SEEMS like it...

It actually freaks me out, i don't want to RMA, every component seems fine on it's own...

My System Specs

Default

In many cases I've noticed folks are "afraid" to push a tad more vdimm then "recommended specs", undervolting vdimm, especially when OC'ing CPU = BSOD.

My RAM is recommended 1.65v, been running at 1.68v for a few yrs now, no issues, back down to 1.65v and BSOD's.

Yes,

And there is a few reasons for that, in my case:

1- I never really OCed/overvolted my RAM sticks (any builds)

2- Because of SB's 1.5V new standard and woes about running higher RAM voltages on a SB because of onboard memory controller...

3- Because I've never dealt with OC'ed CPUs that have an onboard memory controller....
My A64 did, but never OCed, due to shytty motherboard...

4- hesitating between mobo being a little wimp to feed proper voltage to the sticks (ram vdroop-like), or
having sticks that aren't following strict voltage specs....
now, I don't have seen a BSOD yet, which is a little comforting...
