    what stability test do you recommend? I know of prime95 and linx (with new library) and I ran linx for 15 passes with max memory with no errors. I ran prime95 small FFT for about 3 hours with no errors either, max temps were about 60c-65c on all 4 cores.
    I do not know, maybe I am imagining all of this and the errors in the event viewer are just driver related or windows update installed some update that gives hardware errors. I will try installing windows 7 x64 without SP1 and see if everything is ok, will also use windows memory testers and hard drive testing.

    Also could it be possible that I have a B2 board that says B3 on it? maybe the sata ports are defective, anyway to check? I also noticed the PCH heatsink is under the end of my video card, perhaps the heat from the card is causing an issue? I know the heatsink was very warm to the touch when I took my gpu out.

    the performance issues I am experiencing is as follows.

    1 - When I game, I usually have vlc or some other media player open on my second monitor playing videos. When the video ends and switches to another video in the playlist, the game lags a little and the fps drops by half for a few seconds then returns to normal.

    2 - when moving windows in windows 7, there is slight lag and stuttering when moving them. If I move them really fast, they sometimes freeze for a sec then move to the desired place.

    3 - event viewer errors. I get over-utilization of video resources and a degrade in windows desktop manager. This happens every time there is program that uses the video card. I also get this error under kernel-power
    Processor 2 was throttled by an entity other than the kernel power manager.
    IA32_CLOCK_MODULATION MSR = 0x2.
    Elapsed time since last event logged = 0s.
    Log interval = 1000 events.

    not sure if related to cpu turbo.

    here is a pic of hwinfo64, let me know if you see anything out of the ordinary. keep in mind I only have 1 memory dimm installed in slot #2 as slot 1 is obstructed by my cpu heatsink fan.

    Prime95 blend, customized with MinFFT 128k, memory to use 3000(or whatever is free), and times to run 10.
    All tests ran with default VTT?

    HWINFO shows you do have B3 rev chipset.

    ok I think I have fixed my event viewer and other problems. It was something silly and I missed it on gigabyte's site, I needed to install "Intel(R) Management Engine software" and reboot. once I got back into windows, I checked event viewer and the only warnings I got was some diagnostic application doing a check on something. I am not sure what that check is, but if I read correctly on intel forums, it may not be related to hardware error but a setting in windows. So I am going to keep tinkering to try and optimize windows 7 and my hardware.

    just glad it was something simple and not really hardware related. on the plus size, while testing all my HDD using the companies diagnostic tools, I found out my samsung F4 drive was having problems. it failed samsungs estool full scan and spit out many bad sectors. Glad I found out now before I lost everything :)

    one more question, what is better to use? onboard sound on this board or a soundblaster audigy 4?

    ok I spoke too soon. I am now getting WORSE performance then I was getting earlier, I checked smart status of my HDD and they are not doing so good. I am going to chalk this up to a bad motherboard as I fail to see how 3 HDD can all of a sudden now have errors when I hooked them up to a new system. I have already connected gigabyte support and now I wait till I can get an reply back from a tech support person or see if they just give me an rma.

    thanks for the help everyone.

    well since you are going for an rma why not just reinstall from the start like new,, and make sure all drivers ,intel(r) stuff is present,since you will have to do that with a new board anyway.
    Just use whatever wiped hdd u like.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    hoping to upgrade to http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/habicase.shtml

    i did a low level format and reinstall of windows 7 x64 on the western digital drive. it passed the low level format and extended scan using the western digital diagnostic dos program. But after i install windows 7 and get to the desktop, the performance is jerky windows and lag. Even the same after i install chipset drivers and other hardware drivers, so not sure what more to say. I am going to see what gigabyte has to say.
