After an extensive PC problem (http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...cpu-issue.html) I believe I've narrowed my booting issues to be the CPU. I asked an Intel rep to RMA my CPU, and I was given this info:
My memory is rated as 1.65V. Is this really causing my booting issue, or is this Intel's way of trying to get out of sending me a new CPU? I'm thinking the latter, and that I should just verify with them that I've tested it using "compatible memory" to get my RMA?
|The memory you are indicating is not compatible with your processor. All Intel(R) Core(tm) i3, Intel(R) Core(tm) i5 and Intel(R) Core(tm) i7 processors support memory running at a 1.5V no more than 1.60V, otherwise the processor is being forced to run out of its specifications, which will make your processor fail sooner than expected and/or will make your system to run unstable at some point, voiding the processor's warranty.|
