    Ahh no need to wait, you wont hurt anything really unless you try some crazy voltage or something. You are fine to tinker around anytime.

    I need to see what exact settings you are trying before I advise back, the ones you are failing with of course.

    Cool, good luck with the testing!

    Update us anytime once you have had some time to tinker around

    Ok I found out what makes my pc unstable. It seems if I bring the ram past 1066 it will not run correctly.

    At the other system spec it was at 1600
    uncore frequency 24
    memory multi 12

    I changed it to 1066
    uncore frequency 16
    memory multi 8

    I used every other setting you stated exepct the 2 listed above.

    Now this didnt fix my memory issues but it did allow my pc to become stable while running in windows. Not sure if this helps out at all. It seems as if my motherboard doesnt like any oc done. Which sucks because it was supposed to be very easily oc able

    I also wanna say I contaced gigabyte about this issue and they insist the problem is with windows and not the motherboard. It seems they like to blame other people for there own mistakes. I hate that kind of stuff. and there final response was just rma it. They didnt wanna help troubleshoot this problem at all.

    here are some pictures of my memtest. It shows all 6 sticks of ram but after it states 4g after it it says 6g. Its very unusual. I tried to take pictures as being 1 is upper left 2 is upper right 3 is bottom. If anything in this can help you figure out the problem I would appreciate it thanks again.

    just click the image and the first one that comes up will show the 4g and 6g thing I was stating before hand.

    Right after cached memory it states rsvdmem(think that means reserved memory not sure.)
    So Cached =4096m
    rsvdmem = 8k. Now It states it just like that. Not sure if that means 8k means the missing 8g that has been put in reserved memory for no reason.



    Now if I am write that means that
    1. the post shows 4g
    2. Memtest shows 4g
    3. Windows shows 12g but only 4 is available and 8g is hardware reserved. Man this is a pain. Did any of this information help. and so far no errors have been found
    4. Windows used to show full 12g till I installed easy tune 6 and the h50 liquid cooling system

    This is one of two things, hopefully the first.

    Normally loss of memory channels can be two things, one being incorrect amount of QPI/Vtt and Vdimm, or bent CPU Socket pins. Or of course faulty memory, not often the case

    Did you look for bent CPU Socket pins before installing your CPU? Is your heatsink fully and properly installed, not to tight and not too loose?

    That is 4GB for sure, are you seeing "N/A" listed on channels main timings in the BIOS?

    Let me see your current settings that are giving you this error now and I will advise back.

    If settings do not help you will have to remove your CPU and check for bent or missing pins. If you do this now be VERY Careful as a few users have bent pins just trying to look.

    Your mention of a new CPU Cooler worries me, I think you may have bent some pins when you installed this. Or maybe it is just on too tight or loose, please check. Also check to be sure it is not shorting the board on the backside or front.

    I just installed a new heatsink. I will put in my old one to see if that fixes it.

    its very difficult to tell. they all looked good except the lower left hand corner. Near the dot. It didnt look like anything was wrong just looked kinda off. you need some high power magnifing glasses to check that stuff.

    I guess the best way for me to tell is to figure out if the lower left part of cpu is what controls Ram. Its near the Dot closest to the back of the case and bottom

    1 3
    If this was the chip
    2 4

    If this was the chip I would say 2upa 5 pins twords 1 and 2 right 5 pins to 4 to be exact.

    Now it looked like it was all ok but if that the spot where ram is controlled then that must me the problem
