I will let you know what happens when I get home tonight. Thanks for your help so far!
Just unplug your PSU and pull out the CMOS battery, cycle the pwr switch to disharge all of the juice.

Me think it is well worth swapping memory. Have had the same frikking error myself and it took me 2 mobo's, 3 windows installs and a frikking new cpu at the time to figure out it was a faulty memory module (sometimes you want to club yourself on the head with a blunt object, really)
Try Ram first before anything else.

Another question.

Could the random crashes be from the CPU overheating?

I don't know what the debug code would look like. Problem is the BSOD comes under low load and high load.

Its possible, did you check your temps in the bios after reseating? Thats the first thing you should do.

Depends on what temperature your cpu is running, or your core for a instance. Download everest or Speedfan and check out your temps.

Dell gimps everything in the system. They turned off the mobo sensors so you can't monitor CPU and mobo temps.

If you touch the bottom of the heatsink near your CPU is it very hot while on load?

I'm guessing its about a 50% chance that your ram isn't in all the way, or your CPU just needs reseated.

I'll check - I reset the heatsink once with the new CPU and I don't think it was too warm.

What is going to be the best way to attack this when I go home?

Should I go after the CPU first, or memory first?

Here is what I think I will try

1. reseat cpu, reseat ram, clear cmos. run and see what happens.

2. if i still get bsod replace ram

3. still problems I would assume there is a problem with the CPU

Ok as of right now I have reseated the CPU and RAM and cleared my CMOS. I left everything in my bios at default except I enabled RAID 0 for my two 250 gb hard drives. I have just finished doing a clean install of VISTA 32bit and so far seems good. I am downloading drivers as we speak.

I did encounter one odd thing. After vista booted for the first time I got an error saying Windows Modular Installer had an error and had stopped. What the hell does this mean and what could cause it?
