Hello everyone! So i got 2 new ram sticks (ripjaws v 8gb each 3200 mhz). My motherboard doesnt support their speed but i got them because i will be getting a new one soon.
So i installed them and set their mhz to 2933 in the bios (which is the highest my mobo supports) and booted my pc. Everything worked fine ( i even did a windows memory diagnostics check and it found no problems) after about 1 hour (maybe even less) of usage i got a bluescreen saying "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL" so i got scared and put everything on auto and my pc is running at 2133 mhz now. What should i do? How much voltage should i allocate to it if i were to put it at 2933 again? Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Also a quick side note i am running my ram at 1.2v should i increase it?
