Your ram needs to use either A1 A2 or B1 B2... Not sure if this would cause a BSOD but it prevents you from having dual channel.

Lets pretend I didn't say that....lol

The ram is running in dual channel.

I don't get a bsod, what happens when I press the power is it shows a static windows shutting down screen then posts twice before booting

Wow, thanks. So one dimm goes in the black slot, one in the blue? I would never have guessed that.

Ummm no.
You use A2 and B2 for 2 slots of RAM.

Wondering if someone can shut down their machine, and then start it (don't select restart in windows).

On my rig the first screen I see is the shut down screen when booting, does this happen to anyone else?

Also when shutting down it goes to the "windows shutting down" screen (as it should) but then the screen goes black and then it goes to the shut down screen again.

As I said, I could try it and throw everything together and check the BIOS, though I am not keen on taking it all apart again, then rebuilding it over again.

Wow, a ton of ways to know if it's B3 were posted right after mine.

Hi everyone. I'm a new P8Z68-V LE owner and am having a horrible time with my first-ever build (TDRs every 15 min, BSOD (109) every 1 or 2 hrs., Witcher 2 plays (well) for 25 min. and then freezes the system). I wanted to see if you guys have any pointers. This is my setup, which is pretty nice when it decides to run:
i5 2500k
Asus P8Z68-V LE
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti OC
Corsair HX650
Win 7 (64)
Corsair 8GB (2x4) DDR3 1600 - CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9
NZXT H2 enclosure, added the optional 140mm fan on top, and my CPU temps were great when I tried to OC a little (only to 3.7 or so at first).

First, the guy who drew the instructions for that Cooler Master needs a good kick in the pants. After I finally figured it out, I installed it while the mobo was still installed (I was using the stock intel fan because the EVO arrived a few days later). The installation thus required me to put a hell of a lot of pressure on the board when locking down the criss-cross holding mechanism, which itself seemed to put even more pressure on my poor CPU. Long story short, I have a feeling it shouldn't have been that hard, and that I may have crush my CPU in the process. There were problems before that date, but they've gotten much worse since.
Second, I had to move the RAM from the A1 B1 slots to A2 B2 to get the 120 fan on the RAM side of the heatsink, and I noticed that that Corsair RAM *isn't* on ASUS's compatibility list, on which all Corsair DDR3 1600 ram is set at 1.65v. Mine is 1.50v. Is that a pretty big deal, or a possible cause of the BSODs?
Third, it seems like half the internet agrees that my Gigabyte card is a complete disaster, but now I'm wondering if I'm at fault due to the RAM or something I did when I installed the cooler. I guess I'm just wondering how likely that might be. Anyway, thanks. Hopefully I'll get this thing working eventually.

I have the same board (Asus P8Z68-V-LE) and haven't had a problem. It's been working flawlessly. Anyway, I've also heard the the Gigabyte 560 is very buggy but it should NOT do some of the stuff your saying it does (just some)...lol...First, use A2-B2 for your RAM and that will give you dual channel and everything should work okay in that respect. If you think it's not working (because it's not on the list) then use the Mem OK, that's what it's there for.. On the other problems, did this start doing this from day 1? If so it could be a number of things (which we can then break down and find out the problem). Also, did you update your BIO's to the latest 0805 ??? This might solve some of the problems, then we can go from there.

Let's pretend you didn't say that, it's A2-B2...unless you have 4 sticks then it's all of them....lol...

Medication is great, but it sure does mess your head up...lol...(Don't worry about it, I make more dumb mistakes than I care to count....)

MaX.

Yes, but the guy doesn't want to build the computer just to find out, so that's not an option. We're trying to find a way he can find out before he builds (which would be a good idea so he doesn't have to build everything then rip it all down.)

What SSD drive are you using? Did you update the firmware on the SSD to the latest? Did you update the board's BIO's to the latest? Some SSD drives (when booting) hang the system for awhile (although they won't give the different screens you are getting), but what you're describing sounds a bit different.

I'm using a crucial M4 ssd.

WHat's weird is even when shutting down it goes to the shutting down splash screen as normal with the round timer, then the screen goes black then it goes to the shutting down screen again but this time the round timer thing is static.

Then as soon as I boot up the first screen it goes to is the windows shutting down screen before proceeding to boot.

It's driving me insane
