I think I see the problem . these MB don't like going over 450MHz FSB . The Mult on your CPU is at 8.5 can you change it to 9.0 ? If not that is another thing these boards don't like very much . changing the voltage at this point is not going to work . you have hit the wall unless you can get that to a X9 Multiplier !

Cool ! You can take the GTL ref to 0.65x that would be about it . Is it stable ? run prime 95 and see . Not OCCT not just yet .

Take the Vcore to 1.45 NOT any higher and the GTL ref to 0.65x . That may do the trick .

Just be sure. Do you use all 8 pin to power your CPU or just 4(i'm using all 8) may be that giving me an overvoltage at 1.45v,it looks like over everything is kind of slow. and prime 95 fail in3 min 43 sec.:confused::D

Yes 8 pin power on mine too . Thing is it may have hit the wall . I am out of ideas now . sorry . Hey but you can over clock better right ? Just keep tinkering with it .

I would suggest dropping the multiplier from 8.5 to 6. This will temporarily drop the CPU speed to allow you to run the stress test and see if it is the CPU causing the error, or something else.

The RAM running at 943MHz might be too much for it, even with the loose timings, is there an option to run the RAM at a slower speed?

78 degrees still seems high to me. maybe you should back down the voltage. its very possible that voltage isnt the issue. +1 to newtekie's suggestion.

I think I just have to switch to Asus Rampage III formula and I7 930 .disapointed for now:(
Now i just out of any Idea,what this chip is wants ???:shadedshu:confused:
