I was agreeing with you, "QFT" = "Quote for Truth"

Every review out there shows little difference between 1600Mhz and 2133Mhz regardless of the CAS settings.

OK boys and girls ... GO EASY on the NEW Asus Max4GeneZ GROUP OWNER will ya', I hear he's a nice guy and is usually trying to help even though he may not have all the answers.

Also I'd like to pay my respects to Kvjavs for starting up this group in the first place, and it will always be HIS GROUP if he ever wants it back. He did a hell of a job, and things just never panned out for him to get this great little Manley Man of a MotherBoard , and I think he's just gotten too busy taking care of his daily life to really maintain this very active group anymore, so let's wish him the Best and a Big Thank You for getting the ball rolling.

So I'm kind of having the problem described in this Anandtech thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/29...es-weird-sound. Specifically, the system sometimes locks-up with a continuous sound. Unlike the thread, I don't seem to see it with games specifically nor does it occur after a specific period of time, but it does always happen when the system is playing some audio. I played through the Witcher 2 and only had it once in my entire playthrough, but when I played the original Deus Ex it would happen a lot. The most recent time it happened I was just playing music with Foobar. I've never had it happen during a stress test.

I'm sure it's not bad components, because I "upgraded" from the Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 to the Gene-Z, and the Gigabyte board was rock solid with the same components. It's likely not overclocking related since it happens more on the desktop or in Deus Ex 1 than in modern games.

Any ideas? I have the 2.65 Realtek drivers and have not installed the X-Fi software.

Edit: the Anandtech post says it's related to dual-channel, and when he took one DIMM out it worked fine. I don't really consider that a "solution". I have G.Skill Sniper 2x4GB 1.5V
