Seriously, 1.8v dram is crazy high. You should never need more than 1.65v. I believe your way out of spec for the CPU memory voltage as well. I believe Intel says 1.65v max
Actually DDR3 will fry at around 1.9v
1.8 is perfectly fine as long as you have heatspreaders, I had Gskill memory running on previous 990FX fatality @ 1.8 with no problem at all. In fact I regret selling the fatality. Because now I see my problem is motherboard glitch. I cant change CPU NB voltage, I have just tried every single bios realease for this board from 1.5 to betas down to 1.0 and not one of them allows changing the CPU NB voltage even though I manually set it in bios, it stays stuck like you see in the screenshot.
If asrock doesn't fix this asap with a new bios im gonna be pissed and looking for a new board.

Already running 1 stick just for troubleshooting
Using latest 5.01
Anyways I found the culprit its CPU NB (which is where IMC resides) not getting enough voltage cause it defaults to what you see in screenie and I cant change it no matter what I do. This is a mobo problem, not RAM like I originally thought.
