    Let's look at a few things now before advising settings. Since you are using 12GB and a lot of auto's this is probably most of the problem

    Can you please post with the settings you are using now, a screenshot of Easytune Tuner Tab, Advanced, Voltage I

    And also a screenshot of CPU-z SPD Tab.

    I did once try extreme on memory. In fact right after getting those RAM (I started out with some different ones, but I could never get them error-free).
    On the extreme profile (just running with the defaults that the profile sets) I was getting errors too. But I will try with the settings you suggest.

    I don't care much about speedstep. I just noticed that when I disabled all those things, I run a bit more hot. And since I was already running higher than other similar setups, I set it back.
    (At current settings CPU is at about 48-49C, when not doing much).

    I have some stuff I need to do, so I can't test right now. But I will try the suggested settings later today and let you know. Thanks for your time so far.

    I am about to try the settings, but am a bit confused on this part:

    Below values may be left in Auto if you like, generally this is fine.

    ##Channel A Advanced Timing Control##
    tRC ........................................ (Should be = tRAS + tRP or above for stability)
    tRRD .......................................
    tWTR ...................................... (Must be Write to Read Delay/Same Rank - (tWL + 4)
    tWR ........................................
    tWTP ....................................... (tWTP Must = tWR + tWL + 4)
    tWL ........................................ (tWL Must be CAS Latency -1)
    tRFC .......................................
    tRTP .......................................
    tFAW ......................................
    Command Rate (CMD) ................ Set 1T


    Does that mean I leave CMD on Auto or do I set it to 1?

    I left CMD on auto, and set the rest. But then is did 3 cycles (just from pressing save & exit from BIOS).
    And after that a message:

    The system has experienced boot failures because of overclocking or changes of voltages.

    Last settings in this page may not coincide with current H/W states.

    I meant for you to set 1T and leave the rest of those on Auto, sorry for not being more clear on that.

    Sounds like you did not find the correct settings since you see that error, please try some more, then give me the full settings you are trying that fail and I will advise back.

    I don't have the time to test right now, but I generally had set everything as you suggested. The exception to that being CMD.

    And I think also I may have forgotten this one, at least don't recall what I set it to:

    IOH Core 1.100v ..................... [Auto] << may need 1.14-1.2

    For the other setting in which you had listed I range,
    I generally ran with the lowest value withing the range.

    Uncore frequency at 24
    QPI/VTT voltage at 1,255
    DRAM voltage at 1,66

    I can try it again later today when I get home from work.
    But I can only assume the same settings will give the same result.
    Is there any hint in which one(s) that are most likely to need adjustment?

    Well I gave large ranges, that's why I asked what exactly you tried.

    Lowest value in the range is what you would work down to, start at the top.

    QPI/Vtt is the key voltage

    I tried the settings using the high-end values (except for uncore clock which is at x24).

    CMD.................. 1

    QPI/Vtt Voltage... 1.355
    DRAM Voltage..... 1.66
    IOH Core............ 1.20


    After saving and exiting, it did some cycles again. Hard to tell if it's 2 or 3 really.
    But it came up without the error message. But looking at M.I.T. Current Status in BIOS seemed odd.

    QPI Frequency was listed as 36 X (But it was set to x48 as suggested).

    To get a fresh feel, starting from a powered off machine I shut it down.
    I went to eat, came back and turned it on but now it did 3 cycles and then came with the same error
    message as previously.
