You're welcome, although I just pointed you in the right direction. You did all the hard work, and you did it well apparently. Nice job!

When you are confident enough to mark this thread solved, feel free to do so.

Back at it

Hey so I am finally trying to get around to doing the tests on my PC that you outlined for me. But I;m a terrible procrastinator and I have to go to work soon. I do have one question though. I just fired up HWiNFO64 and under the memory tab its got the Maximum Supported Memory Clock at 666.7 MHz (5:1 ratio) and its showing the Current Memory Clock at 668.3 MHz (5:1 ratio) that seems bad to me, but is it actually a problem or no?

668.3 MHz is within specs. With a pre-fabricated system, BIOS settings are typically unavailable, but we may be able to tune down the frequency if you are concerned about it. I do not think it will be an issue, though.

If you do decide you want to tune it:
  • Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot.

    Also, go into your BIOS and post all Voltages (CPU, RAM, NB, IMC, etc.) and all RAM settings (timings, frequency, etc.)

    Thanks to Dave76 for help learning RAM Stability

Furmark

Okay so I just downloaded FurMark and loaded it up and started the Burn-in test. It ran for about eight to ten seconds before my PC restarted itself, exactly like what happens when I run any game.
I am also wondering if my problem could be about some hardware that came loose when I moved back in January, but I am apprehensive about poking around inside my case. What would you advise for now?

What temperature showed up during the FurMark test? Keep a close eye on the temperatures when you run it. They show up in the FurMark program itself toward the top. You may need to run it a few times until you find the temperature and can keep track of what it reaches before the PC restarts.
