It may be a software error but I picked up on it and so I had to inform you of the fact.

 

 Please restart your computer and check the temperatures/voltages in the BIOS, no screenshot is required just make a note of the temperatures and the +3.3V, +5V and the +12V and post them with your next reply.
 
NB: BIOS voltage readings.
The readings are not conclusive in the BIOS as the computer is under the least amount of load, if they are higher or lower than what they should be though it does suggest a PSU problem.

The voltages shown are fine as long as the +3.3V and the +5V rails don`t get too much higher under load.

 

Can you find the Dram Voltage in the BIOS and let us know that reading please.

I searched the whole BIOS and unless I accidentally missed it I couldn't find anything remotely similar to Dram voltage the only voltage page I could find is the previous picture I sent to you.

Ok, remember my reply #14

Please download and read your manual which can be obtained from here go to pages 20, 21 where you will find the information below and page 30 which details how to use the Mem OK button on the MB.

 

Have you checked the Mem OK button.

 

Your manual will tell you how to check the voltage of the Ram, most likely it will be something to do with the ASUS MBs own software and/or overclocking etc.

 

Sorry but got to go out now but will check back later.

There should be an option to switch from Auto detect to manual, this is how you can ensure that the DRam voltage is definitely set at 1.5V.

 

Again from your MB manual;

2.4.13 DRAM Voltage [Auto] Allows you to set the DRAM voltage. The values range from 1.5V to 2.2V* with a 0.1V interval. According to Intel CPU spec, DIMMs with voltage requirement over 1.65V may damage the CPU permanently. We recommend you install the DIMMs with the voltage requirement below 1.65V.
