    Always appreciative of any help you can give. These settigns are what I have right now that won't boot. Also I have a 3Gb kit of Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600 brand new lying here in the drawer if you think we need it......

    Thought just for giggles that I'd toss in the Corsair DDR3-1600 and give it a try. Booted right up at these settings:

    Make sure you Load Optimize Defaults in the BIOS. It seems a few of your settings aren't enabled/disabled by default.

    Try leaving Load Line Calibration on.

    Optimized Defaults kills my RAID setup and a few other things. Tried leaving Load Line Calibration on, and my bench scores went down....

    That's fine since it's reverting all of your settings to default. You can easily go back into the BIOS and set your RAID again.

    As for the lower bench scores after enabled LLC, how much of a lower score are you getting? If it's a few hundred, that is normal scoring.

    Must be normal scoring then. Seeing voltage in CPU-Z way different than in BIOS tho'. Doesn't LLC take care of that? I had it disabled........

    Optimized default does NOT Kill your RAID, and is suggested for sure!!! You can't start with or overclock using Fail Safe settings as many hidden settings will be incorrect and several visible ones as well.

    When you load optimized defaults, save and apply and reboot BACK TO THE BIOS. DO NOT LOAD WINDOWS. Sorry for the caps, but this is the issue and what makes you think optimized kills your array. Once you reboot back to the BIOS go back into the Integrated Peripherals page and set RAID Again, then reboot BACK TO THE BIOS and go into the advanced BIOS pages and into Hard Disk Boot Priority and move your array to the top of the boot order.

    Then your array will be fine, as long as you follow those steps any time you flash the BIOS or load optimized you must do that, in that order. Tips similar to all of that for loading optimized and or flashing your BIOS with a RAID Array are posted here >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    I do suggest you update to the latest BIOS F10a >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/giga...st-bios-28441/

    Then I do advise you do not use the 2.0V rated memory, sure you can but it is not suggested as it was not made for X58. If you use it, you have to set the ram voltage to 1.9-20V and be sure the QPI/Vtt voltage remains within .5 of that which would be 1.5V QPI/Vtt for 2.0V ram voltage. Now you see why it is not best

    LLC Does not affect benchmarks, this must have just been general benchmark variances that you would have anytime you run a benchmark between different bootups or time periods. LLC Will make your CPU Voltage stay closer to the Idle voltage shown in CPU-z when under full load. This does not affect the difference between the BIOS setting and what you get at idle (Vdrop), only between idle and load (Vdroop).

    tRFC of 45 is WAY to low for triple channel at 1600Mhz. I suggest you use 74-84 or above for this setting, otherwise you will fail memory tests.

    If you need full suggested settings from us, please load optimized defaults and start over again. Then give us your settings that fail and advise which ram you are using and we can advise back

    Bad storms in the area, I'll have to do Optimized Defaults later......perhaps tomorrow night, full day tomorrow.

    Got a link from Stasio. What's the best overall method to flash, Qflash w/USB drive or Floppy??? Also I had downloaded it before, but according to the guide, the downloaded file consists of 3 files, when extracting them I only get 2 files???
