My new RAM

by DatThor - 9/17/13 10:20 AM

Hello there,

I got some new RAM.
Corsair XMS 2 Xtreame performance DDR2 memory on the front side.
Corsair CM2X1024-6400 5-5-5-12 1.9 V ver5.2 800 Mhz 1024 MB 748047 08081435 XMS2-6400 on the backside.
I also have these one
2xKingston 1GB 240-Pin DDR2
DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)
Cas Latency 5
Voltage 1.8V
My mother board is an ABIT KN9 Ultra.
Website is telling this:
Four 240-pin DIMM sockets
Supports Dual channel DDR2 800 ECC/non-ECC,
Un-buffered memory
Supports maximum memory capacity up to 8GB

So to make it clear after this technical information,
I have 2x those kingstons and they work fine.
But i wont to add those corsair. However when i do it, i get a lot of blue screens.
I tried to replaced them, like 1-3 for kingston and 2-4 for crosair, and a lot of other combo's. But it seems not to work, or i get like 2.5,3,3.5 and sometimes 4 GB.
But they give bluescreens,
memory management and some others....
I hope you got some ideas what i should do, do they even work together? Pls help me happy
Enough information? Otherwise tell me
Thank you, Thorwin
