Having a reboot loop problem on my new sistem

ga x58a ud3r
i7920 (nhu12p)
nvidia fx1800
xms3 12gb
corsair vx550 psu

Tried removing/switching componentes (except psu due to a lack of a spare) and still got the reboot loop when finishing windows 7 install.

Tried a bunch of di¿fferent setting in bios and no luck.

Right now i got a stable system cause i lowered the cpu multiplier from 20x to 15x.
Could it be problem with my voltage settings (running on auto/default)? maybe a bad mobo?

Have you tested the RAM (memtest86+ 4)? Tried one stick at a time? Checked the socket for bent pins?

Corsair ram is troublesome unless you adjust the voltage/timing manually.

turns out the reboot loop was due to an inaccurate vcore setting (auto set it to 1.25 v ) so i just upped to 1.26 and solved the reboot loop.

However im having trouble with the RAM. in windows 7 64 bit under system info it says: 12gb installed, 8 usable.

Tried switching sticks (like 15 combos) . Installed one by one to make sure I didnt get a defective ddr.
I tried adjusting setting manually ( raised QPI/VTT from 1.15-default to 1.3, clock settings 9 -9-9-24 from 8-8-8-20-default, and raised dram voltage to 1.64 from 1.5 auto/default settings) and problem persists.
Dont think its a defective mobo or RAM stick cause the system recognized them just fine.
