I played through the Witcher 2 and only had it once in my entire playthrough, but when I played the original Deus Ex it would happen a lot. The most recent time it happened I was just playing music with Foobar. I've never had it happen during a stress test.

I'm sure it's not bad components, because I "upgraded" from the Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 to the Gene-Z, and the Gigabyte board was rock solid with the same components. It's likely not overclocking related since it happens more on the desktop or in Deus Ex 1 than in modern games.

Any ideas? I have the 2.65 Realtek drivers and have not installed the X-Fi software.

Edit: the Anandtech post says it's related to dual-channel, and when he took one DIMM out it worked fine. I don't really consider that a "solution". I have G.Skill Sniper 2x4GB 1.5V
No such problem here. But i am using the w7 64bit sp1 drivers for the realtek, so did not install anything additional. Maybe you can try that.

For S&G's, run the board with a memory stick in the far memory slot, should be DIMM4. Just see if this is solves the issue. However, what I suspect is it's a driver issue, did you reinstall W7 when you switched from the Gigabyte to the Asus board? If not, did you have any of the Gigabyte utilities installed previously that could be causing the issue? Do you have the Asus AISuiteII installed? If so, try seeing if shutting down that program solves the issue. I am having weird issue on mine, but it's because of old Nvidia drivers being installed on the board, regardless of how many times I try to get them off, they are stuck in the registry and my only solution will be a fresh install. It sucks, but it happens and has nothing to do with the board, at least in my case. By the way, if the problem goes away when you put only one stick in the far red slot, it's probably a component driver conflict.

Welcome aboard crUk ... and yes check the 1st Post for some Useful info ...

and on that note ... GUYS, as some of you may have seen, Kvjavs has turned over this group to Me, but I feel like it's OUR group ... so WHAT DO YOU WANT on/in the FIRST POST ?

I've been making a few changes, and have a few more things planned, but I'm open to and welcome any suggestions from you guys, so PM me or post it in the thread, I'd like to make the 1st post a great ONE STOP SHOP for finding the info you need to get up and running with this board and for HELP when you need it ...

A few things I could use some help with off the bat ...

- "Available for Purchase @ these Locations" , where did you guys BUY your board ? lets make it easy to find the best Online /or Brick & Mortar places for people to find a deal on the GENE. Especially looking for feedback from you guys outside the USA, where can I find it in the UK, in Asia, in Australia, in South America, etc.

- "Other Useful Posts", I've added several more ... but anything else I missed ?

- "Reviews", "Photo Gallery", "Downloads" ... have all been updated, but if you have something to add let me know

- The "OWNERS LIST" ... I plan on revamping this ... either using Google Docs, or at least an HTML Table within the post, so that I can ADD in your SYSTEM INFO alongside your NAME, and links to your pics. I think this will make it easier for people to Find a system or Component in a build they're thinking about, they can just look down the list and see "Oh, ok ... so and so has the CPU cooler and/or GPU card I was looking at adding to my build, let me go see how that looks" or "hey That's the case I was looking at, great now I know it all fits inside there and I can buy one too".

IF you guys can think of other things that would help out our MAX4GENEZ68 community then just let me know about it. Thanks again for being apart of it !

Hello again forum friends.

Well after my trouble getting my system up and running it's been super for a week now.
Playing WOT and surfing, photoshoping etc.

So I thought it was time to raise my mem to 1600(from 1333) Corsair XMS3 1600 sticks
Enter bios , enter mem freq. raise to 1600. boot, and it restarts at the biso screen several times.
Enter bios , and raise the volt to 1,650. , Still the same. boots and starts in a loop.
Enter bios again, update to 0604 (from 0403) and now I get past the bios screen, but after 'loading windows' I get the blu screen.

So there I am. After many many restarts and cmos , remove one mem stick, I suddenly
get the W recovery option, and is up and running again. Will shut down now and plug in the second stick again to se. All back at 1333 and 0403 bios.

What am I doing wrong here. Seems like if I push one button, ore try to change just one thing in bios, I get blu screen ore no boot. Don't know if the disk is bad. it never made a hick the past year ( it's 1 year + ore so old)
Error code on MB is AE: Legacy boot event.
Thanks for looking.

I have had that happen to me lately, unplug a GPU and the system gets weird on me, but for me I am pretty sure it's either my cpu socket, waiting on my RMA to get here or it's my W7 build. Hopefully I will have time this weekend to finish my system.
