Hi, there's a problem arises after 1 year and almost 6 months, that is my 4GB Ram is not working. I know the problem, which is I was using 1600mhz ram on my i5-second generation laptop. Two rams were attached, first is 2gb 1333mhz and second is that 4gb 1600mhz.
But can anyone tell me why it runs perfectly for more than 1 year and now it don't? instead it makes Fan so loud and just black screen.
 
Not exactly for a pre-built computer since it will either work or not based on CPU model.

For aftermarket motherboards that can OC, it is more applicable as insufficient settings can cause instability. Also, OC margin can vary so any value above what is stated for CPU is not officially supported by processor.
