I had a huge problem with my computer BSODying all the time and all the times it seemed to be a memory problem. I have 16 gb RAM (4*4) and checked each of my modules individually with memtest86 and what do you know one of them got a huge amount of errors and in each of all 11 test. That module has now been sent in and I hope to receive a replacement soon.
Nevertheless the three others passed with flying colors. Now, however, I don't know whether to use 8 gb or 12 gb until I receive a new module. I was going to use 12 but there are to blue and to black slots. Does that mean I can only use 2 4gb modules at a time (Color paired) or do they just work better if they are paired or is it just the design and has no meaning at all and I should just put all three module in ?
Any hardware master who can enlighten me?
