Sorry that you are experiencing memory problems, but its cheap and easy to fix and your BSOD problems will, most likely be over.

How long should I test 1 stick at a time?

You should run each stick at least several hours. Many test all of the ram overnight for 8 hours.

Still testing ram.
Testing the last ram module and I still have to check each slot. Their is a down side of having a lot of ram. That would be the time it takes for testing.

I have tested all modules one at a time. The one bad one that I didn't have installed at the time of the BSOD is still bad as it was 2 week ago. That took up 16 hours.
It passed with two ram modules installed and I'm testing now with 4 modules installed.
I'm posting all this just to let you know that I'm going to do one hellofa ram and motherboard slot test. I want to find the ugly nasty little bugger that is causing my problem.
I intend to be writing a book with this system and I don't want to have 4 pages wrote and a BSOD remove everything before I get it saved. My three brain cell would get very angry.

Jack what size RAM DIMMs do you have?
Your specs say 24GB but I can't figure out how to have that on a Quad channel board without having one channel not fully populated.

I started out with 32 gigs. I had to remove 2 modules about a week or so ago because one was bad. I'm now at 24 gigs.
I do believe as long as the ram is installed 2 sticks at a time it will stay in quad channel.
I'm running a memory test on that computer at this time.
I will check and post when done with the testing.
I have got about 25 hours of testing done and about 5 more hours to go.
I have 8 sticks of ram @ 4 gigs.; 6 are installed now. Three hours into the test and all is good so far.

OK, I'm curious about 4 channel, does CPUz or MaXXmem2 report you in 4 channel mode?

Oh, for testing single RAM stick they should also go for at least 8 passes too. Memtest86+ uses different values in each pass and some errors won't show at 3-4 passes at times.

Done memory testing I think. Six modules installed and all pass.
CPU-Z shows quad channel mode.
My BSOD happened when I was doing nothing but online on this Forum or watching Hulu.
I cleared everything Event Logs, Mini Dumps ect. and will wait for another BSOD.

Use the computer, in your normal fashion. After about 6 BSODs, submit to us. Each BSOD gives a small clue. More than one is needed.
