A lot of people on the asus forums are having this problem. A member found a fix that helped about half of them. You need to switch over a thing on the mobo(physically). Clearing CMOS and removing battery after. I'll find the link when I get home since I'm on my phone.
I am having problems getting the machine to boot without BSOD at rated memory timings. I am in contact with ASUS reps to try and see if the problem can be diagnosed and resolved.
Here are my specs:
Asus P67 Deluxe MOBO
OCZ Vertex 2 SSD
Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium
Gskill 8GB RAM (2x4GB) - 1600 CL8 - Ripjaws X (F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM)
I am on Asus BIOS 1053 right now...
I have a fresh install of windows on a new build.
The problem I am getting is that the RAM works 100% fine at 1333 CL9 (9/9/9/24). But the RAM is rated at 1600 CL8 (8/8/8/24) and I would like to use it as such.
When I manually change the RAM to 1600 8/8/8/24 or use XMP Profile to adjust to the same, Windows gets BSOD every time the machine is booted before Windows comes up. The machine then automatically restarts after 1-2 seconds on Blue Screen.
I have tried all troubleshooting steps...switching RAM, trying 1 stick, clearing CMOS, updated BIOS, reinstalling Windows, etc...nothing solves the issue.
The machine becomes very unstable including some freezing on black screen and double booting when on 1600MHz for RAM.
Again, everything is 100% stable at 1333. Also BIOS Auto defaults to 1333 whenever I clear CMOS.
I have cleared CMOS several times both without battery and pull and also with.
Not sure what to try next...??
