Well... Just finished the memory testing off each of the sticks in slot one all with 4-5 passes. No memory errors... So I guess it's now the mobo or the CPU? =/.

Hmm

well then in that case the only other problem would be one of the ram slots on the mobo.... check then using any of the sticks.....

if its just one or two.. slots you could work with the rest of them.... or....if Mobo is under warranty.... get it replaced asap..

Well i've just forked out for a new CPU and mobo. When MemTest started saying I had DDR400 RAM installed I knew it was time to upgrade.

Bought this motherboard: Sabertooth
And this CPU: Bulldozer

I'll run another MemTest with all of the RAM installed and cross my fingers and hope for the best! Will let you know how it goes

Ok this a little confusing. MemTest has got the complete wrong settings for the RAM. It should read DDR 1600, 9-9-9-24. I've checked the BIOS (which is quite posh might I add haha) and the settings are all correct there. Should I just ignore it and let it get on with it?
