I don't see how its possible to 'bend' a CPU pin on an i7 seeing as everything is flat... everything appears normal however.
Oops, I meant socket pins.

The socket pins would appear fine - at least I can't find anything that is obviously bent / broken

have you figured out anything or tried new ram?
the memory controller is located in the cpu and shouldnt be considered but is always a concern...

hope all has worked out.

just noticed your running 3 sticks... are these all paired?
without running in even #s of ram slots you lose your dual band timings... wonder if this has anything to do with it?

Uh, X58 uses triple channel RAM so uses sticks in multiples of 3 for best results...

But no, I have yet to figure out the cause yet. Still working on the issue.

I am trying to arrange a refund for another set of RAM with the store I purchased the RAM from.
