I put old RAM back and it started working - afterwards I 'wiggled' the new RAM and it started working after awhile and has been ok since.

Tried some RAM that is on the QVL, still no go. Immediately goes to 76.

Wondering if the Ram slots are bad. I am so frustrated.

I've had this problem....turns out i had bent a couple of pins on the mobo under the cpu....i carefully straighten them and it fixed the problems.......maybe check them mate......

So, turns out I failed. I took everything out of the case, and it boots perfectly fine. I haven't built a rig in over 6 months, so I completely forgot all about that simple troubleshooting step.

Problem is, anytime I put ANYTHING back in the case, no Bueno. So, I am wondering if something is up with the case.....

That's good though. At least you figured it was working after all.

When you put it back in the case, connect only your disk drive and video card. Don't connect any of the case headers to your board. Use the onboard power/reset buttons instead. If this boots fine, then connect them and see if that works.

Edit: Also verify that you're using enough motherboard standoffs.

And... after hours of testing... figured out I was plugging a fan into a header...that was not for a fan.

Ugh... so nice to be back to building rigs and troubleshooting again.

Glad you got sorted, keep in mind you can use MemOK button on the mobo if memory doesn't play nice first boot. It gets it stable then you can get everything setup correctly, and sometimes it does a decent overclock!

I am getting my P8Z77-V tomorrow, do I need to USB BIOS Flash to 1606 before POST?

Already downloaded all the drivers except RST.

My SSD came from an old system running on an ASRock Z77 motherboard, do I need to reformat it for it to work with the ASUS mobo?

Nope, it'll either come with it and if it doesn't then just flash to it afterwards.

Regarding the SSD, might be a good time to do a secure erase but no I don't think you need to. I moved from Z68 to Z77 without doing anything, of course you may retain some of the old drivers etc there that are now not needed anymore - most you can remove manually no problems.

I will check the Bios that came with it, chances are it have 1504 or an earlier version. I removed most of the drivers I originally installed so that they won't cause hiccups in the initial boot(stuff like Asmedia Sata, USB, internet, iGPU driver etc, only thing I kept is the GPU driver).

Curious if anyone has seen a changelog? Fan XPert 2 is the only thing I am really interested in, wonder what is new in .18 versus .15. Everything lists Windows 8 support now as well, I'm guessing that's the only real change?
