ASUS Maximus Extreme Issues -- Not even sure where to being!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Here's my setup:

ASUS Maximus Exteme Moterhboard
G.Skill DDR3-1600 - 2x2GB RAM
Intel QX9650 CPU
8800GTX - Graphics Card
Thermal Take 1200W - PSU
1x Raptor
5x Seagates 750's


So I've been having some weird issues....mostly with RAM (or maybe the motherboard it-self)

Basicly, when running the RAM as Dual-Channel weird things happen. It will regsiter as 1333 (which I want), then after a reboot it registers at 1066 or 1601 sometimes. It varies. Anyway, when its at 1066 or 1601 I get blue screens in windows.

So I am trying to set it at 1333 ALWAYS since my FSB on my CPU is 1333. I don't want to bother with overclocking the CPU (don't ask) I just want the damn RAM to work.

I've been trying for about 40+ hours with all different combination in the BIOS with no luck. Single Channel seems to work liek 95% of the time and a memtest shows the RAM is fine, not 1 error.

I also made a video to show what happens when I make changes. For instance, if I make ANY changes to DRAM and then save the changes, the motherboard powers off, and then it seems like it attempts to power back on but can't quite get there. I then have to kill the power to the PSU, wait 5 seconds, turn the PSU back on and then power up. It's quite interesting and really, really aggrivating.

Check out the video and tell me what you think:

Also, notice the high pitch sound when it turns off.....no idea what that is but a few people seem to think its just the PSU...others think its the PSU protecting it-self from something.

I'm so lost at this point that I don't know what to do. Maybe it's a bad motherboard?

Any help is much appreciated. Feel free to e-mail me also, amd599@gmail.com
