Windows 7: First build crashing

Your problems are probably being caused by incorrect timing settings in the bios. They become more evident with both sticks in.

Try to find the default specs of the ram and set to match. After your system stabilizes, you can write down those settings and tweak (overclock) from there if you want.

15 minutes is definitely not enough.
Please heed this advice..

TGSoldier,

Thank you for your response.

I understand that 15 minutes is not a very long test in the grand scheme of things. But the system went from crashing within the first few minutes of the stress test to completing a 15 minute cycle. I think that is a significant improvement and it’s providing more clues to the root of the problem. Would you agree?

Absolutely not. Try at least two hours for a short test.

Is this an indication that a longer RAM test proved faulty chips?
