Thanks for the several suggestions re the not-so-Marvellous dark blue thingies. I'll try the optical drive suggestion, that makes a lot of sense and I can set up my other two SSD and two 2 TB HDD to the available four light blue SATA 2 ports.

I've also swapped out my G Skill 16GB Ripjaws X mem (4x4GB) for two 8GB sticks that Crucial guarantees are compatible with the Pro/Gen 3 board...the only 8 GB sticks they recommend. Maybe that'll help too, I'm at wits end trying to figure out these random BSODs.

Thanks again for the thoughts, very helpful.

well personaly i don't think it's nothing to do with updating the bios,1101 will do nothing.

might be wrong but worth checking.have you checked the audio settings in the bios?

According to the P8Z68-V Pro manual, the Marvell ports are for data drives only. (pg 2-23).

I assume this is aimed at me? Everything was fined until I updated to 0902. Plus an entire thread of people with the same issue can't all be wrong. Right?

I don't have a budget and I don't want to build a water cooling loop, but I need something that doesn't cover any of the RAM slots. So far all I can find to fit my needs is a Corsair H100 or Thermalright Archon Rev. A.
Anyone else have ideas? Can anyone confirm the Archon will fit the P8Z68-V without covering any RAM slots?
Thanks! Will rep anyone that can help me at all!

I just installed the 4x4GB DDR3-1600 G.Skill Ripjaws X ram. Hooked everything back up and... no POST. Great.

So I yanked the sticks in slots 0 and 2, connected power and it booted up into BIOS. I set the XMP profile and booted into windows just to make sure it would. Shut down and installed the other 2 sticks to bring it up to 16GB... powered up and POSTed normally. Weird how these electronic devices play with us at times.

Regarding the space issue, the G.Skill HS is a bit taller than the one on the AData it replaced. I moved the intake fan up about 1/4-3/8 inch just to make sure the fan and the ram weren't touching. I didn't think it would help that stick of ram to be subject to any continuous vibration. No issues.

Any suggestions?.

You can downgrade the BIOS if you think that's the cause or try 1101 like you mentioned.

The downgrade method worked for me and others commenting there.

Did downgrading fix your issues? If so then what version did you downgrade to?

Moving to 1155 over Christmas, picked up a P8Z68-V for my 2500K. Moving up from an EP45-UD3P and a Q8400, so Im hoping Im going to enjoy this upgrade.

450

Is there anything i should know before i start overclocking over christmas? BIOS updates, bugs etc.
