    Default EP35-DS3R rev 2.1

    Is there a chart available somewhere to interpret the Phase Array LED display that shows on boot between the memory banks? Can't seem to find any useful information in the manual.

    There are 6 LEDs and there are 6 power phases for the CPU as each CPU power phase is turned on it also turns on an LED....
    Take care,

    Thats a start, but do the colors signify anything, on startup my system has the top 2 leds red. the remainder are green, They only come on momentarily during the boot process, then go out.

    They will go out if you are overclocking because you have the speedstep and other features that DES uses disabled.

    They are just there to show you how many cpu power phases your CPU is using, so that when you use the DES software you could see it shutting some of them off to save power. The colors only specify "More" phases. Green to red as it uses more phases that is all.
