    Not at all, it should only take 2 or 3 steps to increase to 1.95v. Be sure to save the settings when you exit the bios

    And I like Tmagic650's psu choice better :) (though the Antec is very good). Corsair makes very fine power supplies. Can you increase that to 1.95?

    i carnt found anything to set it manual on bios. its just shaded grey. could my psu be failing so that why im get bsod, by the way when i get the bsod i just press restart and computer starts up normal, dnt know if this helps. is the voltage supose to change on its own.

    Have you gotten any blue screens? If so, attach the latest minidump files but please don't zip them individually.

    I would say that your psu is under powered for your rig and therein is one of your major issues.

    Does your BIOS show the voltage set at Auto?

    The newer motherboards can auto detect the memory that is installed, but like I said, ASUS is very picky when it comes to the type and speed of memory installed. i can't believe that there is no manual setting to the memory settings. Do you see anything marked auto? If you do, select the line and hit enter. You should see a box with auto and manual in it. Select manual and all those grayed out lines should be active now

    I'm running an Antec Earthwatts 550Watt supply, and i do like Antec. i use their cases all the time. For my newer hi-end builds I use Corsair 650watt or higher supplies

    What's the bios maker Award or Phoenix?
    It may be located in the "overclocking" section of the bios

    Good lock with this, and like i said, it should be a simple bios memory adjustment that will fix this issue. Hopefully they won't have to change the RAM
