Windows 7 x64

Yes, I've read a lot about my g.skill memory. I've had to change the timings to 8-8-8-21 (since they were set to something lower when using "auto"). I've also had to change the command rate to 2T. I've never had an issue with the RAM until these sticks so I'm quite dissapointed. It's weird that I need to run memtest86+ to get out of the cold boot state, it's like the RAM doesn't like to be off for a period of time.

I'm also thinking I should turn down my O.C. (currently at 3.4 ghz) a little bit or possibly just turn it off entirely. The cold boot issue is a very strange problem and quite an annoying one at that.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hi did you get any resolution to this issue,

I am having similar issues with 0x000000f4 BSOD. I note there are a few users who are reporting simialr behaviour.

I am hoping maybe we can all disect our systems to see if there is a common component or maybe someonw has a solution that isn't posted.

My issue here :
