Set it back to defaults, leave it alone. Is the cpu overclocked ?

Nope, no overclocking going on here. Not real comfortable messing around with my BIOS

Checked the Bios and downloaded the right ROM and updated. Apparently I already had version 2001 installed. Although it gives me a 3/8/11 date which is the version previous listed on the above link. Not the April 2011 version. Although that could just be the date it was officially posted. In either case I am reading version 2001 which is the newest version.

Getting replies to the forum in emails but not on here, strange. But for those who are keeping up, figured out how to manually set the Voltage. Hooked it up at 1.55V and played for several hours last night without any issue.

Yeah I have heard it said on occasion when you have all 4 RAM slots full that for stability the voltage has to be raised by 0.5v from 1.5v.
Good to hear you seem to have nailed it.
