TWIN2X4096-8500C5 BSOD with Win 7 64bit


Recommended Posts

Just bought an upgrade to my CPU. Went from Intel E6600 to a Quad Q9650. Bought the 4gb set of TWIN2X4096-8500C5 to compliment my 2gb set of TWIN2X2048-8500C5.


Got a ******** black to put a clean install of Win7 64bit. During the clean install I ended up getting a BSOD. Tried installing on different HDD. In either install I would get a BSOD either during the install process or even after a successful one. This is very frustrating...BSOD messages varied from




and a couple other messages. I can't remember but it was probably tied to software when the OS was up and running for short amounts of time.


Stuff I've done so far:

1. removed the old 1gb modules and left the 2 new modules in -> BSOD

*then tried reinstall of windows 7 64bit


2. Went to 1 2gb module in a different dimm slot -> BSOD

*then tried reinstall of windows 7 64bit -finally got a clean install in but still crashed on reboots and shutdowns


3. Swapped out dimm slots with as many combinations of the 4 modules i had before I gave up->BSOD


5. Updated bios -> BSOD


6. Ran Memtest86 -> No errors detected on any of the modules


7. Went to BIOS saw that it was on optimal settings of 1.8v 5-5-5-18 and so I changed it to what i read of 2.1v 5-5-5-15 -> BSOD


6. Used my dual boot to use XP thinking my old setup might be stable still-> Just today got a BSOD


i'm fed up now. I don't know what to do. Could it be possible that the initial install of the new modules and the initial wave of fiddling around cause my other modules to go bad? My old modules seemed to be fine up until today when i was trying a couple of more swapping scenarios.


Could it just be that these modules don't work at all with my motherboard+CPU combination???
