That's why I suggested you post in the GA970A owners club.
I did that, I believe they came here to join in. Just for a note, I've probably spent over 200 hours on this, changing voltages, frequency, timings, multipliers, nearly bricking the computer and everything in-between. I have as of yet to receive a new suggestion that has gotten me over the hump. I started with G.Skill's forums, and then migrated to here because I know that this is a great knowledgeable community.
The last suggestion was from amd-pcmarlow, and unfortunately the changes made my computer decide that it didn't feel like booting properly. Then I did a CMOS reset, reloaded default values, boot/reboot and make sure everything is working properly. So I am here now, again, where I'm at that the computer works, but not "properly" as the DRAM is not running to its stated speeds -- its rated 1866, but heck I'd take 1600, it'd make me feel better and justify my purchase over my Pareema 1333, aside from the memory size boost.
