    thanks for the tip zenosincks,

    You were right!!!

    memtest86 is showing 47 errros, 0 ECC Errors.

    Does it tell you which module(s) are bad, and which are good

    or will i have to remove them separately and do trial an error?

    Remove all but one module and test them individually.

    ;) You're welcome, webpop.
