OS: Windows 10 home 64 bit
Mobo: Sabertooth Z97 Mark S LGA 1150

          BIOS : 2601 (MOST RECENT)
CPU: i7 4790k @ 4ghz
CPU Cooler: H110i GTX (listing this because it is hooked up to the motherboard)
GPU: GTX 980ti MSI
PSU: EVGA Supernova 1000w
CD Drive: ASUS DVD-Writer Black SATA
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16 gb 2x8gb 240 pin ddr3 @ 1866
SSD: Samsung Evo 850 1tb


Coming from a-LOT of previous problems with this build that I've seemed to sort out, (see: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/594597/issue-on-bootup-very-strange/) I seem to have gone from getting BSODs to now only getting DRAM issues.  Long story short, every time i boot up my pc the DRAM light flashes until I hit MEMOK, then it boots fine with no hangs, no BSOD, no issues whatsoever.


I've ran Memtest86 and Prime95 for extended periods of time with no errors, so I can tell you the RAM isn't bad.


I've tried reseting the CMOS, reseating the RAM (multiple times) and running in both Auto and XMP but I keep getting the issue. I've also tried running each stick in the A2 DRAM socket as stated in the manual.


Any other thoughts would be very helpful. Thank you! :)

I'm thinking it may be my timings/voltages going to the Memory, not sure how I should try to test higher voltage without blowing up my mobo, .05 volt increases? what about the timings? :(
