    ah sorry i thought you had two sets,didnt realize you replaced them,i would look into what qpi/vtt(imc) voltage your using though,maybe it needs one or two clicks more as auto doesnt always set it correctly

    @ProfJim: lol, that's for sure. Took me this long just to figure out how to update the BIOS. I've done it before, but it was telling me I my 64b version of the driver was 16bit and wouldn't work. That was just the updater tho, the actual .rom file was under their Rapid Storage program that requires 20GB of your hard drive, so was hesitant to install. Also had to research just to figure out you have to install 'AI Setup II' just to flash the BIOS. It crashed my system at first causing a memory dump BSOD just by installing the AS Setup II.

    I'm happy with the progress so far to at least have a somewhat stable system. My concern now is that if I put in new RAM, will it damage that RAM now as well.

    Thanks, Im not too sure what exactly "qpi/vtt(imc) voltage" is, I was playing around in the BIOS a little, no changes made. That's the required voltage noted my the manufacture to the actual voltage the computer is giving the RAM?

    I'm only somewhat tech savvy. I was going for my MCSE before I switched to Video & Animation rendering.

    That's why I suggested looking for some good bios guides to help you with the learning curve. Some SB overclocking guides should also help with your bios education. Chances are pretty good that many of the better hardware review sites will have an Asus/Sandy Bridge forum that discusses how to best set up your bios. Have you checked out the Tweaktown/Asus-Z68 thread that I linked to? You could PM the Asus tech rep and ask him to look at this thread.

    If you edit one of your double posts, you should see a "delete post" option. You might have to use the "GO ADVANCED" option to be able to delete one of the double posts.

    qpi/vtt voltage is what gigabyte call it,imc voltage is what asus call it,both are the same thing,its for the integrated memory controller inside the cpu,with more ram and the tighter timings and faster the speed,generally you will need more voltage,only one or two clicks more from what auto sets just to see if it improves stability,you can look either in the bios to see what auto is using or look in asus turbo v

    Sorry for the delay in response, I've been busy at work.

    I checked the DRAM Voltage, it was set on auto, running at 1.515 in BIOS (1.65v RAM sticks). I ran the memtest on all 4 sticks of RAM at one time and received 1 error in test #8[Moving Inversions 32bit Pattern] and over 400,000 in test #9[Random Number Sequence] before manually stopping the test. So I ran the memtest on all 4 sticks, one at a time, then in sets of 2. All passed except when all 4 were in at one time.

    I read into the overclocking guide, and looked at the IMC as Wazza recommended. The guide mentions to adjust both the VccSA and VccIO, my BIOS only allows me to change the VccIO. The guide linked to me by ProfJim recommended adjusting both, but the results came from the VccSA. My VccIO set on Auto at 1.056V. I adjusted it to the only setting close to the recommended 1.15V without going over the 1.2V max, the setting was 1.1182 or some wierd number like that. I then ran the memtest on all 4 sticks at the same time again with the same results, 1 error in test 8, and endless in test 9. When I removed 2 of the RAM sticks, they were very hot to the touch, so I set this back to Auto. I didnt remove the other 2 sticks as my system seems to be stable running on those fine. I am still looking into this because I do want my 16GB of ram.

    I read on another forum that the issue was that I was using the G.SKILL w/ XMP (original RAM) in combined sets, that I had to get a quad channel kit. Also that the Corsair 2000 (new RAM), which is an XMS model werent designed to work well with the Sandy Bridge CPUs.

    I did look on the Asus support thread linked as well, but there looked to be only a few issues there, not similiar to mine. I am doing as ProfJim recommended and posting a link on there asking the Asus rep to view this thread.

    You need to set dram bus voltage to 1.65v,don't worry about running it at that voltage,its what they are designed to run at,1.5v won't be enough

    I had already set the DRAM up to 1.65. Sorry, I thought I had mentioned that in a previous post, i guess not tho. Just to test again, I ram memtest and same thing with all 4 stick in. 1 error in test #8, and endless errors in test #9.

    Edit: Yesterday when I started my computer, it said "No BlueTooth COM Port is available, please check that a COM port is setup and restart the system". None of my programs seemed to be working. I quickly restarted my computer and seems to be back to normal.

    Edit: Today I was downloading the new 2011 Maya (school does not have 2012 yet). I also had my game World of Warcraft running in the background. My screen went black, and my computer got silent (fans slowed). It sounded almost like was forcing a reboot, like the quietness before it starts into BIOS. It did that for only like a second or less, then everything went back to normal.

    Any more suggestions? If noone says otherwise, the only issue I can come down to is the fact that its 2 kits(2x2modules) of XMP RAM. Someone suggested that the XMP RAM cant be "combined" sets. Althought they are the same sticks I'm assuming this means that I cant use anymore then 1 kit, and that If I plan on using 4 sticks of RAM I have to order the XMP quad channel kit. The quad channel kit this person suggested says it works in quad channel or any intel dual channel aswell. Seeing this leads me to believe this is maybe my issue.

    Any input? It's been a week since anyone other then myself has posted in this thread :(

    Have you tried manually setting up the ram instead of using xmp? Xmp is just a profile stored in the ram,you can manually set ram speed and timings if you read mb manual,see what xmp sets imc voltage to and try 2 or 3 clicks more its probably not enough imc voltage that's causing the freezing
