As you can see, I joined today to see if someone could help me getting by R3F to work without crashing in W7 Ultimate (x64). The board has not been OC'd in anyway (yet), running the 0505 BIOS. Oh - and I've read every post in this thread first
The system is running a i7-950, 6GB of PC3-12800 Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D, and a XFX HD6870.
The board will run solid in W7U in 32-bit mode, but once I install W7U in 64-bit I get random shutdowns after about 20-25 min of uptime - so fast that you can't see a BSOD. The mini dump files indicate a '141' error. I've run a couple of memory diagnostics overnight and all seems well.
Temps all seem within what others have observed: CPU 40 - MB 25 - IOH 44 - ICH 38
I've reinstalled W7U-64 about 8 times now and get the same issue - even without installing any drivers. I'm leaning toward RAM issues... but that's a hunch.
Could anyone offer hints/help with how you got your machine stable upon initial setup with Win 7 Ultimate x64? Or - is it time to start RMA'ing piece by piece?
Thanks for your help.
