increase voltage to CPU and ram by one increment re test still think it to do with Ram EVEN if you think the ram it self is fine but the board maybe undervolting it (had this issue with some Geil ram few years back)

On the ram volts... When in bios the volts are on normal, and then you can click on normal and it gives you the option to increase it by 1 or 2 or 3, when you click 1 it then shows the total volts which is higher than what the ram volts should be? Should I still give it a try running like this?

Why increase the CPU volts?

Also... Is there anyway to test the CPU?

Yeah you can swap it over to your board and try running it. That should tell you right there if the CPU is bad. while it's rare it's certainly possible that it is.

Hmm I could do that... But that would involve taking my motherboard out of my CM690 lol... And taking off that huge V8 haha. Not something Im looking forward to.

i used to get IRQ error on my overclock increased voltage all fine now similarly with ram sometime if crap cpu or ram a little more poweer will make it stabole

Ok ill try the voltage increase just slightly...

Check the Voltage in the BIOS is set to the correct voltage for the sticks you have.

Also maybe worth checking your Temps in the BIOS.
^ this is good sound advice ^

If I were you I would make sure your temperatures on your mobo and cpu are running at or below the upper limits.

When you mentioned funny video that indicated to me that you may have a heat related issue causing your mobo to hick up or not work as intended. Gigabyte is known for having a few models that were not so good and caught fire. I know of a person her at OCN that had one catch fire on him.

In any case, if the temps are fine then you want to check the volts as mentioned by japps2. Now if the volts check out A OK in the bios or better yet by testing them w/a Digital Voltage meter and your PSU is working up to snuff "new PSU's do come defective every now and again" then I would try to manually set the timings and voltages of your ram.

Additionally you could try to underclock the CPU w/a bump in the votage to the CPU just to make sure it's not a power issue to the CPU as well. Some times mobo's will over or undervolt the CPU and ram depending on the board and it's voltage regulation circuitry.

I know I'm all over the place but it's really hard to diagnose a PC problem w/out it actually being in my hands so I give you a lot of things to try all at once.

As mentioned before, Memtest86+ is the BEST IMO for testing Ram. You can use it on a floppy drive, LIVE CD or even a USB Thumb Drive Scroll to the bottom of this link till you get to the installer links for Meemtest86+ 4.20

Good Luck.

Yeah I ran memtest86 on his ram (in my working computer) last night and it was fine...

When i get home Im going to bump the voltages up one notch for both the ram and cpu... I have already tried setting the exact volts and timmings etc in bios and it didnt help.

Does Hwmonitor monitor motherboard temps? Cause I can get that running and run prime to test? What temps would I be looking at...

I did notice that the cpu temp gets to about 58 ish running prime which is quite high, so I plan to re do the HSF as something isnt right there... But 58 degrees shouldnt be causing a crash now should it?

Before you start bumping voltages you might try updating the BIOS. You shouldn't have to fiddle with voltages @ stock settings. It's not beyond the realm of possibility but the 955 is not that demanding of a CPU. If a BIOS update or downclocking the RAM doesn't solve the issue, it's a pretty solid bet there is something wrong with the board.

And yes HW Monitor does track Mainboard temps.

Oh yes and I'm assuming you built it with a stock cooler and the 955 is not lapped. 58c running Prime95 with the stock cooler is about right, depending on the Ambient temp of course.

I was planning to update the bios... But... I realised it came shipped with the most recent release lol.

Im thinking its the board to... It might be an issue with the ram slots etc... But I highly doubt its the processor...

Heres what I have planned for tonight testing wise:

- Putting my other mates Corsair 400w PSU into the system (I know this one works mint) to eliminate the PSU as the problem.
- Bumping the voltages a tad and test
- Underclock the CPU a fair bit and test
- If none of these work then Im going to put the problem pc processor into my pc and test

One question... If I put my processor into the problem PC... Is there any chance of it ruining my processor if the board is indeed bad?
