    but that's the problem: it's a HUGE "if"

    ditto for watercooling: it's an active system and waterblocks are about as reliable as small-size fans (I read too many horror stories about them)

  15. why would 4gb ram suddenly be insufficient with...

    why would 4gb ram suddenly be insufficient with C-states active but sufficient without C-states? makes no sense

    which Maximus board do you have? what CPU?
  16. Maximus VIII Hero endless RESET LOOP (with C-states) : still not fixed?

    question & problem's basically in the title
