The reason I mentioned taking out two sticks is because it's harder on the IMC when you have all four slots filled, even with your CPU at stock. Take out two and then retest.

what do you suggest I test with?
p95?
If so - should I do a normal blend?

I'm creating a new thread...

Do a custom blend - 90% memory used

^^ Looks about right to me. Keep it going for 10 hours. If nothing has failed, then try overclocking again.

forgot to pull 2 sticks out though.
I'll see how long this lasts

If it doesn't I'll pull two sticks out (go to 8GB RAM)

Out of interest about the +12v rail....isn't it too low @7v?

Your computer would not turn on if your 12V rail were at 7V. Software is never reliable nor should it be taken seriously. wink.gif Use a voltmeter for that kind of thing.

So I've decided to first test the hardware - ie. I'm now on STOCK clocks with STOCK bios settings, nothing touched apart from RAM timings and set to 1600mhz (rather than 1333, which is the SPD, even though corsair have tested it to 1600)
Anyway, I'll see how this goes, if it passes, then I'll know it has something to do with my CPU voltages (as that would make RAM in theory stable, and running as it should), if it doesn't pass....then I'm going to have to call one or two companies to RMA some things...

Remember how close our chips are, I'm at 1.28 @4.5GHz. My think you need more Vcore especially since you have twice as much RAM as me, I'm going to delid very soon when I get the nerve!
