I would begin by double checking your installation (motherboard, power supply cabling, cpu & thermal paste, fans plugged in...), then removing any overclock, updating the bios, and then running memtest on each stick of ram individually.

I would definitely reset everything to stock settings and try again, then run memtest to make sure its not your memory, but first make sure you set your memory timings and voltages properly, if you set it to auto it will only give them 1.5V and if they need 1.6V they will throw errors and cause prime to fail

ill check the memory individually and make sure the memory timings are set to auto in the bios

No, you dont want them set to auto, you NEED to set their timings and voltages manually, auto does different things on different boards and doesnt work with all kits and most higher end kits need slightly more voltage which makes it less likely to work properly.

oh this i sounding hard ive never set voltages and timings on ram before

all i know is i have ddr3 ocz platinum ram which at a quick look is running
9
9
9
20

but i think ive seen ram with a 24 with the last number any ideas on what timings this kit needs

Its 9-9-9-20 at 1.65v for that RAM.

Funny thing though, Newegg doesn't seem to have any OCZ memory just SSDs.

when i search my rams P/N on ocz's website its says
7
7
7
20
with 1.65v
its real confusing even when my ram has 9-9-9 @ 1.35v written on it
any ideas?
