|I'm using a GigaByte GA-X58A-UD3R Intel X58 Chipset SLI/CrossFireX Ultra Durable™3 |
Triple-Channel DDR3/1600 ATX Mainboard which allows for 6 RAM cards.
Originally I had
3x2GB ADATA Gaming Series cards (240-pin)
I then bought
3x2GB Corsair XMS3 (240-pin)
When I added the 3 new ram cards, it worked fine at first, after like 5 minutes I got a blue screen. I rebooted and got another blue screen as soon as windows loaded. After that the computer would beat constantly really fast and simply not boot.
I took out the 3 new ram cards and it worked fine again. Then I took out the old ram cards and put the 3 new ones only and it worked fine as well.
Why does it work with 3 cards (regardless of which of the 2 sets) but not with all 6?
