I have these modules ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277) in BIOS everytime I try to increase the multiplier for the ram from x6.66 (1333) to (1600) I can not boot the PC.

Currently I have the RAM running @ cpuzf.png

Can anyone give me some insight as what I should do? I am using the F6 BIOS

Loosen tCL, tRCD, and tRP to 9. Tighten tRC to 33. If this still does not work, try the tCR at 2T.

Tried just having one HD in the Gsata chip.. exact same issues so we can rule it out.

Its really weird.. sometimes its absolutely fine then the next day its back to being its very worst again.

Changing the memory clock settings did seem to help a little but I can't be certain..

back to the drawing board im afraid.

My first UD5 had really random issues about freezing at POST when detecting hard drives, even if none were plugged it. It also exhibited a really, really poor throughput (2MB/S typical). I RMA'd the thing, they sent it back, I RMA'd it again, and they sent a replacement, which has been rock solid since. My only complaint is GB's utter lack of BIOS updates since the new year. Try running some HDD diagnostics, and see how it goes. Mine was the inverse of normal (random spikes to normal speed, staying low). If it doesn't get better, might as well try to RMA it and take a stab at something more stable. It's either going to be the board, the CPU, or the RAM at this point...but I still point the finger at the board (maybe I'm a tad gunshy).

That's for the PWM area but I'm not sure about the temps.

This is the third board ive tried, the second of model after RMA the first, they've all had strange problems I couldn't fully identify.

The only component in the whole system I havent changed is the CPU or PSU
its a blackedition so thats where my suspicions now lead

I must've lucked out, actually getting a good one the second time . The first one was extremely flaky, at random.

Sadly, I had to dismantle the water cooling today. The CPU block developed a clog caused by....lint. It was grayish lint, which leads me to think the spare room it was being assembled in was extremely dusty. So, all parts have been washed, rinsed with gallons of distilled water, boiled in distilled water, and finally, stuck in a plastic bag until the inline filter arrives to hopefully prevent any of this in the future. Now that it's apart, I can take better pictures of the individual pieces, how it fits together, and all of that good stuff for those who want to throw their UD5s under the drink (euphemisms and metaphors abound).
