Jenkins, here is the "How to Flash" guide from Gigabyte. I hope this is helpful: http://tw.giga-byte.com/Support/Moth...flashBIOS.aspx.

One good way to know if the memory is good or not is to find someone with another board that supports DDR2. I know I already recommended this but it would be a good way to troubleshoot. Perhaps the local PC shop could test it for you? I would only do this if your completely out of ideas. If the memory doesn't POST in another machine then it's probably safe to say that it needs to be RMA'ed and replaced.

Good luck

What's with the temp reading on TMPIN3, using CPUID Hardware Monitor?
See attached screen shot.
79C is SMOKING HOT...!
Is that the video portion of the 780G?

Thanks, Bruce.

I just bought one last night at Frys. Going to install it tomorrow and start tweaking.
Hopefully, flashing the BIOS isn't as difficult as it's made out to be.

Ferdinand, it may be your chipset. If you have time, try download Everest and run it. Tell us what temperatures are reported in that application. Does the temperature go up during stressing (stability testing)?

To view temperature readings in Everest, go to Computer -> Sensor.

Good luck

Everest just says "Motherboard" = 32C, which matches up with TMPIN0.

FerdinandII, those idle temps on your processor look a bit off. Is this a Brisbane chip?

Good luck

Yup,

It's a 5400 BE, overcloced from 2.8 to 3.2GHz.

FerdinandII, that would explain for the odd temperature readings on the two cores. For some odd reason some motherboard chipsets have difficulties reading the temperatures that are recorded by the Brisbane core. This is actually pretty common issue with this specific core. As long as you have proper airflow in your case and your HS cooler is sufficient then you should be ok. Room ambient temps also make a big difference (obviously).

Good luck
