Default Re: Need some comments on this deal

SSD hasn't arrived yet (still early in the day here) but I figured out what was causing the crashing. The memory I have, for whatever reason, detects as 1333mhz. I overrode that by using the overclock setting. While this works fine for memtest, it apparently has some kind of compatibility issue with the motherboard, where something else (I don't know what, I just read about this somewhere that it's not going to work) causes instability.

Apparently to get it to 1600mhz proper, I'm supposed to enable a setting in the UEFI called XMP, and doing so clocks it to 1600mhz, without causing the crashing.

Whatever, it works. Stable at a 4.2ghz overclock for 6 hours so far.
