Hi all,
I have 2x2G of Kingston HyperX Blu Genesis 1333Mhz ram. I've been having BSOD & was told by a friend it was a memory error. I had the memory voltage set to auto in BIOS (AMI 0801, 30/112011) SMBIOS Version 2.5), so in CPUID Hardware Monitor Pro i noticed the memory voltage was 1.64v which i thought was too high & was most likly my problem I set it to 1.5v ran prime95 torture test & instant BSOD. I've looked on kingstons site http://www.kingston.com/datasheets/KHX1333C7AD3K2_4G.pdf for correct voltages but can't work out wether it should be set to 1.5v or 1.65v as it kind of shows both.
Thanks for any help you can give....
