    where did you find the thermal paste? on the printed board? an ear cotton bud dipped in alcahol is ideal to remove thermal paste from awkward places

    It was on the square metal clamp that holds the cpu down.

    ok, at 1550mhz it reads all 6 gigs using a 155blck x10 multi . upping to 156 i lose 2 and the memory is "reserved for hardware" . any fix to this ? How can i tell what its being reserved for>?

    i think it shows you in the program list just above the reserved graph,if you look in the commit section

    You can ignore what it says (Meaning hardware reserved, ect) that does not matter. What does matter is total seen in taskmanager, or when you see N/A or - in the MAIN timings in the BIOS for any channel, when you do see any of that a channel has failed due to any number of things such as settings, failing IMC, or faulty/incompatible modules.

    Since a reboot fixed it, sounds like you are just on the brink of correct settings but not quite there yet. Try a bit more QPI/Vtt or IOH, or a bit less QPI/Vtt, or try less/more uncore.

    Did you get any socket pics while you had it apart? If so please post them

    I swapped my bro's modules with mine. lol. problem solved. He's trying to keep his voltages down anyway and is not concerned about an extra 100 mhz ram clock. Think he's staying at 4ghz and 1456 ram, he dont need it :-) Did some awesome things last nite and will post a few screens later on tonite. Didn't think it would make it , but passed a 5-run very high 16 thread stress @ 4.2ghz w/1600 mhz RAM using 21x200 @ 1.328vcore and 1.33 qpi . Temps peaked at 82c though it was a bit cold last , ambient was 69f. Timings are set at 9 9 9 24 w/ 1.66 vdimm. The 21x multi is way more stable than the 20x, otherwise i would go for a 210 x 20 to get my ram closer to 1700 mhz. Still need to figure out whats going on with the other sticks , LSD i have tried a wide range of different voltages/voltage combos as well as timings to get it right . Its weird since the system sees them, but doesnt know how to use em. plus the added disk space to my ssd ....

    I was kicking myself when i realized i left my camera at the office LSD. But after swapping the sticks, we now know what it is. Im gonna memtest each stick individually and see what it can tell me. Thanks everyone

    thats good temps, i may have to redo my heatsink paste to see if that makes a difference to my temps, cant seem to go from 4.0ghz to 4.2ghz

    Otherwise i do agree with you that x21 multi is way more stable than x20

    Yea when using a 20 or 22x multi it seems to need much more voltage and temps get into the low 90's. think i found the sweet spot.

    I cant get it at x21 multi with a lower voltage than x20 but it is def more stable, if i could get lower voltages and still be stable i wouldnt have heat issues at 4.2ghz :)
