    Looks about normal, if you think it's low compared to what you see others post it's probably because your CPU is at stock and others are overclocked

    Thnx for the reply, I tried over clocking the pc a bit after changing the ram to corsair dominator 1600 and I got better results but there is something very wrong with my pc and that is loading time fo everything, be it windows or game or even outside windows when trying to load the installation screen for exemple of windows 7 x64 is just way slow even compared to my previous system and that was a joke compared to this one.. Am totally lost for what could be the reason, any ideas ? Or should I make a new post ? Apreciate your reply

    Do you mean it's slow to start windows? If so that is normal possibly, Gigabyte boards are slow to go through the bootup process. How long does it take from pushing the power button until you get to the windows desktop?

    i was talking about the loading time for almost everything, i just updated to SSD and the load time is awesome for whatever is installed on it, but i still cant get over the fact that my previous system "for example" world of Warcraft loading time was much faster than this system, but problems keep coming one after another :P i did 2 updated today, the corsair H50 + the SSD,.. now before even plunging the SSD i had some strange problem is the PC doesn't boot fully, it barely reached the point where it is will start loading windows and then it restarts, i was thinking its the h50 not connected properly, but it is after i have checked the temps, however i noticed it had something to do with the ram, is i put it to 1600 "dominator 1600" in the bios setting, be it xmp or manually, the system keep rebooting at the same point, however if i just leave it to auto "1066" then the system just boot fine without any problem, i tried some tests while inside to check if it has anything to do with the heat but the cores temp doesn't go beyond 51 on rare occasions even with 100% load, so here is the question, what am i missing ? could it be my 750watts power supply is not enough ? i mean comon does the h50 need all that power ? because technically i removed 1 back fan and cpu fan and plugged the h50 fan instead of it and same for the cpu.. also i noticed if i plug only 1 ram, then it works fine even with 1600mhz.. any help ?

    Sounds like you need help with your BIOS settings, please grab a template from my signature and give me the full settings you are trying to use and I will advise back.

    Also please link to your specific memory kit.

    hi thnx for your will to help

    below i will post the setting on my bios, however before that i tried some tests and apparently, i noticed that the rams will work properly on specific slots

    | | | | | |
    1 2 3 4 5 6

    if am not mistaking this the rams sorting on my motherboard, the white slots are 2-4-6 everything works fine when i plug the rams on 2-5-6

    but if i plug the ram that goes on 5 in 4 instead then i get the restart again, just at the exact same moment when the windows loading logo is just about to appear

    and this is my setting, everything except the C.I.A.2, i couldn't find that anywhere, nor do i have any idea what it is

    however after windows boots in, this is the setting that shows on CPU-Z is as per the screenshot, the rest of the slots are empty

    thanks in advance again

    EDIT: please note that the Channel B settings are based on when the ram is plugged on the slot number 3 "white", also i added some clarifications and CPU-Z results
