    I believe that I have found a resolution to this from Corsair. They are saying to set the CPU/NB Voltage +.2 Volts and set the memory Voltage to 1.65 Volts then test for stability. I hope this works...

    We hope that too... If not, could you make sure that your memory kit is compatible with the motherboard - or just simply post your kit's model number?

    I made sure it was on the list before I ordered it. CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9

    Can someone please tell me how to make these changes? I'm a noob to overclocking or setting manual RAM settings?

    Is it ok to post this question in the forum for my MB since nobody here seems to know how to make these changes to my BIOS? If it needs to be closed first, can a moderator please close the thread?
