I was in the process of answering your questions on said pc when BSOD'd Bad Pool Header! I only had Kingston to start with, I then bought G-Skill just to be sure! I have tested the G-Skill in each slot and together for more than 8 passes! I just got another crash BTW this wasn't a blue screen though it was coloured lines across screen! I have reset bios and then changed timings to correct values and voltage! The RAM was a pack of two 4gb sticks and are the same! The temp was stable at 80c no distortion or anything like that! As for crystaldisk I can't seem to get it running long enough now to even post this! I'm using my iphone to reply to you here!

Thank you and we will wait for your answers before replying!!

Coloured line across the screen is not a good sign either ..Graphics card with 80 C ...not a good sign....Could be related... but i will wait for your answers and the crystal disk snapshot..

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 ????

Yes I have done this

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

Yes they are out of the same pack

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

I reset it then changed the values to the correct timings and voltage

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.

I will do the test again now and take a snapshot.

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

Here is a screenshot of CrystalDisk

Run it until the temperatures stop increasing; usually less than ten minutes,

Remove the Radeon HD and use the on board graphics.. Connect the monitor to it !! You MB has Hybrid CrossFireX™ Support which uses both onboard+Radeon together for more performance... not sure if this is enabled in bios...

But run the Furmark with onboard graphics.. let me know what happens. post the screen shot as well
