I've also monitored my temp during the test and i never get above 55c (i7 2600k). So I was wondering if this means that I have a PSU error, or something else that I'm missing entirely. I'm sure this is a rather ignorant question, but I'm still pretty new at this. Thanks.
It's most likely the RAM timings on your system if it is overclocked. Is it a stock system?
