    So a friend of mine has a 9590 CPU, Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z mobo, and 8gb x 2 DDR3 2400mhz G.skill Trident RAM. I'm trying to set it up to run the RAM at 2400 but it freezes up almost instantly after booting into Windows. I guess you have to overclock a bit to run 2400mhz properly, but I've never messed with overclocking an AMD.

    Can anyone give me some pointers on where to start with minimum OC settings to try to get 2400mhz stable?

    Did you try the XMP settings?

    Yeah, the profile loads just fine but it's really unstable once booted to Windows... the plot thickens though, as I noticed a system freeze running at "optimized default" BIOS settings. I decided to run P95 blend testing @ 1333 (the default setting) and lo and behold, I'm seeing WHEA errors and CPU L1/L2 cache errors. I've verified the CPU is set to factory 9590 clocks and such so I'm baffled to what might be going on here. Bad CPU? Bad RAM?

    edit I'm going to delete this and make a new thread
