Kyuss9 Posted December 1, 2013 Share Posted December 1, 2013 I've been trying to do a memory upgrade from my current 2x2GB Corsair Dominator Kit (CMP4GX3M2A1600C8 1600MHz 1.65v ver3.1) to a 2x4GB kit, but without any luck since Windows 8.1 freezes on start up. I first tried with a Vengeance kit (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R 1600Mhz CL9 1.5v) and following Corsair's phone support exchanged it for a XMS3 (CMX8GX3M2A1600C9 1600Mhz CL9 1.65v ver.3.24), which is the one I'm trying to put to work now. The results are the same: The BIOS boots fine, identifies the memory without problem but Windows still freezes at startup and Memtest freezes on test 2. This happens even with only one DIMM inserted, and regardless of using Default/Auto or XMP settings... Putting the old memory in, everything works just fine. I would really appreciate any help you could give. Thank you. CPU-Intel Core i5 680 (3.6Ghz) Motherboard-ASUS P7P55D Pro Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
