    Latest beta BIOS, if you want that, is located here (FE5)
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...beta-bios.html

    Intel INF drivers you want from here, second link (Exe not Zip), and then just install once in windows
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Prod...?ProductID=816

    Gigabyte SATA drivers do not install, same applies for Marvell drivers (If you are using the Marvell ports, install Magni Console driver only once in windows)

    Hey guys,

    I have read through the "How to QFlash" Tutorial and printed some of it (as I am at work).

    I also noticed the list of the newest drives which I will most likely be getting from this site rather than from Gigabyte.

    Lsdmeasap,

    I was not going to use the beta version of BIOS, just because I do not want to go with anything that is not proven. If you are suggesting it however then I would use it.

    I do not know where but I was also told that it may be better to not plug in my HDD until after I Win7 completed installed on my SSD. Should I follow that recommendation or does it not really matter?

    I do have one more question and this may not be the place to ask it but I would like to set-up my computer so that it uses its space in the most efficient manner. What I mean by that is Having the OS on the SSD, wouldn't my programs default to this location? I know that I can probably save them on my HDD manually by chossing the target location but I am sure some of you guru's know of a much better way of having this done, the same goes for other default locations like my documents.

    Once again, thanks everyone for their help, it is much appreciated.

    Beta bios's are safe to use so don't worry,I would just plug in your ssd and add second hdd later as its easier and sometimes the os can install itself on the wrong hard drive,you can choose the destination hdd/ssd to install your programs,ideally you want to keep all your main programs on the ssd and drag n drop all the things that arn't important as in start up performance wise to your storage hdd

    OK
    So I just updated my BIOS via QFlash.
    I believe I did everything correctly.
    I did however notice that when ever I enter the Q Flash Ultility DMI is set to Enabled, even if I save and restart it is still enabled.

    Anyway, I am installing windows now, I set the Sata controllers correctly I believe (and hope).

    I hope there was not anything else that had to be done before the OS install.

    I am not running a RAID, so I dont have to worry about setting that up as AHCI before my windows install.

    I never changed any of my memory settings although I did take a quick look at them.

    Man this thing is so quit, the loudest sound was from the CD-ROM installing windows and also is getting acoustically dwarfed by my current PC.

    So, I am up and running, I am probably going to just shut her down and do some more research.

    I am trying to not only get her up and running in an optimal state that I can monitor, which I will with all of the recommended software but I want to really try to keep this PC organized and maintain which I have been unsuccessful doing with my previous ones. Anyway, thanks again to everyone for their help.

    By default in q-flash Keep DMI pool is always set to Enable. Gigabyte should changes this to be disabled by default. But for what ever reason they have not done so. It is just recommended that you disable this.

    After flashing a bios and after Making final changes prior to letting windows boot for the first time after a flash. Right before the windows logo you should see at the bottom on the screen it say something about rebuilding DMI pool data after that point It is recommended that you can go back into the bios and make changes to it.

    OK

    No updated since last night as I am at work at the moment.

    I figured I would post this little Video showing my PC.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?<wbr>v=qAiAQm6fW2k, I think I am allowed to do this and if not I apologize.

    I am reading up what some people who have my same set-up set all of the memory setting at, so that I may copy them for my self. I am assuming that after I become more knoweldgable about memory and BIOS I may be able to tweak the setting to make them the most optimal for me but I an most definitely not at that stage yet.

    I want just want to take a second to say something about this forum.
    I have posted threads and contributed to various types of forums from woodworking, to structured wiring, to genealogical research , to business forums and never before have I had such timely responses from such high ranking members before and for that I thank you.

    Hey Guys,
    Sorry for the delay, I had to go down the shore to open the house for my grandfather, which after turning on the water, I realized I also had to fix some leaking pipes as well as other things, but anyway back to my PC.

    So, now I have windows installed and the following drivers installed:
    Intel Chipset Drivers
    Marvell Console Driver (SATA3)
    Realtek Audio
    Lan Drivers
    NEC USB 3.0 Driver
    Also the Drivers that came with the Sapphire HD 6870

    I also Installed
    CPU-Z
    IntelBurnTest
    Prime95
    I tried to install MemTest86+ but I have to find another dowmload that works for me.

    I also have noticed that my HDD is being reconized in the BIOS and even some places in Win7 but not under my computer like the SSD is.

    I want to get this fixed, before I start to try and overclock.

    One other thing that has happened is that I went to run the IntelBurnTest with there default settings and I started it and watched for maybe the first 4 or 5 five test to be successful. I walked away and I came back some time later and the PC was shut down. That worried me a little bit so haven't really done much since.

    Below are my current BIOS setting which I think are mostly stock.

    From those settings I would set,dram voltage according to your ram,set spd memory multiplier to 12x,set uncore freq to 24x,set qpi/vtt voltage to 1.315v,you could try manual ram timings of 8 8 8 24 it might help

    As for hdd makesure the hdd SATA and power cables arnt loose,I can't think whatelse you could try,as for stability try 10 runs on high in Intel burn test with those changes
