Thanks for the quick reply!

When you're in that screen, does the voltage change along with the memory frequency, or would I have to change it (in case I lowered it to 1600)?

What I find odd, is that on the product page for that memory from GSkill, it says in bold red letters that this specific memory will work best with the i5 3570k. I am guessing they think it is totally acceptable to downclock this ram to work with the i5?

When the board reads the mem module it will see the default voltage and set it automatically. If you want to try it set you frequency to 2400 and note the voltage. If the board won't post ..then start slowly raising the volts ..It's up to you how much you want to play with it to get stable. Another poster has recently got.his 2400 kit stable ..he just posted recently about it.

You don't need to lower your volts.

Nope sorry, was a one time thing. I got my from Memoryexpress in Edmonton. It was originally listed for $249.99, but this one was an RMA Recertified listed for $199.99, then they had a 30% off clearance item sale. That is why I got it so cheap. I was lucky I got it to. i showed up 10 minutes before hey opened and they had 2 calls on it before they had opened.

Anyway, big thanks to Hanoverfist for teaching me this far tongue.gif
What should I do now to OC the RAM? wink.gif

Something has gone wrong with my bios update last night. I had the system up and running with bios 1015 and try to upgrade to the newest 1504. I am using the flashback and usb on the back of the motherboard to do this. It seems liked it worked because I got a new logo on boot up but the delete key did not work then it came to screen that said to click F1 but that also did not work. The boot led light was on on the motherboard. So was thinking it was something wrong with the newest bios that I tried to do the flashback again with the one below 1504 which I think is 1403. After that flash it does not power past the cpu led light now. I am going to post a clip that shows what it was doing where it powers up red light turns off powers up then turns off. This whole system was working just fine on 1015 besides it was taking such a longtime to boot past the bios screens.

Just does not seem right and not sure what to do next. I have cleared the CMOS and removed all USB and extra drives on the motherboard. Did I mess this up by doing the flashback method to go back to a lower version? Any ideas would be great since I am at work and have no computer at home working right now until wife comes home tonight. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbPgM6g9YvE&list=UU4hVOWX97LrI2UsU_sW5xVw&index=1&feature=plcp
Thanks for any ideas!

It goes without saying that something has definitely gone wrong for you. At this point when clearing the cmos has no affect with just using the jumper it is suggested that you also remove the battery and repeat the process.. this is a bummer because you have to remove the armor. Page 2-14 of the manual.. I cant be positive on the affects of flashing back to a previous version on this board.. but have done it successfully on my other asus board just fine..

Here is some more reading on your issue http://support.asus.com/Troubleshooting/detail.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=1&m=SABERTOOTH%20Z77&s=39&hashedid=wMYmwl5uuG2ml3jJ&os=&no=1722

Thanks, I am going to try to remove the battery next then. Just strange that it was working not getting this CPU led error. Something that I thought was going to be quick in simple never ends up that way!

After flashing the latest bios 1504, I can't seem to get my X.M.P settings to stick.
I was successfully running on 4100 mhz for my CPU and 1600 mhz for my Ram using X.M.P but now my ram is running at 1300mhz and my CPU at 3700mhz.
Is anybody else experiencing this after updating to the latest Bios?
Thanks.
