Yes I have a heatsink and the fan properly plugged in, I've got thermal paste. I've tried one memory module in every slot and I've tried the motherboards integrated video card.

Build it using only minimal hardware outside of the case. also might be a good idea to try the stock cooler, maybe the heatsink is causing the issue, try loosening it aswell. thumb.gif
