If you're using a SSD as boot and RAID array for storage drives, yes, it will need to be in AHCI mode to boot.

That's why I say there's most likely a bent CPU socket pin. It happens all the time and people don't realize it.

This happens when people try to install a cpu when the tower/case is standing upright. Instead of laying it on the side and doing it correctly. As you can't hold the chip in place good while trying to lock it in place. Laying it on the side is the easiest way, but we all get in a hurry sometimes.

Also here's another thing I mentioned when I take out the memory ram from the 2nd blue slot it shows still 4GB memory in bio's which is right as i took out 2GB But when i take that 2GB ram that I took out from the 2nd slot and swap it with the 1st or 3rd memory slot ram it then only shows 2GB so am thinking maaaaaaaaybe it's the ram after all ???

Try replacing the 990x with the 950 and see if you have memory problem or not. (hope you didn't sell it )

I still have it but I should have checked after I flashed my bio's to see if it was showing 4GB with the i7 950 if it did in that case it would have been due to flashing/updating the bio's

Hi guys please help. Ok so here’s the thing I have 6 memory slots 3 black and 3 blue and according to the Asus motherboard manual they are like this also this is the order they are in on my motherboard

Black Slot (A2) , Blue Slot (A1) , Black Slot (B2) , Blue Slot (B1) , Black Slot (C2) , Blue Slot (C1)

I have 6GB DDR3 worth of memory ram 3x 2GB and the Asus motherboard manual says for 6GB memory you need to put the memory in the following slots A1, B1, C1 which all are blue slots and that’s the way I have had it for over a year without a problem. But here’s the weird thing as I told you my PC was shutting of twice and on the 3rd try it would go into Windows this started happening after I installed my new CPU i7 990x also in bio’s and windows the memory is showing as only 4GB. So I played around with the slots and guess what I know have
one memory ram in A1 (Blue Slot) one in C2 (Black Slot) and one in C1 (Blue Slot) and guess what again the bio’s is showing 6GB know also in Windows showing 6GB and my PC is NOT shutting off twice and goes into windows 1st time??? this is the only way it works I tried Putting all 3 memory rams together like A2,A1,B2 but no luck PC shuts of twice and shows 4GB memory? So guys what can be the problem? in my Asus motherboard manual it says for a 6GB memory I need to have them all in the blue slots but when I do that I see only 4GB memory plus PC shuts of twice In other words whenever the PC shuts off twice I always see 4GB even though 6GB is installed
Could something have happened to the memory channels? Or something like that? I no people said it might be bent pin on the motherboard socket or cpu itself I haven’t checked But the PC is not shutting off when the memory is in this order so maybe am thinking it’s the slots themselves
