I bought the original kit. Works great, easiest (by far) part of the project.

I'm gonna have to send you a PM regarding some prototypes.

Your pieces always turn out so nice, and that side panel has me REALLY thinking about some changes I would like to make to my box. As well as some different/custom inner pieces/drive bays.

On Topic: I really like the direction this is heading.

It's weird, because the packaging, and even the listing on NewEgg says "this memory must use 1.25" and that voltage didn't work for me during certain situations.

I've not yet (knock on wood) had another freeze or lockup by using 20% more power than spec'd.

Now I can continue with the finishing of this mod!

Super special thanks to Mr. D, he did what he could to save my bacon, helluva guy.

Well, I have what MIGHT be good news.

One of my coworkers, upon hearing my problem, says: "Man, I hate G.Skill. I'm not surprised you're having problems. The last set I had was full of s#%t about the voltage".

After that I bumped MY G.Skill RAM from 1.25v to 1.50v. Not yet had any more problems after hours of testing. I guess my 20+/hr Memtest wasn't stressing it enough?

Most likely picking up some low-profile Corsair RAM next week, and will probably not go with G.Skill again.

Anyhow, random comment made in passing seems to have save the day. :D

Brought my PC to work. After 4 days of looking into the problem the IT department has decided that it "must be software based" even though it occasionally crashes on the BIOS screen.
