I can't get my new system to boot to windows if I change any overclocking settings in the mobo. I tried timings of 9-9-9-24, as per memory specs. machine flashes windows 7 loading screen and then reboots. I've tried everything i can think of. windows works fine if I factory reset the mobo and let it boot. i've tried all of xmiserys configs in conjuction with different timings setting for the RAM, and nothing works. tried "xmp" profile and same thing. I've hit a brick wall after spending $1400. I made sure my i7 920 is DO stepping, per label - SLBEJ, not SLBEH. At this point I'm thinking it's the memory. does anyone have any suggestions, or be willing to assist. would be greatly appreciated.
I think the problem might be that your ram isn't compatible with this motherboard. I'm basing this off the memory that you have listed in your sig rig, so correct me if I'm wrong. (CMX8GX3M4A1600C9)

That memory is DDR3, but it is double channel memory. This board supports triple channel memory architecture. You'll want to return your memory and get the DDR3 "Triple Channel" modules.

did some checking on that and looks as tho my memory is actually quad channel DDR3 kit. do you still think that would make a difference? I was hoping that it would be something this simple, but still feel like a total noob. hoping newegg.com will take it back.

Not exactly. But, even if it did, I'll finish the reviewers comments on this. "For most gamers, this isn't going to make a difference because they're using only one or two video cards anyway, but triple-card sets may experience a small performance penalty." So basically, running dual cards in SLI or CrossFire you will likely never even see the difference. You would only see a very marginal performance drop when running 3 cards.

I should also point out that you can adjust the PCI-E slots 2 and 3 in the BIOS to 16x/1x or 8x/8x. (I believe ekovalsky mentioned this exact same thing earlier here)

However, that being said, this motherboard supports up to 36 PCI Express 2.0 lanes providing better graphics performance, not 32. That's enough for 2 @ 16x, with 4 lanes leftover for your (2) SATA6 ports and your (2) USB 3.0 ports.

I believe there is a "dual-channel memory mode" on this board, to allow for users who own that kind of ram to be able to still be able to use it. The drawback is that while using double-channel memory, you're only doubling the bandwidth, while the triple-channel will be faster. If this was a new memory purchase, I would try to exchange it or return it somehow and get the right stuff. I'm also not sure how you would enable the "dual-channel memory mode", I think you would have to just use slots A1 + B1 (only though), which means will potentially lose out on using the other 2 dimms? I'd have to research this though. Just for S&G's, try putting in the 2 sticks in A1+B1 and fire it up. But ultimately, you'll want to do some sort of return or exchange. Hope this helps.

Oh so its still possible to run 2x16 pci-e but without filling up all the sata ports and usb ports right?

Thanks for the information!!!

Im new to overclocking, but i cant seem to change bclock and a few other settings even though i have it set to manual, ive searched and havent found anything about this. I figure its something that is common knowledge and i havent run across it.

Manually type in an actual number. I thought the same thing at first.

Example - 210
