So I recently bought the G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB DDR4-3600MHz (F4-3600C18D-16GTZRX). Everything looked to work fine, but after some Blackout rounds it crash, then I tryed to enter the game again but it crash till I restart the pc. Then I run normally the game but after some rounds (2-3) it did the same. So I tried back my OLD MEMS and everything work fine for hours. I put back in the new and I took like 2 or 3 restarts to even start the PC. I ask the technic guy in the store I bought them and he told me to run some memtest. I did and the new MEMS pass all of them without any problem. He told me to check my MOB manufacturer to see if it can support the new mems so as the manual says it can support up to 64gb and I only have 16gb. So yesterday day I was still looking on it and I got into msi bios and change everything to default, so XMP turned off, I played some games without any problem I enter and exit the game many times and had no crash. So I have the belief that XMP ON causes the crashes. Can you tell me if you know if that is possible and if it how to fix it?
My specs :
CPU : i5 6500
GPU : Nvidia GTX 1060 Founders edition
PSU : 550w
MOB : Tomahawk Z170 (if I am not mistaken).
Hope someone can help!!!
 
CPU and ram overclocking depends on motherboard.
Z170A TOMAHAWK:
3600(OC)/3200(OC)/ 3000(OC)/ 2800(OC)/ 2600(OC)/ 2400/ 2133 MHz

Problem is - OC modes are not guarantied and may require manual tweaking of ram parameters.
If XMP 3600mhz mode gives you problems, try 3200mhz mode.

Thanks mate, you were so right... I did put it manually at 3200mhz and it works perfectly for hours!!! 😘
