Yeah, I hear ya there. I just dropped $200 on a 8x4 gb kit for a different build, it would have been cheaper for me to buy 2x 4x4gb kits of the same RAM, but I wanted a matched set.

I don't, I just put it together yesterday, then swapped GPUs around last night, I could snap a few, but its nothing impressive. No fancy yellow liquid cooling, or sleeved cables.

I'm using this Sparkle GTX 580 that came with an Accelero cooler on it. Its just a reference card, but with that Accelero on there, my temps are pretty nice, 53C while folding on the GTX 580.

Likely that there are oversights on settings and methodoligy/steps - but this is ok, you learn from making a mistake and taking actions to correct it. If people weren't having issues they wouldn't be learning how to troubleshoot them. Trust me I have had years of frustration and still do, but I know much more about why I am having issues.

They don't have a "overclocker's department" while many of the tech support may be familiar with overclocking or do it themselves thats another thing. And A0 as I stated earlier is an issue with storage devices - easily seen in the American Megatrends, Inc.
Aptio 4.x Status Codes manual:
0xA0 IDE initialization is started. Its not a state secret lol, I do recommend that you and everyone else download this and put it on a mobile device with a pdf reader wink.gif

Again - please disconnect all storage devices (read: even flash drives or memory cards in reader that I saw on your bios wink.gif ) and then boot the computer > also look in bios for sysstem devices and look at what your drive configuration is setup in, as CL3P20 said... if this is in IDE mode I strongly suggest you reinstall windows, after backing up your info and switching to AHCI mode.

they need to troubleshoot with the above strategy as I would guess you know too.

if you did install the drive in IDE mode you will definitely be lacking performance compared to AHCI.

You know that the obsessing always helps you do better since you are pouring over every detail tongue.gifwink.gif . Whats worse with me is I obsess and am pessimistic about my work, so everything I do and what people see I am never satisfied. At least it is better that when I am through and someone sees it they really like it - but I am still picky about it after that fact. I have spent a few hundred hours testing this board, and even more using it since I got it. I have obsessed over testing to the point of literally making myself sick, by wearing myself out. LOL :/
