    recently i just received a pair of 2x4gb Nurams from OWC. within a day of usage i already experienced app crashing and also 2 kernel panic attacks. both seem to originate from safari and pasted below is the report log. i was thinking it might be faulty rams so i did apple hardware test, techtool deluxe test and also memtest which did a thorough test on my ram. however all 3 test shows that the NuRam is working fine. Anyone with any answer for this?

    Hate to state the obvious but if you suddenly started incurring problems after installing new memory, then the odds are high that its the ram.

    Pull the ram, and go back to the old configuration and see if stability returns. If so, then contact the retailer where you bought it. You have bad ram.

    It doesn't matter if a test is saying the ram is good, your computer is basically reporting the opposite by giving you kernel panics

    My situation is the same. Rember and techtool deluxe both say the ram is fine. But I had a kernel panic the day I put my two sticks from OWC in. Also has a couple hang-ups on boot and on shut down. I put my stock ram back in and things seem to back to normal. I'm going to be returning mine to OWC.
