With the ram I suggested in the original thread, it supports XMP profile. All you would have had to do is turn on the XMP in the BIOS and you would be running at 1600 mhz. I have no recommendation using that memory.
I would leave it alone as well. You are not going to notice a speed improvement anyway. You have had a few issues with this build and know I am starting to get a clear picture from the few different threads.
OK, I'll take your advice and leave the RAM as it is.
I haven't experienced any blue screening and my system seems to be pretty stable right now.
Do you think I will experience blue screening down the line?
I have one last question- besides asking for advice here, how can I determine what would be the ideal RAM for a particular board?
Would I visit the manufacturer's site and take a look at the supported ram?
