Thanks, you too buddy!

I have 16GB and it takes about 9 hours to do 8 passes.

So I left it testing over the weekend in DIMM 1, 88 passes, no errors. Testing in dimm 4 now.

Is it possible to only get the errors when the ram is running in dual channel only?

I suppose it is possible, which if so, I think would point to the board.

I'd tend to think mismatched RAM??

So dimm 4 tested no errors. I wanted to give installing some updates a try with 1 stick in and see what happens, so far I was able to get 3.5.1 and 4.0 .net framework to install without issue, I am in the process of trying sp1 with 1 stick in dimm 4. So far its going, its about half way through, I'll post back if it does work or it doesn't.

The ram came in a set, g-skill ripjaws. 2x4gb dual channel

At this point im ready to send the board and the ram back and hope that resolves the issue.

This would/should validate the RAM being OK.

You could, if ya want, try them both in slot 1 and 3 even though not the recommended ones and test. I suspect you will get errors.
I've had real poor luck with MSI products, others have good.

This is my first experience with MSI, I've never bought from them before, I was able to get sp1 installed with just the 1 stick dimm 4, I'm going to try and see what happens when I put in both sticks.

I'm at a loss here guys, it seems like I only get the errors when both sticks are in, that is the only time I was able to get any errors, the ram and been extensively tested using only 1 sick at a time in each slot, I was not able to replicate the errors.

If I put both in and get errors, it would be your opinion that it's the board? I can't think of anything else.

That's my take on it, since both sticks pass by themselves so should be fine. I'd would like to see a memtest with slots 1 and 3, if you're up to it. Both stick with errors should be a bad board.

Sure why not, I've already left my office so I won't be able to put the test to run until tomorrow. But on a good note, I've been able to install almost all the windows updates, they are installing as we speak. Sp1 installed just fine with 1 stick.
