well ya that's what i was getting at it does the job but only skims the surface! ok so i started off with 1 2gb stick on the board i ran it for a total of 21 hours with 52 pass's no errors so i am now trying both sticks right now so i will let you know what happens then. but here is the thing i did not pick the parts out for this pc i just built it i don't see the ram anywhere in this mother board booklet for being correct for this board.

motherboard: asus P7P55D
Ram: ocz30b1600lv4gk

i know the motherboard booklet says do not put any ram over 1.65v on the board and this ram is 1.65v.

if this test comes back with no errors i will be lost... sigh

thanks for all the help guys hopefully i can learn something new from this lol

ok after putting the second stick of ram in i did not even get 1 pass done and there were already over 1020 errors

test: 4
Failing add:0040200080-1026.0mb
Good:db99eb9d
Bad:db59eb9b
Err:00c0000

test: 4
Failing add:0004020038-1026.0mb
Good:db99eb9d
Bad:db58eb9b
Err:00c1000

test: 4
Failing add:0004020030-1026.0mb
Good:db99eb9d
Bad:dbcceb9b
Err:00550000


to sum it up the
First test: i did i had 1 stick in Dim-A1 (no errors 52 pass)
Second test: i had both sticks in Dim-A1, Dim-A2 (1020 errors 1 pass)
Third test: i am ruining now but i took out the stick from Dim-A1 (it has made it threw its first pass with out any errors)

i think the problem comes from having both sticks installed on the board at a time can that be timing issues?

We have limited it down to 3 possible causes: a bad motherboard, a bad stick of RAM, or incompatibility between the sticks and board.

Make sure it isn't the 2nd stick of RAM. Run Memtest on that stick only, in Slot 1.

I suspect it will pass, however. Most likely the sticks are mismatched.

Try setting the RAM timings to 9-9-9-24, and then test both sticks at the same time.

ok well i have had the second stick in slot A2 and have had the test runing for bout 4 hours now no errors so the sticks are not bad i know that for sure so ill have to take a look at the timeing in bios but im pretty sure its going to be incompatibility because the sticks of ram are not mentioned in the motherboard booklet what ram would u suggest for me i need 4 gigs at least
