    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Current voltage readings (from PC Health):

    Vcore: 1.300V
    DDR18V: 2.240V
    +3.3V: 3.344V
    +12V: 12.048V
    System Temp: 32C
    CPU Temp: 25C

    Here are the current BIOS settings:

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio _________________ [9]
    CPU Host Clock Control_____________[Disabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)_________ [226]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [Auto]
    C.I.A. 2_________________________ [Disabled]
    Performance Enhance _____________ [Standard]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)_____ [Auto]
    Memory Frequency(MHz)_____800___800

    CPU EIST Function.........................: [Disabled]
    Virtualization Technology................: [Disabled]

    Integrated Peripherals
    Legacy USB Storage Detect_________[Disabled]

    1. Start by changing to the following:

    Code:
    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]___________
    CPU Clock Ratio ___________________[9x] ____________
    CPU Frequency _____________________[2.40GHz (266x9)]
    CPU Host Clock Control_____________[Enabled]________
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [266] ___________
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]____________
    Performance Enhance________________[Standard]_______
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)_____[3.00]___________
    Memory Frequency(MHz)____[800]_____[800]___________
    DRAM Timing Selectable___(SPD)_____[Manual]_________
    2. Try "System Voltage Control" on "Auto". But monitor the voltages with whatever. I like "HWMonitor" ( CPUID ). (Combined with the way you have "Advanced BIOS Features" properly set.) I think that verifying everything is AOK when you manually set CPU and Memory Speed to stock; and "Standard Timing Control (4-4-4-12) speeds is advisable.

    3. Run some tests and if your PC passes everything... START OCing!!! MUAHAHAHA!!!!

    1 more question - How long did you run MemTest86 for ?
    Specifically how many iterations of test#4 and Test#6 ?
    Intel Core i5 4670k C0 @4.2Ghz - Corsair H80i
    Gigabyte GA-Z97x-SOC Force (Rev 01, BIOS F6C)

    Bee_Dee_3_Dee: I'm trying your suggestions right now.

    I'm curious as to why you are trying to heat up your ram by using +0.4volts, effectively taking the RAM voltage to 2.2volts although that might not be accurate.
    It's not as though you are overclocking.
    Although I'm not sure if you have now sorted the issues and all is working ok?

    Personally I would have loaded up the bios defaults and with the exception of changing "Performance Enhance" back to standard, I would have then tested everything from there.

    Edit:-
    I see you are using a Beta Bios too - any reason for that?

    Edit 2:
    Ok i see you ram is low latency ram and that it's warrantied upto 2.1volts. But not all Motherboard/ram combinations will need the voltage to be this high. Also for testing purposes you can reduce the voltage (ie have it at default or slightly higher) and keep the timings at a more normal relaxed value ie 5-5-5-18

    Is this a typo ?:-
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)_________ [226]
    or are you underclocking for testing purposes?

    I started with all the settings at stock values. After I found that I was having the data corruption problems described at the beginning of the thread, I started adjusting settings and flashed to the most recent BIOS. None of the changes that I've made so far have fixed the problem.

    I left the RAM voltage at 2.2V because that's what's marked on the RAM (I think it's an older revision than the one listed on the website, which is marked 2.1V). I'll try relaxing the timings and reducing the voltage again, just to make sure, but I don't think that helped before.

    Yes, sorry, that's a typo.

    If you have any more suggestions for me, I'd be grateful.

    The 2.2v for DDR2 800MHz RAM caught my eye right away. So I peaked at the first search result based on you RAM's model number. And at ZipZoomFly Dot Com, the specs said the Manufacturer suggested 2.2v.

    So, anybody, isn't that odd? (2.2v for DDR2 800MHz RAM?)

    As far as loading Optimal and all that Jazz, I figured (sry its sooo unscientific) Simonkeys had done all that! :)

    Simonkeys, has the following helped at all?

    Have you tried testing the RAM chips separately (individually/ one at a time) yet?

    I think Simon suggested he had tried one stick at a time, BUT is that just removing the same stick everytime and not checking the sticks individually.

    I think your best options are:-

    1) Remove 1 stick of ram
    2) Loadup bios defaults & save
    3) Re-enter bios and set Performance Enhance to STANDARD & save
    4) Run memtest for 1 pass Version 2.11 Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    5) Check for copying corruption
    6) Also I find this an excellent utility for assigning MD5 hashes to see if any files have become corrupt checksum for Windows.. SHA1 or MD5 hash a file, a folder, or a whole drive/volume, with an Explorer right-click.
    7) Create a HUTIL diagnostic disk for your samsung disks and do a quick test on both SAMSUNG Hard Disk Drive - support - utilities
    8) Then swap out the first ram module and replace it with the second ie just check one stick at a time.

    Edit:
    Just need to clarify something. You say you get data corruption, I assume file corruption? Are you checking say zip files with CRC checks of MD5 hashes, or just noticing say an MP3 won't play. Also when does this file corruption occur, because I believe you have only one internal Hard drive? Is it partition to partition, simply copy and paste, USB mem stick to internal HD or Internal HD to External HD etc?
    In a way it's amazing you managed to install windows, unless it was created before the problems occurred.

    I think your best options are:-

    1) Remove 1 stick of ram
    2) Loadup bios defaults & save
    3) Re-enter bios and set Performance Enhance to STANDARD & save
    4) Run memtest for 1 pass Version 2.11 Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    5) Check for copying corruption
    6) Also I find this an excellent utility for assigning MD5 hashes to see if any files have become corrupt checksum for Windows.. SHA1 or MD5 hash a file, a folder, or a whole drive/volume, with an Explorer right-click.
    7) Create a HUTIL diagnostic disk for your samsung disks and do a quick test on both SAMSUNG Hard Disk Drive - support - utilities
    8) Then swap out the first ram module and replace it with the second ie just check one stick at a time.
    I have checked each ram stick individually, and tried different slots. What I see is:

    There is copying corruption when using both sticks in dual-channel mode (either pair of dual-channel slots). When using either stick by itself, or both sticks in single channel mode, there is no corruption.

    Memtest (latest version) passes for any memory configuration (single-channel, dual-channel, single stick).

    I set a backup program (SyncBack 2BrightSparks | Freeware) to repeatedly copy a several GB file, MD5 verify, and bring up a log file if it finds an error. It finds an error on something like one out of every three passes. It doesn't seem to make a difference whether the file is being copied between two HDs or just duplicated on the same HD. I also tried using another known good harddrive, so I don't think the Samsungs are the problem.

    Yeah, I guess Windows doesn't really have to be bit-perfect to run :) Actually, since the errors mostly occur when copying really big files, it might have squeaked through ok on installation.
