    You likely did not burn the ISO as a Image file, ISO must be burned differently then all other DATA

    Ran the Orthos Blend, got to 5min35sec and then system hangs.
    Changed "Write to precharge delay" from 4 - 6, gonna try orthos blend again

    I found a post at www.asktheramguy.com - claiming to be official testing values of the XMS2 mems, they state that Write To Precharge Delay should be value 15, translates into 8 in this case, that make sense to you?

    I burned it as ISO with Imgburn on a CD. Memtest starts to Load but doent complete the loading, and Orthos hung at 5min35sec, I changed write to precharge from 4 - 6 and now orthos is at 12 min no issues

    Not easy for u to know the level of my pc skills but I do know how to burn an ISO hehe :p

    Im just new to the overclocking business and memory subtimings :)

    Ahh well I wasnt sure if ya knew or not was all.

    Did you download the newest Memtest86+ and burn at Slow speed? If so, then I dunno, you got a floppy you can use? If so you can make a floppy bootable stick and run memtest from there using the floppy version >>>
    HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool - v2.1.8 Download - EXTREME Overclocking

    As for your setting mentioned, like I said for that setting you just have to test and see which is better, but that one in particular will not cause errors unless you try 1 or 2 and does not affect performance so much either. Orthos failing on you is likely voltages being off. Only way to know for sure it is not ram is run memtest though

    Here is the newest version and floppy incase you were unaware of where it be >>>

    Gonna burn a new copy of memtest, I already had the latest. I did burn the first copy when mu comp was unstable cuz of the PSU thing though, any way will burn a new copy now and test.

    Voltages off? I am at +.0300 on the rams and +0.1 on the pcie, fsb, (G)Mch

    Could be CPU voltages off, and or MCH may need a bit more the +.1 sometimes you need .125. And yes of course you could also have some ram timing errors and or MCH needs more. Which it could be since you ran orthos for a hour before with no error on Mostly CPU stress

    This is getting real annoying, I burned a new copy of memtest @ 2x ... I get the same problem, memtest starts to load. It looks like this in Dos:

    Veryfying DMI...

    LOADING............................

    and then no more more, I tried booting on other bootable media with no problems

    now I am really confused, I know I am burning it correctly

    Yeah, that is how it should look when starting. Hmmmmm

    You may have to burn it again with your settings on stock maybe? Something is outta whack that is for sure!

    That or you could just create the USB version and use floppy files and see if you can get that to work. Which it should I have ran Hirens boot cd which loads it out of DOS using the floppy files

    What is your Boot order set as in the BIOS?

    Actually here, this is all you need >>>
    Memtest86+ For USB Key (Pure DOS) - 2.01 Download - EXTREME Overclocking

    Add that to a USB bootable Stick made with the above USB bootable link, then boot from USB. IF you get the same error I think something may be set wrong in your BIOS for Boot settings and such
