I don't understand: are you implying that a "newbuild" cannot have a bad RAM stick; or a component which is inadvertently misconnected; or a funky CPU?

Sorry: I, for one, was only trying to assist in response to your plea for help.

I was unlucky to have had two bad ram sticks (defective) on a new build. I also had a new mobo that had a short which would cause it to randomly go off.
Just because the parts are new does not mean they are good.

HI Runckle can we get a parts list off you that way we might narrow down the problem your having. It can be any thing and the more info you provide the better it is for us.

I've phoned Cheap laptops, LCD TVs, Netbooks, PC Monitors & more | Ebuyer.com and they told me that the RAM is not suited to the CPU and Mobo. So, waiting for new RAM. Will come back to this if RAM didn't work.

Both Corsair and ASUS have RAM QVL on-line for your mobo; you might verify this for yourself.

The only other thing I am going to add is that RAM is matched to the mobo not CPU. Regardless of the CPU, your mobo is going to be RAM specific (type, speed, array, amount). Now you may say, I have this that or the other CPU of which I am going to take full advantage of by using this that or the other RAM but the RAM must be compatible with the mobo and the CPU compatible with the mobo (socket).

Good luck.
