Have you found the solution to our problem here? I tried Googling about the issue and it seems to be a very common one with these kits. There are discussions on it in the G. Skill forums but all the official tech say is to try RMA'ing the kits.

Turning the VCCIO up by a notch or two will increase CPU temps, right? Thereby hindering the ability to overclock higher?

VCCIO = qpi/vtt/IMC voltage

This should have only a minor affect on temps if you're only raising it a notch or two. This should only add a couple of degrees C max to your temps (that's what it does on x58 platform when you bump QPI voltages)

update: I tried 1.66volts on ram and 1.2 on vccio, It locks up during POST or windows loading screen. BUT i am running all sticks at 1600 8 8 8 right now with stock volts. I will try more tests later, stupid school.

RMA will be my last option, I have no other ddr 3 ram, I need this computer running.

edit: kevindd992002 if your allowed can you link me to that thread you were talking about
