Been having this error randomly for a while now. The only RAM I have been able to run without CATERR failures in some cheap PNY Anarchy 2400 16GB (8x2). When I built this I had 32 GB (16x2) of GSkill 2400 (Can't remember the exact model) and kept getting CATERR failures, bought the PNY RAM to have something to use while I RMA'd the GSkill with Newegg and it stopped throwing the CATERR's. Bought the Corsair RAM two days ago removed the PNY RAM and within 30 minutes started getting CATERR failures again. Put the PNY RAM back in, no issues. Doesn't matter what I am doing, I can be browsing with Chrome or playing anything from Kerbal to watching videos with VLC or Plex. There is no rhyme or reason to why and no particular time, sometimes it will run smooth for an hour to 2 hours sometimes right after a reboot. There is nothing logged in Event Manager at all about it. And yes I have run MEMTEST for hours with no issues.
Any ideas? Thanks all.
 
Z270 Classified K (BIOS v.1.03 but does it with 1.01 and 1.02)
Core i7-7700K Not OC'ed (Temps are running 27-29c idle and 32-38c under medium load)
16GB PNY Anarchy 2400 no issues
16GB Corsair Vengeaence RGB 3000 (CATERR's)
2x EVGA GTX 1070 Black Edition w/HB SLI Bridge (Not OC'ed)
 
<Edit> Disregard the CPUz tag on my profile right now I have returned everything stock until I figure this out.

could be a bad cpu, thats the only time i have seen that error, it was on a server. swapped the MB, RAM PSU still got crashes, replaced the CPU and it has not crashed in 3 years.
 can you set the ram speed to default in bios, see if it runs and the cpu rated speed of 2400

Thanks for the reply,
I have set everything to default in the BIOS (no XMP profiles etc.) the only thing that runs with no issues is the PNY RAM. I am really hoping it's not the CPU as I am way past the return time through Newegg with it (bought it in late Feb early Mar.)

i would contact intel and get it replaced, sounds like you just have a cpu with a bad memory controller. is there anyway you can test the ram in another system before you start rma'ing parts, wouldnt hurt just to be sure its not the ram. I know its unlikely that both sets are bad but it could happen. also what are the voltages on the ram. i know DDR3 would give me trouble with some of the PC3L stuff.

Unfortunately I have no way to test it on another system, (I am working on getting another system for just such a thing but haven't gotten around to it yet, my entire budget, and then some, went to this system).

Update to anyone who is possibly still watching this thread, going with quadlatte's advice about contacting Intel, they RMA'd my 7770k and I just received the new one today. Absolutely no issues now. So big thanks to quadlatte for the advice!

Good to hear. I think alot of times we pull our hair out thinking it cant be the cpu but sometimes it is.
