Hi Guys. It was time to do some upgrading of my machine so i migrated my OS to a SSD and bought some new ram. I got it all set up and got a q-code 50 (crosshair v form z mobo(code means wrong timings or incompatible ram) tried 1 stick (4x4 gskill) in A2 slot and then a different stick and still q50. Put 1 stick of my older ram in and same problem... Put all three sticks (2x3 g.skill) of old ram in and finally got the system to boot but it only reads 2gb (1 stick). My system is reporting hardware issues and crashing. Oh and also ive already cleared my CMOS.

Any ideas???

Thanks!
