Go here, down load and install prime95, run its torture test it will test mobo, psu,cpu,ram, and heat .

If you can run prime for 6 to 8 hours with out it stopping or failing then all this hardware is completely stable, durring the first hour or so watch the temps they will increase but if they get to high prime will fail.

oh, goddamnit.

MATS+ failed.
INVC failed.
LRAND failed.
Stride6 failed.
WMATS+ failed.
Says the name of this test is Unknown. What the.... Runs and inverse coupling test using data patterns tailored for the memory in this system is the description. After it ewnt to the next test, the title show up as MATS+. That was odd.

bad ram.

Oh crap.

Thats not memtest 86 is it? I think thats MS memory tester

Memtest 86

But anyway, I thought you said the system was running with no lag what so ever.
Are there any problems?

It wasnt....

But it should pass mem tests with no problems. And i was only testing to XP login because that was where i was having the most problems, but perhaps it wasnt running into the problem area until further in bootup, i dunno. I also got LOTS of lag whenever i loaded a CD. Ill run memtest.

Try backing off the ram timings even more and set the memfreq to 50% and rerun memtest

Got memtest to run but it found HUGE amounts of errors....

With the ram from my computer, which should be ok.

Ill probably bring it to a local store who im friends with, and see if they can run a memory tester.

You want me to manually increase the memory timings (as in, underclocking them?)
