Default More bother

My main desktop computer started playing up. It began last summer with it being difficult to boot. Then a few days ago I had similar problems, but worse. After an update from Debian today it just would not boot. The symptoms were random instability and when I finally got to Grub I got immediate kernel panics. The BIOS would not register voltage changes nor things like XMP, even after a flash to the latest BIOS. I tried removing the battery temporarily. I switched PSUs. All no go. In the end I ordered a new motherboard for my Haswell, but it being a H81 chipset I am not sure I will get the most out of my 2400MHz DDR3.
