I had made an earlier post about my computer crashing while rendering video. But after hours of troubleshooting, I have found that when I try to dual channel my two sticks of corsair ram, the computer shuts off as if someone unplugged it while rendering. But when I tested with just 1 stick in all of the RAM slots, the render finished with no problem and I am no longer getting crashes. Is this the RAM's or the Motherboard's fault? And what do you recommend I do?

It could be that your ram isn't supported by the motherboard for the dual-channel. You can check your motherboard manual for a list of the supported RAMs.
