So your memory isn't running at its rated speed? If so, I believe you will have to go into your BIOS and manually set the timings and the command rate in order to get it to work properly. According to what I've read DDR3 1600 is overclocked memory. But 1333 is native, so if you do put your 1600mhz memory kit in, you might need to overclock your CPU to run at its rated speed.
Let me know if you need images or guides.

I haven't installed anything yet, except for my PSU in my case. I will need pictures and guides, but I must put together my computer and download CPU-Z right?

I have a new question:
Will both my XFX 5770s fit with the sound card given?

It should fit for crossfire. I assume you will leave that soundcard on the first pci ex1 slot and not the one in between the two PCI ex16 2.0 slots. Other than that it should fit, otherwise it would be ASUS fault for making this board if it can't fit two cards properly. They're the one who design it.


Good luck!

Honestly, I thought about getting this motherboard as an upgrade to DDR3, but I was a bit turned-off by its price tag!

Good luck.

so my homeboy is coming through, and will put his 940 in my comp @ his pcshop (1 city away, great place) and will put the 1003 bios on.

My quesiton is:
When my bios is installed, and I need to reformat...will I need to go through the same process and use another chip to boot my computer?

No, you don't need to reformat the hard drive if that's what you're asking. All you need to do right now is download the latest bios or whatever bios you need to support your hardware. Put it on the thumb drive (flash drive). Make sure there's nothing on it except those flash files and extract them on thumb drive. (don't leave them in rar files)

Then reboot the computer, and enter setup.

1) Go to Tools->EZ Flash 2-> set the path drive of your thumb drive->browse through and locate the file you want to flash->Select the desire bios and hit "Enter"

2) Wait for it to do its flashing and then proceed to reboot the computer.

3) Power the computer down and pull the power cable from the back of your PSU.

4) Wait 1 minute or drain capacitors by holding down the power button

5) Press "Clear CMOS"

6) Plug back in the power button

7) Turn on and boot up

8) Verify your BIOS by running CPU-Z

Hope this is good enough.

No you shouldn't encounter any problem. A BIOS flashing is used to support hardware updates. Has nothing to do with Windows, drivers, etc.

Once a bios is written, it erases the the BIOS settings you originally have. So its always a good idea to restore your default settings or optimized settings once when you're done flashing.
