    Can you post current M.I.T and Advanced BIOS settings using the template below?
    Ignore any value in it and just replace them with your own, including default values and ????.
    Code:
    Motherboard: Model: Rev#: Bios Version:
    Cpu: Model
    Ram: Brand, Model/Part#, Link to your ram's specs
    Power Supply Unit: Brand, Model#, Wattage
    
    note: replace all ?? with the value displayed in your bios.
    ----> Replace "Auto" with manually set values.

    You are overclocked? I didn't realize that. The MemSet screen capture was taken with those settings?

    Try MCH Core 1.2v.

    No that screenshot was taken before I overcloked it. I overclocked it afterward hoping it would have some effect. it didn't. Also i changed MCH Core to 1.2v and it did not help.

    Try MCH Core 1.0v.
    You would have to run memtest86+ on both sticks individually and both slots 1 & 3.
    There is no point chasing settings if you have a faulty memory stick or memory slot.

    problem has been solved! i started swapping out my ram to see if maybe i had a problem with one of my sticks and as it turns out one of my ram slots is fried. thank you for the help otherwise though.
