Okay. The fact that you truned down the HT link says to me that it needs more volts. JMO though.
From my experience, if 3DMark fails with a error and not an entire shutdown, Ram or IMC is in need of volts... But once again, like spec said, some Ram runs smoother with this setup than others... I wouldn't try frying the Ram but if it needs more volts and you fel comfortable doing so, let her have it until she is stable. Within reason. otherwise, I would go with getting different Ram. I just feel like it'sa settings issue. Do you have the Ram DCT set to Both instead of DCT0 or DCT1? That does have an affect on things.
