Well, its 1:30pm right now, and I don't want to keep you waiting, so I guess I just stay away from the computer today and let it run.

OK, sorry for taking a while to reply, I went away yesterday and forgot all about starting the test.
But I started it today, so far its went for 5 hours, its on pass 3, and 0 errors.

Seems like either a bad RAM configuration in the BIOS or defective RAM.

May want to see if you need a better PSU. I ran into random BSODs with a few of the newer games and it came down to huge power draws when everything (ram, gpu, cpu) started ramping up and it turns out my Seasonic 1000W isn't quite up to the task.

Some of this is due to poorly optimized software that make the cards work a little harder than they should have to but either way the only real fault was miscalculating how much power I would need.

I thought (and so did everyone else) that a 1000 Watt Seasonic would be fine and it usually is.

I have found that when you have multiple GPUs ramping up on games (SWTOR is one, it makes full use of CPU multicores) designed to take full advantage of modern GPU (and other modern, high end components) features that takes a big bite out of the power budget.

My video peak draw (not overclocked) is between 600 and 700 watts alone.

On top of that I have a CPU that can draw 130 Watt when under full load (not overclocked) which does not leave a whole lot of power left out of 1000 watts for the rest of what is on my system (multiple spin and SSD drives, power hungry feature rich motherboard and 64 GB of ram, array of USB devices and optical drive).
