OMG!!! you have a spare AX750. Its like saying you have a spare gold mine. That's one of my most favorite PSUs. Its far better than a TX750/850 in ripple suppression and power rating. Dude, try that PSU out the next chance you get.
I know. I built a computer for this guy I work with, but 2 weeks later, the PSU(the ax750) died, and instead of wanting to go through the process of RMA'ing it, he chose to just buy a new one instead(he's pretty rich), and I asked if I could have the one he was going to throw away and he said "sure". Anyways, I went to the Corsair website and tried to submit an RMA, and to my surprise, you don't actually have to show proof of purchase. So I sent it to them (23 dollar shipping, that's why I said "virtually free", but still it's an amazing deal) and they sent me a brand new one 2 weeks later, and it's just been sitting in my room for about a week (was waiting for a graphics card to come in the mail for SLi, which I may now reconsider).

And I have that CPUID monitor open and it does show voltages. I'll list them:

Sensor Value Min Max
CPUVCORE 1.18v 1.14v 1.28v
VIN1 2.88v 2.42v 2.98v
+5v 5.05v 5.05v 5.05v
+12v 12.16v 12.16v 12.16v
+5V VCCH 5.00v 5.00v 5.00v
VBAT 3.18v 3.18v 3.18v


Powers
CPU changes from about 16-22 quite frequently 16.68w 47.31w

Currents
CPU changes from about 15-20 15.01a 38.95a



GTX460 SE
Voltages
VIN0 0.88v 0.88v 0.88v


Sorry it's so messy, I'm typing this on a laptop so as not to affect anything on my desktop. Going to add another stick now.

Okay, I just added second stick and tried to turn it on, but it immediately made 1 long beep and 3 short beeps while the graphics card fan spun REALLY FAST and REALLY LOUD. I'll try putting it in another slot to see if it does anything but I doubt it will. I'll update this post with the results.

edit: Okay, so surprisingly, it did have a different effect. When I put it in a different slot (I put it from the yellow into the black, black being the same as the first stick is in, so I think the dual channel thing matters a bit here), it booted up and it's been running for about 3 or 4 minutes so far and didn't do the loud fan spin or fail POST, so, so far so good. I'll give this an hour as well, but as it stands right now, it looks as if that RAM stick doesn't like to be put into that slot or doesn't like to be put in a different colored slot than it's brother.

edit#2: Still going, just thought I'd post the voltages, this time with an actual screenshot: http://i56.tinypic.com/96ksj8.png

Did you get any BSODs when you had problems?
If you did download this

Just run it and check if there is any crash dumps
post #16 of 23
I'm surprised no one has suggested this yet. But check event viewer. I would also put all sticks back in and get memtest86+ on a USB drive and see if it fails like that.

You always want to run paired RAM sticks in the same colored slots.......

Your original post mentioned a long beep followed by 3 short beeps. Asus uses Award BIOS, and that beep code indicates a problem with the graphics card. There is a phenomenon known as " component creep" , which happens when a component isn't quite seated properly, and the fluctuations in heat ( like after a long session of gaming ) can cause a component to "creep" out of its slot enough to cause a disconnection.

Try reseating your gpu.

Okay, so everything went fine when putting RAM sticks into ram slots 1 and 4 and leaving it on for an hour. No crashes.

So then I put RAM in slots 1, 3 and 4 but then after I tried to log in to windows, the fan started to spin really fast and loud so I pressed the power button and it failed post.

So THEN I put RAM into slots 1, 2 and 4, and so far, everything is okay, no crashing so far. So it's looking like the 3rd RAM slot on my motherboard might be defective or something, but I'll wait and see if it crashes after an hour.

So what do you guys think? Should I send in for an RMA for my motherboard? I built/bought my computer about 2 years ago, and my mobo has a warranty for 3 years, so I should still be able to send it in.

@Spoony

I installed and ran that utility and clicked refresh on it, but nothing popped up in the list (ran it on my laptop first and a couple of things popped up there, but not on my desktop), so nothing there.

@Blitzer

Well so far the blue sticks all seem to be working, just not when they're in the third slot, so I don't think these 3 sticks of RAM are defective. The one with the green circuit board might be though and also may have messed up that slot, but I can't be too sure. I don't think I'll try and test it out, because I probably wouldn't even be able to. I'll request an RMA from G.Skill and get a replacement for it anyways just so ALL of my RAM is exactly the same, even though the green stick is probably fine.

@rottenotto

I tried reseating the GPU like 3 or 4 times, in the beginning, it didn't make much of a difference, although that does kind of make sense, because my previous graphics card was a Zotac GTX 260 amp edition and it was a really heavy card, and quite long as well, so there's always the possibility that it might have damaged the PCI slot, and I considered that, so I also tried putting the card in the 2nd slot, but it made no difference, so it's probably not that. And ALL slots were full in the beginning with the SAME ram type (aside from the color difference in the circuit board of that ONE green ram stick).

Advance options ->choose the directory where your crash dumps are enabled.
Click Start , point to Settings , and then click Control Panel (Start>Control Panel in Vista ).
Double-click System .
Click ( Advanced system settings link in Vista, then --->)the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery .
Make sure, there is a checkmark in Write an event to the system log .
In the Write debugging information list, click Small memory dump (64k) .

I don't know where mini-dumps are enabled, but I did change the "write debugging information list" from "kernel memory dump" to what you said "small memory dump (64k)". So I went back to the program and clicked refresh, and still nothing. The default directory for that advanced options in bluescreenview is "C:\\Windows\\MiniDump" but I still don't know whether or not that's where windows stores dump files.
