Hello all, here to give an update.
still having problems, however no more BSOD. Just the monitors go black and video card fan spins up. So I decided to run memtest again. This set of RAM had passed memtest overnight about 2 months ago. However, could have gone bad since.
I started memtest only to come back home and see my screen black and the video card fan about to fly out of the card. Same thing it does in windows. Now my question is the following. Does that indicate the RAM is bad, or could something else have caused that?
I am running right now with a spare kit of DDR3 I had put away and its fine so far running linx. If it fails in windows then I'll move to memtest and see if the RAM fails there. However, that's only if it fails in windows.
