Let me start w/my system specs.
Q6600 cooled by Thermaltke Big Typhoon
2x 640 MB GeForce 8800 GTS
4 GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 PC28500 (only running at 800 not 1066)
ASUS Striker Extreme
150 GB WD Raptor
2x 250 GB WD SATA drives
800 watt PSU
CoolerMaster Cosmos 1000 case
Vista Ultimate x64

Now, my problem is this, Vista is very slow after doing a clean install. I also keep getting 2 different BSOD messages. One is driver_irql_not_less_or_equal and the other is memory_management.
I think my RAM or my board may be going bad. I have run MEMTEST86 on each of my 4 sticks of RAM and it went fine. My RAM is getting very hot, to the point where you can't touch it. I don't know if that could be because of my board or not. Those are my 2 main suspects. Any help would be great.

This may or may not help but it's worth a look:

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
