I've been having some game and browser crashes lately where I'll get errors either from a game, or from Opera GX saying something like it's ran out of memory. At the time I was running 16GB (8x2) of the Vengeance 3600 Mhz. Originally I realized XMP wasn't turned on so I went in there to see if enabling it potentially would assist me with this but it did not (I know it usually works the other way around). I ended up buying two more sticks since I can use them for browsing and music production anyways... but I'm still getting the errors. Before AND after the upgrade I had also gotten BSODs a handful of times.

I ran memtest86 overnight and it seems to have a lot of errors. I finally realized that I'm using a 650W gold PSU that according to a couple of online calculators may not be enough to run the two HDDs, two SSDs, my 3070, and Ryzen 3800XT. Not to mention a handful of USB peripherals / phone charger. My system actually seemed to have gotten a bit more stable after unplugging additional peripherals that weren't totally critical. I'm just curious if anyone experienced with memtest86 can tell me if this readout seems like something that could reasonably be caused by an insufficient PSU. I will probably grab a gold 850W Thermaltake while it's on sale.

Thanks in advance!!

RAM is only guaranteed to work together when bought as a kit.

You can try bumping RAM voltage a bit to see if that helps.

What make/model PSU?
Yeah I bought both of the 8 x 2's together in a kit. It was erroring out the same when I had the 16 as it is now after adding 16 more for a total of 32.

This is the PSU I bought when I started this build a couple years ago:
Montech Gamma II Series 650 Watt 80+ Gold

Fit the orig kit in the proper slots on the mobo.
Run memtest.
No errors allowed.

Remove that kit and install the new kit.
Run memtest.
No errors allowed.

Any diff?

I may try that tonight. Last night I tried following a guide to mirror the XMP profile and overvolt the RAM to the same setting. Apparently people have been having issues when they mess with turning on XMP, but if you manually enter the same timings and voltage then it seems to work. I should say that originally I don't think I had this issue until toggling XMP on, however at some point when I was having issues I realized XMP had turned itself off, not sure how... I was still having the issue at that time, but since mirroring the XMP profile manually it's been fine. I'll give it another day.
