what do you mean by "rams completely stops working"?

Please give as much detail as you can and we'll do our best to help you 馃檪

I might be experienced, but I'm human and I do make mistakes.Expand for common PC building advice, a short bio and a list of my components and other tech.聽I edit my messages after sending them alot, please refresh before posting your reply. Please try to be clear and specific, you'll get a better answer. Please remember to mark solutions once you have the information you need.

Common build advice: 1) Buy the cheapest (well reviewed) motherboard that has the features you need. Paying more typically only gets you features you won鈥檛 use. 2) only get as much RAM as you need, getting more won鈥檛 (typically) make your PC faster. 3) While I recommend getting an NVMe drive, you don鈥檛 need to splurge for an expensive drive with DRam cache, DRamless drives are fine for gamers. 4) paying for looks is fine, just don鈥檛 break the bank. 5) Tower coolers are usually good enough, unless you go top tier Intel or plan on OCing. 6) OCing is a dead meme, you probably shouldn鈥檛 bother. 7) "Bottlenecks" rarely matter and "Future-proofing" is a myth. 8) AIOs don't noticably improve performance past 240mm.

So, you install it in the PC at which point it is working and detected, and then after some amount of time, without any crashes, it just stops being detected and the amount of RAM shown in task manager or the bios decreases? is that correct? 馃
