PS: if your running 450x8 (thinkin the 9 is a typo) make sure you link/sync your memory, it will run it at 900 which should be a breez for the crucial's
Yup I flashed it to SZ17 as soon as I got the new board, I think it has something to do with the FSB, when I set it to 1.4 it won't post upon reset I have to do the power off/on.. auto sometimes makes it post.
(it is the FSB, I just put it on auto and took it off a bunch of times and that's whats causing it.. weird, setting fsb to 1.45 allows it post, I should have tried that before making my post, sorry)
Nope the 9 isn't a typo, that's what I'm running it at linked/synced at the moment, didn't wanna push my ram too much on my first day of 100% stable occt/prime/gaming.
I just changed to 450x8 synced with fsb 1.45, and am going to take my dog for her walk, so we will see how it goes by the time I get back.
Thanks for your time.
