Uh oh, that wasn't so good.

Fourth test: Reset the CMOS. Powered off, unplugged, and let any power drain for about five minutes. Moved the CMOS jumper from the 1-2 position to the 2-3 position for ten seconds. Put the jumper back to the 1-2 position. Plugged the power back in and started it up.

Result: not good. I can't get past POST now. The motherboard LEDs indicate a DRAM problem. This actually happened to me last Tuesday when I put all these components together. I'm not even sure how I fixed it, I had chalked it up to not having one of the DIMMs seated properly. But I didn't touch the DIMMs this time. Now I've got to figure out how to fix that again so I can even get past POST.

Good news!

I was able to correct the DRAM POST issue by using the MemOK button on the z77 motherboard. I pressed that until it was flashing, let the system reboot and it got past POST. I went into the BIOS and it looks like it downclocked my 1600MHz DRAM to 1333MHz. I've been told that since I have a Sandy Bridge processor this is normal, because 1600MHz is considered overclocked for a Sandy Bridge proc. Still, I wonder if I should be concerned that my computer will not boot if the RAM is at its manufactured speed.

Also good news is that once I fixed the DRAM issue, now when I shut down, the fans and case LEDs shut off properly. So Navit gets props for that suggestion; it appears to have worked for me.

For some reason the Intel LAN driver or the built in card is causing me to have slow upload speeds, does anyone else have this issue ?

Do you guys use the Auto Cpu OCing on this board? or do it manually?

Has anyone notice any odd reading for the Vcore (Back) when using ASUS Suite 2.

More to the point has anyone ever heard of Vcore (Back).

Temp for this sensor is saying 122.0 degrees centigrade.

The actual Vcore temp is fine at 30 odd degrees

Vcore back is a temp sensor located near the chokes, mine reads 30c

Cheers,

So the question is should I be concerned with the odd temp knowing the actual Vcore temp is fine.

And is that sensor viewable in Bios so I can at least confirm the temp reading.

The sensor could be giving you a false reading, here is a picture with the location of that sensor, not sure if you can read it in the bios?

Also do you have a temperature gun to check the temp in that location to see if it is showing the right temp?
