oh sorry .... misread your post

The WEI score depends on the speed of the RAM and how its paired on the motherboard. But that has nothing to do with what you are going through here

Has it BSOD.... or anything happining

No nothing yet, although I am running memtest on each stick in each slot (again) I ran it for around 10 hours while at work before and it was fine but I'm doing it again just in case!

Ok you need to run it for atleast 7 to 8 passes.,, each time...

But just want to ask... prior to the memtest did you start the system and checked if it bsod...

No, g-skill in dual channel, I made two passes on each stick in the two black channels next to CPU and then tried both together! It's on 8 passes almost but I'm going to leave it running overnight! There have been no errors yet though! I'm starting to think its the mobo!

Why is it so difficult to do what you are asked to do ??? Each RAM on each slot each for 7 to 8 passes ==> Test .... We seriously don't find any happiness by asking you to do this ... this is used to find out if RAM or the Mobo slot are at fault... Its a time consuming process..

You just tested each RAM for 2 passes !!!

For goodness sake you wasted 57 post and freaking 3 days.. ( check what Koolkat has advised you in post #6 and post #8 ) of your time and ours by not providing feedback..

I have not wasted anybody's time as I already have tested each one! What I said I was doing was testing it 'again' just to be doubly sure as I was told its deffinately a memory issue in a post or two ago! Memtest has been running since about 4pm yesterday and I only just stopped it, it did not have any errors whatsoever!

The initial test in post #6 was with your old RAM 4gb + 8gb... You didn't provide a feedback on that ??? Then later you bought a new set of 4GB x 2 ... These are new one.. there is no point in doing a memtest on these...

You should understand it becomes difficult for us to track what was done and what was the outcome if feedback are not provided.. that's because we dont have access to your system... all we have is a bunch of dumps and diagnostic files to review.

Anyways... just so everyone is clear here below is summary of whats happening. Correct me if i am wrong

1. Of the new Gskill 4gb x 2 .. you were unable to boot after I asked you to disable certain services and startup.. You said

Quote:
No! Nothing! Lights up and fans are going but no post or anything!
Which let me to believe that it was hardware related as you were able to boot with one stick but laggy.. hence the request to do a memtest again.. This could either mean a RAM stick is in fault or the Motherboard slot is at fault.

Now since you have completed the test with no errors.... please answer me this .... Have you done the test by first testing RAM1 on SLOT1 for 7 to 8 passes ---> if No errors ... Next step RAM1 on SLOT2 for 7 to 8 passes ---> if No errors ... Next step RAM2 on SLOT2 and so on ????

Are the NEW GSKILL RAM matched... meaning do they have the same specs ???

Have you reset the Bios to default when installing the RAM's ???


2. You have already run
FURMARK: You mentioned
Quote:
Just ran furmark for 20 minutes and it never went over 80c which is very good I understand.
Did you see any artifact or distortion .... Was the temps leveling at 80C... 80C is high when you run FURMARK.. Snapshot will be good to review.

PRIME 95 : passed and IntelliBurntest : passed.. so CPU and MB should be OK based on what what i see on the previous post...( Though these can somethimes do give clean bill to faulty hardware)

3. Which leaves only the HDD.. Could you post the snapshot of the SMART value using CrystalDisk

Let me know the answer to these.. and then we will move forward to the next step.

And OH almost forgot... is the system running fine now?? No bsod ?? and this is now running with both the RAM's in??
