    Small FFTs - max 72c 14:02:00
    Blend - max 62c first run 73c second 00:22:00
    Inplace large FFTS - max 66 c 00:10:00

    Prime95 stresses 3 things:
    - RAM
    - CPU cache
    - memory controller (on the CPU in i5 processors)
    By running the 3 different tests (Blend, Small FFT's and Large FFT's) you can get a better idea of what's causing it
    In general, if it's fastest to error in Blend - it's most likely the RAM (and testing sticks one at a time will help to rule them out)
    If it's fastest to error in the other tests - then it's most likely the CPU (and CPU stress tests are needed to confirm it)

    I have run windows diagnostics for each memory stick for 10 passes and an extended one. I have also run for all mem sticks for 70 passes overnight, no errors. I can run the cpu stress test again.

    I presume that the times in post #41 are the time that it took to error out.

    I suspect the CPU - but would like to know if you've run MemTest86+. If not, I'd suggest running that rather than the Windows Memory Diagnostic.

    If it passes all sticks, then do several of the CPU stress tests to see what results you get.
