3 out of 5 eggs Good Ram, doesn't like AMD CPU or AMD MOBO not sure which 08/21/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1866C10

Pros: Ram is good, XMP is nice to have if your an intel user

Cons: Doesn't play well with Biostar AMD MOBO/CPU. Couldn't widdle it down to figure out which it was that was the culprit however, when I bought the ram, weeks after having my machine up and running played games like BF3 and other ram intensive games errors and BSODS began to show themselves. I'm assuming its good ram but its compatability is overadvertised because its claimed to work with both CPU manufacturers.

Other Thoughts: Take my word for it, only use it if you have intel because troubleshooting memory related issues is EXTREMELY time consuming when comparing trouble shooting to other computer components.
