Then you have oddballs like me that prefer long term reliability.

Jeannie, the typical general life expancy of a CPU is 10 years. As long as you are reasonable, which I fully admit, I'm not. overclocking a CPU may bring the life expancty to 8 or 9 years. There are exceptions to everything, of course. That's OK with me. I fully expect, if I am fortunate enough to live another 8 years, I will have upgraded my board and CPU by then. You too, I suspect.

I'm hoping for another six years from my current machine, assuming I'm still around, before I build a new one.

Keep in mind I'm a coward!

Supposedly, as long as you stay under 1.4V, an Ivy-e, and I presume Sandy-E, does not degrade the CPU. This is according to OCN, who know all things about overclocking. Many of the members there regularly speak to the higher ups at Asus and Intel. One in particular's father is a 'higher up' at Intel.

News:
At the present time I have 16 GB @ 1600 installed in slots.
A1-B1-D1-C1
The bad slots are posting in bios as they should.
What I'm checking is if the motherboard and cpu are able to handle 32 GB as advertised.
I'm still unable to run a WEI it stops in the middle of the ram test.

The problem with the QLV list is it leaves a big back door for the motherboard/cpu manufacturers to run and hide. I can speak from personal experience Asus will use that back door.
If your ram isn't on the QLV list they always blame it on the ram.
Ladies and gentlemen I believe you all over a QLV list.

I'm running the Windows 7 built in memory test now.
I can't ever find the report when it is done.
What is the best place to get Memory 86 download?

Right here Jack, Windows test is crap in my opinion. there are two memtest86+ out which we use, 4.20 and 5.01. The newer one is supposedly for Intel 3rd gen and up. I've used both. If using the 5.01, press F2 when it starts to use all of your CPU sores.





RAM (memory) test:


This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.

At this time I'm not sure what to do. I get the very strong impression Asus is going to run and hide.

If it was my money and time, I would go to ASUS again through your supplier. If he is worth his salt, he'll get a new replacement for you, not someone else's return.

Looking for opinions on this PC.
My desktop PC is getting on in years - it's a 3GHz P4 I bought back in '05 or so. I've got a good NVidia card in it and 3G of RAM, and there's still quite a bit it can do, but it really is starting to cause me some headaches. I'm in the market for a new desktop, and in my shopping around, I've come...
