More than 2 RAMS gives COMPUTER BSOD and Memtestx86 gives error?

have This pc where i want to add more than 2 sticks of ram but when i use more than 2 lots of the 4 slots for ram, memtest86 gives errors, and computer give BSOD. No matter what combination i use two Rams of the 4 Rams i have i dont get BSOD

  1. I would try forcing a downclock of the RAM in the BIOS (don't leave it on auto) to 2133 speeds. See if that works.
  2. First off if the memory are not the same, you will get BSOD and or random freeze ect.
    You need same speed, cl and voltage memory to stay out of trouble.

    Did you try try use the two later ram slot only and run memtest ?

    If you did and the ram are the same, most likely you have trouble with ram slot and the mobo needs to be RMA or changed if not under warranty.
  3. Ram is sold in kits for a reason.
    A motherboard must manage all the ram using the same specs of voltage, cas and speed.
    The internal workings are designed for the capacity of the kit.
    Ram from the same vendor and part number can be made up of differing manufacturing components over time.
    Some motherboards, can be very sensitive to this.
    This is more difficult when more sticks are involved.
    That is why ram vendors will NOT support ram that is not bought in one kit.

    My only suggestion is to try increasing the ram voltage in the bios before adding the extra sticks.
    Sometimes that will help.
    Start with the minimum default speed.

    well all the slot work everything works in every way , but only with 2 Rams, and all the rams have same cl and bus and voltage input. I can find ram kit in the shop i bought but they all have similar spec apart from serial number.
    rather the guy in shop used his 2 8gb ram with my 2 other rams which has totally different bus and speed but then it shows no error on memtest
  5. I had 4 sticks of identical RAM and only 2 worked until I forced the downclock in my BIOS. My board and RAM were supposed to be able to handle the higher clocks but it never was able to with more than 2 sticks installed.

    FUnny and sad that my vendor dont give a crap about ram kits. If thats the case it will be hard for me to find one. Every vendor in our country sells mostly single rams

    Can you check your BIOS again and see if XMP is on. Try with it off. Or try each profile, starting with the slowest.

    You have a 6th gen processor so per their website:
    **DDR4 memory modules can only run at maximum of 2400 MHz for 7th Gen processors and 2133 MHz for 6 th Gen processors on XMP mode.

    If changes to BIOS don't do anything then it is either incompatible RAM (what is the kit part number?) or the board or CPU are bad. If there is no possibility for warranty claim then you might just have to live with only 2 sticks in there unfortunately.
