    I use the latest BIOS issued on 11.01.2009. Note: The same issue occurred with all previous BIOS versions.

    As for the settings, I just enabled XMP profile for my Corsair (1.35v QPI VTT, 1.65v DRAM Voltage. 7-7-7-20 2T. All other settings on AUTO/default settings.)

    I tried various voltage combinations. Also, I tried with no XMP enabled, with severely underclocked memory (at 1066MHz) and with timings not so aggressive. No way.

    Note: I enabled XMP profile for another brand RAM (Kingston 1600MHz, from Qualified Vendor List for my MoBo) and it works just fine: no cold boot issue (6Gb -> 4Gb) or other issues.

    it could be with reading the xmp profile then,disable it and set your ram timings manually 7-7-7-20 but try 1T faster than 2T,set ram v to 1.66 in bios,qpi set to 1.320000 and set your cpu voltage to "normal" voltage setting,set system performance enhance to standard then try a cold boot up.....raise your memory multiplier to give you ram speed 1600mhz or whatever speed it is

    Thanks, and sure, I can do all that manually. And believe me, I tried A LOT of manual settings. Nothing helped so far.

    I have run some more tests over the weekend and my problem seems to be linked to a bad stick of ram.

    After reseating my cpu to check for bent pins in the socket I started noticing in the BIOS that one of my memory channels was dashed out in the M.I.T (As previously described by Achelon), on cold boots; for example:
    CAS................ 8[Auto]
    tRCD............... -[Auto]
    tRP................. -[Auto]
    tRAS............... -[Auto]
    Command Rate.. -[Auto]

    I wasn't getting that before (But I am glad it started). Then on a "warm boot" I was getting all channels displaying properly (instead of dashes I was getting numbers). From there I tried moving the sticks of ram around to see if the dashes were tied to a stick of ram or a slot. After moving the sticks I found that the problem was tied to a stick of ram. Attempting a cold boot with just the suspect stick of ram caused a failure to boot with C1 on the debug LEDs. I had previously tried booting with each individual stick but I must have tried to boot with this stick within the period where a second boot would work okay (I.e. a warm boot).

    After removing the suspect stick of ram I am not having any problems. I am waiting for a warranty replacement stick to arrive and will let you know when I have it if it cleared up my problems (with all 3 sticks in). It is a bit weird that it would pass memtest86+ with a bad stick though.

    So my advice is for Achelon to try moving ram dimms around (e.g. if stick A is in slot 1, stick B is in slot 3 and stick C is in slot 5, try stick A in 5, stick B in 1 and stick C in 3) and see if the dashes follow the dimm around indicating a bad stick or stay with the slot. Or, try cold booting from the stick that has the dashes in the BIOS and see if you get a failure.

    @ Snarky, it appears that if replacing your kit with another one and your problem goes away there is a problem with the first kit. Are you getting any dashes against the ram channel timings similar to those I mentioned above on cold boots in the BIOS? If so the stick with the dashes may be bad, try cold booting with just that stick. I also was able to pass 29 hrs of memtest86+ without errors, but would fail in under 2 hrs when running 8 instances of memtest (MemTest: RAM reliability tester for Windows) - just allocate about 1/8th of your available ram per instance (600-700MB or so) - with all 3 sticks (even with 6GB ram displaying correctly). After removing the suspect stick I have been able to run for 12 hrs without error (I quit after that).

    Just some ideas.

    P.s. Thanks again to those who have helped me out specifically wazza300 and flyfisher.
