Yeah, well that's the old site and old version. You still are having errors but the screen output will be 'fixed' with the newer version.
On the Intel i5-3570K and ASUS P8Z77-V use at least BIOS 1015 and if needed update only via ASUS EZ Flash 2 from the BIOS.
1. The kit needs to be installed into the 'Blue' DIMM slots ; CPU: | blank | 4GB | blank | 4GB |
2. Speaking of the BIOS, for now:
F5 ; Load Optimized Defaults
AI Overclock Tuner -> XMP with Profile 1
VCCSA Voltage -> Manual ; IF any Errors from Memtest
VCCSA Voltage -> 1.20v ; IF any Errors from Memtest
F10 ; Save and Exit = YES
3. Create a new bootable copy of Memtest86+ and run Memtest86+ V4.20 for 4-passes and stop if any errors are detected, there's no point in continuing.
IF (1) stick is 'good' and the other is bad then contact either the reseller or Corsair and request a 'Cross-Ship' RMA if possible to reduce downtime IF you cannot live with 4GB of RAM for a week or two.
Don't OC the BCLK, use the CPU Multiplier only! So leave the BCLK = 100MHz and use the CPU Multiplier on any SB/IB K CPU.
Adjusting the BCLK on any LGA 1155 corrupts the PCIe & SATA which are all connected. In order to get some oddball "ram to 14##" value you must have adjusted the BCLK which is the only way I can imagine that number.
I did as you said. I'm pretty sure everything is ok, luckily. Thank you for all your help, I was very close to send my RAM back, and I was thinking of doing the same with my motherboard, so you saved my there.
