Hello, there. Put it simple, I have a 3820 installed on a sabertooth x79 with a 4x4 g.skill set. At the time I got them, mb constantly reported dimm a1 and a2 were abnormal, I tested everything except on the CPU,and they were all good. For the past 6 months, I just put these 4 rams in slots b and d, running at dual mode. Today I got another same mb from my friend and tested them, weird thing happened on that board, slot c1 can't even detect a ram, slot c2 always reports abnormal, and, the rest 6 slots are working well.
I'm thinking is it the time to drop the conclusion and say the issue is on CPU?

Bad ram slots are common on that bd. If it were the cpu the bad slots would always stay the same.
