    Ya, you may just have needed 1.35-1.4+ even for QPI/Vtt when running 1600Mhz memory, not all CPU's can do it with less than 1.3

    I'd still test with another CPU for a few days if and when you can, for the C1 issue

    Sorry for lack of updates but a lot of progress made:

    1) I tested CPU with different board and it works fine
    2) I sent the board into Gigabyte and after not testing/resolving my issue the first go they finally replaced my board with a different one. This board runs solid now and no C1 stuck issue

    Now - I have 24GB of Kingston HyperX I'm trying to run with this board and 1600 is still eluding me. Initially running the RAM at 1333Mhz worked but system only showed 16GB and Windows would report 24GB of RAM but only 16 usable. I fixed that with some research and by switching RAM slots 4 with 2 and 3 with 1, now I get all 24GB.
    Trying to run the RAM at 1600Mhz even with vQTT at 1.4v and vDDR at 1.65 (XMP profile auto) seems to cause random reboots and auto off/on cycles. I'm starting to think this might just be the issue with pushing the i7 platform to its limit of 24GB.

    Any ideas?

    Glad to hear you got a new board and its working for you...

    As for getting your 24gb of ram to run at 1600 might not be possible. The memory controller is on the cpu. So if you have a "Crappy" cpu you might not be able to do it at all. You can run up to 1.5v-1.6v qpi/vtt which may be needed to run that amount of ram at those speeds. If you are at 1.4v now slowly keep adding more voltage untill it stables out.

    bclk, memory multi, uncore multi, the amount of ram = qpi/vtt voltage.

    Also Dont use xmp profile. Set everything manually. The bios might be setting wrong timings or sub timings with that amount of ram that could stop you from getting it to work.

    If you still have trouble take out 16gb of ram or what ever you can get that stable at the speed you want. Then add in the other ram and see how much more voltage is needed to get it stable.

    You might only be able to run at 1333mhz with that much ram,try loosening ram timings from spec,for example if 8.8.8.24 try 9.9.9.28 or 10.10.10.30 timings,you will need more than 1.4v qpi/vtt voltage though

    Thanks for the suggestions folks, I'll try when I get home tonight. timings were loose at SPD rated 9-9-9-25 already for 1600Mhz but I'll see what happens.
    I might end up just running at 1333Mhz since this is a server and stability will be paramount to speed. I was mostly doing this as an experiment to see if the venerable X58+i7 platform can get to 1600mhz

    a bit more update:

    System started randomly rebooting with even 1333Mhz or even 1066Mhz and manually set timings. vQTT was at 1.4 and things were very strange. RAM wasn't an issue as I ran 12 hours of memtest86+ and did 2 complete passes with no issue. The system would be randomly crash during windows boot process or when I'm in windows sometimes with minimal load.

    After some more testing I realized it was actually the vCore that was messing up, for some reason this board only gives the chip 1.180 with auto vCore instead of the spec 1.225 and that freaks the chip out esp. during vCore drops when system is idle. If I manually set the voltage to 1.200 or 1.225 the problem would go away completely. Go figure, I was able to drop vQTT down to 1.25V with the 24GB of RAM running at 1600Mhz now.

    Thanks all for the input and advice, I really appreciate your help and wisdom.
