Now things just went from bad to worst.

Removed 3 DIMM leaving just one on and the computer didn't initiate. Connected a 2nd DIMM, all went fine, run Prime95, spent 10 minutes testing, didn't crash the computer. Turned the computer off and on once again to do another test with those same 2 DIMM's, from that point on I just have a blue screen with a stop 0X0000007B. Already connected the 4 DIMM and I just can't seem to surpass the blue screen.

Damn, nothing like starting the week with a computer problem.

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

You sure you didn't knock loose a hard drive cable or power connector? Are you sure you didn't change anything in the BIOS, like changing the SATA controller from SATA mode to AHCI, or vice versa?

Is there an additional message on the BSOD screen, like a driver or .sys file? It says inaccessible boot device, right?

How To Fix STOP 0x0000007B Errors (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE)

I don't understand how the memory could be related to this inaccessible boot device error. But it should be an easy fix, try the URL above or google for other examples. Basically if you boot off a USB stick with Windows installer on it, the repair option should fix it (no need to reinstall).

But the good news is, it sounds like you may have confirmed there was a memory problem and can send off the bad stick for replacement.

That's the problem the only thing in the blue screen is

STOP:0x0000007B(0xFFFFF880009A9929, 0xFFFFFFFFC0000034,0x0000000000000,0x000000000000)

It does not say anything about inaccessible boot device.

No changes in the BIOS? AHCI vs SATA mode?

Maybe when you changed the memory, the BIOS reset to defaults and you need to change the SATA controller mode again.

I remember looking something regarding the SSD in the BIOS but can't remember if I actually changing it. I'm going to investigate.

I would check the SATA controller mode. If it is SATA, change to AHCI. If AHCI change to SATA, and see if that solves it.

It changed to IDE actually. Weird, although truth be told, I also didn't connected the DIMM to the corresponding slot when only one is used. Maybe my motherboard (Asus P7P55 WS) didn't like that and change to default, but then again, what does a RAM DIMM has to do with the sata connection...

So I initiated the Prime95 tests now to each DIMM. I don't need to wait the entire time that the test takes right? If something is wrong it will take noticed right at the beginning of the test, correct? At least that was happening yesterday.

I was forced to remove the fan from the CPU cooler since I couldn't reached that first DIMM. When will these guys build bigger motherboards with sufficient space between slots, although, I did buy a huge cooler

I'm a fan of Noctua as well.

As for the prime95 test, usually 15-30 minutes is enough to find a failure, but you should let it go a couple of hours if you can.

If it is actually a memory problem, you need to be sure to be running 'custom' and setting the memory usage to 90% of available memory.

Are these settings OK?

Actually, if each DIMM has 2GB then I need to set for 1800MB instead of those 1600 that Prime set automatically.

So hardware it was.

These problems are hell to find. I once had to disconnect the power on and reset buttons from a case to a motherboard after weeks of problems. Annoying to have replaced the motherboard first. But memory drifting out of spec is notoriously annoying.

You may find that any 2 sticks work but all 4 won't or some combination. I have one computer running with 3 sticks (on win32 fortunately) because I didn't want to replace the ram and 4 sticks kills it.

You get the idea though ... in the end just buying 100% new ram may be simplest.
