    Ok well I started memtest and it only went for about a half hour and my computer froze, so I went in and changed my DRAM voltage from 2.1v to 2v. I then went into Static tRead value and it showed it changed to 8 on the left but was manualy set to 6 as before, not sure why this is, so I manualy changed it to 8 on the right for channels A and B.

    I also changed CMD to 2 in advanced timing settings cause Gskill recommended this, hope I did the right thing.

    Not sure if I'm doing things right, hope so, I just dont want to burn anything up with the voltage changing im doing. Gonna try memtest again ><

    thx in advance for any input ^^

    Yes, I meant tRD (Static tRead Value)

    Sounds good, is it all working properly now?

    *edit*

    Sorry I posted at the same time it seems.

    What model is your G.Skill? I can go look up the voltage needed.

    And yes you may need to use 7 or 8 tRD instead of 6 depending on the ram itself and other settings.

    What is your exact Gskill 8500 (1066mhz) memory type?
    + also what is printed on the little stickers on the memory.
    read thru all the customer replies on newegg for your particular memory type.
    There will be some "noob" replies in there but u should get a feel for the memory.

    Check out http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/memo...vs-bios-27283/

    for memory basics:(if you do decide to use memset for testing dont hit the SAVE button in windows)

    Im assuming you just want things running at stock for now?

    Since the pc is booting up ok and it seems to be memory that is causing you problems.try leaving most things on auto except the main memory timings and the memory voltage.On the voltage itself.
    The mbrd is probably applying around .02 V less than you enter in bios.
    This may go as high as .03V when testing/underload.
    It does for me anyway,you will need some monitoring program to check that ,or even Easytune 6.

    I thing your memory performance level will have been set to "turbo" in bios initially..try setting this to "standard" just to see if less strain on the memory will remove any problems.

    Its also a good idea toput your full bios settings in a post.(copy a template using cntrlC from another ud3P post ,do your own post,paste in the template using cntrlV and edit the settings to match your own.)

    G.SKILL-Products this is a link to the exact memory I have. It says 2-2.1v, I have it back down to 2v because my computer froze again when I set it to 2.1v, but not sure if thats why it froze.

    And yes I dont OC at all, I just want to run everything stock.

    I do have the Memory Performance set to Standard also.

    So far no errors, but memtest is going slow for some reason, only was at 240% in 2 hours on both memtests' that I was running, I usually start to get an error around the 1000%+ which is several hours in.

    Not sure what else I can do to make sure my memory is performing well and no errors besides using memtest for several hours 8/

    thnx again guys, hope this is remedied soon ^^

    Please use Memtest86+ 2.11, not HCI Memtest that you use in windows. Although that is a good program, I use it myself, I do advise the bootable Memtest86+ for initial testing >>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    If you do get errors and feel you need more help please give us your full settings and we will advise back. Please see the link in my signature for BIOS template to give us your settings.

    There's not much to say without seeing your settings.
    Post a screen capture of MemSet (can be found here) main window and EasyTune advanced votage tab. And fill the template in this post with your settings.
    Agrrr I was slow :-( you can find memtest86+ 2.11 image where MemSet is too.

    Version 2.11, CD ISO Zip. Then extract once and burn as a Image.

    Or USB Key if you already have a bootable USB Stick made.

    Ok so I ran Memtest86+ for 12 hours and did 20 passes and no errors at all, I'm assuming that my memory is running ok now. I did not have ECC enabled in the test, wasnt sure if I needed to, I just put the boot disk in and it started going with default settings.

    So now I am wondering what is a good test or tests to check my systems reliablity and stability to make sure the rest of my system is ok?

    Here is a template of all the settings I have currently and hopefully they look all ok.

    thanx again for all the help ^^

    Running ~10 runs of Intel Burn Test, followed by 12 hours of Prime 95 blend should see you having a pretty darn stable machine if it passes without error.

    If all goes well you can likely start over clocking a little if needed. Gaming performance will likely benefit if moving up to 3.4GHz-3.6GHz, even with an 8800GTS. The GTS 512 is still a pretty capable card. The only real way to more gaming performance from there would be an upgraded GPU. Something like a 4890 or maybe even a pair of 4850's/4870's if you can get a cheap deal. This will see frame rates double at least in most games (geeralisation but roughly correct).

    If you're not a keen gamer and performance is K for you then you can just kick back and enjoy a stable PC.
