Hi, I've been having an issue with my computer where it crashes after being on for a few minuets. I tried troubleshooting it in safemode thinking it was a virus or a software issue of some kind, but I realized it was hardware. I took it to a local computer repair place, someone I went to highschool runs it and he looked at it as a favor but couldnt give me a definitive answer, just that the test he did said it was memory. I have three sticks of 4gb, so I took it home and decided to try each stick on its own to try and find the bad stick. I tried each stick in each of the three slots (that the schematics say a single will run in) and the computer crashed each time. So I was wondering what are the chances of three sticks going bad all at once? And now I'm thinking that maybe its the Mobo. The computer worked great for over a year, this is the first major issue I've had. I was wondering if there's a way to check if its the Mobo? Thanks for reading.
The ram I have is DDR3 4GBx3 G.Skill Ripjaws
Mobo is an Asus Sabertooth X58
