Good detective work. I hope this solves the problem. Post back in a couple of days and update us. I hope we can mark this one as solved.

Would you do me a favor? I am looking for people with bad RAM to do a test for me.

First, how many passes did Memtest complete before it found errors? Or did you not notice?

Second, try testing your RAM with Prime95. Use this tutorial:

Instead of selecting Small FFTs, select "Blend". See how long it takes to error.

I don't believe it's the memory, I checked each stick separately in socket 1 and 2 and they checked out fine, but putting either of them in socket 3 or 4 and that's when i get the all the error's. So I assume that it is bad sockets on my motherboard. I was running them in Dual Channel mode in sockets 1 and 3 which is what the manual for my MB calls for. So now i'm down to one dimm in socket 1 which seems to be running fine... no BSOD's anyway.

By the way memtest started showing errors immediately on sockets 3 and 4 with either dimm
