Yea, you should have no problems. I'm not trying to introduce doubt or anything. My statements are just for informational purposes in explaining a bit how your particular memory affects your computer. What you got will work perfectly fine and shouldn't cause any issues. I'm speaking in terms of optimization, if you ever choose to go that route once this issue is fixed.

Yeah, I appreciate your help. My MemTest is like giving me hundreds of errors. This is the most reasonable core of a problem.

Oh, I see my topic is sticked together in 1 again. Thanks mates

Thumbs up for awesome paint-platform job. I was just wondering, what slot I should use when I get my new RAM. Kingston HyperX 2 x 2 GB - KHX8500D2K2 is the ID.

It shouldn't matter, as long as you keep the channels the same...so either the two black slots or the two yellow slots.

Oh yeah, just discovered on ASUS' website, that you'll need to plug them into yellow for better overclock capability.

Actually it's not only Blue Screens of Deaths I had as a problem, but also problems like (I don't know if you ever tried this before), "touching" the front panel USB slots with your USB. Not putting them in there, just touching, and then your computer just freezes and says a weird sound. Sorry for bringing up and old topic of mine, but I think it's worth posting

I mentioned in post #23 that you would be advised to download the manufacturers manual for your mobo. The memory..Kingston HyperX 2 x 2 GB - KHX8500D2K2 is NOT on the manufacturers recommended list....up to you, but maybe you should consult the manual.

I actually spotted the stick. Was the the updated one you had a look at? Also, not every RAM is there, I just take the one that matches and the company is having my reputation. The QVL is a somewhat example of what you can use.

Don't treat the QVL lists as bibles for memory. They don't test every memory chip out there. It's a starting point, but isn't considered a definitive list of what works and what doesn't. If the memory speeds and voltage both are supported by the board, and you are buying a quality brand, you should be fine. From the QVL and motherboard specs, you can find out if you need ECC, how much is supported, how much per channel, etc.

Not be used as an example or correct practice, but I'm not sure I've ever used RAM that was on my motherboard's QVL list.

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
