    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.
    ____Consider your PSU to be the foundation from which all else is built upon. Anything built upon a weak foundation is poorly built.

    Been trying to respond to your PM with no luck. My messages say they have been sent but it doesn't appear they actually get to you. They also not showing up in my sent folder.

    After a few days of extensive work, trying to resolve first, the assumed problem I had with the motherboard bios and secondly, the difficulty of just getting Windows 7 to install; I am very glad to report that my system is up and running smoothly. I had some amazing help and support and it's because of that help and support that my issues are resolved.
    Summary:
    Bios issue: It turns out that the bios is supposed to report a slower CPU speed on the bios main page when EIST is enabled. ASUS support didn't know that and couldn't help. At least the support people I talked to. They insisted I rma the board. However, I now know how to keep the CPUs running at full clock speed all the time, even when in BIOS, if the need arises. The method for doing that is stated earlier in this thread.
    Windows install: My goal was to install a reduced down version of Windows 7 using Win ToolKit using a bootable USB drive. It turns out that the problem I was having with the install of Windows was because of some setting I used in trying to reduce the Windows install. After just going with the default ISO and not trying to modify it with Win ToolKit, I was able to get a clean install in the first shot. When I say I, I really mean with the valuable help I got along the way.

    ASUS support did not know about the EIST/SpeedStep feature on an Intel CPU?! EIST has existed on Intel CPU's since the Pentium D was introduced, in 2006, and possibly before that.

    AMD has a similar power saving feature on their CPUs. These features are nothing new, exotic, or hidden. They are not used only on high end or enterprise CPUs, they all have it. Laptop/mobile PCs would be no where near as light and portable as they are today without power and heat reducing features like EIST/SpeedStep.

    If the support personnel of any mother board manufacture did not know about these features and how they work, that is unbelievable. Are these people simply not trained, or is this a regrettable language/communication barrier? Can you imagine the number of boards that have been returned due to incompetence like this? An entire RMA process and all that it involves and costs could have been avoided with a two minute explanation. This really sounds almost to impossible to be true.

    OTOH, if someone is building a PC of their own, they really ought to spend some time educating themselves about the hardware they have, and how it works.

    You definitely have a good point. If ASUS didn't tell me I had a problem I wouldn't be in this boat. I assumed they knew what was going on and thus assumed I had a bad board. Also of note, this board is not for a novice which I am. I admit I'm a little over my head here. But I've been fortunate enough to get some great help and I'm back in the game and really enjoying this machine.
