    try with high llc and leave vcore on auto,llc might raise the idle cpu voltage ever so slightly also,it could be too low causing lock ups? idk untill you test,you can try flashing the back up bios chip to the same version of bios as the main chip but i dont know what key presses it is,it used to be alt and f12 at splash screen but maybe someone can confirm

    if its solid lock ups like that it usually points to memory imo,but i could be wrong

    Well im picking up a new ram kit next week since it is the cheapest part to replace. I just don't see how it could be memory when it passes all tests with no errors at all.

    What would flashing the backup bios do?

    I think its its Ctrl F10 to that and Alt F10 to copy bios to backup. I think I would clear CMOS and load optimized defaults and see wot happens.

    Ok before we start to replace parts, Have you tested the system with 1 stick of ram and running with Optimized Defaults? Also try running memtest86+ on each stick of ram and each stick in all the slots then both sticks together. See if you get any errors during any of those test.

    Although its not needed to have both Main bios and Backup bios the same version, there is some cross talk between them and having them on the same version has helped.

    Yes conners is correct. ALT+F10 will copy main bios to backup bios. CTRL+F10 will copy backup bios to main bios. I would also recommend what conners has said about clear CMOS and load optimized defaults and try.

    What is the difference between clearing CMOS and loading optimized defaults? Seems to do the same thing.

    Props for the Lamb of God lyrics in your sig too.

    I have already tested for 12 passes of memtest with both sticks in and 12 passes on each stick individually. I have not tried running the system with only one stick though, i haven't received any errors in memtest so i don't see why that would help.

    I will try copying my main bios to the backup though.

    I dont know what the difference is but there is as with Z77x when you clear CMOS, on boot it will make you load optimized defaults before you can continue. So please try that also.

    I gleaned this else where lol. CMOS and BIOS are often used interchangeably, but you can think of the BIOS as software, and CMOS as the hardware running it. So reset your hardware and load your software...

    if its failing prime 95 chances are it needs tweaking,voltages/llc ect even at stock clocks it might need a touch more voltage somewhere

    Yeah it locks up during gaming after a few hours or even 15 minutes. I just locked up after about 4 hours of prime at all defaults with a CMOS reset.

    What else can i try increasing besides dram and vtt?

    I hit alt+f10 and i didn't see it do anything besides sit at the splash screen longer.
