    I’d say that yours is much more stable. Mine is crashing every night within 5 to 10 hours. I’m running one DIMM at a time and with Prime95 and I also have 3 instances of MemTest 4 so all the free memory is tested while Prime95 is running.

    I also had this problem, and it mysteriously just stopped. All I didt was remove all the dimms and try one by one, it still froze. Then I tried different "cheap" ram and it didnt freeze. I then tried to clean all the dimm slots as I thought maybe some dust got in there. After blowing clean all the dimm slots I then proceeded to check my ssd and then whent into windows and ran scan disk on all my drives on by one.

    I rechecked all my power cables and sata cables (i have 21 drives and 3 ssd's in my case) and rebooted.

    After doing all that it seems my system is now stable... really not sure what was causing it. Currently, my system has been stable and running 27/7 for just over 5 days :)

    I got a Kingston (KHX1600C9D3K8/32X) DDR3-1600 8x4GB kit to test with.

    I also did a clean install of Windows 7 on a spare hard drive with no updates or drivers. I was worried that the SSD drive may have been causing/adding to the instability. I only installed the latest version of Prime95. With all 8 Kinston 4GB DIMMs installed I did a few overnight runs and one that went for 28 hours with no errors. I then put all 8 of the 8GB GSkill DIMMs in and I had two threads error within 30 minutes. I reset the BIOS each time only selecting the XMP profile.

    I’m going to do the RMA now on the GSkill Kit. I hope it works.

    Use this Bios for a better 64GB Support.

    UEFI L2.03
