    There are several similar post with the patriot mem and gigabyte boards on newegg and the patriot forums.

    I have pretty much the exact same issues, with a slightly diff board. Unfortunately I've kinda settled with running the mem below what I paid for, rather then the hassle of sending something back and receiving something that may or may not actually address the problem that many people are having with this ram/mobo combo.

    Bump, I got a private msg with yet another user with this exact same issue. I really wish someone would return their memory to patriot and let us know if its worth being without a computer for 3 weeks to see when they send back. Unfortunately I can't really afford to be without a working machine, so I'm kinda stuck.

    first your vcore is way to high and is probably the reason your rebooting with overvolt error. on the i7 920 you can oc up to 3.6 without increasing the volts past 1.181 on the which is stock (auto)

    second the ex58-ud5 dosent support 1600mhz memory very well.
    i have ocz gold 1600lv 1.6v-1.7v and it will only boot at 1333 @7-7-7-19-t1@1.6v x8 multi. on a 3.2-3.3 oc x10 at stock speeds.

    if i change the trc to 45 and trfc to 90 (these numbers are high and will incure a performance drop) and set it to t2. i can get it to boot at 1660 (blk 166 mem x10,=1660@8,8,8,24,t2 1.64v, vcore 1.181 qpi 1.24) but cant get it to boot at 1600 (bclk 160 x10 mem)

    but it will only memtest 4gig of the 6gig and win7 says only 4 is usable, cpu-z says dualchannel mode instead of triple

    gigabyte have droped the ball with 1600mhz ram as far as i can tell.

    but it all boils down to the 800/1066/1333/2100+ compatability 1600 isnt there and it must have been left out for a reason.

    somthing i did notice also if you set the qpi to 1.3 or above your leds will start lighting up and quickly turn to red so stay under this you only have to stay winthin 0.5v of your mem volts so 1.24v on qpi will be fine for 1.64v on memory, this will sort any qpi temperature worries .

    my setup is:
    i7 920@3.333ghz turbo off (166x20) 3.5ghz turbo on (c1 halt off, speedstep off)
    ati radeon 5870 850/1200
    6gig(3x2) ddr3 1600mhz 8-8-8-24 t1 @1333 7-7-7-19 t1
    gigabyte ex58-ud5 f9m bios
    1 tb samsung f3
    22xdvd ram writer
    antec 900mk2
    thermolabs baram cooler 38c idle 60c max
    thermaltake toughpower 850watts

    hope this helps...
