Did I blow out my P5E, or two diff DIMM sets? Help! - Page 2

Try boosting voltage to the northbridge and try again. If that doesnt work then rma the board. Sounds to me like you wayyyy smoked your northbridge by browning it out (not giving it the power it needs to power the ram)

Could be. I did leave it on AUTO, which one would (prolly invalidly) assume would "know" what to do when the FSB was amped up. I did increase NV voltage to just under the BIOS' red lettered indicator, at I think 1.41 or whatever was still yellow (it even says you need special cooling beyond 1.75, which i never came near, plus I have very special cooling . . .)

Long and short of it: it died completely today, and is now being RMA'd.
