Ive changed the timings manually to 7 7 7 20 and upped the voltage to the DDR3 to 1.6 and it seems to have done the trick. Running at 1866Mhz.

CPU at stock.

According to both the OcUK listing, and the OCZ website, that memory is rated for 1.65v. That may give you some extra stability!

I had a similar problem with my OCZ platinum PC3-10666. Prime95 crashed the PC in 10 seconds with DDR3 voltage at default (1.6v) but setting it to 1.95 as its rated (EVP) made it perfectly stable.

Thanks ive settled on 1.64v 8-8-8-24 super stable now. Very happy, and temps seem good.

Im just using the stock cooler presently for the i7 once the cash flow gets going again might upgrade to the Corsair H50.
