Hello i have bought a new PC (build by a company) and there is some Ballistix RAM inside.
I have some crashes in game and I think this is mostly due to the graphic card. However i'm not sure about it and I would like to verify some things that might be "bad".
First of all I have ran a benchmark of my PC and it gave me this reference : BLS4G4D240FSB.8FBD2
On MSI forum someone told be the 2 modules were not compatible just with this reference, so anyone does know the exact signification of the letters and numbers in this reference ?
Secondly, the company sent me the box of the RAM and I see a different reference on this box (not the same that appears with the bench), this reference is : BLS2C4G4D240FSB.
Is it normal to have a different reference between the benchmark and the box ?
So the graphical card will be replaced, and i am running a gtx 760 at the moment meanwhile they send another one.
I don't have thoses crash issues with this card but i can't be sure this is the card because rtx 2070 is like 3 or 4 more powerful than a gtx 760...
The RAM is a line of though for me because when i was running a game even with the lower graphic parameters the RAM usage was rising drastically by example World of warcraft usage was like 5 or 6 Gb which is very huge in my opinion...
My configuration is :
- psu model : COOLER MASTER MWE 750 WATT 80+ GOLD
- CG : MSI RTX 2070 ARMOR 8GDDR6
- Kit : Crucial Ballistix 2X4 Go pc 2400mhz (Crucial BLS4G4D240FSB.8FBD2 2x4GB)
- Bios version : 7B86v14
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
MSI Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070
Samsung 970 EVO 500 Gb
Motherboard MSI B450 GAMING PLUS
If someone has explanations i'll be very greatful !
Thanks in advance,

If your system is running fine now with another video card, then that is the most likely source of your problems.
I know there were some issues with various RAM when Ryzen first launched especially when going above 2400, but I think most of those issues have been resolved with motherboard firmware updates. Check to make sure the firmware on your PC is up to date.
The best way to test a system is by stressing individual components. You may want to monitor your system's various temperature sensors & fan speeds during some of these tests in case you have a cooling issue. Some useful options are:
4) Unigine Superposition, Valley, and Heaven
These are good multiplatform options. I know Windows users have a few more options available as well, but I am not personally familiar with them.
