About a week ago while playing skyrim the computer crashed, and the dram light was solid(mem ok). Restarted and all was fine for awhile then it did it again. Downloaded memtest came back with about a billion errors. So went stick by stick module by module, and came back with no errors. Checked drivers all seemed good, and uninstalled graphics card and reinstalled with up to date drivers. Now the cpu has a bent pin. i heard that could cause it but that happend like 7months ago and didnt start acting up till now? Also bought a new stick of ram and now change. Could it be the mobo? not sure what im missing. Also psu was replaced 4months ago.
Yes it can be a bad memory channel on the board, then again the memory controller is on the CPU! If you have a 4 ram slot board try the ram again in single channel, that is the same channel you tested it in.
