    Sounds like it was a BIOS compatibility problem with your memory?

    Did you flash/update Both BIOS to FH this time?

    Tried multiple times to update to FI bios again, but with the usual melt-down routine. So, I wasn't able to get far enough to use the Alt-F12 trick.
    I see that this RAM is not on Gigabyte's QVL which may explain it. Also looks like Corsair used an Asus P6T Deluxe to qualify it.
    At this point I'm contemplating either swapping to the Asus board or purchasing one of the only two Gigabyte QVL candiates I can find here in NZ. I should have done more research before purchasing the parts.
    Thank you for your help with this problem guys, it is much appreciated.

    Sorry, I meant to say did you flash to FI for both chips, but I guess your reply answered that as well.

    Very well could be the memory itself. If you are shopping for memory and plan to keep this board let me know where you shop at, give me a few links, and your $ limits and I can have a look if you like. Also tell me what brands you prefer, and I will look through those as well as ones I know work and give you some suggestions.

    Can you get Mushkin where you live? Not trying to be a fanboy or anything but all of their kits work with Gigabyte boards now, at least the upper end ones I know for sure, as they sent in some sets a while back to the QVL team for qualification when I did my last DDR3 review on them.

    Here is what I can get my hands on in NZ:
    Technology content trusted by users all around the world :: TweakTown
    The big question is, regardless of what Kingston's memory config machine says about compatibility, is that the same as the kit that appears on Gigabyte's QVL? Listed in the QVL as "KVR1333D3N9/2G" with remark 3 pcs, so it seems the QVL implies a 6Gig kit.

    Ahh! That link is no good?

    Why does it say Tweaktown, then link to Kingston? Anyway, link me to a direct kingston page with the model you are asking about and I will check the QVL for you to be sure.

    Thanks!

    Yes, that looks to be the same kit to me. I think the K3 at the end of the model means kit of three, so 3 sticks of KVR1333D3N9 which is in the QVL, and of course the /12GB /6GB or /3GB in retail products would mean the total amount

    Well, roll me in honey and tie me to an ant hill!
    I had left the PC completely powered down & unplugged after the usual boot failure, having tried yet another angle. Got annoyed and went to work, leaving the PC alone for 12 hours or so. Came home thinking I'll order that Kingston RAM kit, tried to power up the PC for the sheer entertainment value of watching it fail to boot, but the jolly thing started up, rebooted itself like these things do sometimes, and has been stable ever since.
    Short version, bclk at 160, 3.2GHz hitting 3.36 with Turbo, ram running at 1280/9-9-9-24-1T.
    Prime95 & Intel burn tests come up good so far.
    Have attached the current bios settings in case anyone is interested. No doubt there is a bit more tweaking to do, but this represents some happy progress.

    Thank you for your help and guidance with this! Big ups.
    If the problem returns I will try the Kingston + QVL angle.

    Ahh, sounds good!

    Is it still running good now?

    I can help you with settings if you want, once you are sure this is resolved?
