I have the m4a79xtd evo mobo, with 6 gigs of corsair dominator memory, AMD phenom II x4 955 cpu, WINDOWS 7 64 bit and evga 8800 gtx. Corsair HX 1000 watt modular
System has had periodic lockups,maybe a couple weeks apart, and i've gone through 3 8800 gtx cards in the past 3 months.
1st card was original and the next 2 were remanufactured replacements. After a week or 2 each card would artifact at post and have colored lines on the display. Cards were running at 51 C.
My question is, do you think that since this memory is not specific for this mobo, would it effect the video card and cause atifacting and whatnot? This is what EVGA tech support believes
Also i know that this mobo has an amd chipset and i am running nvidia graphics. I am getting a 260 superclocked to replace the 8800 gtx and would hate to have this card take a crap if its the memory causing this problem. I have let memtest 86 run for 9 hours on 7 passes with no errors before the system locked up in the 9th hour.
Any help would be greatly appreciated since if the next replacent goes bad, i will be responsible since evga believes that it is my memory.
