Do you have the BIOS for the correct board? (i.e. 990X, not 970)
I have 4 DIMMs at 1600 6-8-6-20 with no issues.

It is the correct BIOS - the F5 version. I'll update to F6 and see if the problem persists.

The usb drive you are using to do Q-flash with was it formatted to FAT 32 before you unzipped the F5 bios to it? Because if you didn't Q-flash wont read the file. Also go into Integrated Peripherals in bios and make sure that USB Storage Function is Enabled.

Also on a side note. I went and picked up some MX-4 from NCIX priced matched for 7.99!!! So I'll be removing the vrm heat sink along with the north bridge again and using MX-4. So I'll be adding some pictures tomorrow for anyone that wants to also change, from the stock thermal tape to aftermarket thermal paste.

Pals...
It's the exact board bios. I have downloaded 3 times. From gigabyte site... And have tried with 2 different pendrives as well as formatted the drives in both fat32 as well as fat16. Still q-flash doesn't do anything. Just same invalid bios image.
Help needed.
P.s. Can any1 post their own working bios save so that I can try that on my board. 990xa-ud3. Any version will do...

If you are using a SSD than you would want to set your sata to ahci, but if you are just using a standard HD the IDE is fine.

Here is my CMOS default settings F5 bios. Unzip it, then save it to a usb drive, and when you enter bios hit F12 and load from the HDD the file name is Default.

I personally think you will be able to fit it in, However I don't have that cooler so I do not know how low the fan sits. If it is the same height as the silver arrow then you will be fine.
