What a day to be an Age II fan!!! :kissing_smiling_eyes::muscle:t2:

As you have 12 GB the problem might be due to incompatible timings and lack of dual channel functionality. So which memory modules are there installed in your system?

Also I would like to recommend you to create specific thread for your issue.
