I actually think I will be RMA'ing my 2nd 955 and paying the extra $30 for the 965 C3 stepping

My friend's stuff just came in, Same board, same chip, OCZ ram. If he has the same problems as my last 2 set of board and chip then im done assuming its a coincidence and gonna start pointing fingers. We ran his ram in my board earlier and had the same problems. My PC stopped having problems with 1 stick in DIMM 1

Im getting a bad taste in my mouth towards AMD =/

That is some wise thinking...

That sounds like a plan.

I wil be honest, I think that the C2's have weak IMC's. or as some have quoted. "Finiky".....

My system is up and running now. For anybody having problems building a system using GSKILL Ripjaws 1600 ram, change the voltage to 1.65V manually in the bios, underclock to 1066, then you should be able to install windows.

I have updated to 1.7 and now I can boot into windows at 1600 but it is not stable. 1333 had some odd results as well. I haven't messed with timings at all yet though.

965 OC's like a champ on here though!

That really sounds like something to do with the Ram or IMC. it HAS to be... Ram is typically what will make things lockup. Call me lucky but I have never experienced a lockup from the CPU....

Did Newegg send both the Motherboard and CPU back to you in UNOPENED boxes? Totally Sealed?

There alot of settings to tweak when overclocking to get it stable especially with the IMC the board is great but i wouldnt suggest it for someone new to overclocking. Im still trying to get all of the settings down to increase my stability above 4GHz

Sadly im not OCing... I am still trying to just get everything to run...


@Mastiff All new sealed Items.

As for the Ram in 1 DIMM, Im a liar face. My PC locked up twice during league of Legends with just 1 Stick in. I dropped my setting to 1066 and it stopped.

Edit PC lock up at 1066
