    Well how I run memtest86+ is all preference, and how you do it is too. I do a full test by just letting it run once, then a do hour or so of each test #2 and #5. If 2 passes for a long time then you are close, if it is going to fail it will fail on 5 for sure

    When I am just changing/tweaking one setting at a time I will do a 1/2 or so of #2 and #5 then after a few changes I will let a full sweep run or two, depending on how much time I have at hand.

    How to select tests >>>

    1. First press C

    2. then 1

    3. then 3

    4. and finally select the test that you want to run

    5. press Enter

    6. and then 0 to get it running

    There is one cool thing about GA BIOS's most people do not use, Profiles. You can load a profile of YOUR stock/stable/not overclocked settings and use that when you are not tweaking/testing. You can have up to 8, not sure how many for your board, but surely at least 5 or more.

    On the main screen of the BIOS push F11 to save a profile (Set of settings) a box will appear and you just key in a name for it. Then to load a profile you push F12 on the main screen and select one then F10 to apply.

    So you can set a default or stable one, then save it. Then start making changes and go back onto the main screen again and choose save then name the next one, working or testing something that you will know is different then the stable one. Just be sure when you are saving that you dont save your changed settings over your stock profile or you will get all confused, I'v done it a few times so just keep a eye out what line is highlighted when you hit save. Once you get in there and see what I mean you will understand better and get the hang of it in no time

    Use your stock/default for daily use until you get a overclock profile stable, then you can name it something like 3.2 stable and use it whenever and so on

    I just got a blue screen, still using the stable settings you had suggested. I will run memtest the way you described to see if I get some errors.

    Immediately after the BSOD, I ran memtest, and within the first few seconds of running it, I got 7 errors.

    The output from memtest looks like this:

    Error Confidence Value: 209
    Lowest Error Address 00113bf2814 - 4411.1MB
    Highest Error Address 00000000000 -0.0MB
    Bits in Error Mask : 0000000002
    Bits in Error - Total: 1 Min: 1 Max: 1 Avg: 0
    Max Contiguous Errors: 1
    Errors per Memory Slot: 0: 1 4: 0 8: 0 12: 0
    1: 0 5: 0 9: 0 13: 0
    2: 1 6: 0 10:0 14 :0
    3: 0 7: 0 11:0 15: 0

    The errors came in Test 1 (7 errors) and Test 2(1 error).

    After running Test 5 alone for 40 minutes, I got 26 errors. It seemed to add an error every 1.5 minutes or so. They were evenly spread during the 40 minutes testing.

    Exactly what settings are you using? Please post them here it makes my life easier as I look at tons everyday and not sure which you are using as I suggested a few. This way I can see exactly what you are using and possibly see the issue.

    And like I said before crucial has known issues with GA boards so you may never get them to work properly, but I can suggest things that may help..

    So lemme see what you are using

    Set this manually to 100 ALWAYS >>>> PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)__100

    I see you have what looks like left side settings or are those the settings on the right side and you just left out the left side ones?

    Never mind I see you have ram settings in AUTO mode, which I told you will give you errors for sure. Also set CPU on manual as well so the frequency is not jumping around with Speedstep, unless you have TM2, C1E, and EIST off, either way best to set manually

    Please use this for stock

    I'm sorry, when I was writing the settings down, I forgot to change that one. My ram wasn't on auto, it was set to 100.

    I did change my Rank Write to 9.

    I suggest you change them all to the highest settings I posted above to see if the ram is dying or not, or going to ever work in that board

    I have another computer that I was going to upgrade a few of the components, and I am wondering if I might be better off using this ram for that computer (Asus MB) and maybe buying ram that would better behave with this MoBo?

    I looked through the Memory Support List, but was curious if with your experience you might suggest a brand/model of ram that you have seen have the most success with the GA-P35-DS3L.

    Yeah that would be better Idea

    That ram list is old and needs updated BADLY

    Any Mushkins or G.Skills would work perfect, I suggest Mushkin.
