That's just like mine, all three of them..... all the same same - 5069MHz @ 1.56V can run 3DMark11... Not golden...

So I take both memory and CPU speed down a few notches and try to reboot but I get 00 code again so I try stock speeds and that works fine, I now run the XTU bench at Stock without any issues ofc. So I try 4,7 GHz on CPU and 1866 MHz on memory with my normal volts for those speeds and that works too. The I want to go back to my 24/7 settings running memory at XMP profile which is 2400 MHz but I get 00 Code again, did I blow my IMC?
I go back to stock and I uninstall XTU reboots and try again and to my surprise it works I'm now at 4,7 GHz on the CPU and 2400 MHz on the memory running Wprime 1024 and 3DMark11.
What did XTU do to my memory/CPU?
XTU just crashes mine... was useless for getting a bot profile...that's the one isn't it?
