According to the RAM information that you provided you are using 1.9 volt RAM. So I would strongly recommend testing with fully compatible RAM as the one listed at:
Also if the RAM is not the issue, then I would recommend testing the processor in a known working and compatible motherboard to make sure if the issue follows the motherboard or the processor.
If you do not have a spare motherboard to test with, perhaps you can test the processor in a friend's motherboard or by taking the processor to a local computer store for them to test it for you.
Finally you can try doing a CMOS clear as instructed at:
memtest86 been done! Successful
Win7 Ultimate : Memory Diagnostic done in 2pass! Successful
OCZ 667mhz PC2-5300 Manual Setting at 5-5-5-15 1.8volt.. Working!
This ram can handle both 1.8v or 1.9v no big deal..
I've heard of a possibility of the Esata controler drivers aka Intel Esb2 Sata AHCI might not be right and it would be required to Turn off the Esata feature in the BIOS before installing news drivers before enable it again.
I will check it out tomorow since my comp is being tested atm at Tech Center.
Restarting issues can be due to many reasons, it is difficult to point out whether it is software issues or hardware issues. You will need to do your test by yourself. I am going to point some hints for you to do.
- It may be something short-circuiting the board or may be the board is already short-circuited by the front panel connection. So try to test the system out of the chassis. Boot up the system using a screwdriver by short-circuiting the right pin (check on the TPS for information, dont use the front panel header)
- Replace the RTC battery.
- Use latest BIOS
- Populate only one memory and see if it makes any difference.
- Try with some other model memory not same make.
- Cross-test with another power supply.
- Cross-test the CPU (another compatible CPU model)
Note: Your memory is on not the list of compatibility. Even though, you can make it work by changing the settings, it does not mean that it is validated.
- One of the most common causes of Windows shut down problems is a bug in Roxio’s Easy CD Creator (particularly version 5)
- Another common cause of system restarts is the Wake On setting.
- Check the Windows Event Log if there is any errors.
- Make sure to have the latest uptodate patch and service pack for windows.
All the best,
