I have a problem. I added 8GB (2x4GB) to my existing 8GB (2x4GB) making 16GB utilising each RAM slot. Since adding the RAM I have had BAD_POOL_Header BSOD before shutting down and at random times. About 3-4 in the last week. I had not had 1 before in the past year, was a really stable system. The only caveat is that I added the Nvidia 510 GPU about a month ago, but problem only appeared after adding RAM.

I wonder if the issues are related?

Intel I3-2100
16GB XMS Corsair Ram (4x4GB)
Nvidia 510 GPU
Intel XHD Raid 2x220GB WD Disks

Thanks for your help

I would try and run Memtest86 to see if your RAM is stable or not. Are you sure the memory is compatible with your motherboard?
