    As the title mentions, I got when I install the 2nd stick of my 16gb kit (patriot viper mamba black) the system becomes quite unstable. Prior to installing windows, it wouldn't pass the initial BIOS screen and after completing Windows install (with only 1 stick) I put the 2nd in and it would load windows then crash.
    I read that the board is capable of 16gb, did I buy the wrong memory, or get a bad stick?

    more details please. what are the frequency of the ram etc.

    i dont think q6600 can do more than 1333MHz.
    also make sure your memory is compatible with the motherboard(look at the manual)

    tried change the blocks around or the other dimms? not like A1-B1 but A2-B2?

    do u use XMP profile in bios? if yes and that don't work try putting up the voltage to 1.65v if that don't help and it does it in all the dimms then it may be a bad board or mem controller in the cpu.

    Did you try each Module separately in each slot?

    And i presume you are using this kit? Patriot Viper 'Black Mamba' 2133mhz Gen 3 16GB

    If you have the second Module installed go to your Bios and check the timings and speed setting maybe your board isn´t reading the XMp profile correctly
