    Post your full settings, that would make it easier for others to advise you on this.

    turn off turbo boost
    change you qpi link speed to x36

    the only things you need to play with are the bclk and the Uncore Frequency which should be 2x +1 of your mem multiplier so if this is 8 then set to 17

    a 4ghz overclock could be 20 x200 mem multi of 8 will give you 1600 RAM

    Adjust the cpu votls and qpi-vtt ans set mem to 1.66v, leave all other volts at auto

    if you still have mem issues lower the mem multi to 6 and set uncore to 13

    I'm using a h50 push pull setup temps never get over 60 underload. I'm not at the computer atm but once I get back ill give it another go. I finally cracked a stable 3.6ghz stable overclock last night so with the advice in here ill push for a bit more. Thanks everyone!

    Exclamation Re: GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 12gb problem and general RAM problems

    Happy new year everyone. thanks for the help so far its been great I'm a complete noob to all this but seem to be getting the hang of it.
    I still can't get the box stable. its been fine for a while but now when i render heavy 3D scenes I have to remove 3 sticks (6gb) of RAM to get the thing stable. and it has errors on Prime95 (rounding errors) I've overclocked it but this problem is still there at its unclocked state.
    I've run tests on all the sticks of RAM. each one tested individually using memtest, all have zero errors each stick had 5 passes performed on it.

    here are my BIOS settings

    Running FE version now not FE1

    Ch-B Address VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    Ch-C Address VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]

    a few questions. I've set the
    Command Rate (CMD) for the RAM to 1 on all the channels is this right?
    with the cpu mutli set to x23 the BCLK at 160 runs the i7 at 3.68ghz is the vcore of 1.25 and the QPI/VTT of 1.41 enough?

    also the same for the QPI PLL and IOH Core is the voltage right?

    thanks for all the help
