    Ok, I have flashed up to F9 and benchmarked the crap out of this thing. STR and resumed 3 times in a row with no problems at all. Waited several minutes between each STR state. My system now acts as it should with both DIMMs in bank 1 and 3 (dual channel). Wow...that was like pulling teeth out of a great white shark! But worth the wait! Now my Gigabyte system is finally stable!!
    THANKS LSD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I must agree - thanx LSD! Thanks for keeping this issue alive and keeping the pressure on until it was addressed.

    Other than this issue - I have no issues with this board. Quite a difference from my experiences with my Abit boards/support in the last year.

    Just came back from S3 successfully with HPET enabled. Vista Ultimate 64bit SP1. Still using overclocked processor, haven't tweaked with RAM yet.

    For those that are successful, are you using DES Advance or not?

    Absolutely not. I hate EIST so I turned it off. Without EIST, energy saver is worthless.

    This all sounds very promising! I'm thinking I'm going to just install the new BIOS tonight and RMA that extra RAM I ordered.

    By the way... I failed to mention this before, but in WoW I've been getting errors along the lines of The memory could not be "read" that occur very randomly. Sometimes it won't happen for days, other times it'll happen every couple of hours.

    I wonder if this new BIOS will reduce or eliminate the occurance of that issue.

    I have not yet had a chance to really test the RAM extensivly. One of these nights I'll set up a memory test before I go to sleep if the problem persists with the new BIOS.

    @Rezerected: DES is worthless - just uninstall it. S3 is real energy savings...as close as you can get to shutdown. If you are still having problems, I suspect it is your BIOS settings. This fix was night and day for me.
    @Arctia: I personally have turned Speedstep back on, and seem to have no problems with it. I actually like the idea that my machine idles at 2.4G when doing essentially nothing, but cranks up to 3.4G when required. Keeps everything cool and I feel better about the longevity of my hardware. I agree that it's best to have the Windows runtime energy tools off until you have your BIOS dialed in, then turn them back on once everything is stable. LSD will say keep them off, but there you go...
    @Kythlyn: I have had some random memory errors at Windows runtime in the past, too...in every case, it came down to memory timings. Now it's rock solid, even after S3...yaay!

    Install and working! My rig has been in and out of S3 sleep without a problem. looks like Gigabyte final took note of our complaints.
