Yeah.. Been running Prime95 Blend since this morning and I have been doing just fine.. I will be running tests all night and tomorrow I will pick up a burnable CD to get Hirens/MEMTEST86+ going . It looks 100% like a bad stick.. I wish the RMA procedure had more details for GSKILL lol. Oh well, I am just glad it wasn't a more severe problem... Unless this starts BSOD'ing me again soon

Yeah, I am in Canada and none of their forms include postal code lol.. And it talks about invoice numbers etc.. I must be bad with forms because I am more than a little lost.

I do appreciate the help though

*UPDATE*

When it rains it pours... I got Hiren's Boot USB going and ran some MEMTEST86+.. First stick made 10 passes with 0 errors.. Second stick made it to test 2, pass 0 with 450 errors.. Wow. I wonder what could have caused my RAM stick to totally fail. Oh well, time to RMA I guess..

Is this failure a stick that went bad or is there another reason for a stick to fail this suddenly / completely? I know that might be a stupid question but I want to make sure this doesn't happen again.

-The only difference I notice is the second slot CAS is 9-9-9-24 in memtest86+ but if I load a stick just into the forth slot (matching blue slot), it is 6-6-6-20... haha

Thanks for all the help through this though. I appreciate it.
