I have two 3x 2gb sticks totalling 12gb with different version numbers. Is this the cause for my computer crashing intermitently?

Hello,

I have a GA-EX58-UD4p with a i7 920 cpu. I went to buy some ram a few weeeks ago and I asked for the 9-9-9-24, the same as my original ones (i dont care about too much about minor improvements in speed). After crashing intermittently I thought it was my graphics card but now im thinking its the different version numbers.

I have
TR3X6G1333C9 9-9-9-24 3 Sticks with 1.50V Ver8.11
and another
TR3X6G1333C9 9-9-9-24 3 Sticks with 1.50V Ver2.3

What you guys reckon? Thanks guys

i would run with only 1 version to test - then with the other version sticks
that should show any problems
you can run memtest86+ also to test it :  www.memtest.org

and check if you can adjust the voltage for the ram in the BIOS
if you can set it 1 step higher, it can help too

Thanks, Although it didnt fix my problem, I found that memtest was  an useful app advising me that when either ram is installed no problems but when both are installed, errors occur.
