i have run the memtest to check my memory which it passed but was wondering if the memory slots maybe still faulty ? the test doesnt test the memeory slots only the RAM itself ?
I was thinking of swapping the 4 sticks into the other RAM slots just to eliminate the RAM slots as whats causing my random lockups - I think i have them in the recommended slots in the Manual.
Another thing I wanted to try was perhaps taking out the m.2 drive and silverstone PCIE adaptor card and reinstalling windows 10 on a normal SSD just to eliminate this side of things.
If i cant find this bug (which i am starting to think its the motherboard) looking at new board/cpu - was considering the ASUS ROG Maximus XI Extreme with i7 8700k and a ASUS Strix 2070. I have 32GB Corsair DDR4 RAM from another PC already and was going to reuse my SSD and m.2 drive and CPU cooler and case
any thoughts on this combination ? - I manly game and do some video editing. Currently I have the RAMPAGE IV Black edition 32GB Corsair DDR3, i7 4930k CPU and GTX 980 graphics card
