  • Suggest memory for GA-Z68XP-UD4 & Intel 2500k

    Today I plugged in my new Kingston HyperX 1866Mhz 8GB stick only to find out that my PC went into boot loop. I couldn't even go into the bios to change the settings. I was sure that it would work since my board clearly supports RAM upto 2133MHz. Can someone please make a suggestion which stick should I buy for my board that will clearly work? Do I need to geet 2 x 4GB sticks or a singlee 8GB stick of 1866Mhz work?
