    My system was unstable at stock, I'm running nothing different bar the board and 4670k, although I've a feeling it's RAM settings. I only just got my loop sorted today, so I'll have a proper play through.

    I've had to go through 5 Windows 8 installs though, hopefully it's okay now.
    i think i can see where you're going wrong
