Reedo what bios do you have? I had the same problem I got mine out of the box and it had bios 1.1. When I tried to up anything it would not post but then I flashed the bios to 1.3 and overclock city lol.
Agreed - Make sure you have the bios 1.3 as it deals with some of the RAM instability issues as you your running 8gb's!!!

Ok you can download the new bios from here dont use the MSI live software that comes with the board as ive found it to be rather unstable! - http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=do...1&prod_no=1740

Do you have a USB stick?

I noticed a massive improvement going over to 1.3. Could not get past 3.6 stable with my NB over 2.4 and my Ram at 1600.

Now stable at 3.7Ghz with my NB at 2.64Ghz and my ram at 1600 @ 7-7-7-24

Can’t wait for the next bios update! This board is still young and I think we can expect improvement with each new bios

Also I really need to get me a 955!!!! Lol!! So jealous of you guys!

Yea am gonna try and trade my 720 for a 955 I think! You should get some good results on water! You should be able to push a 1.6Vcore and maybe higher!
