Did you get someone else to put in the 4th one and that worked fine?

Or was it just "Willkers! I read some guy online overvolted the CPU and RAM 30% to get a big OC, so I tried motherboards till I found one that worked like that!"?

I've cycled through more hardware than most people ever will. I've never gotten a defective part of any type.

On the other hand I don't usually OC anything, and when I do, it 's always very small, stock volt OCs.

I used to work in a box shop, we didn't see many actually defective parts out of the box, we never saw two.

So when I see a post like this I think "this guy had a problem he didn't realize with something shorting out" or that you're one of the "voltage specs are only there for people who aren't true computer engineers like me" crowd.
