Set the voltage as recommended and performed the test.

There was 1 failure, the 7th test on the 9th round of testing.

John, RealTemp and HWINFO are generally regarded as top of the pile by overclocking enthusiasts.

Set the first 4 RAM timings to 'Manual' and 9-9-9-24, set 'Command Rate' manually to 2T, leave the rest on 'Auto'.

Change the DRAM Voltage to 'Manual' and to 1.600v.
Change the QPI Vtt Voltage to 'Manual' and to 1.150v.
Save and Exit the BIOS.

Run memtest86+ again for 7 full passes, with all 4 RAM cards installed, if you get any errors you can stop the test. Best to run overnight.
Let us know the results.

Hey everyone,
I've completed the testing (took well over 16 hours of straight running but its finally done)
And there were no errors!
Does this mean the problem has been resolved?

Can you confirm what you did?
Did you change the timings and voltages?

I changed the voltages to the second set that you suggested. The timings didn't need to be changed cause they were already set to those timings.

There weren't any errors reported after the 7 passes of the memtest.

That's a good sign, let us know if it remains stable over the next 3-4 days.
