If you want to run it again just to be 1000% sure, then we can confidently check that off the list.

I will be working through these minidumps.

well well this is the 2nd time i've done the test. i would say about. . . 8 days ago and i got errors within the first few seconds. Not good! I will try other sticks of ram and see what they say.

Is there any way to repair the errors or its rma time?

RMA, unless it is a voltage issue. but you must ensure it is the ram and not the mobo slot, as that can also result in memtest errors

Do you know the specifics of the ram and your motherboard/cpu? If you do I can run you through how to check your system voltrages in the bios. Was this prebuilt, or did you build the rig?

*Edit*
your last dump was from a "bugcheck 116" Video TDR failure

This is most definitely a video issue, as this code is most indicative of video hardware problems.

Make sure verifier is turned off, and I want you to try to run furmark

Good luck sir

strange. i set the 5-5-5-18 and 1.8v and now there's isn't errors popping up right away. Ill let it run over night.

btw beast thanks for helping me out

spoke too soon and the errors came back. I will trouble shoot with switching ram out and putting in other sticks of ram.

Not a problem, I became a member of this forum because of my own problems, so I know how it feels to be on your end.

So I think you may have more than just bad ram....

sadly my first card that i sent in about. . . 1 month ago was clean. This is why i can't just point at the video card and say thats IT!!! i need to exhaust everything else even by sending my mobo in before i send in the video card. However, i would like to put my finger on whats causing this and have something to take to either the mobo or the video card guys.

i have 4 slots for ram in my mobo.

1 - a - yellow
2 - b - black
3- c - yellow
4- d - black

so for i kept that pattern up only using one stick at a time and nothing came up for errors. So i will try the dual link slots and see if that pops any errors with 2 sticks at a time.

seems all 4 in at once is causing the error. I had 2b-3c-4b filled with no errors and now testing 1a-2b-4d to see if i can encounter any errors. If not then i will start swapping ram sticks around.

i have had the yellows filled in the same ram and no instant errors. So i will try unlinking the slots and see if that makes it more stable.

seems when there's ram in all slots in unlinked state it still causes errors.

can't seem to get furmark to run for 15 minutes in one sitting.

First time it ran 3-4mins and then white screened. Came back as the program wasn't responding. When i tried to relaunch it i got black screen of death.

Second time it ran for 3 mins and then it closed. 1-2 mins later windows came up saying furmark closed. When i tried to relaunch i got that my nvidia driver crashed and then recovered and got a error message attached to it.

Nvidia Open Gl Driver error message with an error code of 4.

i applied this

You can try out the following solution:
Just Go to the registry editor by going in to the start > run > regedit
Then just Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControlGraphicsDriv
ers and just check that your GraphicsDrivers is appearing highlighted.
After that just Right click on it and then go in to New > DWORD (32-bit) value > and then Name it as (TdrDelay) and then double click on it and then Set it to A (hexadecimal) or 10 (decimal).
Just try to perform the above solution and let me know if it helps or not. Best of luck.
lets see if it does anything.

Can anyone tell me what the timestamp on ASACPI.sys says in these dmp files?
