    Heya Dave76,

    I will run a Memtest86 again since last i did it i got to 5 passes with no errors so will go to 7 and post the results as well as the CPU-Z stuff etc.

    Now i have done the following:

    CorsairLink 2 yup i figured and knew that maybe a problem as i have the Corsair H100i and the fans are so loud and noisy on default settings so i use this software to tone them down Corsair support has informed me to uninstall the USB Dongle which i have done now as only certain PSU's support the driver and can cause problems in the long run, Also later there will be a Windows 8 version.

    AsusSuite i have removed this also checked my drivers and AsUpIO.sys and ASUSFILTER.sys is removed

    Network Magic i have removed since of Aug 2012 they have discontinued this product so will never see another update and it didn't do much except made it easier to access the router so pnarp.sys, pnpcap.sys and purendis.sys is also removed.

    rikvm_38F51D56.sys i couldn't find much on this and CyberLink were no help too, I could not find this also in my drivers folder so i don't know were that hoped too.

    SeaGate DiscWizard i removed as i never use it and downloaded it cause it was with my HDD's firmware update but now they removed it from the downloads section so i did too, So snapman.sys, timntr.sys and vsfltr53.sys are now removed.

    I don't use RealTemp, CorsairLink 2 as stated up above yes, And Game Booster god knows why i had that on there but that has been removed now, But also seems the sys file is no longer in the drivers folder too so i don't know if i managed to remove it during cleanup etc

    Now the last Code WmBEnum.sys, WmFilter.sys and WmXlCore.sys are apart of my logitech dual action gamepad its old yeah so would i have to remove this and buy a new updated control more Windows 8 friendly since Aug 2010 was there last update.


    "Btw when i say the sys is removed i did not touch that folder just scouted it after i un-installed the program using them sys files to see if there still lurking"

    Run memtest86+ for 7 full passes, stop it when it reaches pass #8.
    Each pass runs different tests, so it's important to run a full pass #7.

    Bad news about Link, it was on my list but now on hold.

    Good work on the driver cleanup.
    Let us know when you get the other information and memtest86+ results.

    Oh btw about the MemTest86 should i do it for all the sticks? Cause when i got this computer 8 months ago i had BSOD's due to faulty RAM back then i had 16GB and the store i got it from replaced it for free and did full diagnostics on the newly added ones and said it passed 8 passes with MemTest but just before i started this thread i just rebuilt the computer to newer stuff and used those same sticks but brought another 16GB kit, So should i test the old ones or leave them be since they have been tested and just test the new ones or do both?

    Test first with all RAM cards installed, this will tell you if your system configuration is stable.
    It's best to first test what the system is actually using, if it fails then there are troubleshooting steps to follow and find the cause.

    Okay haven't done the MemTest86+ yet since been working on other things and i remember the last test i did with the RAM took 12hrs for just 1 pass, But here is the results of CPU-Z and the BIOS information you asked for.

    CPU-Z results BIOS voltage results are in attachments below.

    Different brands and specs of RAM can have problems running together. Sometimes they run ok, most of the time they don't.
    Always best to get the same brand and speced RAM.
    Sometimes the same brand/spec RAM purchased at different times won't be compatible due to manufacturing techniques or it may be from different manufacturers. Neither Patriot or Transcend actually manufacture RAM.

    Let's see how the memtest86+ goes, if you get any error, one is too many, you can stop the test.
    If there are errors we can try changing some settings to see if it will run stable, but there are no guarantees.
    Will need the voltage settings that were requested previously.

    Oh lovely i took a screenshot of my BIOS setup and all the voltages and relised my Internal Card Reader and USB flash drives wont read on my computer it says this in device manager...

    Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)


    {Unable to Load Device Driver}
    %hs device driver could not be loaded.
    Error Status was 0x%x

    I don't understand all i did today was install CPU-Z and thats it and bam that happens..

    Have you check the Asus motherboard support site for updated drivers?

    Yeah poped by there and on the Windows 7 downloads section it has USB drivers but Windows 8 they have nothing so very confused indeed and would not have a clue of what driver to get sadly :S since all it says is Generic etc like in attachment also yeah i figured the RAM would be a issue so i will be buying another Patriot Kit so they are all the same.

    Just took a look, it is strange they don't have Asmedia USB drivers for W8.

    In Device Manager what is listed for 'Universal Serial Bus controllers'?

    I would try the Windows 7 drivers but, first make an Image backup of your W8 partition, then make a 'System Restore Point'.
    They should work but you need to be cautious and be able to restore if it all goes wrong.

    You should try a couple RAM settings before you buy new RAM, it does work sometimes.
    The memtest86+ will tell you if there is even a problem with the RAM, run it first.
