    im going off personal experience i had to slacken my timings with xp but not in vista maybe my ram is a bad batch i dont know but it was only thing to do to be stable in xp,vista was fine

    Thanks Psycho101. I've considered the possibility of incompatibility. This RAM is highly regarded, and I could swear I'd seen others using it with our MB, but not sure anymore. If I had other RAM here, I'd try it for sure. It could certainly all boil down to that.

    FWIW, I have a post about this on OCZ's forum as well, so we'll see what comes from that.

    I'm going to have to digest your memory test suggestions. I've already tested each card individually in slot 1 only, as well as as a trio, using Memtest86+ v.4.0. Guess I could try different slots, didn't know that was ok to do. But I'm just not seeing any RAM failures at all under Memtest86+.

    The only other reason I'd suspect RAM is because it's failing Prime95 particularly under blend, which uses lots of RAM.

    have you prime95 tested with timings on auto?? any crashes? also what does bios set timings at on auto?

    P95 fails with auto timings, yes. Auto timings are 7-7-7-16 @ 1.5V. I have to change then to 7-7-7-24 @ 1.66V to prevent sporadic reboots, but it still won't run P95 for more than a few minutes without a failure. I've tried timings as loose as 10-10-10-24.

    Problem is indeed RAM. Tested each chip individually and one clearly can't handle it. Currently running the other two dual channel and everything's hunky dorey. Been blend testing for 4 hours and counting - no errors.

    Dammmit! I had intended to do this test before posting.

    BTW, the good guy at OCZ suspected the RAM right away.
