    I did try a uncore of 25 and before I set the ram voltage manually it had it running up around 1.66v. Neither of these helped the issue.

    Ahh well it could just be the board then, hopefully you don't have this issue when you get a new one.

    If you do then it's either settings are wrong or the memory itself.

    Unfortunately, I did not have any other ram to try. There is another member of the forum with the same board and ram whom I have talked to that is not experiencing this issue. Everything I have read lead me to believe it it an issue with the board.

    I'd for sure test with different ram if you have the same issue when you get the board back.

    Buy a cheap single stick if you can't borrow one anywhere.

    I just got the new board in yesterday and things are going no better. First time I booted up the computer I went straight into the bios and only 4GB where enabled. I set all timings and voltages manually. Vcore to 1.15, QPI/VTT to 1.275 (1.175 default), and DRAM to 1.5. On the next boot all 6GB where enabled. I shut it off for a few min and when I restarted it, it made a series of quick beeps and complained about overclocking. I restored optimized defaults and it did it again. Tried booting and "Recovering lost DRAM size...". Set voltages and timings again Vcore to 1.3. Finally got it to boot with 6GB. Could a Vcore which is too low cause issues like this?

    Right now I have Vcore @ 1.3, QPI/VTT @ 1.355, and DRAM @ 1.5. Timings manually set to 7-8-7-24-2N and tRC to 36. I'm going to shut it off for awhile and see what it does.

    I'm considering just RMAing the RAM and getting this:

    UPDATE:

    Guess what?

    "Recovering lost DRAM size..."

    Just purchased the RAM in the link above, and set up the refund RMA for these sticks.

    Sorry if it was unclear, I have ordered the new ram but don't have it yet. I have only tried FB on a Rev.2.

    UPDATE:

    Just tried FE, still does it.

    No pics of the socket. I was very careful not to make contact with any of them until the cpu was properly positioned and seated. I just hope its not too much to ask that a new motherboard comes without bent pins. Unless this is I new feature of Gigabyte boards, pre-bent cpu socket pins. They should make a sticker of that to put on the box. Anyway the computer now only wants to boot with 2GB of ram. Still waiting on my new sticks.

    Update:

    After running some test with the memory I have determined that one of the sticks is defective. When using this modules as the only ram the computer will not boot. Adding other modules will allow the computer to boot but will give the "Recovering lost DRAM size..." error no matter which slot the bad module is in. I just so happens that this particular module was in the third channel which was the main source of confusion as to the error.

    The module must have went bad shortly after installing it because it was not DOA.
