    ok well 1.355 didn't do it.. i just bumped it up another notch like 1.375 i think .. we'll see tomorrow if that solves it.

    Is it worth it for all this voltage to be at 1600? (if thats the problem) and should I worry about failure at this voltage? or am i still safe for 24/7 usage?

    youll be ok,just keep testing it like that untill it stops doing it and if it doesnt then its something else,id go no higher than 1.4000 for 1600mhz ram,maybe its a bad batch of ram??

    I am using 1.4-1.425V QPI/Vtt for 1600-1700Mhz, all depends on your memory, uncore, QPI Speed, timings, and your CPU's IMC of course.

    Don't be scared of it

    Isn't it strange that I get NO memory errors in memtest though.. baffles me really.

    Memtest is not stressing everything else though.

    Try Memtest86+ using only test 2, then 5, then 7, then 8 for a few hours each, then you might find errors, but then again maybe not.

    ok 1.375 didn't do it i'm at 1.38 now.. post back tomorrow after a night of cool down.

    something else to consider here, if it doesn't boot bios showing all 6 gigs.. nothing you can set in bios voltage wise or timings, speed wise will make the chip show up. The only way to get it to show is a full power down and reboot OR when you set something in bios and bios chooses to power off for about 3 seconds by itself.

    This might be of interest to you: http://gskill.us/forum/showthread.php?t=4794 or even 12800CL9T-6GBNQ showing as 4GB with 6GB installed - GSKILL TECH FORUM

    Downgrading the bios seems to be a fix for this person with x58-ud3r and exact same ram as you -- odd and probably ridiculous, yes I know. Also the person doesn't have the exact same board as you but it might be worth a try. You should probably post there too in order to "alert" the gskill techs that something fishy is going on with the gigabyte x58's and their RAM. Hope this helps

    THANKS!

    this happened to me after i upgraded bios.. I'm sure eventually they'll just figure it out.. release a bios that doesn't have problems and i'll be in business.. it's more of just a slight inconvenience than a real issue atm.

    Yeah I was researching this exact problem when my friend was complaining about issues with the g.skill RAM and gigabyte board. It's very frustrating when this kind of stuff happens because downgrading the BIOS is the last thing you'd probably think of doing, especially when newer BIOS is supposed to help fix these sort of issues. My buddy was pretty much raging when we were playing some online games and his computer would shut off at critical moments. He ran perfectly good settings that were rock solid with any other RAM kit but no matter how much voltage he pumped into the QPI or VDIMM with the g.skill's, his computer would still have issues on stock clocks. I'm not bashing on gigabyte or g.skill's products b/c theyre awesome, but it just doesn't make sense to me why a compatibility update would break compatibility.
