    I'll let you guys know how I get on. Do you think I should risk flashing it again?

    HELP IS NEEDED...PLEASE!!!

    I HAVE RECENTLY BUILT A NEW PC AND I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH GIGABYTE EX58 EXTREME MOTHERBOARD (BIOS REV F2) DETECTING (3x 1024mb) x2 = 6GB TOTAL MEMORY TRIPLE CHANNEL OCZ DDR3 PC3-10666 1333hz.

    IF I INSERT THE BOTH TRIPLE CHANNEL DDR3 IN ALL 6 DIMMS THE SYSTEM WILL NOT BOOT TO WINDOWS VISTA 32BIT OR 64BIT.

    HOWEVER, IF USE ANY 1 SET OF TRIPLE CHANNEL DDR3 ON DIMMS 1,3, AND 5 THE SYSTEM WORK FINE...

    ANY SUGGESTION WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL.


    MY SYSTEM SPEC:

    INTEL CORE i7 920 CPU
    GIGABYTE EX58 EXTREME MOTHERBOARD
    2x OCZ PC3-10666 (1333mhz) DDR3 TRIPLE CHANNEL (6GB) (1GB DDR3 PER DIMMS)
    SAPPHIRE ATI HD3870 GDDR4

    3 RAPTOR X ON RAID0 STRIPE (128kb)
    THERMALTAKE AMOR+ FULL TOWER
    1 HD ROM

    I'm not positive but your problem with not being able to run your full 6 gigs might be power. If I were you I would try something along the size of 800+ watts. Remember more power wont hurt you, however not enough will cause a lot of weird problems, i.e. random failures when under load, certain things not powering up, or working correctly. If thats not the problem, then you might have bad DIMM slots on your board in the 2,4,6 positions, since you said you tried both sets of tri-channel. I have a horrible problem with my EX-58-Extreme, but mine is with no video output after it all worked flawlessly for 2 months, after a lot of forum searching just going to bite the bullet and buy a real MB brand, Asus.
