Shut down your machine, take out the ram copy the ram serial number on the back or front and bring it back here.
I'll look up that info myself and help get you something better.
Also this might be wrong, but how long have you had your sata cables ?
It may be old and starting to die out, the only it time happens is what you mentioned lags and stutters too much.
I had that issue with sata cables beginning to wear out in the past and now again at xmas time 2013.
Your issue sounds abit simliar to mine, thats why I mentioned it. :/
