I've built a hackintosh, and for the first time I'm regretting it.

It's built around the GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK board, and I've been having memory issues.

Once in a while, the system will panic (spontaneous reboot followed by the multilingual screen).

Other times, I seem to get memory corruption in application space, which causes weird problems. Today it was chrome, that wouldn't open tabs anymore, sometimes it's a glitch in some other application.

To me it all points to memory problems.

Here are some specs:

GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK
Memory 32 Gb: CML16GX3M2A1600C10 x 4
Bios: F8
OS: 10.11.6

I've actually replaced the ram, and bought those sticks specifically because they were listed in the memory compatibility list provided by Gigabyte.

I's frustrating because the system is 'almost stable' I can put it to sleep, wake it up, audio works.

Any ideas?

Thanks for pointing that out. I think I've filled in the profile as required. Any ideas on the RAM issues?

I have the Z97X UDH5 Black. I cannot remember what memory I have but it's 32GB as well.

The memory you list appears to be correct and is from a reputable memory dealer.

There are masses of BIOS settings that can be changed, it's unclear what you have set. I almost never go into the BIOS and change anything as my Z97X is rock solid. Never crashed due to memory AFAIK.

I had a set of pictures for my BIOS setting. These are from my machine.


See if they match yours.
