so i went into the bios and tried changing the voltage to 1.6v and came back to the cpu-z and it still reads 1.5v. I've ran multiple tests with memtest86 and the memory has cleared every time. do you think itls time to invest in some other maybe more reliable memory? attached is a text of the Cpuid report

my computer has crashed, but I'm not getting anymore new dumps.

I have seen cpu-z misreport voltages but i cannot confirm that as fact, if it says the voltage is 1.6v in the bios you have to believe that, also set it then reboot then go back into bios to check its held ?

It is also important to say that everything points at memory but I would move cautiously as I don't want you to rush out and buy new ram only to discover it's something else such as a faulty motherboard etc ?

did you confirm you are running the latest bios ?

can you source branded ram from the approved list at a decent price with the ability to return it if not needed, possibly borrow one stick from a friends machine or ......... ?

To answer your last reply, yes, I do have the latest bios and the 1.6v setting did sick in the bios settings. In the bios the memory reads it is running at 1.57v. when it is set at 1.6.

Anyway I think I found my problem. today I had some time to tryout each stick one by one and low and behold, one stick caused a BSOD and the other two boot up fine by themselves. I think I will call it a bad stick for now and keep an eye on things. I'm kicking myself for not checking this 4 months ago.

I'll let you know if anymore problems pop up.

Thanks for all of your help.
