Good luck, hope that new MOBO works.

It's always risky to get an open box, they are returns

Let us know how the new board install goes.

yes I tested each stick (4 sticks total) in each slot (4 slots total) individually everytime and ran a memtest86 everytime for 5 passes with each stick individually.

Each individual test came up fine (with the exception of the 3rd stick being in slot 1 and the PC didn't boot).

With 3 or 4 sticks in, memtest86 comes back with a lot of errors.

I changed BIOS to manufacturer specs, 9-9-9-24 2T 1.5V

I also changed the NB voltage slightly a few times to try and stabilize things with 4 sticks. Each time the same crash occured.

Will do, thanks all for your patience and help through this all. I'm hoping this is the end of my issues.

I think it is safe to say the problem has been fixed with the new motherboard.

CPU temps running at 29degrees at 3.9GHZ
Ram is at 1600Mhz

Haven't had a single crash yet in over 4 hours (previously I was getting crashes about once every 30 minutes or 45 minutes).

I'm a little hesitant to proclaim this until a few more days goes without issue, but I am pretty confident the issue was resolved with replacement of the motherboard.

Lesson learned - never buy open box mobo.

Glad to hear, so far, the new board is running smoothly.

Hard lesson to learn, but I'll bet you won't forget

Let us know if it continues to play nicely with others or if it doesn't.
