  1. My system
    EVGA 790i mother board
    Win 7 64 bit
    3GB corsair ram (3 sticks) DRR 1333, 1.5A 9-9-9-24
    CPU Intel 8400 3GB
    new build with old parts
    New 700W Power supply
    AVG virus scan, nothing there

    What I have done"
    MS hotfix install for win 7
    memtest 4 passes on all 3 sticks one at a time, all passed with no errors
    Use 2 sticks at a time and left one out but froze all three test
    Checked settings in Bios for ram, all is well and was 1.5V now 1.525V but no luck
    Cleaned out dust
    Checked all connections twice
    Skyping with brother I get freezes all the time
    One time Blue Screen of Death, all others no BSOD
    No message when it frooze
    shut down a few un-necessary services in MSCONFIG, still no dice

    pretty much at my wits end at this, can anyone give me an idea where to go next?
    thinking of buying new RAM at this point
