    Windows 8 OEM


    Memtest has run for 8 hours, with no stability issues. I will wipe my disk with secure erase, and re-install windows new, as I am confident that this is the issue. Will report back

    Windows 8 OEM


    Final Update: I have reinstalled windows 8, wiping the disk with Secure Erase and installing it fresh on the SSD, currently have the 16GB of ram in @ 2T, and have run memtest successfully. I'm pretty sure that the AMD driver uninstall utility was the source of my problems, as it would remove sections of my control panel when it ran, directly after a fresh install of windows. I would recommend that anyone needing to uninstall AMD drivers use another program or do so manually until that issue is resolved. Thank you for the help
