    Still having troubles with this. When I go past the 1,4-1,45V QPI/Vtt voltage mark it just seems to freeze even faster. Now, back around the 1,35-1,4V QPI/Vtt voltage I can easily get it through 5 laps of IntelBurnTest Standard or even on lower voltages (Just got 5 laps through on 1,275V). But try as I might I can't get even one lap of maximum stress level done on that thing. Is IntelBurnTest a reliable way to test computer stability? At least on the settings the bios defaults to on auto (1066MHz, whatever timings) I can run a maximum stress level test no problem, just slows my computer down to a crawl.

    Please, you must post your Full settings when you are having issues so we can help.

    Intel Burn test is reliable, but is a MAX STRESS kinda program. So things must be just right.

    Maybe more IOH voltage is needed still then, or more Vcore/PLL then you are giving? Sorry I have to blindly guess as you did not post your settings that are failing

    I'm not sure if the BIOS shows the current advanced Timing control values or just the ones it uses by default (like it shows the default values next to the ones used currently for the Standard Timing Values) but at least they are all set to auto so I haven't done anything to them.

    They had some fake Adobe update script on the page, took me a minute to get the page to stop before the script loaded so I could ban him!

    @Pinqvin

    Yeap, sounds like you need more QPI/Vtt. At 1600Mhz 1.35 is about the normal range, some need more some less but I would start with 1.35 and see how things go. It is fine, and you can use much more than that so don't worry

    If you still have mo luck, please give me the full settings you are trying and I will advise back

    If you want that .ru you can download it from Gigabyte. I changed it because I saw that someone had doubts as to it's content. Yes the post was a Gigabyte site with a PDF of his motherboard. The manual download came from the Europe(Russia) HTTP: found here----> GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Manual Download

    I like.ru sites myself, for many things :)

    Missing for one day and the world stands still? At least I know I am doing some good here then, thanks guys!!

    Sorry about the delay, trying to finish up a few Memory reviews here and been getting pretty tired

    I quickly tried to go through the voltage settings and it didn't seem to have any kind of impact on the freezes/reboots that happen (just something I noticed: when the computer freezes all the USB devices seem to lose power [at least my mouse and keyboard lights turn off]). I plan on taking the computer apart just to check everything out and then rebuild it again. I'll then go through the voltages once more thoroughly.

    Let us know how that goes, and if you are still having issues please post the full exact settings you are trying that fail and we will try to help.

    Sadly I must say, it may be your choice of ram as I am seeing more and more issues with these. I have tried in vain to get samples for testing to confirm or see why this occurs, but since they ignore me/blow me off I am for sure not going to give them any of my hard earned $$ when things like that occur

    Yep, still looks like a no go on the proper timings front. I wouldn't even mind running these underclocked or with worse timings if the god damn thing would stop BSODing. It's driving me up the wall. So yeah, I've tried the settings you suggested and besides that I haven't changed a thing. I plan on trying with just one or two sticks to see if it's just the three channel mode that refuses to work but I'm not having too high hopes about this.

    EDIT: Just tried with one stick of RAM, no luck. I'll test more thoroughly tomorrow with different slots etc but it looks like it's time for me to contact the place where I ordered these and see what they can do.
