      This is an issue that ASUS has acknowledged and appears to be working on a fix. We have blacklisted this board in the meantime.

      Try the following build:

          Asrock P67 Extreme 6 is also affected.
          UEFI L2.19 (latest available UEFI / beta)

          - Parallel runs fine (4 passes without problems)
          - robin ka
          - sequential freez after test 1 (CPU core switch = freez)

          Will you contact asrock for a fix?

              The MB has been added to the list.

              By chance do you still have the MemTest86.log file that we can take a look at?

                Here you are.

                The original file is too big, so i deleted something from other PC's test .

                      rem356, can you check for BIOS updates from ASUS.

                        It's the last BIOS update for this motherboard.

                          Looks like the ASUS M5A99X EVO BIOS hasn't been updated for 5 years. Which is a while for a UEFI BIOS. Likely it is buggy.

                            Yeah, it's old, luckily version 4 worked. Thanks for answering.

                              Having issues running the test on a Dell Precision T5600 Dual Xeon system. The software takes a good amount of time to load, starts, and then displays about 1/2" of blue and green bands at the top of the screen before crashing out to a black screen.

                              Here are the specs:
                              BIOS: A14
                              Processors: Dual E5-2643 processors
                              Memory: Current config is 96GB of ECC DDR3 RDIMM (I dropped some memory hoping that taking a bit out would allow the test to run, it didn't though)
                              Boot Sequence is set to UEFI

                              I've also tried it with two video cards, same exact result. First setup was an Nvidia SLI Quadro 500 setup, second video setup was a single AMD HD4650.

                              I'm hoping that them memory test helps shed some light on some buggy issues. The Dell diagnostic says everything is fine, but the system acts weird under load.

                                I am having issues with a Dell T5600 system.

                                My Configuration:
                                Dual Xeon E5 - 2620 processors
                                BIOS version A15
                                40 gbs of DDR3 ECC RDIMMS

                                Tests run fine if I boot up the Legacy Bios Memtest v4 cycling through the CPU's. However, I run into issues when I boot the UEFI v7.5. It loads just fine for me and I can get the menu. CPU multiprocessor selections are disabled entirely stating possible problems with an old UEFI system. When I try to run in single processor mode, it gets to 6% done on the first test no matter which test I start with and then crashes, restarting the computer.
