Default DDR3 OCZ Gold PC10666 Memory Problem


I am having troubles configuring my memory settings. I hope someone can help me choose and set required options in BIOS correctly.

Here is what I have:
Motherboard: ASRock P43Twins1600 with support of DDR2/DDR3
CPU: Intel Core(TM) 2 Quad (Q9550) 4 @ 2.83 GHz 12MB Cache, 1333 MHz FSB
Memory: 2 X (2 DDR3 OCZ Gold PC10666, 9-9-9-20)
Power Supply: OCZ Technology, GameXtreme 700W
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 500GBs
Video Card: Asus Geforce 9800GT Ultimate 512MB
Windows: Windows XP SP3

After I built my computer using these parts, I did not change anything in my BIOS settings. First, after running for like 4 hours, it froze. In some games models looked like pink blocks without any textures on them. However, this only happens after approximately 30 minutes of game play.

When I removed one 2GB memory stick, games became more stables and crashes were not very often, while textures look fine most of the time even in very demanding games. But it still happens once in a while. Plus, I know it shouldn't be overheating problem as all cores run at 35 C degrees.

Please help me with this issue.

Thank you.
