    Default GA-X58-USB3 i7 950 random reboot

    I have a problem and I'm hoping someone can help.
    The computer will crash randomly during usage - especially during heavy usage. It will often not get through a full install of Windows 7 without crashing. It sometimes will blue screen and sometimes will just power-cycle.
    I have figured out it will always crash/power-cycle on the second pass of the pSeudo-Random memory test in Microscope 2005.

    GA-X58-USB3
    i7 950
    8GB (4 sticks KVR1333D3N9/2G)
    Radeon HD 5770
    Thermaltake 750W PS

    I have tried different (identical) RAM, less RAM, different HDD, different Video Card, upgraded the bios to F4,... I have played with Vtt and Dram voltage a bit, but I'm not completely sure what safe numbers are.
    Any help is much appreciated.

    Edit:
    I just figured out the computer will only crash if the RAM is in slot 1-3-5 or 1-3. If I put the RAM just in slot 1, everything works fine, but I am not utilizing the capability of my RAM.

    What make of ram? It's 1333mhz right? Your voltages look ok but you can safely use upto 1.4v qpi/vtt,you will need more depending on how much ram you have,have you manually set your ram speed and timings? Set the uncore freq to twice your memory multiplier and add one to it,so 8x mem multi would be 17x uncore freq and so on,try with 1.36 or 1.38 qpi/vtt voltage

    My RAM is Kingston RAM. It is 1333mhz.
    I need to set memory multiplier to 10x to get 1333mhz.
    So I set uncore freq to 21x (default was 20x)
    I have not manually set my ram timings.

    Yes 21x uncore,set your timings I think its spd timings manual then choose quick and type them in and choose command rate 1t

    Download memtest86 and run two tests at the same time or three until it uses all the free memory,run 100% test,try 1.36v qpi/vtt to start with and raise if memtest throws up any errors

    I set the timing to 9-9-9-24

    I got my info here http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KVR1333D3N9_2G.pdf
    Is tRAS=24 correct?
    Also, do I need to change anything beside those 4 items?

    Yes that's correct,all the others are fine on auto just set those four timings,how are you getting on? Have you tested stability yet?
