I changed to a 5960X today, and although I have not had time to play with this thing much, 3101 is doing the same. Now, I can't get 3200 to post and when it does, it drops channel C again - 2666 is the best so far... Could be my MB, but flashing back to 1701 with the 5960X behaves as it always did.
Is that with 64GB? That's a load! With my 32GB I went from 2101 to 3101 with no timing changes, but would have from three BIOS back.

5960 - 6950 ... sounds like dyslexia
