Windows 7: BSOD - Constant reboots on new system

I recommend that you test all sticks together.
If that fails, then you test each stick separately in the same slot.
Once you find a good stick, then you can test all of the slots with that one good stick.

If the mobo requires other slots to be full, just test each one as you add another stick
Fill slot 1 with a good stick and test
Then fill slot 2 with a good stick and test
Then fill slot 3 with a good stick and test
Then you can move onto the other slots with other, known good sticks.

Well, I am RMA'ing all the ram. 6 gigs seems to work at the 1066mhz speed (vs the 1600mhz). When i set it for hte rated speed, i get freezes after 10 minutes. At the under rated speed, the system works fine. The other 6 gigs seems to be a problem.

Fortunately, I have a second P6T mobo that takes the same ram so I can do some testing when the new ram comes. I can also test my current mobo with the new ram as well (different brand).

I am hoping that the new ram solves the problem otherwise its either the board, or i guess the CPU?

It's hard to say with the P6 series of boards.
I have 2 problems with mine:
- an issue with BSOD's when trying to sleep/hibernate
- an issue with the CPU fan controller

Either one of these errors can resemble CPU or motherboard issues - so then it's just your best guess.
Good luck!
