So yesterday I hopped on my PC after doing some slight overclocking the night before (boosted CPU to 4.3 from the 4.2 boost clock using an autoclock, boosted GPU +70 core and +100 memory which was a stable clock that I had used before, and enabled XMP on my ram as I didn’t realize it was off and previously just had it clocked to 3000 MHz), and about 20 minutes into playing some games my PC blue screened. I decided I should just revert the clocks for now as I didn’t exactly have performance issues before, I was just trying to squeeze out a bit extra.
Well, I booted up my PC after that and it was getting major video/audio stutters, so I ran the Windows Memory Test after doing some searching and it did say my memory was bad. I then tested each ram stick alone in each slot, and I would still get the exact same video/audio stutters. I was wondering if this could actually be a CPU or motherboard problem, (or even something else), as I don’t want to spend 200$ on new ram just to find out that it doesn’t fix anything. I’ve tried updating all of my drivers so I don’t think that is the problem, but at the same time every issue I’ve run across seems like it’s either caused by bad ram or bad drivers.
I should mention; the CPU and motherboard are fairly new, about 6 months old. 2 of the ram sticks are 1 year old and 2 of them are 3 years old. I’ve had no issues at all with them before this though.
