    Want to replace RAM modules


    I'm having BSOD issues for some time now and want to replace my existing RAM modules - RAM summary given in attachment down below. 8GB will do fine. Can you help me find the best replacement(s?) ? 4x2 or 1 8GB and which one(s). I will buy from from this site:-
    DDR3 Memory

    You now appear to have 2 sticks of Corsair PC3-10600 (1333); DDR 3, 4 gb per stick; 1.5 volts; unbuffered. Should be 240 pin.

    I've never heard of some of those brands at the link you supplied.

    I downloaded the qualified memory list for you motherboard from here:

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 4.1)

    Your board supports dual channel DDR3.

    Every stick on the list is 8 GB. No 4 GB sticks are listed.

    Normally, your best move would be to get two 4 GB sticks and run them in dual channel mode--but no 4 GB sticks are on the list.

    So, you can get a single 8 GB stick that is on the list or take a small chance and get two 4 GB sticks that are not on the list. If you get a single 8 GB stick, it will run in single channel and you will suffer a very small performance hit.

    Which to do is kinda your choice.

    Using strictly those from the vendor you linked:

    http://mdcomputers.in/products/memor...1a1600c11.html

    above is a single 4 gb stick of CORSAIR RAM VALUE 4GB DDR3 1600FSB CMV4GX3M1A1600C11; it's 1.5 volts.

    I'd be pretty sure 2 of these would work to give you 8 GB total in dual channel mode.

    above is a single 8 gb stick of CORSAIR RAM VALUE 8GB DDR3 1600FSB CMV8GX3M1A1600C11


    I don't think either of those exact model numbers are on the qualified list.

    You can download the qualified list yourself and look to see if some of the other Corsair or GSkill or Crucial modules at your link are on the list.

    There is some chance that modules not on list won't work, but the list is fairly brief and you may not be able to find an exact match at your vendor.

    Following up on ignatzatsonic's excellent advice, I would highly recommend you purchase the sticks from the same manufacturer that your presently working sticks are from. Experience of mine and others have proven: just because Y and Z says so, does not automatically mean Y and Z are exactly the same internal architecture as X - the manufacturer of the present sticks.

    Okay. yes, none of the RAM on the list are on GIGABYTE's list. If I want to try those below - according to my Mobo's specs (going by their specs on site, which may not count for anything as you've pointed out) do you think it's a calculated risk?

    AVEXIR DESKTOP RAM CORE SERIES €“ 4GB DDR3 1600MHZ (AVD3U16001104G-1CW) BLUE

    Buy G.SKILL DESKTOP RAM AEGIS 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHZ (F3-1600C11S-4GIS) - Best Price in India, Kolkata - Lowest Price in Online on mdcomputers.in

    or from another local vendor: https://www.vedantcomputers.com/ram/...r=52%2C53%2C67

    I'll probably buy the modules you've suggested...even then just want to know, you know?

    Thank you so much for helping the noob. Much appreciate it.

    Before you buy new memory, unplug the cable form the power supply, wait 1/2 minute to discharge capacitors, remove memories and clean (memory and slot) with a contact cleaner. Set memory performance to normal, not turbo or alike. From the Ram log, the memories has a little timing difference that can cause problems on dual channel. You can try to manual increase the times for stability. If you're going to buy new memory, I would buy 2x4G (for dual channel) DDR2 1600 (PC12800), I use GSkill and like it.

    I have no hardware knowledge about RAM, I was simply passing on what an onsite tech told me some years ago. :)

    Ok. Thanks! By the way, Maximum Supported Memory Clock: 933.3 MHz and Current Memory Clock: 937.4 MHz differs on these two. I didn't overclock or anything...at all , my motherboard automatically did that. Is this stable/normal?
