What are your RAM timings at? How much voltage do you have going into them?

You should have the option to check how much voltage is supplied to your ram modules from your Bios.
It should be called something like "Chipset"...

Actually your chipset voltage is your NB voltage. You should only be raising that as a last resort to get your system stable. Your voltage for your RAM will be called VDIMM.

You may need to loosen up your timings a bit more. Take a screenshot of the SPD tab with the drop down selecting both banks that are occupied.

Just to clear any misunderstanding here... I have a sub-menu called "Chipset".
Once you enter it you get access to VDimm and Timings.
Anyway, thanks for pointing that out Chim3ra as it can be different on other mobos.

That submenu is probably, as you said, particular to your board. But it will point you in the right direction. The menu you should be looking for should be called Advanced Chipset Features, or something to that effect.

Change your memory timmings, 3 4 4 8, or 3 5 5 9.
