    You can test with all four modules at once, but if there are any errors, you should test each 2 x 2GB kit separately to see if the error is due to one module. Once you know that all the modules are OK you can then install the operating system.

    I wouldn't install your former C: hard drive until you've run the manufacturer's diagnostic software to ensure that the drive is OK.

    is there any way that i can clean this ssd as the only drive in the system with the corrupt version of win 8 on it? i just got the full install which is a system builders version and it says something about not being able to install over other versions of win 8 which i doubt means anything but i'm curious if can do this

    Search and download HDDerase.
    You can find instructions on how to use HDDerase.
    Connect your ssd to another computer and you can restore your ssd to "like new" condition by running HDDerase.
    There are several other methods that can be used, but I think that HDDerase will be the easiest.
    Be careful that you don't erase the wrong drive!!

    I'll be out for several hours and I'll check to see how you're doing when I get back.

    honestly i think i'm making this more complicated than it needs to be. the install should format the ssd and do a clean install. on ce i get this up and running i'll do those tests keep in mind the mem i have is brand new

    Brand new memory should ALWAYS be tested first thing.
    If there's a problem with any memory modules, you risk possibly corrupting your existing drives or mucking up a new o/s install.
    For most o/s installs, it's best to let windows format your drive and for your new boot drive to be the only partition that windows can "see".

    You'd be amazed at how detailed new o/s installs can be to avoid unexpected problems.
    You can usually find good tutorials in the ssd manufacturer's forum.
    If you run into any problems, the first thing that I'll probably say is to perform the steps I've already given you if you need to reinstall the o/s.
    Take a look at http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...-capacity.html to see how complicated an o/s install might be.

    See you in a few hours.
    Have fun!!

    IMPORTANT: Make sure that you set SATA AHCI Mode to AHCI in the bios Integrated Peripherals panel BEFORE you install your o/s.
    This will ensure maximum ssd performance.

    well this install went no better than the first but at least this dvd is fine. it went thru the second step which is preparing the installation files or something like that and i would get the error 'windows installation encountered an unexpected error, verify that the installation sources are accessible and restart the installation.error code 0xc0000005. the second time i tried the install i first selected advanced options and ten chose format so i know the other version is gone. tomorrow i will try the hdd. if that works then it's the ssd. i was online with microsoft the whole time and he said it sounds like a hardware problem. yeah really. i need a drink(s)

    Details!!!
    Were you running with optimized bios settings? Fail Safe bios settings? (never use fail safe settings)
    How much memory was installed? Did it pass Memtest86+ testing? If yes, how many loops?
    Other than your optical drive, were any other drives connected when installing your o/s?

    You might need to try installing the o/s with only one memory module installed.

    Fail safe bios? Why? optimized as in the settings i posted.
    All 4 sticks were in, why would memory stuff an install? i can pull some out.
    can't/don't know how to do memtest with no desktop to get to.
    other drives were plugged in the first attempt to install but pulled the second

    I did the format because the install finished the first time but i got a blue screen noting an error which is why i did the format the second install try
