I will try that.

So to work in dual channel would I be ok picking up another 4GB stick as long as it was identical to what i already have?
This would mean 4GB dominator sticks in all 4 slots.

Or do I need to buy a specific dual channel kit?

A2 and b2 are the recommended slots to use. You can just use two sticks. But it is best if you clear your cmos via the blue jumper in between the second and third pcie slots first.

It's most likely a BIOS problem.

Even though! Some people claim to have solved it by updating to the 1053 bios and clearing the CMOS (by switching the jumper)... I haven't tried it... so i don't know.
Hey guys,

So i decided to try clearing the CMOS... Figured if it was already buggy, nothing worse could happen. AND IT WORKED.

It doesn't make sense, but it worked. I'm running with exactly the same settings as before, tested memory in all slots, and my computer doesn't do the restart ritual before booting.

EDIT: For the sake of information: My RAM were previously running @ the a2 b2 (blue), and now they're at the a1 b1 (black)... I have tested them in both slots, and they work fine in either. so i decided to keep them in the a1 b1 slots.

The "double boot" with the p67 boards is not uncommon.

So it's not only ASUS? Good.

Waiting for BIOS updates then
post #17 of 20
The double boot is memory timing detection, is usually happens the first few times and after bios updates. I goes away.

why did u get so much ram? I highly doubt you can even use 8gb let alone 12gb of ram in your typical use

Thanks for the replies.
I have so much memory because im using this machine for video editing.

Can someone just clarify the following:

1 - clearing the CMOS may fix my problem.
Should I clear it first then update the bios, or update the bios and then clear?

2 - I need memory in all 4 slots to utilise dual channels, otherwise it will fall back to single channel?
I currently have 3 sticks of 4GB, if I purchase a fourth stick (thus using 4gb in all four slots) will this be supported and utilise dual channel with all 16gb?

Thanks for your help

1) Just reset everything to default then flash then do a clear cmos after update for good measure. At least thats always my method. I then leave the power unplugged for a minute or two to let all power out of the board.

2)since you own a dual channel board you need to use ram in multiples of two. So yes you need to buy another stick or take one out. That is if you want all running in dual channel. Otherwise if you use 3 sticks the last stick runs in single channel mode by itself.
