    Well, in my case I just got this board two days ago, and using the tips already provided by the tech support guy in this forum I was able to solve the dual channel problem. So I don't have the frustration others might justifiably have.

    Looks like you had a different issue then, one involving dual channel, but the cause was something different I guess.

    Also, I don't see why you guys don't email some tech journalists or at least the GB tech support guy who is supposed to be here (but isn't). See the sticky thread for his email address.

    GB needs to be made aware of this issue and some pressure applied, as telling the tech support scrubs obvioulsy doesn't work since the issue has been around for a while...
    I am on the beta bios now and it didn't help. I emailed the person you told me to a couple pages back and still did not receive a response.
    I submitted another RMA. I am waiting for a reply from Gigabyte to except it.

    Well that's the guy form Gigabyte who's supposed to be here in this "official" forum but isn't, so it's really no wonder.
    Email gary.key "at" anandtech.com. Anandtech is great and as much as they've mentioned customer service in the last reviews I bet they will find this interesting and will go out of their way to get you help/get this issue resolved.

    wow, this thread blew up. I tried writing everything down from everest ultimates reading on my now gskill mem. then go into bios and adjusted everything to those reading. I still have those settings as well. I have ordered new g.skill ram. (lower timings) I still need to read pages 6-10 more thoroughly. But i will email anyone its takes. Also my board is 1.1 on F6. nothing overclocked at all. Stock everything. I havent tried a few of those things post that I glanced over but i might tonight. I went to RMA this board one and then thought it didnt need it. So im out cold on this one. very disappointed being my first ever build. Maybe ill buy a dell next time. :( i can also get any setting requested. id like to fix this.

    Nice work. Sounds like you might have some answer soon, but I suspect it will be RMA until you get something that at least holds stock settings for your equipment or get different gigabyte board model.

    So you have gave up on trying to get things to work, for a RMA then right?

    Sorry to hear, hope your RMA goes over smoothly

    If you would like some help, please post me your specs and full settings and I will advise back, if you think settings can help (Which is normally all that is wrong, but not always)

    I am waiting to here back form Gary from ANandtech. he was contacting someone at Gigabyte to bring this issue to there attention and possibly getting me a beta bios. I did get a response for an RMA for the board but waiting on Gary to see what happens. I am tempted to either go buy a C2D or a UD3P. It seems the people running dual cores have not had one issue and people running quads on the UD3P version.
