I have tried this with the Marvel Controller enabled and disabled.
Don't haveall my stuff yet, but reading through the manual for the Pro, your HDD should be plugged into the two grey connectors. These are the two Intel SATA 6.0 connectors. The Intel Rapid Storage Utility will only use the Intel slots.

The marvel controller SATA slots (Dark Blue) are supposed to be used for storage only.

I finally figured out my problem after calling ASUS. I wasn't able to get the board to post at all. I had to take out my memory, and put in one stick of another set of DDR3 memory in the first blue slot closest to the motherboard. (My memory I'm using is on the approved ASUS list) Once I got into bios and changed the memory settings I was able to get my memory to boot.

Is anyone turning off the C6 power saving features?

Anyone have any fully stable results yet? Just got an error in LinX after 47 runs .

I turned off all power saving features.

I was LinX stable last night at 4.4GHz @ 1.2v but after I saved my screenshot the computer BSOD.

LOL there is a part of me that knows I am going to be fiddling with the new build all weekend... and then theres a part of me that really has no desire to fiddle with this board all weekend... oh man gonna be interesting.

So, I've been reading a lot of threads here lately with my new build (first in about 10 years) and finally decided to register and start contributing. So here's my first post with some general info about what I've done and a couple questions.

I'm running the 2600k on the P8P67 Pro and using 2x4gb of G. Skill ripjaws 1600 RAM (1.6v CL7). My very first boot I had no issues, obviously, as it was stock setting and bios set the memory to 1333 by default. First thing I did was update bios to the beta 1053 version from a usb drive (quite easy, btw) and restart. I chose to manually OC the turbo to 4.5ghz and set manual cpu voltage to 1.275 to start out. I also bumped memory up to 1600mhz and set it at 1.6v. After a restart, it automatically set the timings correctly to 7-8-7-24.

I've disabled the Marvell controller as I only have 2x SATA 6gb/s drives (my crucial SSD & my WD storage HDD) and they're connected through the onboard intel SATA III controller. The optical is just hooked up to the standard SATA port. (This build, for the first one I've done in a long time, was very easy and pretty fun in the corsair 600t, by the way!)

Anyway... windows 7 was installed along with all the updated drivers and everything has been running pretty well. Now my questions:

1) I also have been having cold boot issues. The DRAM red light stays lit. Twice now I've just pressed the MemOK! button till restart and just gone into BIOS and changed the speed back to 1600mhz and rebooted fine. I've read the CMOS clearing procedure and people have said that this fixes it... I want to clarify though, were these people unable to boot at all (IE, they weren't using the MemOK! button) and they still can't set memory to 1600mhz without cold boot problems OR does the CMOS reset procedure actually allow me to set to 1600mhz and leave it there with no more cold boot problems?

2) I left my system running prime95 torture test last night (the blend one that says "produces max heat") running the specs I mentioned above (4.5ghz @ 1.275v). I haven't messed with any of the other voltage options. My system was still stable & running this morning. The temps as noted by Real Temp as well as HWMonitor were 60, 65, 62, 62 current. The MAX it hit was 68C on the second core and this was about 30m after I started running the test.
Does that seem high to you for only 1.275v? Ambient in the room was about 23C and this was with the Scythe Mugen 2 rev B (Not top of the line, but still pretty good... despite it's pain in the butt mounting design.) I used Arctic MX-4 instead of the included compound if that matters and the cooler is on there pretty tight as far as my limited experience can tell. I'm using the included fan set up with the heatpipes horizontally and the fan over the RAM blowing towards the back of the case. I also have the cpu fan set to run 100% all the time.

2b) Are there any voltage options that I should change that might bring temps down? I admit I haven't played with the bios much yet, but my goal was to get 4.8ghz for 24/7 use in the low 1.3v range and stay mid 60s max for temp, but if I'm already hitting 68c, I don't want to push it much further (until more solid safe data is out there!).

3) This is my first SSD. It's one of the newer Crucials (the c300 128gb SATA III) and from what I understand, that paired with Windows 7 should take care of itself for the most part. What other options should I enable / disable to max it's performance? I turned off indexing already and Windows already had it detected as an SSD and had not turned on defrag scheduler. I tried to do some searching, but most of what I found was for older SSDs and / or was contradicting.

Well, sorry for the long winded post, but this has been by far one of the most informative sites I've found and I just wanted add my bit and see if anyone had any more answers for me. Thanks guys!
I have done the clear CMOS thing after having cold boot issues. Since then I have set the RAM back to 1600 and it still boots fine without any issues

Also, here is a good guide for SSD tweaks, etc...

all the posts in this thread had me incredibly paranoid by the time my boxes of parts showed up this afternoon, so far this has been the easiest, most stable system I've put together in years. At least for running on default settings... w/o any tweaking or playing with any settings, it's already cruising at 4.3ghz

Flashing the bios from a thumb drive using the mouse/keyboard combo in uefi before even slotting in my first hard drive was a real treat.
glad you didn't have ram problems, i had ram problems for a while, but yea oc super easy.

I just change multiplier to 44 and it booted it and stable


on another note, do not disable USB 3.0 controller it will cause your system to shut off when you restart it and boot up 3 secs later after shutdown. just a note

On to some other things...
I disabled my Marvell SATA controller to avoid the whole "No Hard Disk Detected" double post junk, but I was still seeing the ASUS splash screen twice. The only way I have found around this is to also disable the JMB SATA controller, but I'm assuming this will kill my eSATA ports. It greatly improves my boot time and I don't have any eSATA devices currently connected, but it's a pet peeve of mine to have disabled ports because I will probably forget I did it later and wonder why my device isn't working. Has anyone else found a way around the second splash screen?
Disable ASUS splash screen, then the bios screen will come up. Also once you disable the splash screen you can set the amount of seconds you want the bios screen to come on.

What's the lowest you can set that to?

i'm i the only want without ram issue or double cold booting. I'm using the corsair vengeance 1600 @ 1866mhz. The only issue that i can think of is that i cannot touch my BCKL. if i change it even to 100.1 or 99.9 instead of the 100 i get the "overclocking fail".

By the way my first mobo would not post and returned. Got another one thats has been rock solid.
