so i had some dodgy memory, but running memtest (which i needed too do to RMA) really buggered up my system, as i was getting instant BSOD just trying to get into memtest. Anyway manged it and duff memory sent off, i insert my working memory and get loads of windows errors and issues. Cut my losses and format and start a fresh. New Build...
So everything is installed and working, however i seem to get some input lag and stutter when windows loads, but apart from that it seemed ok for the entire day.
When i tried to play Battlefield3 i would get in to the game between 1 and 5mins my gcard fans go mental and the pc shuts down.
temps are fine, but wondering if i have somehow borked my gcard or mobo using the dodgy memory?
At a loss knowing what is at fault.
all hardware has been working fine for about 8 weeks before i added the new duff memory. memtest says current memory is fine and i was able to stress test using prime for 45mins (all overclocks removed)
