You're welcome Patrick, they will always have the most up-to-date drivers. In fact when I get a new board, I don't even open the CD, I download everything from ASUS and pout them all on a USB drive.

Used the XMP profile? Updated the BIOS?

This could be a Bios update issue try that first and see if the bios effects stability that is always where you need to look first

Some of these boards have been shelf bound for over a year and most likely never been updated even though it went RMA refurbished or what ever

Rule of thumb update everything first then play with settings it only makes sense if you are looking for the full power and use of a system
