That is true. I didn't think about that.

I know a lot about computers but i'm not sure what you mean about the ram manual talking to the mobo. Maybe i do and it's not clicking in my mind at the moment. So much going on with the holidays i can't think straight lol.

F22 Simpilot is referring to the MOBO's [Motherboards] manual and if there is a recommended configuration of the RAM structure.

I hope this helps!

I'm going to monitor this for a few more days, then I'll mark it as solved, if it stays that way.

Seems like it's running good. Stock cooler running loud but don't all stock coolers. Weird though since my stock cooler for my 8350 was a avc before buying a noctua for it, her 8350 came with a cooler master still kinda loud though.

But it seems good, thanks everyone for the help.
