    Yes when I first loaded optimized defaults this morning, and it auto set it to 2... so I left it.

    I'm running a memtest now with my QPI/VTT set at 1.38 and DRAM @ 1.64, 22 minutes in and no errors yet.

    For 6 sticks, 2t is likely better.

    If you are stuck, then what I would do is start over. In fact, that's what I just did to my buggy system.

    Put Memtest into your optical drive. Load optimized default again. Set XMP profile1. See what QPI/VTT is. BIOS should tell you wherever you set XMP what QPI Profile Voltage is. Mine was 1.35V.

    Load optimized default again. Set Standard BIOS, Advanced BIOS, Integrated Peripherals, PC Health. Set optical drive as first boot. Set VDimm to 1.65 (or 1.66 in this case). Set memory multi to 12. Uncore to 24. Memory performance to standard. Timings to 8-8-8-24. Set QPI/VTT to what XMP's QPI Profile Voltage is. Reset. Turn off system when you get into Memtest. Turn off psu. Unplug it. Wait a bit.

    Disconnect everything. Pull out your motherboard from case. Set it on mobo tray or cardboard. Remove everything from mobo. Clean off your cpu. Check for bent pins and disturbed pads on cpu. Install cpu and stock cooler. If stock cooler has no fresh paste, then clean and use new paste. Plug in cpu fan to header. Install ram. Install video card. Plug in only the optical drive. Connect your psu to motherboard. Make sure all connections are secure. Connect case wires--hdd LED power button, reset button, power LED, beeper--to mobo.

    Plug monitor, keyboard/mouse. Power on.

    Run memtest. This is a hassle. But you've already been inconvenienced. Why not see what happens.

    I'm actually curious to see if the cpu aftermarket cooler might be the problem. I have an i7 950 system that apparently does not have a hardware issue. But I have the same weird Memtest problem that you do on that system. I have an RMA'ed kit of 12 sticks I am waiting for. And an i7 930 system that's still out of the case which I finally got working. As soon as I get the kit back, I'm going to do just this. ^^;

    currently sitting @ 107% coverage with 0 errors. Think it may be finally resolved


    ^ soon as I posted that bang! error... upped QPI 1 more bump, hopefully this will fix it?

    Well, I'm glad you didn't have to take my advice. Whew! XD

    BTW, your ram is rated at 1.65V. If 1.64V fails a stability test in the Windows environment, then you could also try raising VDimm to 1.66V if there is no 1.65V option. :)
