....then you go in and take it off auto.

FredeGail just be cool and let your motherboard see what you have. as Deaconfrost says, use the default BIOS sttings 1st, might be just fine.

It kind of sounds like you need to read up a little bit on overclocking and setting BIOS volts if needed. In most BIOSes you will scroll to the setting, hit enter, then adjust settings if it comes up. However if you have a factory built computer, many BIOS settings will be lock out. You can also contact the manufacturer's support although many of them will not help with custom BIOS adjustments.
Post back and let us know how it goes!

Cheers, I think I will get my RAM on Monday or so.

Btw, I don't know if it was a missing driver: When I suddenly logged on Windows to see how it worked, the screen resolution we're changed, and my 2nd screen were made main-screen. I changed it in the Nvidia Config as well, but still quite weird.

Have you recently reinstalled/upgraded Win7? Go to windows update to see if a driver is needed for nVidia. It worked for me when I upgraded my wife's PC from XP to Win 7 Ult.
A note: when my memtest was showing errors the computer worked fine, but I had only 2-3 errors.

Memtest86 Results Interpretation
I recently ran Memtest86 because I was trying to diagnose some freeze ups which had started randomly and with increasing frequency. I'm assuming this indicates the ram should be replaced, but I'd like another opinion. http://i1339.photobucket.com/albums/o712/trgraney/MemTest_zpsd668d2fa.jpg
