But it clearly doesn't work with DVI...
I think I'm gonna have a chat with ASUS about this.. see what they have to say...
Still hoping it's a simple setting issue though....rolleyes.gif

Hey guys I know I have been saying just replace your motherboards if your having the PCIe problem or video output issues in general. I had this problem as well i spent about 3 days trying to figure it out mad.gif , so i gave up and exchanged my mobo for a fresh one......that solved the problem thumb.gif . Anyways here are some screen shots of how i have my BIOS setup. I forgot to to mention this but as a last resort try setting your PCIe configuration to "GEN2". From what i have heard from some friends it has helped. But was in no way a permanent fix. IMO it sounds the 4 of us just got unlucky....i know it sucks! but who knows for sure at this point. I hope these help. thumb.gif





headscratch.gif If anyone would like some more screenshots of my BIOS just let me know I'd be happy to help you all figure out this issue (im pretty sure its due to defective mobos) ! headscratch.gif

I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out why my new 3770K system with an Asus Z77 Sabertooth motherboard was unstable, even when not overclocking.

I finally found out that it had to do with the RAM I was using:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231568

I had 32GB in there, but also tried two sticks at a time and each set failed, so I'm inclined to think the RAM itself is not bad.

When I switched to a lower density G.SKILL RAM, the problem immediately went away!

Is this board known to be this finicky with certain types of RAM? Could I have a bad board? Has anyone else had a problem like this?

I am not really sure I've never had a problem with bad RAM in it (or RAM the mobo did not like). I am and running 2x 8gb sticks of corsair vengeance (16gb) in addition to cheap cheap crap Microcenter brand ram at 4gb each (8gb). I believe the Microcenter RAM runs at 1333mhz and the Corsair runs at 1600mhz. I am actually shocked all the auto RAM clocking stuff on motherboard had even auto-clocked all 4 dims to run as dual channel. I have also ran it with just my budget RAM and it did great.

Anyways my answer would be no. or at least in my experience. However I am also sure there are some users out there that would have had similar experiences to you. Make sure you putting the RAM in the right slots....im sure you are though.

Check my posts, I was having problems with g.skill ram and it was solved after updating the bios with the 1403 version.

Have you tried talking to G.Skill about this. I have been reading other forums about gskill kits that were actually supported by the board and on the QVL and still caused problems. One in particular was a conversation between gskill rep and a user. solved by rma the board. That is unfortunately the kind of crap early users of new tech go through. I don't see that gskill you tried on the QVL either. good to know you solved it by switching to another module. Is that on the QVL in the Manual? Hopefully more 8gb modules will be supported through bios updates

I will tonight. Sorry, I didn't see this until today. They are processor parity errors.

Did you try just putting in 1 stick and then configuring the bios to match the ram requirements? Speed, timings, voltage. Then saving and turning off and then putting all the sticks in? Do they pass on memtest86+ either?

Thanks, but I was already using 1403.

I'm RMA'ing the 32GB of G.SKILL RAM back to Newegg. The lower density G.SKILL RAM seems to be working fine but I'm still testing. All my slots are loaded with 4GB sticks. I use to have them all loaded with 8GB sticks. I really didn't need all that RAM anyway. smile.gif

I didn't talk to G.SKILL about it. I'm just going to return it.

The RAM I am using now is F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL. I see something very similar on the QVL, but not the exact model. The last two letters are different.

I do hope it's not because my board is defective though, but I suppose there is no easy way to tell exactly what is at fault.

This actually did the trick for me and my 4*4 ripjaws Z.
Had to push mem ok button three to four times before I can boot up, but after booting up and setting the xmp profile on the one stick, all four worked like a charm afterwards.

I guess what went wrong was that I already had set an xmp profile for the vengeance ram I replaced with the ripjaws and forgot to set bios defaults before the change.
