....tell your local PC store that you want them to actually test your Rig when they finish repairs...:
1. Run Memtest 86 for a few hrs
2. Run P95 Blend Test for a few hrs...
If you can get though these first two test with no issues you won't have any BSOD's simply booting into Windows!!!

keep us posted..
ran memtest for windows overnight, when I got up this morning it was at 140% with 0 errors.

As for p95,

FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.

this is only on core #1, I have never let it run overnight, I stopped it after 20 min.

However I cannot easily accept this as a problem with the processor since it could also be due to the cpu not being on the list of cpus that work with my motherboard, so some incompatibility could exist...

anyhow the program does not make a stress.txt so i cannot consult it...

any other cpu testing programs that can be recommended? I want to see if something else can give an error.
I took it into Bestbyte this afternoon and did my best to explain to the old guy there what was going on and to check everything, even if it takes a few days since this is an odd issue.
