Actually, the only options I checked were the display of CPU #0 in the tray and GPU temperature. I've left everything else on default.
I forgot to mention it before that I had forgotten to put back one of my 2x4GB memory kits when I was running tests. When I put them back in to fill all 4 banks, the system works fine, but sleep mode stops working correctly on my Seagate drive. The sleep mode problem is currently the only issue my Western Digital has now that I know not to run any hardware monitoring programs other than HWInfo. I suppose I could stop using sleep mode, but I shouldn't have to. I was planning to use 8GB for a ram drive, but that will have to wait until Gigabyte can fix the compatibility issues; I can live with 8GB installed instead of 16GB. When I have time I may try my 2x2GB DDR3 1600 kit for a total of 12GB to see if the system has issues and I should also try running the modules at 1333MHz.
