You're welcome and good luck. Ripjaws is nice RAM.

I won't use anything but G Skill. It's the only technology company I know of that has excellent tech support.

Windows 7 x64 SP1 / Ubuntu 11

Yeah I was contemplating between ripjaws, xms3's and dominators. Finally settled for the Ripjaws.

I'm hoping its not my board (GA-P67a-UD3-B3), Iv'e heard some bad things but after I bought it, its ran great so far (on latest bios).

Soon as my ripjaws come I think i'll run 10 runs on each dual channel then each module in channel one on 5ish runs to check

Memtest runs in passes. Each pass is 9 tests (if I remember right), but you really need to run 8 passes. Each pass tests a different part of the ram. I know it takes 6-8 hours each time, but you will never know until you do it. And remember, you have to run the tests so that you are testing the Dimm slots as well as the ram. Just follow this tutorial on how to run memtest. But, I really don't think you will have a problem with G Skill. If you do, look up their forum and post a question in the ram section. Someone from tech support will answer you within 24 hours on weekdays.

Looked at that guide, I'm guessing when it passed with the broken module before, it passed because it was testing a still functional 'section of ram'.

When the G-skill comes I'll test each dual chan with 7 passes then using one module I'll test each DIMM with 7 passes. If it passes that should rule out a DIMM error.

Thanks for the help!
