Is there anything I can use to test the RAM in a better way?
Yes theirs piles of software based ones,you can do the rounds on this topic if you want,just do a net serch and you'll find piles.
My self i only do one pass when using one not 6 hour runs as well theirs hardware based testers, mostly only pc repair shops have them and their costly but better at detecting problems and last theirs the old trick of just pop in to the bios and drop the speed on the ram and loosen timings, if this fixs the problem then you know it was the ram that can't hold it speed, as well the more ram dimms you use and or the more channels you use "single vs dual vs triple vs quad" the more latency you have to use to keep things stable and the less you can overclock the ram.
Auto config SPD memory doesn't take that in to consideration so you have to setup the ram by hand at times.
Can be something related to some voltage change from the psu when passing from heavy load to idle
logically that would make sense, turning everything off on this topic in the bios and or windows would be a good way to test this topic, just run it all at full power for a time and see if that changes anything.
Can be some "energy saving" features that I ignore from Nvidia or Intel?
probably all of it, its just for saving watts and power and keeping heat levels down, kind of thing that makes sense for a laptop but something that in years gone by desktops didn't have.
I will also update the bios driver asap
Ya the new UEFI bios are kind of beta and its a new deal, old stile bios i don't update unless i have a reason to, like the bios on this computer i don't even know what version it is or if theirs a newer version out their for it but my self i have no problems with the computer so i haven't updated it, though all my usb went weird on me some time ago, maybe ill do a bios update just for fun and see what happens.
Ps whats taking so long on the prime95 topic lol ?
