Hi guys!.

I've been dealing with a lot of trouble on one of my ram kits after an error when restarting w10 to factory, those are:

8x2 Corsair vengeance LPX 3000mhz
8x2 Corsair vengeance LPX 3200mhz

The 4 sticks are set to 2933 - 1.35v in a MSI Gaming Plus NON max with a R5 2600x.

I was using them just fine before the factory reset, tried them all alone with occt, 0 errors in all the slots but when y put the 4 it shows errors inmediatly, even trying to install large games like the witcher 3 (75gb) or ff7r (95gb) gets corrupted and cant install properly. i dont know what else to do at this point, any help appretiated bc i do not know that much about this :(.

I've tested 2933,2800,2600 and ran over to 2133, still have the errors. Something interesting is that the test fails only when i put 60% or more memory on it no matter the frec.

You are mixing 2 different types of ram.
You may never get that to work right.
But the thing i dont get is that i was using those for like more than a year without issues, so when i was resetting w10 i had a bsod in the process and just after that ran with this problems

Did you try to move the DIMMs ? Is each pair in the same channel (A or B) or not ? Refer to p27 of you manual.

I've tested each kit in DIMMA2-B2 then DIMMA1-B1 @ 2933-1.35v (Mobo shows 1.36v at setting but applying 1.356v) .

If let them alone they work properly but if i get the other dimms then occt shows errors after just 10 secs, and if try to install let's say batman arkham knight (65gbs+) i begin to get a corrupted install (that doesnt happen with only 1 kit) and errors extracting winrar files.

I don't know what else to do at this point, as i say, before trying to format my system and getting that bsod mid install all modules worked perfectly. Maybe ram channels are bad at this point? or my cpu?
