    I would focus on the RAM. Running 4 sticks of RAM is harder on the motherboard. What is the exact RAM model? There are a lot of G.Skill RAM kits out there with different specs. My guess would be either the RAM is not running at its rated specs or you have a faulty RAM module.
  2. RAM--> F3 1600CL9d DDR3 CL 9-9-9-24 15v
  3. will try to remove RAM to check for faulty module
  4. Did you read through the checklist yet? That's what it's there for.
  5. I would check your power botton connetions on your mobo...
  6. Great checklist!! Theres a couple of things I can try on there...will update afterwards...Thanks!!!
