    I have the same problem. I get the recovering lost DRAM size. It only recognizes 8GB of the 12GB RAM. It does this three times before it boots. The Graphics card only works with generic VGA drivers.

    System is as follows:
    Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Motherboard
    Intel BX80613i7980X Core i7 980X Extreme Edition Processor - 3.33GHz, LGA 1366
    Patriot PV7312G1600LLK Sector 7 12GB PC12800 RAM - DDR3, 1600MHz, 3x4096MB, 8-8-8-24, Non-ECC, Unbuffered
    EVGA 015-P3-1480-AR GeForce GTX 480 Video Card - 1536MB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0, Dual DVI, HDMI, SLI, DirectX 11, Fermi
    Ultra X3 ULT40311 1000-Watt Power Supply
    Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64BIT

    I haven't been able to find bent pins but it is very difficult to see.

    Pics are a bit fuzzy, and too close and too much flash, but I do see a bent pin or two I think.

    Here for sure



    Have you already tried 1.35-1.45/1.5 QPI/Vtt? If so you may need to RMA the board for the bent pins, unless you can fix them (It's very tricky since they are so thin)

    Well spotted. I saw the same thing.

    Agreed. Fixing them is a right pain. a whittled down c0cktail stick and a hair drier can work (heat the socket then bend the pin back) but it's tricky.

    Definitely RMA the board IMO, then be ultra careful when inserting the CPU and mounting the heat sink. Common causes of bent pins are a roughly inserted (not as naughty as it sounds) CPU or too much pressure from the heat sink mounts.
