2 sticks will give you dual channel, but you won't see the difference.
I bought this VengeanceĀ® Pro Series ā€” 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 DRAM 2400MHz C11 Memory Kit (CMY8GX3M2A2400C11)
I've set it to XMP on my MOBO (msi z97 xpower) It's running at 2400Mhz, 11-13-13-31 latency at 1.65V
I've stress tested my PC for over 24hours.. ram and CPU and it was perfectly fine. After the stress test, using the pc normally, web browsing, idling, gaming.. it sometimes just shuts down and says that the overclock was unsuccessful on a black screen... sometimes even before I've typed in my windows pin to get to the desktop.
Would you say its faulty ram?.. or would I have to set the latency manually?
My CPU, i7 4790k is overclocked to 4.7ghz at 1.288 volts and that seems very stable. I haven't had a blue screen during any stress tests or while using the PC normally.
If it was an unstable CPU OC.. it wouldn't show the black screen with OC unsuccessful would it? It would only be a blue screen right?
