IBT (Linpack) probably won't help you determine what is wrong with your temps and memory. Prime95 26.6
and Memtest are what you should probably stick to for now.

). The temps were around 64-67-65-62, is this safe? You guys think I could go higher with the OC or lower with voltage?
So now you are using fixed voltage (why)?
What is your memory's exact model number? You might have memory that wants 1.65v, which is okay--but it should run how it's rated.
Actually, you should build a "rig" and "show it off" in your signature so people know what you're working with. At least put your specs here.
Have you been to any of the huge Sandy Bridge or ASUS threads here? Many start off with a nice guide to get started with.
Here is a basic setup for 4.3GHz on a P8Z68 w/ 2500K:
LLC: High / Ultra High
Offset: (based on VID---usewhatever get's you 1.0v idle, 1.25v load)
Spread spectrum: Enabled (maybe)
If your place is at normal room temp (ambient: ~22C) then you shoudl get an idle of between 25-30C, but those load temps you listed in the high 60's are just too hot for 1.23v with that 212 you've got. It will work out fine for your chip, but those are temps that the stock cooler provides.Edited by samwiches - 4/2/12 at 2:48pm
