BSOD after XMP set for memory

I've had trouble trying to use the XMP settings on my memory. When I set the XMP profiles I end up with BSOD and/or very high temps on the CPU, even when just internet browsing or equally non-intensive work.

I've tried both profiles, and just setting for the 1866 setting from the bios with the same issue.

My system specs are

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core
Motherboard: Asus Z87-PRO ATX LGA1150
Memory: 2 G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 (16gb total)
Storage: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" SSD
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4GB
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 ATX Mid Tower
Power Supply: Kingwin 650W ATX12V / EPS12V
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)
BIOS: v. 1205

The system works fine under the default settings (1333)
As soon as I'm able I will add the exact settings of default and the XMP profiles

This is a new computer, just built a few weeks ago. I'm not yet overclocking (waiting to get a good cooling system) so that shouldn't be an issue.

Does any of the memory guru's have any advice or solutions I could pursue?

    You have 2 individual sticks (different packages correct? If so, try setting them manually to freq, base timings and DRAM voltage, XMP is done by the package, so they may be straining to perform at 1866 and voltages may be higher than required as the BIOS not sure what to do
