    What ram did you have in it? It will need low voltage 1.35v sticks.

    it's 1.35v stick - Crucial 8GB DDR3 1600 sodimm 1.35v - CT102464BF160B.C16FER

    I revert back to the original stick it came with Samsung 4GB 1.35v 1Rx8 PC3L-12800S-11-13-B4 M471B5173BD0-YK0

    Then, the boot up BSOD went away

    I would trust Samsung magician yes. Firmwares are released to fix issues & improve performance. So definitely do it!

    Can you share with everyone on the RAM that you had used which was incompatible? And the new one that's compatible?

    I have incompatible issues with Crucial 8GB DDR3 1600 sodimm 1.35v - CT102464BF160B.C16FER

    Would anyone care to share which 8GB DDR3L stick that they have no issues with?

    You mentioned the RAM passing MemTest86+ testing. Unfortunately this doesn't mean much. We've ran into many instances where MemTest86+ reported no issues, only for us to replace the RAM anyways and see the BSODs disappear. MemTest86 is a fine stress testing tool, but it doesn't always pick up faulty memory.

    Either the system really doesn't like that particular RAM module, or you had faulty memory after all.

    I have the same Ram stick and I had problems with it, with awaking after sleep mode.

    Crucial says the memory is compatible with UX303 but looks like it is picky.
    Have you updated the BIOS to the latest version? Perhaps you can try it again.
    Also, if you got a pair, then try just a single module individually, then finally, both of them.

    If problem persists, then change them out to something else.
    Because these Taiwanese brands are most likely compatible with Kingston, ADATA, and Samsung, so perhaps try sticking to Kingston and see how they go.

    it's already on ver206 the latest version out there. there's only one sodimm slot that accommodate up to 8GB module with 4GB soldered to the mainboard.

    Does anyone experience the problem of having their UX303LN CPU always running at 2.4-2/5 GHz? It's just ridiculous. Even playing music (either offline or online) boosts the CPU speed to 2.5 GHz, as with watching videos, and even two-finger tapping to double click.

    I know that there's a "fix" for the ASUS Smart Gesture boosting CPU speed problem, but I tried it and it didn't work.

    Anyone knows how to solve the problem?
