So you couldn't boot at over 4GH z with the other ram, now it's running fine at 4.2?

Were all the timings and voltage etc back at default settings on the 2400MHz stuff? If you are sure they were then maybe something has gone bad on them.

Either that or a weak memory controller.

True, for awhile. I changed from adaptive to offset, left the offset voltage on AUTO and got 'er to boot up to 4400 now. After I got it booting once again is when the winsat score dropped way off, it had been 31,200 or so on the same RAM settings.

Now here is the same RAM as the previous snip overclocked to 2400, 10-12-12-30.
You said your RAM score dropped when you overclocked it too?

I'm suspecting a poor IMC (internal memory controller) too Steve.

Forgot to add the 2400 RAM passed memtest 8 passes, if it means anything now.

Yes, personally I don't think mine can cope with more than 2400MHz but it does run great at that speed.

I take it you've reset things to factory defaults and cleared the CMOS settings to see if it was a setting that it didn't agree with? Is there a BIOS update for it?

Yes and yes, a few times.
I flashed the BIOS, there are 2 newer versions than what came with it. I cleared CMOS prior to updating te BIOS, as ASUS recommended.

I ran memtest86+ 5.0 and the RAM got really hot to the touch. Has anyone experienced that?

The second fan made no difference in temps, dammit! Same thing when I added a second fan to the Hyper 212EVO.

Unlucky chap! It was worth a try though enit

My temps are all proper good since i changed my case
I was getting a hot spot by my optical bays in my last case and because i was using one of the Cougar Vortex fans as exhaust my northbridge temp would hit 71c when gaming.
They really don't do a lot if used as a case fan but are totally different on a rad.

Max temp playing BF3 in old case with just pull on the H100i.
Cpu 49-50c
Nb 60-71c
Gpu's 70-75c

New case with push pull on the H100i the highest temps i've seen.
Cpu 40c
Nb 53c
Gpu's 65-70c with lower fan speeds and no hot spots

The weather hasn't been quite as hot though
