Run memtest86 on it. If it passes the full test, there's nothing wrong with your ram.

First, you need to know them. When you bought your RAM, they give you number in a 2-3-3-6 fashion and are labeled in the following order:

CAS Latency?RAS to CAS Delay?RAS Precharge?TRAS

The settings are located in your BIOS. Most likely under Frequency/Voltage Control if you have AMI BIOS.

The timings are 3-3-3-8 on the RAM (according to Corsair spec).

The RAM timing settings are set to 3-3-3-8 in the BIOS and have been since day one.

I'm honestly running out of ideas here. Should I just RMA the RAM back to Newegg and see if it's some undetected problem? Or should I not take the 15% hit or w/e it is, and just buy a new heatsink for my processor? Or maybe scrap the mobo. I dunno. Any other programs/diagnostics I can run on various components?
Very sexy hero, omg
