    i4930K Issues Since Day 1.


      I built a system utilizing the following:


      ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition Motherboard

      64GB Kingston HyperX Beast (8x8GB) 2133MHz DDR3 PC3-17000 KHX21C11T3K2/16X (XMP)

      Core i7 4930K Processor

      Thermaltake RGB1250W Powersupply

      And (2) ATI Firepro W7000 graphics cards.


      I have been chasing memory detection issues and video card issues since day one.  At first, I thought it was the motherboard because it would randomly shut down and bluescreen with my original GTX680 card.  After the motherboard was replaced with a brand new one from ASUS, the issue still continued and then Galaxy sent me a replacement graphics card.  After that still didn't fix the issue, I inherited the (2) Firepro cards.  It runs *pretty* stable on just one card and I have less bluescreen issues, but still issues exist.  I can NOT run them in Crossfire what so ever.  It just won't boot.  On top of that, the memory can not be detected via XMP correctly.  Even with standard settings and the EXACT same memory in every slot, it's seeing a mix of 1333mhz and 1600mhz across the board.


      I just never thought of the processor possibly being the culprit.  Is there anything that can be done?
