Checking for loose power cables would be the first thing to do. Have you gone through all the trouble shooting guides? (it's a sticky)

Andrew,

It seems we posted right about at the same time; I just edited my post. I am still going to RMA the RAM because MemTest86+ found 240 errors from it in about 2 hours and 15 minutes and then froze during the test. I will be going in and firmly securing .all. the power cables, it's just that PSU connection I wonder about now mainly.

[EDIT]
On second thought, now that I am more aware about proper timing settings and DRAM voltage, would you recommend I reinsert that original GSkill RAM, set the proper timings and voltage, and run MemTest86+ overnight again? In case, as you said earlier, the settings could have had something to do with the RAM errors. Thanks.
