While that doesn't 'prove' it is not the memory, it is unlikely to be a memory issue. And yes, I have run the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and no problems were found.
And no, no overclocking setup yet, tho my BIOS supports it and I am itching to play with it, LoL. I had played with it a bit in Win7 using the Gigabyte Easytune setup, but soon thereafter I got Win8 and a new SSD and just haven't had time to play around with it yet.
So it works in Win7 x64 but not Win8 x64, yet the x32 version works in both just fine.
Run MEMTEST86+ (an ISO is available to make a bootable CD. Also on UBUNTU Live CD).
