Alright guys. Here's how much of a n00b I am. My buddy came over to take a look. I missed one little thing that made a world of a difference. I forgot to up the volts I was delivering to the RAM. It was set at default... this caused my system to freeze. Just like it did when it was new and the voltage was at default. So we upped the voltage and stressed it. Everything is fine...
Wow... ummmm... solved...
If you don't mind... I'm gonna take a moment to hang myself. (JKJK) xD
You're learning, and getting it done! Good job, buddy!
