That red plus sign was blinking and it apparantly was off moment when I pressed the shutter. Anyway, I made a new download, burned a new CD, ran it and made a new snap shot which shows the plus sign. Despite of what shows on the snap shot, the RAM DDR3-1600 was running at 800MHz and CAS 9-9-9-24.

I don't understand churin it is still showing DDR2 when your board clearly supports DDR3 and you say you have DDR3 sticks in.

Can you check the BIOS mate and see what is listed there because something is very out of whack somewhere.

You may be as well to run these too to exclude something else going on if you haven't already

I don't understand either indeed. I just built this machine two days ago and am running W8 Pro on it. Do you think a virus(es) might already be having a field day on the machine?
The snap shots of the BIOS and CPUZ are as follows:

Churin it might be of help to join up to the 8 forum mate - I have upgraded for the time being to 8 on my main laptop and all things being equal I have given it a good try but apart from the speed mate I am really getting a bit tired of the constant hiccoughs.

So glad I cloned from the 7 SSD to another for this trial and didn't over write the original SSD.

The 8 forum has a lot of members from this forum there in fact it is run by the same admin so there will be no problems.

Why that ISO isn't booting to the memtest though is a real worry.

As a suggestion and just a suggestion and I know it is more expense why not get another drive say a SSD and an OEM 7 and install it? The data you could back up to the spare HDD and / or an external if you need a lot of space but at least the boot would be fast.
I am really sorry that things haven't gone smoothly at all for you being a new build mate I would be so disappointed myself. But if you had that other drive and 7 you could keep both in and swap across either through the BIOS or just changing the SATA cables.

PS Just a thought - disconnect both HDD's and then boot from the disk.

Despite what have been said I have to believe in Pasmark Memtest86 v.4.20 because the release date of the other one or Memtest86+ v.4.20 is 1/25/2011 when the CPU, FX6300 did not exist(release date 10/23/2012). The release date of Pasmark Memtest86 v.4.20 is 3/18/2013. I have just noticed v.4.30 for Pasmark Memtest86 is released today.

The problem I am experiencing with the Memtest86+ must be due to that the utility fails to properly recognize FX6300.

Hey Churin, I notice that your RAM "Set Memory Clock" is set to Manual in BIOS.
Try resetting BIOS defaults.
  • Make note of all your current BIOS settings
  • Go to the EXIT Tab and choose "Reset Defaults" (or similar). Reboot
  • Immediately go back into BIOS settings and reset all your preferred settings EXCEPT for anything to do with CPU, RAM, or any kind of overclocking. Just leave all as default for the test.
Then run memtest again.

Just out of curiosity TV what does that do with the memtest is that still controlled through the BIOS??

No, Memtest is not controlled by BIOS, it is a free running program.

The test is to see if some inadvertent or purposeful change to the RAM settings in BIOS has caused the errors and false readings.

What the OP is showing us is certainly odd, and I can't think of another reason why he would be getting readings like that (other than the two I mentioned: bad RAM, incorrect BIOS settings).

Sorry mate I thought it was odd but had to ask as the thing like you say boots from the disk I was just thrown by your remark re the BIOS and was thinking maybe there is a connection.

Now I see churin is running that darn Passmark test again - churin please stop that one mate it is not the test you are meant to be running use this link and see that tutorial again or we shall get nowhere. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool the test you want is .org NOT .com mate.
