In WSUS Offline did you select to download/install the C++ Runtimes and any .NET updates and service packs (3.5, 4.0)?

OK, that's good, lets us see what the RAM testing turns up. Yes please test all RAM individually in each slot, I think your board has 4?

I also lean toward a bad board but I don't know if that would prevent the SP1 installation.

Maybe it's having problems accessing memory from slot 4? Causing bsod?

And yes the board has 4 slots, should I test dimm 1 and 3 also even tho I wasn't using those slots?

It may be, all the RAM is controlled from the CPU Internal Memory Controller (IMC) but the board has the circuits for the RAM. The slot "wiring" is all inter connected somehow through some 960 contacts for four slots.
Running the single stick in each slot should help pin-point the problem. Test all four please.

Ok, so to recap,

The first test I ran with Stick 1 in DIMM 2 and Stick 2 in DIMM 4, got 2 errors on pass 3 and 1 error on pass 5

Next

I tested stick 1 DIMM 2 and stick 2 in DIMM 2, both for more than 8 passes, both tested fine.

Next

I tested Stick 2 in DIMM 4 for 33 passes overnight, this tested fine as well.

Currently running stick 1 in DIMM 4. Will post back with results.

On a side note, is it possible to get a false positive on these? Fluke errors? Because so far all the other tests are coming back fine.

Test DIMMs 1 and 3 two, as I tried to point out, it's all part of the CPU/IMC circuits.

Yes, I understood what you were saying, so far I have only been able to test DIMM 2 and 4 so far. =*( it takes so long to test these stickes one by one.

Ok so update for today is both sticks tested without error on dimm 2 and dimm 4. All for more than 8 passes.

Am running stick 1 on dimm 1 now. Will leave it running over the weekend as the computer is at my office. Will report back monday.

Have a great weekend guys.
