I just installed 18 gb of ram, and spent a day and a half trying to get it stable @1700. I was upping and upping my qpi to 1.41 and it kept failing. So in frustration I reverted to defaults to get it to boot. It booted fine with 1.2qpi and the ram @ 1.5. So I decided to leave the qpi low and tried 1600. It booted and passed linx 10x. Shocked I went back into bios and went to 1700 with 1.3qpi and 1.5v dram. same thing stable as a rock. I guess that sometimes lowering the voltages works better than raising them. Just figured I would share.
