Ok so I've been elbow deep in this system for five days straight, I've torn it down and rebuilt it, all hardware seemed fine. I went through the walk through for installing win 7 from this site( thank you for that) I still had a blue screen error on update even using a USB win 7 USB. But...it's all downloaded. I can run borderlands 2 with a mmo running in back ground. No blue screens. Borderlands doesn't like me to OC GPU. It runs perfect on normal GPU settings. No crashes , everything optimized. Still takes 12 secs to boot up. Everything seems stable, have msi OC at first level. Can't edit to figure out OCing. And eventually have sli going(broke ATM) crossing my fingers... So what to do next? Read up on OC?

I'm still having issues. Starting to get overly frustrated. Any help out there? Do I need to repost somewhere else?

Just when I thought I had it, it all fell apart again.

The BSOD I get all lead to memory or GPU. Memtest86 has no errors for memory. I've run all the sfc scannows, disk checks. Nothing. 3dmark 11 passes. Prime95 on CPU seems fine.

Only other info I have is when I run prime 95 to test a little of everything it shuts off right away with a hardware error. This screams memory does it not? Could memtest86 be missing it?

I've used three different new ssd/hdd, same errors.

Just lost, my keyboard is resilient, only other thing I can say, It should have broke from the smash I gave it.

I'm in over my head....please advise. I'll get any info you need to help.

Is your cpu overclocked? What's your bus speed currently at? Sometimes having something other than 100mhz will cause in stability in PCI lanes, etc.

I would get rid of the overclock and test for stability.
Make sure your memory is set to the correct timings in the bios. It is possible that the ram and the mobo dont lilke eachother... Is the memory on the supported ram list for the mobo?
How are the cpu temps under load?

It might be the SSD. Go into the SSD forum and post details about your problem.

The memory, according to mb support and memory support are supposed to work together swimmingly.
The only overclock is Intels turbo to 3.9, I've even turned that off with no results.

I've tried multiple drives including an older one that I know was stable, same results. Sfc scan, disk scans on them all with no errors.

When I run prime95, as I mentioned, I received an error right away, all eight workers stopped immediately. So I have to assume memory, I took memory out, and retested one at a time. One of the sticks gets errors but not every time I test it, odd or no? I tested each stick in each dimm a few times each. So I put the good stick back in and restart. Everything seems stable, no crashes, no bsod, games play etcetera. But I'm apprehensive, I've gotten it to work for hours at a time flawlessly. Does it matter which dimm I use with one stick? Mb book doesn't show placement order for one.

So I ran prime95 again with the one good 4gb stick, 2 workers crash and 6 go for an hour with no errors. What does that tell me? I have another issue? Or can not having enough ram create those results? So as of last night it looked like it was a bad stick of ram but I'm still getting errors in prime 95. So I think it's safe to say one stick was bad, or going bad, hence false positives. But what is my new error? It says its a hardware issue on prime95 but even after multiple tutorials I'm not confidant on what I'm reading in prime, not completely.

If it is just memory that blows my mind, such a inexpensive seemingly solid piece of the puzzle, one bad stuck can cause so much chaos, I've spent days hunting down a 30$ splinter? I hope so, but still, that's maddening.

After an hour of prime95 stress the temps are stable at 49-54c averages.

The memory is 1866mhz, what it's supposed to be, XMP on and off I tried both for tests, one thing was the timings in memtest86 read 6,6,6,10. But in bios I see the 9,9,10,9 that the memory claims. I feel I'm close, I think it's all memory issues. Just need help narrowing this down. Thanks for responses.

Usually you'd want to use the XMP profile. Check that your ram is running with the voltage it requires. Often voltage defaults to 1.5v, and yours may be 1.65v.
Also, did you test each ram stick separately with memtest? Do about 2-3 passes, not just 1.

I agree it's probably the memory, although it could be due to motherboard or some bios settings.

I have XMP on. According to patriot memory support tech 1.5 is correct at 1866mhz. It seems I can not update VRAM without turning on OC genie on msi MB. They said upping to 1.65 is ok too.

I did test the ram separately. Only one had errors. And everything seems ok, however prime95 still finds a hardware error when run on 2 out of 8 workers. But as of now everything seems to work fine with the one 4gb stick, but prime has that error popping up....

In memtest86+ it seems to stop on one pass, do I have to restart it each time or is there a setting to just keep it going?
