Is your heatsink on your cpu seated properly? Looks a little off to me in the first pic.

Good luck and enjoy your new build, Nick
What settings are you using? I'm attempting to overclock my new 2500k on an Extreme3 Gen3 as I write this biggrin.gif

Those are my BIOS settings with RAM at 1600 8-8-8-24-1t. Again I never went above 77c on 12 hours of prime/ibt and not a single blue screen in 3 months of 24/7 use!

Then again every chip/board is different.

Good Luck, Nick

Were the RAM settings necessary to be stable @50?

Not at all the RAM was rated for 9-9-9-27 1333 so it was overclocked and at 1.65 volts. I would imagine it would cause more problems not stability.
