What RAM Power to 2.5 - do you mean the CPU/NB voltage? shouldn't be needed that high w/ only 8gb of 1333, and it better not be DRAM Voltage, you'll fry the sticks......Post up yopur DRAM timings and your system voltages

I just changed the dram frequency from 1033 to 1333 but most of the settings are at auto like CPU-nb voltage and dram timing CPU voltage is at 1.425500

Raise CPU-NB voltage to 1.23 - you show it as AUTO

Then let's try manually setting the DRAM to 1333,, base timings to 9-9-9-27, CR 2T or 2N and DRAM voltage 1.5

Still getting a black screen seconds after logging into account on windows. Do you think it's really the memory?

Might be, do you have any other sticks or could you borrow a couple - if they run fine, then prob one or both of your sticks is bad

Happens more than I like, but generally NO from Asus, ASRock, or GB, every once in a while one gets by the inspectors....it's much more common with MSI, BioStar and some of the others, their QC is pretty poor IMO

So I need to call Msi support and tell them my problem. And every time the screen goes blank my fans go quiet. And I have liquid cool not a heatsink

Do you know anybody you could borrow a PSU from for long enough to just test with your rig
