I'm certain the memory is not bad as they test by themselves ok. It's just when I have all 6 of them in there I keep getting errors when I run memtest86 on test 6. All other tests pass without problems. When I only use 3 dimms, they can run up to 2133 no problems. It's just when I try to run all 6 of them at 1866 that I get errors on test 6. I did find that upping my tFAW helped most of the errors that I was getting on test 6, but not all of them.

I'm just running a 133mhz bclk as I'm just messing around with memory overclocking. I've tried lowering the unclock from 3200 to 3066 without success. I'm down to 2800 (1.5) but have not been able to run it under memtest yet to see if that fixes errors. I'm running 1.35v vvt and 1.66 vdimm.

Any help would be great as I can't seem to find anyone that has errors on test 6 on X58 that can tell me what's causing it.

Try re-seating the CPU and, of course replace TIM while in there.
While the Processor is out check the pins and pads.
And, make sure the cooler is mounting level.
And, don't overtighten the cooler screws/bolts.

Edit:
I don't OC at this time.
This is what I have now and it runs ok with the XMP profiles.
The x58 chipset seems finicky with certain memory and 6 DIMMs.

The dimms are not hypers but the ones that replaced them (I think). They're the blue Corsair Domms with the removable fins, 2GB modules. I've ran then fine up to 9-9-9-24 @2133 without more then 1.64v. They take and keep running. Just the uncore can't keep up.

My Asus board is finicky when running with the XMP profile. I have to set them manually. I've thought about reseting the CPU, but I don't have the problem of getting all 6 dimms to register when booting (hot or cold).

I'm contemplating moving a couple dimms around but I'm not sure how the board assigns the address. The error keeps popping up in the 7100mb range, consistently.

you know there are 2 versions of memtest. try another one perhaps. I remember different versions would show errors when others didn't.
