Possible Problem with Dominator TWIN2X2048-8500C5D

Hey guys

 

I'm looking for some help with my memory. I recently built a new system. I have been wondering if maybe my memory is bad for a while now. I have seen a lot of reviews on newegg of people stating that they got bad sticks of this memory.

 

My system runs and boots, temperatures are low. When I use CPU-Z, I get strange changes in my memory info. Here is an example:

 

Look at part number here

This is not the only time this has shown up, but the text was different and latencies were different on one stick (I believe is was slot #3 last time as well)

 

I get crashes when playing games a lot (Sometimes just the game crashes and sometimes its a bluescreen), and I really can't figure it out. My system is virus free and I keep it updated.

 

I appreciated any help. Thanks.
