    Why the fuck does my RAM keep going bad?

    Had some shitty 4GBx2 Sticks of old patriot, it lasted me over a year and then I started getting the ntoskrnl.exe bluescreen, so I ran a memtest and got a bunch of errors. I said fuck it I needed new ram anyways.
    Went to the store and bought 4GBx2 sticks of corsair vengance about 3 months ago, now I am getting the same blue screen and a bunch of memtest errors.

    Do I just have terrible luck or can I be doing something wrong on my build to make the memory fail?
    BTW, the RAM failed both times on separate installations of windows.


    It's not a fucking game...

    It's probably a problem with your mobo.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    That's exactly what I thought. Maybe just a memory slot issue. BSOD's sure as hell are a bitch, though. Best of luck with your issue.

    Try removing a stick. You might have a faulty DIMM slot.
