    It's not that the memory is overclocked much; that's not my concern. It's just that it is showing unusually.

    See if you can set the bios so that is shows ~667 MHz in the Memory tab.

    Also, check that you are using the correct slots. Many motherboards want memory in 1 & 3 instead of 1 & 2. And finally, check that the memory modules you're using are actually compatible with motherboard.

    Definitely can't hurt to update bios to newest.

    Hi,

    Memory should't be showing as overclocked as all settings on default in the BIOS. The memory should be compatible with the board according to Cruical's website, I have also tried some alternative memory model: CML8GX3M2A1600C9 The memory is defiantly in slot 1 and 3 as I followed the manual when inserting the memory into the slots so CPUZ is incorrectly reporting the slots. BIOS reports RAM
    frequency as 1333mhz.

    Did the minidumps show anything? The system will often now crash when trying to boot into windows or even when it's idle.

    lol I decided to look again for the heck of it, at other dump I did not see yet and realized something I overlooked.

    Uninstall Corsair Link software. It is not compatible with 8(.1), for sure.

    (Strange that drivers for it are not showing in crash dumps, but that doesn't matter.)

    Enjoy.

    Thanks for this, I'll remove it now, I had it installed when I used the 1090T cpu and it was ok, but I'll remove it and see what happens. If that does not work do you know what else I can try?

    Hi,

    I've removed Seatools and Corsair link software the system is still crashing. I have been running some CPU tests and its just crashed cursor won't move. I'm almost running out of ideas as to what to do next, I've flashed the board with all available BIOS's from the makers site to rule out the possibility of an unstable BIOS. I guess I could ask the maker of the board to setup a test system using the exact hardware that I'm using and see if they encounter any issues?


    Thanks again for your continued help.

    Hi,

    It was never my intention to avoid carrying out the steps you advised me to do and apologise if my post came across like that. I have again checked the BIOS and these are the following settings that I am given for the memory frequency:

    800Mhz
    1066Mhz
    1332Mhz
    1600Mhz
    1866Mhz
    2132Mhz

    Also attached is another CPUZ of the memory and tabs.

    heh no no - I know that.

    ehhh I forget now, but I think last time I saw it, it was slightly higher in freq. That seems close enough to 667.

    Not really much else to suggest here besides 3 things.

    1) Set Optimized Defaults in bios ans save.

    If still crash...

    2) Remove a stick of RAM (for testing purposes) and see if it crashes. If it does, replace with other stick and take original out. See if that crashes.

    3) RMA the motherboard if necessary. (I think you said you tried new RAM already, right?)

    Hi,
    Thanks for the response,

    I have done a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro on a spare HDD with only drivers installed and the system stayed up for a day but then it crashed again restarting unexpectedly. Although I don't have any minidumps could you please take a look at the event logs and see if this shows why the system may have restarted?

    I've loaded default settings within the BIOS

    I'll test with one stick of memory now, I've tested some alternative RAM with the same results.

    Many thanks,

    I've tested with each stick and still get the same results. Do you think the only other option is to RMA the board as it could be something to do with that?

    Thanks again
