That will mean so much work for me though, rebuilding 2 raid arrays, rein stalling windows and all my apps, plus copying back 2.5 TB of data from extrnal drives to the raid array. Thats about 18 hours right there.

Do I just have a bad board or is it a clash between the P6X58D and my G.SKILL ram?
I am not super knowledgeable about all this but if your RAM is on the QVL for this board you should be ok. I know some have used RAM that is not and they have been ok as well. I think I remember another person having issues with G.SKILL RAM or OCZ or some brand, I don't recall. I have trolled through this thread as much as I could and I think your problem lies in the minority. Most people have not had issues but I can understand if you would want to switch to a different brand of board.

When I first built my rig I only ordered 6GB of Ram (3x2GB sticks). After hearing that some had issues with recognizable RAM issues I ordered another 6GB of Ram (3x2GB sticks) just to make sure my board detected all slots so I could RMA the board if I needed to. Of course in the end all seems well and my board detects it all and I am very happy. I suggest you just get another board and have another go at it. I think overall from reading the posts on here that people with this board are very happy. I cannot say anything about the Gigabyte or Evga boards cause I don't know anything about them.

I do hope that someone with a little more knowledge could give me a good answer about RAID. I would go out tomorrow and get another HDD if I knew that I could safely transport all my current data, OS and all to another drive temporarily, and after RAIDing two HDD's transport it all back without skipping a beat. and how to go about doing this exactly. I do have a feeling that this is not possible but who knows.

If you RMA the board which I am sure you will please give us an update cause I'm curious how it turns out for you

Could I possibly transport all my current data somehow to a different HDD from a old computer I have, RAID 0 two 1TB HDD's, then transfer it back... OS and all? I see a lot of people using these SSD drives. Makes me kind of wonder if I should get one.
You should be able to use a product by vmware called vCenter.

It allows you to create a virtual image of your existing system and then turn the image to a physical disk or disks if your using raid.. I havent used it for a long time, but this should work

Hi everyone. First time poster here. I've been trying to find a motherboard that doesn't hiss which led to to comparing the Gigabyte X58A-UD5 and the Asus P6X58D. I'm familiar with the BIOS on the Gigabyte, but not the Asus which led me to your site. I put in Xmsiery's settings for 4.2 GHz and was floored it's all stable with less voltage than I was running with the Gigabyte. I was running the Gigabyte at a 20x multiplier with higher BCLK and at 4.1GHz was hitting temps of 75c. With Xmisery's settings however at 21x multiplier and at 4.2 GHz I'm running A FULL 10c cooler. Is this possible? Is real-temp lying to me? I'm running Prime95 and Linx stable and just assumed higher multiplier meant higher temps on the CPU? I was ready to ditch the Asus to go back to the gigabyte since there's less electrical noise on the Gigabyte, but if I'm comparing apples to apples I'll be sticking with the Asus.

I'm trying to punish this board right now and so far have had no RAM detection issues... yet. But I'm using 6 Gig in triple channel configuration not 12 Gig. I have G.SKIll Trident 2000: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231254

Had to go and open my big mouth. Got home this morning and it wouldn't post. Used the "mem ok" switch to reset and dropped the settings down to 3.8G and it fired up.

Will try using three green's adjusted settings on CPU & QPI/DRAM since he's also running the 930 and see if that helps.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this isn't isolated to just ASUS X58 boards.

It also occurs across a wide range of boards based on the X58 chipset, including Giga's and EVGA etc

What model number of G.Skills are they? And what other troubleshooting steps have you taken?

Some common known culprits/remedies:

► Improper CPU/PAD contact
► Re-seat your CPU
► Check socket for bent pins
► Adjust the tension of your cooler
► Faulty IMC on CPU
► Bent / damaged pins in RAM socket
► RAM timings to aggressive
► Iffy PSU
► Dud Mobo
► *wildcard*

I had a similar problem when I first put mine together. It was overclocked to 4.0ghz + HT and all was fine for 3 weeks.

It was 24hr P95 stable, 24hr memtest error free, 20+ IBT okay and then one day I lost 2GB on a cold boot.

It turned out one of my OCZ gold modules had died. (QVL)

I got a temporary replacement kit of G.Skill NQ's (QVL) and had the same issue of not detecting all RAM. I re-seated the CPU, adjusted cooler tension and it 'improved' the detection rate, but it still happened occasionally on cold boot/restart.

I then discovered one of my video cards was dying (erratically fluctuating voltages), removed it and since then (about 2 months) it has been reporting all 6GB every time, even after replacing the G.Skill's with my RMA'ed returned OCZ Gold.

So, I can understand your frustration and am sorry I'm ultimately no help (I think I fell under the wildcard category ) but maybe I might be able to at least give you other angles to consider.
