PLEASE HELP PC Shutdown after RAM Upgrade on Gigabyte B75M-D3H

Config
MOBO: Gigabyte B75M-D3H rev. 1.0 (F4 BIOS)
RAM: 2x Kingston 4GB DDR3 PC3-10700 (667 MHz)
CPU Temp TMPIN2: 35-44 Degrees C
CPU Fan FANIN0: 1433RPM
Processor Temp: 30-53 Degrees C

I bought 2x ADATA 8GB DDR3 PC3-10600 1333 to slot into the remaining RAM channels. At first it booted up alright and my computer was running swiftly. However I did notice my fan was running considerably faster. After around 5 minutes my whole machine started lagging to a stop and then it auto shut down. After doing a few more tests including upgrading the BIOS to F15, removing the Kingston RAM's and just installing the 2x new ADATA Ram modules, switching RAM channels, it was still having the same issue and auto shutdown. Managed to log the details;

CPU Temp TMPIN2: 91 Degrees C
CPU Fan FANIN0: 2528 RPM
Processor Temp: 99 Degrees C

It seems to be that the CPU is overheating and fan going crazy fast, therefore shutting the PC down. Can anybody help? My MOBO supposedly supports up to 32GB RAM, however it seems to be encountering this error at just 24GB. The 2x ADATA RAM have been memtested successfully too. Not sure why this error is occurring.

  1. I would not rely on third party software for accurate temperature readings. The PC Health Status in the BIOS displays CPU Temperature.

    Using multiple kits of memory carries no guarantee for compatibility or if it will work at all or how it works if you get the PC to boot up.

    I really should have forked out the extra cost to get new Kingston RAM's...but is there nothing else I can do at this point? I feel like they should be able to work...as even the manufacturer listed the ADATA's as compatible with the MOBO. However I do understand I'm mixing Kingston and ADATA..

    However in that case, when I tested just using the 2x new ADATA 8GB's and removing the Kingston's it shouldn't have this issue..but I was still getting shutdowns
  3. Bump!
