    I decided to read through your thread again as the Event logs weren't helping much and the thought suddenly struck me - when you bought the new parts and fitted them did you do a clean install of windows? Usually it's best to do a clean install whenever fitting something like a new motherboard...

    Yes I did.

    I havent had any bsods since I took out 2 of the ram sticks, so I'm beginning to think I might actually have been the ram.

    When you say the system no longer fast boots, how do you know? Is the check box still ticked in the Power options section of the Control panel?

    Well. It seems to have fixed itself. And tbh I was judging it unobjectively. When it fastboots, there is no loading circle after the post and it actually booted much faster.

    Doesn't seem like it. I think we fixed the problem. Thanks for helping me with this.

    I just want to confirm it was a single faulty memory stick. Since removing it I haven't seen any peculiar behaviour.
