Question Faulty MOBO, CPU or RAM?


Oct 28, 2016
Got some faulty parts that have just been taken out for better ones but still want to reuse them but can't seem to work out whats faulty, windows 10 would always fail at one of the installation steps but I worked out that it wasn't the ssd cause it did the same with a different one so I've narrowed it down to the MOBO, RAM or CPU, when I try and run memtest it doesn't get very far in before it reboots so it gets stuck in a bootloop, the MOBO is an MSI B75MA-P45, the CPU is i3 3220 and the ram is 4gb corsair vengeance @1600 mhz
