a PLX 8747 to allow more than 2-way SLI, it also has a stronger VRM.

Yes this is an issue they are working on fixing. You can actually change one of the 3rd timings it starts with tWRPDC or somthing like that, it isn't tWRWR, its like tWRDPCRS or somthing like that. It has more affect on tWR than the tWR setting hahaha.
Don't worry a vey godo BIOS is coming to fix all these memory issues and bring some needed enhancements to keep the memory OC the best(they didn't tune the memory OC since launch lol, they "didn't feel the need" after comparing against competitor boards, but now competitors have tuned so GBT must as well. .

I was kinda keen to get my hdd in this arvo and start copying my files accross so I didn't waste too much time on it!
If not it looks like I'm getting a new motherboard soon lol.
I was looking at the 350D case in store today for an awfully long time so I'd say an m-atx board is in my near future!
That or something that can do 3 way sli if I stay with atx... decisions, decisions!
So odd that those PSUs don't work, you can try shove tiny pieces of tin foiil into the slots lol, it might also be a tolerance issue or an issue with OC ignition since it was very hard to implement, some PSUs might not like it. Why not get a UD4H or something?

When you set timings for RAM to manual (not advanced manual)
You change DIMM A timings, and when you go to DIMM B, all is greyed out, but the timings are stucked and don't reflect the DIMM A timings.
No, with manual mode only changing channel A timings will also change channel B timings, but fully manual mode wont change channel B timings when channel A timings have changed, you have to change both sets(double the work) just use manual mode.

where does it differ from cpuz??????
Yea just use memtweakit, GTL isn't very smart with the memory timings, are you also using at the latest GTL?

And the G35 is so I can have sounded normally its not there.
RIght click realtek audio and select it as the default device and plug your speaker into it.

We have tried everything, different RAM, re-seating the CPU, nothing seems to work whatsoever
Any ideas on how to get the board to boot, seems both of us are having the same issue, at different ends of the UK
both using i7 4770k's with Enermax 1200w PSU's
It could be bad board batch to the UK, can you try this with the board please.
FIrst check to see if OC ignition works, then try powering on.
If that doesn't work, turn off oc ignition.
Press CBAT button on the lower part of the board, this will drain every cap on the board of power and you will need to unplug and re-plug in your PSU to even start the system.
You want to put 1 stik of modern memory, somthing with XMP 1.3 in the orange slot nearest the CPU socket. If you still hang on code 15, then please hit the mem safe button, and then try to boot.
Report back after that.
if you are able to boot into the BIOS do this:
Please flash to the F5 BIOS(or reflash to F5 if already on it)
#1 let the system auto shutdown after this, however DO NOT allow it to power on, flip the PSU switch to off position once it shuts down and before it restarts.
#2 take out the battery
#3 clear the CMOS(don't press CBAT)
#4 put the battery back in
#5 turn back on and allow the system to naturally start up and ask you to load optimized defaults, do it and allow the system to boot.
Also make sure to try the system with the board outside the case.
15 is caused by a few things #1 CPU contact not good with the pins, you might want to try to just hold down the cooler by hand and see what happens, b/c the tightening might be un even.
#2 a short
#3 memory wont do it
But you also might want to let it keep doing its 15 thing, and over and over clear the CMOS.
I have had some boards just hang on 15 but I cleared the CMOS a few times and it worked, seems like something odd with the first time booting up certain boards.Edited by Sin0822 - 7/21/13 at 2:01pm
