Need some assistance troubleshooting error 55 issue with my Asus Gene-Z.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Components:

Asus Maximus Gene-Z
2600k (slight OC to 4.2) with Thermalright Macho.
16GB of Gskill ram
MSI GPU
Corsair AX750 PSU.

Randomly, my system will restart and then the error 55 will show up on the LED on the motherboard. Which normally means memory missing or not compatible. I've had this system up and running since Dec 2011 with very little issues till now.

The problem is each vendor I reach out to is passing the blame... Asus says its the memory. Gskill says its the motherboard... Intel says it's both...

Anyone been through this kind of issue and how did you resolve it?

Remove your CPU overclock and see if the problem goes away. 4.2 GHz isn't "slight" overclock, and if you have C-states disabled, might have caused some electron migration by now.

What voltage is your RAM running at? Anything over 1.55v is out-of-spec for a 2600K and 1.65v has been proven to cause IMC failures over time. Intel specifications for 2600K are 1.5v +/- 5%. A lot of RAM vendors (G.skill included) and motherboard manufacturers (ASUS included) have 1.65v RAM on their QVL, but neglected to remind people that it can and may cause permanent damage to the CPU.

Pretty sure I have all my C-states enabled, but I'll have to double check. (however, Im unsure if that's always been the case as when I was first Overclocking, I believe I disabled them, then after my overclock was glitchy, I backed down to 4.2 and turned back all the C-states, and I've been at 4.2 for over a year)
Voltage for my ram is 1.5v.

I just added 4GB to my extreme..booted fine, streamed 2 movies and then got a BSOD 1E error. Hmmm...no bclk OC, ram is pushing it though. DDR3-1600 set at 2133+ sure...
Took all of it out stick by stick...
failed at dimm3 (DimmB1)
Seems my RAM had paired itself and the 2 that came together bonded with the other set.
Tickled me a bit... all slots good though now. Used the MSI trick and took all the memory out then reset the CMOS. Back to norm.
When it bricks...
I do a few things...
1) Take all the memory out, power off the PSU then power on to get the "22" "no RAM detected.
2) take all sticks and try them 1 stick at a time in each slot
3) Hit the Clear CMOS again. Install all the memory A1A2 or B1B2..

The BSOD code of 0x1E leads to require increasing vcore, in conclusion. You may require upping the Vcore a notch or few as this is a sign that your CPU overclock is not stable.

Check this link out:
Common Bluescreen of Death Error Code List for Overclocking

Well it is true that the BIOS can get a bit buggy and may require a CMOS reset to fix it.
