Both vso and hava are required. But for testing purposes, I can uninstall them and reinstall later?YES

Set the ram back to stock.

You can check gpu with Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Then run memtest,if its possible live it overnight.

Okay,

Things I've done:

Uninstalled vso and hava.

Observations @ 24/25C ambient

1. Ran only Prime95 (CPU + Mem Blend) for 8 hours - CPU temps peaked at 64C. No errors / shutdown.
2. Ran only Furmak for 3 hours - GPU temps peaked at 79C. No errors / shutdowns.
3. Ran both above together for 2 hours - GPU temps peaked at 80C. CPU temps peaked at 73C (too high?) But no errors / shutdown.s

Seems like problems occur only when gaming, and all my hardware seems okay. But gaming does not last beyond 20-30 mins.

Next i'll set the RAM back to stock and stress it with memtest86+. But like i mentioned earlier, it had already passed about 3 hours of memtest with 0 errors @ 1600 8-8-8-24.

I'm lost.

Set the RAM back to stock.

Try to play,post back here the results.

Then run memtest.

Dont run 2 tests the same time,just one at the time.

Okay, so I backed out the RAM changes and it has worked fine all weekend. I've gamed rather extensively, and I've not seen one single lockup or restart :) It's funny, since it had passed about 3 hours of memtest86+ with that setting.

Anyway, it's possible that my board was undervolting the RAM @ 1.5v, whereas most reviews of the RAM tell me that 1600 8-8-8-24 is achieved @ ~1.65v.
I'll try to volt it up to that next and see if I can gain stability on the rated speeds.

Maybe i'll also try reinstalling the software (Kaspersky / VSO / Hava) and see if it's stable.

Thanks again Panais for all your help.
