Repeat for all slots. Then repeat the whole thing with the other stick(s) of RAM. Allow a minimum of 3 passes each time, and let us know what the results are. Do you get memory errors in some slots but not others, regardless of which stick of RAM is inserted? Is/are it the same slot(s) giving the errors each time?
Alright. I'll start with the first stick overnight, and continue with the rest tomorrow.
Thanks for the help so far guys.

Just another thought. Since the memory controller is built-in to the CPU, it could be that is faulty and not the motherboard. Have you got another CPU that you could try?

I do not have another CPU compatible with this motherboard. I only have one computer.
Also update from overnight, the first memory stick ran 11 passes without error in slot one.
However, when I tried testing it in slot 3 (the next slot over on this motherboard), it would not even boot; giving the two long beeps then stating the computer could not boot because of overclocking... Same can be said for slot 4. Slot 1 and 2 work fine.

I do have the ram changed from the auto default of 11-11-11-28 to 9-9-9-24, would that be considered overclocking?
And if so, why does it work in the first slots but not the second slots?

One last thought, I read that AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE's only support 1333mhz ram... and if I wanted any higher speed out of my ram I would have to overclock the CPU first. BUT, when I first booted the board, right after I put it all together over a week ago, it had my ram speed at a default of 2000mhz, not 1333 like many people were claiming.

For the CPU, is there stress-testing that could be done for it?

I almost feel like RMA-ing everything and starting over...

Here is your RAM from the number in your CPUz snip, where this has an 4GBRL, this is 8GBRL which means it is an 8GB kit.
These are the settings it should work at. You can try bumping the RAM volts by .125V or so. If you have CPU-NB volts, raise it by .200V.

I'll try fiddling with the voltages after some more testing then.

I've been running Prime95 blend test, and after 10 minutes my CPU is at 61 degress Celsius... the max temperature is 65 I'm pretty sure. Is this bad?
EDIT: Also, bear in mind this is with my case opened... I can just put my hand overtop, inside the case, and I can feel it being very hot in there.

Edit2: Oh and is the tRC fine at 33? For the memory.

Updates: Ran Prime95 blend test for 2 hours with no errors, CPU max temp was 61 but stabilized at around 58 when I turned my case fan to high.
Computer hasn't crashed for 4 hours now, nothing unusual about that, though. Seems to run for a good few hours before crashing.
Currently running Video Memory Stress Test for the next 2 hours. I'll post if that shows anything, and then I'll probably to Furmark afterwords.

Update 2: Completed Video Memory Stress Test and Furmark with no errors, or artifacts, or crashes.
Furmark leveled out at 60 degrees after running for about 15 minutes.

Sounds promising now. Yep tRC should be fine at 33-34, it's not so critical but stay close to 33.

Ya seems to be running just fine now.
No crashes at all yesterday.
But there is still the matter of the ram not wanting to boot in the other slots. I think I'll just ask Gigabyte about that one.

Still a little too soon to say solved on this just yet, but if it doesn't crash at all in the next few days of use, I'll mark it solved.

Sounds good. You may have a bad RAM slot. If Gigabyte offers to RMA it for you see if they have an option to get a replacement then send your old one in. That way you will get another board and not your old one back.

Oh alright. They'd normally try to fix it and send it back vs a new one?

Also, 38 is a good temp for a CPU with minor load? (just internet browsing and wayching live streams)
My case is pretty old (Antec Sonata III), with only a rear exhaust fan and I was thinking of cutting out a spot in the top of it for another 120mm fan to possibly increase air circulation. Not exactly sure if needed though? Those temps are with the case open, and on its side, though. It goes up another 3-5 degrees closed and upright.
