Default Duel channeling problem

Right, I got my other stick of ram today and put it in my motherboard. I started getting the blue screen quite often and 3D mark was crashing. I had my PC overclocked a bit with one stick. And I just kept these same speeds when I added the next. Its seems to run stable when everything is at default settings but why not my orignal speeds?

Whats going on here?

So it's working now at stock speeds? Have you tried OCing it again after you got dual channel to work?

Why would the time scale make any diffrence??

And yes I have overclocked again and 3D mark is still crashing. You think it could be faulty memory?

Yes it could be a faulty memory. Are the memory stick EXACTLY like each other, every little detail?

If it's a different batch of RAM, it could prevent you from dual channeling.
