Sorry, had a tickle in my throat there.....
The guy tried either different manufacturers or different models of memory, no way it's Corsairs fault.

I obviously wasn't being overly serious.

The new Asus boards made more sense after I read about Intel postponing Ivy for no other reason than to throw a bone to the 1155 board makers. Breaths a little more life into these old 1366 boards though.

I just found this review: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/...rboard_review/ just in case I ain't the only one that's never heard of it. It received an Editor's Choice Silver Enthusiast Award from [Hard]|OCP so it must really be something special.
With ASUS and Gagabyte producing all these new X58 boards when the platform is supposedly EOL and now Ivy Bridge being put off several more months again, the P6X58 and i7-9xx cpu's (which are coming down in price almost every week) are still worth some very serious consideration for people still on the rail over whether to go with LGA155 as I did or go ahead and wait for the LGA 2011. It's something to think about. Especially since I have 2 empty cases and 2 more free ports on my KVM switch!

Funny thing though, CPU-z shows 2GB's in slots 1,2&3 instead of 1,3&5. Any ideas or thoughts? I have rma'd the board like 8 times already and changed the CPU. I have literally changed every part in this computer at least once. Me= frustrated :'(

I've had this problem turn up as well.

I tried everything from changing the RAM around into different slots but Slot B1 would always be the slot that the RAM disappears

My fault was intermittent so its hard to pin down and not that bothersome to me over the many months, not enough to RMA. I tried the stock cooler, different pressure on my NH-D14, have checked the CPU socket pins and can't find anything wrong, even took hi-res pictures at different angles to study in photoshop, same with the ram slot. The CPU pads all have contacts marks. Tried default bios settings, with stock cooler and other QPI RAM voltage settings.

I was convinced it was socket related as I would just flex the cpu cooler slightly and the RAM would show in full. Maybe I was just flexing the board but still convinced it was some physical problem. I've been ultra careful fitting the CPU from new and have read even before buying of cold boot problems on X58 platform.

I recently installed the latest bios and haven't seen any RAM problems yet, 6GB every time. I changed the bios on each new release before 602 hoping something would fix it but as I said I was convinced it was hardware not aligning, perhaps a slightly bent pin that's so hard to see.

Flashing to 602, now I just don't know. It's been a week now haven't seen 4GB. I remember reading a review before buying and they stated it was a bios issue for the 4gb ram problem.

I've not checked back through the thread but I presume you've already installed Bios 602.

With searching over the months this mobo seems the worst for this problem.

Here is my RAM
F3-12800CL8T-6GBRM



The only thing I do notice is when I had the intermittent fault, when I changed back to default bios settings, the full ram would popup without touching anything else, I thought some progress was made but it was short lived and would start showing 4gb pretty soon afterwards but did give me doubt that it may be software after all.

So right now I'm a week in the with the 602 bios, stock cooler at default bios settings and no sign of 4gb, even after waiting a full day and booting it up. I've run stock cooler and default bios settings before a few times with older bios releases to no avail.

I'll report back when I decide to fit my NH-D14 and return my overclocks but now I'm thinking the RAM support is sketchy and I've got lucky with my RAM and the new bios. Maybe flexing the cooler can somehow mask the real problem of software.

You should have RMA'ed it as soon as you saw the problem... now you don't really know if it's fixed or not.

As I said before, its an intermittent fault that hasn't bothered me too much.

Whether it's fixed or not doesn't matter, if it's not fixed then I just carry on using it as before. If fixed then its a little bonus. I don't understand your point of "now you don't really know if it's fixed or not".

I've been 99% happy with the board and don't mind removing stuff once in a while on a rainy day or cleaning dust out etc.

I just bought one from a fellow member here on OCN, to replace my current bloodrage GTI and open the future route of TRI-SLI for my 570's. I'm pretty excited, but I can't install until I have a few days off of work to break down and reassemble the whole watercooling loop.

I am concerned that the SLI spaces are a bit closer, and I don't have as much good airflow in my case. But, we'll see. I do love the fact that the board comes with a fan, which has a sticker saying "optional for watercool" or whatever, lol.

I also hope that I can get my CPU past 3.9ghz, on my bloodrage I couldn't get it past 3.9 without my memory dropping to 2/6gb for some reason, no matter what I did with the voltages, or how I mix/matched the multiplier or whatever. I have good temps and want to push the chip with better voltage control.

Also, everybody is in agreement not to use the SATA 3 without a SATA 3 drive right? I mean the marvell controller isn't known to be that great right? Like I have to sata 2 ssd's and 1 sata 3 HDD. I might hook that one up to it, but I don't expect any gains in performance from that hard drive.

Hi,

I have one.

Didn't like the double connection and pinned them individually.
Off this board.

Let me know.
I'd leave it off.

Well... we are different I cant understand yours either For the money I payed for the board I expect it to work perfectly, and when I buy 6 GB of memory, i expect 6 GB of memory.
