When you test using memtest and they all work individually, set your Bios to 1600 for the ram and test each stick again but this time trying to load into windows.... until you find the one that won't run. That is how I isolated the faulty ram module I had. I too have the same ram and and 2 kits of it and for me they ran great for a month until I also got a blue screen. Beginning to think this ram is rubbish.

This is sort of correct. To test with memetest load set up defaults first(important) then load the XMP profile 1 and then test.each stivk in the first slot. let each stick run for at lest 4 passes or until you get an error.

 

If you gfet more than one stick that shows errors then test other slots.

Okay, just a point to note. Each stick is 1333, but with XMP will clock to 1600. And if you look at CPU-Z each slot shows SPD Ext XMP

 

So it is running at the speed and settings in XMP Column = 800 Mhz and because it is Dual Channel Mode = 1600 Mhz (2 X 800 Mhz)

 

CPU-Z reads from the RAM, and notes the Bios Speed Profile (XMP in this case)

 

You second tab (last picture) shows the channels = Dual

 

 

Your memory is at 1600 Mhz.
