Edit: I got a BSOD with 4-4-4-(12-15) so i'm at 5-4-4-13 and i've not hit a BSOD with Prime95 yet. I also kicked my CPU up to 2.99 GHz for the hell of it as well and i'm peaking at 35 degrees celcius with stock cpu cooler.
35 is a chilly temperature for load temps.
Now that you know 5-4-4-13 works, try changing 2T to 1T. Every time you're trying new memory or a new mobo, it's wise to see if 1T works. It's not a guarantee that it will, but it's worth a shot. You'll feel a slight boost in performance.
And if it's not stable, then don't give up. Try increasing the voltage to the maximum rated voltage in the voltage range for your sticks (e.g. mine is 2.0-2.1v, so I went to 2.1). If that doesn't work, then try a higher Cycle Time (tRAS), like 15 instead of 13, or like 18 or something. As you can tell, I think it's kind of important to at least try to make 1T work. But if it doesn't, then oh well. It's not that
big of a deal because it's not something that works for everyone.
Anyway, I'm glad you're getting some help here on OCN! You came to the right place.
