                                Do a full reinstall next time. I wouldn't trust MS to stay reliable after a full chipset swap. Win 10 would probably suit you better for newer hardware too.

                                  Don't mean to be cruel but re install the O.S. with all applicable patches and ramp up system memory to maximum supported switching off swapfile and then on in separate test rounds. XMP may not work best with swapfile. However as is at least it won't fry! ya i know months after this vid so appologies! perhaps XMP on a small SSD twin RAID stripe with swapfile on that.

                                        Maybe I didn't get it, but why don't you use 2 (or more) normal servers instead of one monster-server?

                                          I wonder if you would got better time if you would let the system run in Quad channel memory mode. I had some issues with Quad Channel memory and xmp on x99 5820k but giving the ram more voltage made the issue go away. While minus the 2 hours if fiddle with voltage to the ram phase control
