Question Driver crash caused by RAM

For a time now I had the problem that my Nvidia Driver just crashes regulary and I found many solutions to solve my problem. Most post said I had to reinstalling my Nvidia Driver or installing Windows new. There were some others that said, that I should install a different display driver version or change some things with regedit.

I did most things I found and it never really helped. But after some trial and error with switching hardware out, I found out that the Driver only crashes when I have all my RAM inside.

When I only have my Corsair inside it doesn't crash and when I have my G.Skill inside it also doesn't crash. But when I have both inside the Driver crashes about every 30 minutes, sometimes faster sometime slower.

On a reddit post I made I only got one answer that said I couldn't use different RAM on the same Mainboard and that is why the driver crashes. But I did find a few posts online that said it shouldn't be a problem to have RAM of different Hz or Manufactorer if the Mainboard does support it.

I hope somebody can help me clear my confusion if you can mix different RAM or not. Because if I buy a new RAM-Stick I don't wish for the same problem to repeat itself.

Things I already tried:
  • Reinstalled Windows
  • Reinstalled Nvidia Driver and different Versions with DDU
  • Did a Memtest
Thanks for reading this and trying to help.
