A couple of things:
1. Plese "join" me to the club., as I have two ASRock Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 MBs.
2. Something to ponder....
I have two systems that I built: one for me and one for my wife. Both have ASRock Fatal1ty Professional Gen3 MBs, Intel 2600K processors, EVGA Superclocked GeForce 560ti graphics adaptors, Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9) memory, and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM installed. The differences are the cases, power supplies, wireless keyboards and mouse, hard drives, and DVD reader/writer.
Here's where things get interesting. Both sytems started getting BSOD with memory indicated as the problem. So, I test the memory one by one, using MEMTEST86+. On both systems, the memory that was in slot 3 (with 0 being ther first slot) was bad. So, I loaded 0 and 2 in my wife's system,meaning her system is running wtih 8GB. MEMTEST86+ shows no problem. I tested her good and bad memory sticks in my system, and MEMTEST86+ confirmed one was good and one was bad. So, I load her good stick in my system along with my three goods ones. MEMTEST86+ shows no problems, and my system is running with 16GB.
Now, I didn't check the memory, when I built the systems. So, I don't know, if the memory was bad from the beginning or it went bad for some unknown reason. And, if it was good from the beginning, was the unknown reason SLOT3 on the MBs. One has to admit it's kinda coincidental that it's the same slot on both boards.
Anyway, I've ordered 8GB for her system, but I'm not putting them in until I've run my system, for two or so weeks without another memory issue.
Just thought y'all might be intrested. I'll post back on the results.. good or bad.
Thanks for listening,
BTW, I too have issues with USB keyboards not being recognized by the BIOS. I've been able to work through it, but it's been painful.
