Okay after one day I still got a blue screen for memory management...... I've heard these errors can be caused by an overtaxed power supply judging by my system specs how big of one would you guys recommend?

You should be able to get a 500w PSU, a little bigger won't hurt anything 650-750w should be more than enough.

Don't skimp on the PSU, stick to the major brands, Corsair, Antec, Seasonic.
Most of these sights will have a PSU recommendation program, run through it and see what they recommend.
Corsair PSU calculator.

I was just searching for some info on another thread with a MSI board similar to yours. Found some info that might help.

Is it AMD tested memory?
If it's the Intel RAM there are lots of issues mentioned, You need to make sure it's the AMD spec RAM.
Is the memory you have listed on the MSI approved memory list?

You might consider selling them to someone and getting the AMD spec RAM.

There are a lot of the same issues discussed on many forums, you can try adjusting the settings in BIOS and you may get lucky, but the general consensus is they just won't work.

Sorry about the bad news.

Let us know your progress.

Couldn't find a RAM list on your MOBO website, I would call or email them for a list of certified RAM.

They're not much help with RAM recommendations, kinda strange.

OCZ site gave OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 PLATINUM AMD EDITION

Corsair ultra-high performance DDR3 Memory for AMD Phenom II Processors

From the MSI MOBO website.

What memory to buy?

To get the most out of your memory, use two sticks in dual channel mode. If you use 4 sticks, then your memory will work, but only at a lower speed.

If you are looking for performance memory, look for Dual-Channel kits tested for AMD systems, as many are Intel optimised, and the Intel timings are not always suitable for AMD systems. Don't waste your money buying Tri-channel kits, they are optimised for Intel i7 systems, and you'll get better performance using just one or two sticks anyway. And if you're lucky to get three sticks working together, they'll only run in single channel mode, which will hinder performance anyway.

Don't mix and match sticks either. Always use identical matched sticks for best performance in dual channel mode.

For optimal results and trouble free maximal performance it's recommended to use 1 memory stick per channel, as a general rule this always works.
This site said they have a lot of problems with your MOBO and G.SKILL Ripjaws RAM, so stay away from it.

Well guys I think the harddrive may have been the problem the whole time. Sometime last week it got to the point where the computer would not even boot and I could not reinstall windows it would not format for me. I've sent it back and in the mean time I am installing seven on a 250gb seagate with no problems. Could the harddrive really been the cause of memory managment?

It could be a coincidence that your RAM was bad. Memtest reported errors, so there's little doubt there was a compatibility issue there.

In any case, thanks for reporting.

Great to hear it's running without errors.

That's a bit unusual that memtest is showing no errors now.
Let us know if these issues creep back up.

Hope to see ya back here, but not with this issue
