I have just installed all my new hardware upgrades 2 weeks ago and its very unstable.
I get 3 error messages when the BSOD happens....They are...
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
"modificatio of system code or critical data structure was detected"
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA


My research all refers to a Bad stick of RAM
I have ...

Corsair 16GB (4x4GB) 1866MHz DDR3 CL9 Vengeance Performance with XMP 1.3 for AMD, Intel P67, Z68 and X79 Platforms. CMZ16GX3M4X1866C9
'''

I have done some basic research online and all details i can find suggest I have a bad stick of RAM.
As Guru have helped me in the past I thought i would ask here as well.
Is this actually correct?


If this is correct and i assume it is, how do i identify the bad one? I have 32GB of RAM installed.

I emailed corsair but they havent replied yet, and with my Tech guy he is on the clock this weekend so I dont have much of his time, so a definitive answer would really help and get my PC up and running faster.

Yes I am aware of this program. Thanks for that.

Here is the thing. My son has since exchanged the Motherboard, Ram and CPU with identical new ones. And so far it all works great.
Now I need to know, who do I contact for warranty replacement..
ASUS for Motherboard
Corsair for bad Ram stick
or Intel for bad CPU.

My son is firm on the Motherboard and I am leaning towards Ram stick.


Do any of the error messages offer me some firm clues?

The BDSO don't say much.

1) I would test the RAM to be sure they are OK

2) From my experience, it looks like a faulty mobo - replace the mobo first
