Right, while I now busy myself pushing the CPU a bit any further ideas on the RAM greatly appreciated! Can I / should I push the CPU/NB to see if it stabilizes things?

Temps look pretty good to me.
About upping the cpu-nb.
Personally I think it is already way up high...
But then again, maybe Fears can give you better info on that one.
As far as I know you don't want the cpu-nb higher then the vcore.
And guys. What about that huge difference between low and high values of his cpu-nb voltage?
I don't know if I missed it. But I saw nobody tell m00ter that it isn't the amount of ram but the 4 sticks at that frequency that gives the stress.
If you did have 2x8gb you'd be good to go.
Edit:Is it true?
I've heard that amd changed the max core temp a couple of times the last few weeks.
Can anybody give me some insight on this....
How come it suddenly is safe to go to 70 instead of 62c?
Ok so the CPU/nb needs to be toned down, since you have already set a higher set voltage, drop your LLC for the CPU/nb down a notch, I rarely go over 1.45 however I also do only run 2 sticks.. but I have seen this and delt with it on the side so mainly this issue with the RAM is going to result in you needing to overclock by FSB a little
So I say drop down the RAM divider by 1
so you have it at 2133 then up the FSB till it says 2400
keep in mind when you up the FSB it will clock everything else, you will want to drop your CPU/NB divider as well as your HT divider.
Keep the PCIe clock a t 100 (that is a tricky one to OC FYI)
next you may want to check the voltage that you have for the vDDR, if you up this by .2-.3v it may actually help you.
I have experienced a lot as I was running 1866 cas 9 ram at 2400 cas 9 but dropped it down to cas 8 2133, it put a lot of stress on the IMC and caused me to learn a lot about it.
Another thing that you may want to check into is that on another profile where you have the CPU at stock, then set overclock setting to D.O.C.P. to 2400 RAM and check to see if that works.. (keeping everything on stock other than what the board wants to overclock, keep in mind the settings that you need for your other voltages for your clocks.) once you have everything stock and the RAM at 2400 you will then be able to fully isolate the root cause and get it stable to work 2400.. once it becomes stable you will just need to modify the other multipliers to set to the clocks that you had set,
Set the voltages, and after all of that you should be good to go at 4.8 from there. once you have that solid then you will be able to proceed to thee 5.0+
This is complete and is the best advice you will be able to follow at this moment in figuring this issue out.
