post #3042 of 3042
Ambients were 67F, I take it?
Or were you running in the oven? biggrin.gif

I would start with putting your ram on the specced settings. 1866 + the timings that are on the stickers on the modules.
And then start from scratch.
Now you are playing with 2 things at once.

Can you post screen-shots from your bios settings: voltages, digi+ etc.
Also what were your previous settings with the stable clock on air? Volts, clocks...

If you start with stock cpu and stock ram(specced settings) you can isolate things.

Judging by the test your ran now, I think your volts are too low. But I need to see more settings to advice on what to change.
Also you tell about NB 1.3 volts. I hope you mis

Try reseating the cooler if you haven't already.

That is a proper cooling and those temps are way higher then to be expected.
