    May have found the problem, maybe??
    This going to be a quick version, if ya want more info I'll try to give it.
    I cleared the BIOS, put back in my settings.
    Still had same boot problems, random beeps, random loads ok, random loads and everything is ok. This has been going on for months.
    This enough to drive ya crazy, on the first go around in April, I ran the cpu tests, the mem test, and what ever else that you guys suggested. They all passed.
    The bootup & run problem was totally random, no pattern, just lock up and die with bsod.
    I pulled one ram stick out, rebooted, booted up ok, cool.
    Replaced with that one in slot 1 with the one in slot 2, NO go, it beeped about 18-20 times.
    Pulled ram 2 out of slot 1, put ram 1 back in everything is ok.

    I have Never had a problem with ram in 20 + years, looks like I have one now.
    And I never over clocked it, I just want a stable system that I do not have fool with.

    Now what should I do, the ram is less than a year old?

    Try run memtest86+ on the suspected memory module, with Performance Enhance standard, and XMP enabled, timings on auto, if you get errors than you deserve a replacement for sure, I think it has lifetime warrenty.

    I'll run the test tomorrow, it's working, that's amazing.
    I've been at this almost all day today, I'll take a break.

    Thank you all for the help,

    Yeap, sounds like one faulty module to me! RMA will require you send in both sticks, so be ready to have a spare on hand while you wait.

    Glad to see you found the issue though!

    I have Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 (2ea @ 1gig= 2gig) http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/TWIN2X2048-6400.pdf that I can put in while I RMA the 8500's.
    Still working with only the one stick, no crashes yet.
    Will these work, and what settings would I use?

    Thanx Guys

    Those should be fine, I have the low latency version and never had an issue.
    Just set Performance Enhancee to standard all timings on auto and 1.9v DRAM Voltage, and you should be fine, perheps 1.2v MCH Core if you have any pronlems.

    I have seen plenty of issues with those XMS sticks actually so feel lucky Chike.

    MCH Voltage change should not be needed to run 2x1GB, but it may. I suggest you clear the CMOS and then try both sticks again, first in slot 1+3 then in slot 2+4 if 1+3 does not work. Of course, before doing that after you clear your CMOS go back and load optimized and set your RAID Again if need be, then set your ram voltage to 1.9V then do the tests

    Default RMA'ed ram bad too??

    Well.... I still have the same problems with the New ram corsair set me.
    Would you guys carefully look over my work sheet in post #1 to see what may need to be changed.
    I'm really at a loss as what to do. Still Blue screening and freezing.
    Could this ram be bad also?
    Thanks

    Can be bad ram.
    Same settings as in 1st post?
    Have you tried MCH Core 1.2-1.24v?

    Yes, same settings as in post #1.
    I raised the MCH Core to 1.2v as you suggested that seemed to make it worse. Got the Red mit sceen again also.
    I then lowed MCH Core to 0.950v, so far it seems ok.
    I'll let you know tomorrow, it seems to be really bad at first startup in the mornings.
    That's why it took me a bit to get back to you, testing the settings.
    Thanx
