Should be mid 30s during idle and 50s during stress. Yours are 43 during idle...
During stress it was around 54-58C. I'll be getting thermal paste today so should expect dip in temp. Just hope not much damage has been done to it.

Back to my recent BSOD, did it indicate anything other than memory corruption?

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: ffffffffffffff8b, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000001, bitfield :
	bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
	bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: fffff80002aaf733, address which referenced memory

Your most recent was rather inconclusive.

Quote:
This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high.
The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.
If you encounter bug check 0xA while upgrading to a later version of Windows, this error might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new version.

Hmm well I guess I'll upload more BSOD when/if I get them.

Thanks for the help again.

Can you post the information requested below in post #31 in this thread?

We need to know what hardware you have, in order to try and find the cause of your crashes. Please fill in your system specs.

Did you Uninstall the ASUS utilities for testing purposes, these are known to cause system crashes?

What is the new RAM you installed, what are the settings?

This is likely a hardware issue, specifically RAM, we need to know what components you have.

Did you run memtest86+ for a full 7 passes, best to run overnight.
This is recommended over Windows memtest, it will find errors more reliably, it runs without the OS.

Run this with both RAM cards installed.
