Default RAM overheating

Helle ppl.

Recently my RAM has been overheating and shutting down my computer my RAM being this:

Corsair XMS3 3 x 2GB (TR3X6G1333C9 Core i7)

The Website being the place of purchase, What I've done now is to turn down the Mhz to the lowest possible setting being 840Mhz to try and see if it will stop over heating.

Another problem i have had since i bought these 3 stick is that only 1 of the sticks show up in Loading screen before booting Windows. So i only have 2GB to work with but 6gb plugged in at the same time my system only works with all 3 plugged in.

If any one has a sollution to my problem I'd Apriciate an answer a quick as possible as my Summer Holidays are comming up and its gonna be on most of the time. So if you have any thoughts what so ever on the subject please PM og reply on the thread.

More than likely it is the MB or CPU that may be causing this, I would try and re-seat the CPU and check the pins in the CPU socket to be sure. However, Let's get the modules replaced. Please follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part! Or Tech Support Express” and we will be happy to replace them, please note that you are posting from the forum!
