Exclamation TR3X6G1600C8D Freezes and Sound Loop During Gameplay

Hi, I have recently purchased some corsair TR3X6G1600C8D (3 x 2gb) for my new computer. (Everything is brand new). I have no problems playing Grand Theft Auto 4, but whenever I play cod 4 or cod 5 the game freezes and goes into a sound loop. I don't want to blame corsair directly because maybe I am doing something wrong with my ram. Or it could be totally unrelated to ram. But all the forums I have read say it is ram related. So here I am. I have reset my bios to the default. Ran memtest and passed it. So now I am stumped. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

is the fan on your vid card good? i would try lowering the quality settings temporarily in COD like disable shadows and set others to medium quality and see if it still locks up.
also check for drivers like the cuda ones.
newer driver found here
but click on the cuda link. dam good drivers. i do F@H on my GPUs and play games at highest settings with little or no stutter. so i need the cuda's.

give it a whirl?
Thinking about combining 2 or more sets of ram?? even the same part# is not suggested, recommended or supported.

System Specs as of 6/17/10

Default Drivers

I think I have already downloaded those drivers. I will download them again just for kicks. I have just read that this could be a cause of my soundcard (onboard) and my graphics card having some sort of issue. It said maybe lowering my sound quality would help. Also I have tested my temp and my gpu doesn't reach over 85 in crysis (Which I can run pretty much at max level with no issues). I am starting to think that maybe this could be only while I am playing online. Is that a possibility?
