    The failure rate on this model for us in the end was beyond the joke as well. Although our same customers are using the 78 models now and have no issues.

    As it is in this industry it is hard enough to eek out a living and then this crap comes along. The funny part of it is they don't act up in the beginning, it seems it takes about 6 months for them to start acting up. They "quick-tech" (a hardware testing program) perfect and yet data corruption occurs, change board with everything else the same and everything is fine, that is a mainboard issue. It basically boils down to laziness and economics that they don't test it as well as it should be, and the little guys pays for it. Pretty sad...

    Ahh ya guys, sorry! This board does not offer ANY settings related to CPU or ram voltages or timings. Looks like an OEM type of board like Dell or HP offers where you can't adjust anything

    The DDR2 you see in the Health section is just a voltage monitor. Sounds like you may not be able to make those modules work with this board with no way to adjust things

    @ jaxparo

    They should not be advising you of that, although on any other board that would work. In reality those modules are rated to run at 1.8V so you should not be having to raise the voltages. Apparently they have not been tested on this board and may be incompatible

    Boards like these with NO options you just HAVE to buy sticks from the QVL List otherwise you may never find a pair that works
