@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
Well I would be pretty upset too!

I'm quoting you saying that you testeed your 12v Rail and it was @ "11.84", Right?

Mine is running with a full 4 core and ram (Blend) load at 12.23-12.32v!

Now, I have a Raidmax 850watt 12 x 4 @ 20amps. I do remember having an Asus board that was only between .05v-.15v lower on the Boards 12v+ (what apps detected) than an identicle board and I got random shutdowns (reboots) and Blue screens on occasion... It got worse when I would try to OC anything... I'm not saying that it's the board. But maybe the PSU is running to low of volts for this setup... Just a thought. have you swicthed to a higher PSU yet to see if the issues went away? Like at least a 700-750w

Could you link me what your using?

I just had to flash my CMOS, I dont know what we did but my PC was locking up alot.

Starting all over again
HERE is what I have just for the record...

I can crank buckle this stuff down to CL5 with no problem. Obviously it takes some volts but it works. Or I can loosen things up and crank them up as high as the IMC will let me! But they're expensive and kind of hard to hunt down now... I wouldn't getting another set after I get my C3. I might actually find a use for the other 4gb kit...

I would seriously try the PSU and the Ram. Probably the PSU first.

DRam Voltage.


DDR V Ref is the reference Voltage.

CPU-DDR-PHY is a type of stablizer for the Ram. I relaly don't know how to explain it other than that. I've heard that it supports the IMC... But who really knows...

I just cant understand why all of the sudden we are having all these ram related issues popping up. It makes absolutely no sense to me as this club has been going for quite a while and we have had nowhere near this amount of issues posted until recently.

I am agree that some of the IMC's are going to be weak as I should be able to get tighter timings on my ram @ 1600 but for some reason I can get anything better then 9-9-9-21-1T stable no matter the voltages. This to me sounds like one of two issues, BIOS problem (I have run multiple(using 1.6 ATM no issues at stated settings) or very weak IMC's going out.

I have two questions for all of you that are having these nightmares, What bios version are you using and what are the last 5 numbers of your CPU SN?

One thing i noticed between the C2s and C3s is that the voltage CPU-NB has gone down alot. With my C2 i needed about 1.4v for 2.8Ghz with this C3 2.8Ghz is stable at 1.28v so people need to make sure they reevaluate all voltages when running with C3s and not to read something on a site that has to do with C2s try it and damage their product.

yeah I am starting to think that voltages are the main issue here.
We may have to try to work on getting one machine stable at a time while putting all of our heads together. I dont know about the rest of you but I have on heck of a time keeping all the issues strait as far as what has been tried and what exactly the issue is.

That could be whats going on. New members are coming in asking "why my system is failing to overclock or shutting down because of low voltage when I followed the steps?"

These new CPU version are throwing us a curve ball..

I can tell you from running a few different sets of ram on this board, that this board is finicky with it. I've had my best success out of "i7 optimized" sticks using elpida chips. You may want to think about that for a purchase IF you are looking for ram or you think ram is your culprit for issues.

I highly suspect that it's ram issues, and not board or cpu issues.

It was 11.94, I dont know if that makes a difference.

I will be putting my 700W Tagan back into it today and volt testing it.

We will be putting my friends PC together today, and then IM going to put his 955 into my Board and see if the issues stop or continue.
I'd really like for it to be the CPU, so then I have no reason not to buy the 965 C3

Another fun day of trouble shooting.

Also im running 1.7 bios and this is my parts #H90224
