Just because it was working fine yeaterday or whatever, doesnt mean its its fine today, ask me about the **** im going through with creative right now.

seems to me, like you might be losing a stick.


check one stick at a time,trying in different slots.


2.3 is alot voltage, maybe to much, id rma that ram, if possible.OCZ is really good about rma,s

Head over to [H] forums and look up andy ,he's under andyocz,send him a pm, see what he thinks. He'll get back to fast, or at least he has with me.
The auto reboot I mentioned wasnt related to the blue screens. Its a feature of this motherboard. When you set overclocking options it will reset itself after saving the settings and if the settings fail it will reboot itself a few more times before post while it sets things back to defaults.

And as the OCZ site says, 2.3V is the standard for the ram.


Is it normal for SiSoft Sandra to be waaaay off with its memory readings as well?
