Tried all the solutions on web, even system restore, but no joy - only thing I did not try was a new RAM - so it would support fault RAM theory too.
I've tried few installs again with 4GB but no joy, same problem. This tells me
1) Software has been corrupted when copied on system with 2GB faulty memory stick
2) Other stick start to fail too.

To support (2) now I recall that when tried boot with single chip, only 1 stick gave successful boot each time, 1 stick would not boot few times and 1 was totally faulty.

So yeah, I'm even more keen now to RMA whole kit, get money back and buy Corsair.
I just hope this has totally nothing to do with a mobo...

I have a bizarre problem and pretty sure now it is bad RAM, but before RMA I thought I will ask you what do you think as I know there were others with similar problem.

But - first things first - here's promised rig's pic:
(I wish there was black noctua


Now the problem.
My RAM is OCZ Reaper 3x2GB 1866 CL8 (black PCB, Elpida chips). I was stable until yesterday @4.2, 1.288v load, 0.96v idle (Offset 0.03125), RAM 1.60v, 1603Mhz, CL9.
Last night I've started to push the RAM, first CL8, later CL7.
Few runs in Everest, Vantage made me happy and I've called it a day.

This morning I've reduced IOH/ICH to 1.25, QPI/DRAM to 1.23 and fired Prime95 Blend x8, after 10min blue screen.
After restart couldn't get to BIOS - it hanged on the logo and few restarts later system would not power on at all.
I've removed battery, restarted default and.... only 4GB RAM.
I've had such boot once before, but it was only once and after reboot 6GB, no problems.

So quick google to find out people with similar problems - some had bent pins, overtighten screws, shortings, BIOS - wasn't case for me.
Tried and tried and tried boot with various settings - no joy, 4GB.
Weirdly enough, Everest shows all 3 stick but only 4GB active.

So tried to boot with 1 stick at a time in first slot.
Eventually turned out system wouldn't boot with 1 particular stick, with 2 others, no problems.

So I'm pretty sure now it is bad RAM and plan to RMA on Monday and order something else - but before I do that - what are your thoughts guys?
With all due respect to xmisery's suggestion , if you can afford the regular dominator C7 kit (not gt) then get that. Two guys (myself included) in this thread have it and both are able to run 7-7-7-20-1T at 1600 with 1.5v. Yes 1.5v. I'm hoping to post up 6-7-6-18-1T screenshots at 1.5v sometime today or tomorrow.

If you can afford the GT, by all means get it, but it isn't necessary....which is pretty much what xmisery was saying in the first place

Amazon.com has the C7 Dominators for real cheap right now....its where I got mine...not sure if you need UK info though.

http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-TR3X6G...7974976&sr=8-2

And yes, the failed reaper stick? Welcome to the wonderful world of OCZ + Elpida. I had three (yes three) sets of OCZ elpida memory fail on me, all within 6 months. And it happened exactly as described by you. I don'tknow if I can necessarily fault OCZ because all memory manufacturers got hit by the bad elpidas, but it comes down to which company do you want to depend on to give you your warranty support, and right now OCZ is much more interested in SSD tech than memory.

No worries bud. I would also agree with your comment regarding the Dominator CL7, (non-GT) kit, as It will be another excellent option. Also, it would be cheaper than the GT kit, unless he gets it for a good deal, or, if money isn't an issue.. I was only giving suggestions from the list luke997 provided.

Thanks BlackDragon24 / Xmisery.
This gave me some reassurance that it's not me/board being picky.

As I've seen your reports on memory, Dom CL7 were high on my list but problem is in the UK in decent stores I can find only CL8.

So here with Corsair CL7 would be either XMS or GTs, now I'm not sure if they are using same chips or not.
Specs look the same (speed/timings), only difference seem to be heatspreader/fans - I might be wrong there - but if not as much as I like the look of GTs they just aren't worth the difference to me if the chips are the same.

Anyone got info on this?

BlackDragon24, I've found this part:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-6GB-...7976304&sr=1-1

Corsair number: TR3X6G1600C7D

Is it the memory you have?
I'm a bit confused now as it looks right but the number is similar to the naming of XMS's, for example:
TR3X6G1600C9

If you can confirm this is the part, then yeah, I think I will go for it

Edit: Had a look at Corsair site, pretty sure now it's correct part.
Now I hope the chips on it are better than XMS3 CL7 - by for example allowing lower voltage like you did

Yep, those are the Dominators. You'll notice a "D" appended to the end of that model number.

For those who want to run their i7 920/930 D0's @ 4.52GHz at the lowest stable voltages, here are BIOS settings that have been tested and appear to be working great.

NOTE: These settings were stable for most others and should be for you as well. However, not all i7's are created equal, so YMMV (Your Mileage May Very). That said, these settings were tested against LinX - / Problem size: 25854 / Memory to use: 5120 / Times to run: 20. If you guys see some additional tweaks or changes to make this even better, please share. I should also warn, that running this OC will likely require a high-end air cooler or water cooling solution, as the temps tend to start getting on the high end.

Great, thx, will go for it now.

Did some more digging on Elpida Hiper failures, looks like Corsair was the only company to recognise the issue and stop selling affected sticks so I feel reassured with the choice now...

I actually plan on doing some type of "shoot" as soon as I finish my cable management and overclocking. Right now, I'm finalizing settings, finishing getting all my essential apps installed, and slowly working on cable management.

I just posted the first little picture from my cell phone just because I was excited just to get the thing up and running. I am actually really pleased with the way it turned out though, I've never been a blue led fan, so I swapped out all the oem lancool fans with the orange Xigmatek XLF fans in the appropriate sizes. I also added a pair of white cold cathode lights to brighten it up in there.

I may also add the upgraded side panel without the "hourglass" window shape. We'll see how it turns out
