It could very well be the timing but it may also be the voltage setting. find the specs for the memory from their website, timing and voltage and enter your bios and make sure the voltage is set to the right parameters. The timing isn't as critical as correct voltage. I also wonder if changing the memory positions may be causing the error. My mother board made me use slots 3,4 not 1,2 kinda strange but when I switched them no more bsod. And remember windows 32bit systems will only use/show 3.2 gigs regardless of how much physical ram is installed. I hope this helps you and good luck.
What kind of fan do you have installed? Cpu wise? it sounds like your cpu is overheating when your playing games. Due to high graphics. Try getting a better cooling system to stop the shutdowns. With the ram, is it because your Gpu shares some of the ram? This is common with chipsets and some GPUs.
Sorry or posting twice, im having some issues of my own here ;)
Please connect jPw1 to 4 Pin 12v, this supplies power to CPU. Than enter Bios & find Boot settings. Set the cdrom as boot 1 & hd as boot 2. Check the jumper on the cdrom, as it is the only device on secondary IDE controller it should be set as a master.
It is better to install a fresh copy of windows with a new motherboard. Put your windows CD in the cdrom & the system will boot to it. And your on your way. You can install the drivers for the board after windows has been installed.
