Probably worth also to check is the thermal paste is good enough in that heatsink, if it's possible to remove it.

I have seen my PCH as high as 67 when fans were not working correctly...

On the other hand such chip can run as high as 70deg (probably 80) without any problems I believe. certainly 56-60 doesn't constitute a problem. I guess a Tj max for such chip would be close to a CPU Tj max of 100deg.

And no OC setting I tried affected it.

My only advice for those who want to upgrade the BIOS is:

1) Load BIOS defaults

2) Flash the BIOS

3) Turn the PC off completely, start from there.

4) Dial your OC settings

Man you're lucky.

I can only sometimes manage to boot my system with my 64GB at 2666. But no matter how high I throw voltages, etc, it always bombs out eventually.

I'm seriously toying with getting the crosshair. Seems like chances of getting better BIOS sooner are greater with that board.

i dismantled mine to change the thermal paste, turns out they uses thermal pad. i didnt measure the thickness but i guess, it's 1mm thick

have you tried to give more SoC voltage? like 1.1v?

Oh, I have given everything more voltage - and sometimes more than I was at all comfortable with biggrin.gif

hmm.. it seems like you're running on 4 sticks, right? give a try with 2 sticks only?

Not sure I see the point of that? If it goes faster, yay, but it's still only half the ram redface.gif

Just not sure if I should try and be patient or just get crosshair...

just sorting out the problems biggrin.gif

there's no guarantee for running high speed RAM with 4 sticks now. one could while the other cant frown.gif

I'm sticking with what I have for now a) because prices are too high now and b) I want them to sort out the bios problems so I know that even if I change my motherboard, I know whatever ram will run without having to mess around too much!

I might go for the TaiChi - torn between that and CH6
