I recently ordered HyperX Predator Black 16GB Kit 3000MHz DDR4 CL15 DIMM XMP Desktop Memory HX430C15PB3K2/16

Some games, such as modern warfare and Rust, make my screen go black when they are run in fullscreen mode. However, when I select a different window on another monitor like chrome, I can see the game clearly. I must run the games in windowed mode for them to work. I did not have this problem prior to changing my ram.

I have tried reinstalling gpu drivers. no luck.
specs
motherboard: MSI Z170A GAMING PRO CARBON

GPU: nvidia 1070 ti

cpu: intel i7-6700k

old ram: XPG ADATA DDR4 2800mhz 16gb 8x2 cl17

new ram : Hyperx Predator 3000mhz DDR4 16GB cl15 8x2

200MHz wouldn't give you and visible performance boost but did you set XMP again to match new RAM ?

I set the frequency to 3000Mhz and then tried 2133Mhz because that is the highest my CPU specs says it can handle but still run into the black screen problem.
