It didn't work the first time so I had to reformat the USB stick as FAT32 to get it to work. The USB port you are supposed to use is marked on the little back-panel that comes with the mobo.

The motherboard wants to assume that my RAM is 1333 when it's actually 1600Mhz so I'm still trying to sort out how to fix that.

You just need to load the XMP profile in the BIOS thats it

Somewhere in your BIOS you have something called XMP

Just load that and the RAM will auto set it self to whatever speed it has

Here might help

OK I believe I have XMP on now -- I had to change the BIOS from EZ mode to advanced mode and there was an "AI Overclock Tuner" option on the "AI Tweaker" screen which I had to set from Auto to XMP. This changed a variety of memory settings including DRAM speed, voltage, etc. The machine booted fine. I'd like to test it though...CPUZ doesn't report any memory detail (see image)

I'm also having a problem trying to wake the machine from sleep mode. The machine boots up from full shutdown just fine, but if it goes to sleep (either via power savings timeout or me putting it to sleep manually) then it cannot seem to wake up. I'll hit the ctrl key on the keyboard and the fans and LEDs will all come on, but the monitor never comes back to life and then after about 5-10 seconds, the fans and LEDs will shut off for a couple of seconds and then come back on for 5-10, shutdown for a couple, etc. The only way I can get it to stop so far is to hold down the power button longer than 4 seconds to force a shutdown and then reboot -- at which point it seems to boot up just fine. The problem seems to be described here on the ASUS forums. Any thoughts on how to avoid this without forcing the machine to stay up and running all the time? Or any thoughts on what the problem might be?

CPU-Z has never been able to show you the right RAM speed so thats nothing new

Then dont use sleep mode turn your PC off if you are not using it
