Yes. having an unstable system isn't limited to the OS as it is a hardware problem. It's like having a super high overclock that the PC can't take, most of the times you wont even be able to go into bios, or when you go into bios it will just hang.

That's why there are those CMOS reset buttons and jumpers on the boards

Update - got some new memory and the problem persists. No harm done; I can sell my old memory on.

Couple of bits of research:

a) try increasing the IMC/VTT voltage. Does anybody know where this would be hiding/what it would be called on the MSI Z97 platform? I'm already running the vcore as high as I would like for safe temps.

b) CPU-Z reports my FSB:RAM ratio as 1:10. It's been a while since I played about with 775/1366, but shouldn't this be a lot higher? If so, how can I change it safely?



Cheers.

a) I think that IMC/VTT is called uncore voltage now
b) I don't think you can touch your FSB settings on a non K cpu... after a quick googling base FSB should be 1600 MHz


BTW, I think you do understand by now that you are trying to run memory speeds your processor hasn't been designed to support

So youre still going through this but ignored my "test it at stock" advise?


^^^As for running mem faster than CPU is designed for. Ignore that with a big laugh.

Don't want to go faster than 1333 Mhz, could cause a fire!

Isn't that value supposed to be times 2? That means that the ram is actually running at 2666Mhz

The speeds shown on the Intel website aren't supposed to be 2x
