sell it and get a asus m4a79xtd evo if you dont really care about vdroop too much.
i dont want to spend money at for a new board at the moment, i will wait for bulldozer;D

Since your RAM is rated 1600 8-8-8, perhaps you should lower your timings to compensate. I'm pretty sure those can do 1333 at 7-7-7~6-6-6.

On my old Mushkin 996629 rated 1600 8-8-8, I could never manage 1600 8-8-8 even with only 2 DIMM's and a C2 processor (perhaps it was a faulty x8 multiplier); I lowered the speed to around 1333Mhz and lowered the timings to 6-6-6-18 - I got similar or better results in benchmarks and in real-world usage. Eventually I upped that speed to 1450 and I did indeed get better results and the system was much snappier. Since then I upgraded both CPU and memory.

one ram set is rated @ 8-8-8 1333 so there is nothing to compensate...

You'd probably not see BSOD's with increased voltage overall to your VCORE and CPU/NB.

Ah, didn't realize that, though IMO 1333 8-8-8 is a complete ripoff. There's really not much difference between that and 1333 9-9-9 (therefore it is still generic) and it often costs more and uses more voltage anyway.

mixing ram = bsod

i have those dominators running at 166x right now but ive had them as high as 1700 on the stock 1.65v at 1:1.33 8-8-8-24. at 1:2, (iirc) they'll run ~1450 7-7-7-20 easy

i get the bsod with the OCZ and dominator (both 1600mhz) when going higher than 1400mhz, it has nothing to do with the Vcore, CpuNB and Vdimm, i increased all of them to insane values to see if thats the problem.

that is without mixed rams...

after all the testing and different ram i used i think the problem is the x6/mb combination thats bad or the super crap bios from GB which causes the problem...

an other user with the same CPU/MB and g.skill ram (1600mhz) also had the exact same problems when going above 1400mhz so i think there is no need to argue anymore on this issue...

also telling me that you can run your ram fine on a 890 chipset is not very usefull because there seem to be no problems with these chipsets and high frequencies... if you had the same cpu/mb with your current ram speed that would be a different story.
