that kingston ram is rated 1.9v
all i5 memory is below 1.65v
and you might as well wait on revised boards from gigabyte with lotess sockets p55A-ud4p
i will be buying a second i5 rig just as soon as they release the p55A-ud4p=lotess socket+sata3+usb3.0

yup as soon as you use the two you will see the lotess gives better pressure than the foxconn
its not just for extreme overclocking its for many issues
foxconn socket did not make proper contact on all my cpu leads, and some no contact

And, some shorted out and cooked off both the CPU and MB at the same time.
I'd wait to get a late model revision of the i5 MB if I was you.

This only happen in high overclocking. You can have a 4.0 -4.4 GHZ stable without these problem. Anand add them at like...5Ghz...

Ask for more.
