Yes Jaquith these have to be the worst ram i have every own.
Bios Profile- states VCSSA 1.350v, I set it before with no luck, but ill give 1.20v a shot
I mean this very sincerely, RMA that kit for something else like they're the plague, and do not I repeat do not
allow the VCSSA Voltage >1.20v so run them at their Defaults.
There are (2) two voltages that are known to permanently degrade the SB-E CPU
: 1. vCore of 1.55v and higher and 2. VCCSA of 1.35v and higher. This permanent degradation happens in a matter of hours and not days, weeks or months, but hours!
So I can certainly understand why those kits have been Deactived so quickly. We might as well play air hockey with your CPU -- it would be safer for it.
Please heed my advice. I concur those are indeed the worst kits I ever seen and worst a real danger -- it's scary that Patriot would have allowed them to be sold.
