    but default to 1066 7-7-7-20

    i dont have a usb or floppy, i do have an external hd
    no idea if that will let my update drivers and bios

    Theres a lot of people - including me - having problems with RAM in that board.

    It seems to only be on a cold boot - so if it crashes try powering off and powering back on again.

    Have you tried running Memtest86+ ? You can run it from a boot CD or boot USB so no need for operating system.

    That might help!

    hmm, i dont think its a ram error, i dont know
    these brands were on the listed qualify list for the board, and when i run xmp, it runs at my rated speed, nothing happens, no lights or leds on the board
    everytime i boot, it beeps once, then strats normally
    it sometimes doesnt recognize the hd and cd drive, those where on the blue sata
    when i plug them on the sata 8,9 , my cd runs fast, reads cd fast, but then it goes to choose drive to where to install windows 7, i just cant get a drive, but when i look in bios the drives are there. i just use one seagate 1tb hd for windows. no fancy raid
    what funny is it takes so lon ng to install windows, when i restart and look for drivers when windows ask me, some part of windows are already install on the hd like its already there.
    also now i get no boot mgr error msg when i try to boot to hd.
    i guess i have to take drive out, put on external esata box and reformate the drive with my laptop
    its just a weird problem/
    i set drives to ahci, cd boot, still slow, except on 8,9 then they all just dont see the drive anymore, suckzors

    you should plug your os hdd in port0 and any sata dvd drives in port4 or 5,disable floppy drive from boot list and drive A from bios even if you dont have them installed,then try installing windows,if still freezes try disabling intel turbo boost

    format your seagate to fat32,save bios file on it and flash bios with q-flash,once flashed then format the hdd back to ntfs,that should work and save you buying a usb stick
