This is all on F2 BIOS, BTW.
My build along with my other 3 PC's I have including my bros PC does the SAME thing on Memtest. Its a issue with memtest IMO and not the ram.

Example. My bros PC runs DDR2-1066 @ 5-5-5-15 timings (OCZ rated). Well we set those in the bios (CPUZ shows them also) but then when we run memtest it shows DDR2-890 9-9-9-24 timings.

Yea WEIRD.

Not sure about Memtest but CPU-Z is reporting properly. I just swapped in new ram when I installed everything in the case a few minutes ago and the default timings of this new ram successfully updated and display correctly with no BIOS interaction.

Before tearing things down I was testing the new BIOS F2 with the original ram, Patriot Sector 5 that would error within 15mins @ Cas8 at stock speed, and not even Post @ Cas7 rated timings with a heavy overvolt, were up and running at rated Cas7 timings on Auto. It looks as if Gigabyte made some good headway here in this 1st revision. Hopefully more good things to come.

I believe Gigabyte released these boards early to catch some hot sales with the fresh X6 chips, and the original BIOS was a little premature. Many HW review sites had posted "Previews" of these weeks ago, and while they were cranking out reviews on the MSI and ASUS boards, but nothing more on the Gigabyte 890FX boards. I think Giga asked them to wait, or the reviewers let them know of the problems, and they have been waiting for a more mature BIOS. Good to see them crank one out this fast.

I haven't flashed my BIOS yet however:

Memtest 4.1+, CPU-Z, and F1 BIOS are all in agreement regarding my memory settings

As noted in my sig. I'm running Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) rated @ 7-9-7-24 & 1.65v..... For this test it was set @ 1333MHz & 9-9-9-24

The system is rock solid at the settings in my Sig. per an extended BFBC2 torture @ it's highest settings. I'll be bumping it up slowly over time.

It passed a short BFBC2 test this morning with CPU at 3.7: Multiplier @ 18.5 and stock voltage with C&Q on. I'll run it hard when I get home after work. If successful, I'll turn my attention to the memory next.

When I called Gigabyte to find out why they were late to market with their 890FXA boards they told me (among other things) that they were flooded with calls asking about when the boards would be released. They also told me it was a "shipping issue" and assured me that they were ready... keeping in mind that I was talking to the sales department I'm was inclined to believe as Biermann does. I have also been inquiring all over the place about the lack of reviews for this board with little response.

Can you tighten those timings at all? If you ram is rated for 7-9-7-24 I think it should run those? Not to mention you dropped the speed. Is it a board or Ram issue?

It's faster for everyone. Gigabyte is a Taiwanese company based out of Taipei, so it's only natural to update their Taiwanese site first .

EDIT: Just ran 3DMark06 and got a score of 17687 with everything at stock settings. CPU score was 5688. 3DMark06 doesn't recognize my 1090T . It just says "missing CPU".

Also, I updated my memtest floppy to version 4.1 and now it won't load. Does anybody know what's going on? At startup with the floppy in, it says "loading" and then reboots.

And here's my CPU-Z banner so that I can be added to the club.

Can you revert back?

I'll try later, but first I want to try 4.1 again with a bootable USB drive.
