Here is as well the pics you asked me to take in blackbox. i guess ilil put the results for stress test.
yes I would personally check the other slot and then repeat the process with your other stick then you will definitively know if it's a bad stick or slot , or if it is simply the combination of two Gskill F3-1066CL9-4GBRL sticks that is tipping the timings out of tolerance and crashing your system ?

Will do ickymay. Currently the the test stress is running on memory slot b_2 with the memory stick from the fist test. Left it overnight and its at 80% so far. I will test slots A_1 and B_1 with the memory stick i have yet to test that is in my static free bag. Do I just test the slots for Stage 1 in prime 95? I dont know if im supposed to go pass stage 1 or if it passes it everything is ok. This stress test takes a while lol.

Its still testing. I selected stress test instead of primenet. Heres something odd, I turned off the pc and put the memory stick i had yet to test into Dimm_1 slot. Booted up the pc and it crashed o.o I got a blue screen so it restarted fine. I go to run the stress test and the first time i tried to launch it failed. So i tried it again and it started running the self tests. What i noticed different from this test and the other two i did with the other memero stick is when im opening the browser or hell moving the mouse it seems to be freezing sort of lagging. With the other test I could do other things with out any slowdown which is rather odd. It seems its struggling a little bit. So far on the self test it says everything is passing though.

this could well be a bad stick or slot, memory tests don't always highlight bad ram when a stressed system will

Hmm should i let the stress test continue, like i said so far is passed the tests but i did get a blue screen on start up. Unless you want me fiinissh the testt then onn the same slot i got the crash use the the memory stick i got good results with in the previous two tests. BTW is the stress test the same as primenet? lol cause im not sure if the stress test tells you its done seems rather long and i dont see a % complete anywhere @_@

what you need to do is be able to is consistently force a bluescreen with a specific ram stick/slot combination then we can decide the best way to fix it

don't be scared of the bluescreens as they are windows way of protecting itself and its integrity and you are ideally working towards solving the problem, which now almost certainly looks like a bad stick or slot ?

The stress test is exactly what it says it doesn't really have an end it simply runs the computer at 100% to stress the components and you need to use it until you can faithfully reproduce the crash ?

It is beginning to look like RMA the ram might be the simplest solution (although it might be just one bad stick), but It would be nice to be 100% sure you don't have a motherboard fault first ?

Thank you for all your input. So far with the latest stress test on Dimm_3 it has passed. The only crash i got was with dimm 1 with memery stick. Also not im prety sure if i run the stress test with both ram sticks in, it will crash havent testted it but i notice everytime they are both in they do. Im pretty sure its not slots since it has passed all tests. So what wouuldd your next suggestion be?

can you make it crash by using the same stick in dimm 1 ?

you need to determine if it's the stick or the motherboard ?

where did you buy your components ?
