From what i have been reading on evga forum this problem seems to be related with most nvidia chipsets , especially the 790i ultra

here is a video:
YouTube - EVGA 790i Ultra Video Freeze

Lot of people are experiencing this same issue and i do not think there is a solution for it atm. Maybe a new bios update will fix this in the future.
Also do you have the voltage set to 1.9v for that memory you are using?
There is a setting in the bios called "Write to precharge Delay" set that manually to 15 and also check what command rate you are using, if it is set at 1T try setting it at 2T and see how it goes.
Honestly if i was in you i would stay away from nvidia chipset at the moment =/ sell it on ebay and get your self a P35 motherboard.
I had the abit ip35 pro for a few weeks, great and stable board.
Just check evga forum EVGA Forums and see how many people are having trouble with this boards.
I believe if you are extremely skilled and know how to work you way in the bios then you can get this chipset to run properly , but if you dont i would just stay away from nvidia.
