Have you tried running Furmark Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark ?

Also try running Ungine Heaven Download Unigine 'Heaven' DX11 Benchmark 4.0 | techPowerUp On the set up, run the extreme pre configured settings. They will look like this. As soon as you setit, press run, then when it starts press benchmark in the top left. But watch your temps on both tests.

You are right, in the dropdown list where I have extreme, try basic instead, or don't run it at all.

I do not see it listed on Asus QVL list http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...report1010.pdf

I don't see it on Crucial's list Computer upgrades for ASUS ASUS Motherboards M5A78L/USB3 from Crucial But, if you let Crucial scan your computer, you may get better results than I got.

Also, the Asus QVL list is only the ram they have tested, which does not mean that any ram not listed is not compatible. That sort of leaves you in limbo. But, that is the same way it always is with any board. Personally, I would think with 9-9-9-24 timings and 1.5V, it should be compatible. What I think has little to do with what Asus will say though.

No, it won't tell you. But, if it is not compatible, you should get errors running memtest86, I would think. That's what incompatible ram does and what makes it incompatible.

Compatible or not, Tech support always says the ram is not on the QVL list. That's always their excuse regardless if it is compatible or not. Again, Their QVL list is only the models of ram they have tested. Most of the time, it is old ram and what's on their list, you couldn't find if you tried. It's just their excuse.

So if i get no errors with mem test then should that mean that ram is not my problem for my bsods. I mean if thats the case then what is the next best possible cause for them any ideals
