[QUOTE Today the ASUS support advised me to go back and test each slot 1 at a time to try to see if I have a bad slot.

Well, thanks to you that responded, the advice to check one slot at a time turned out to be valid. My slot 1 and slot 2 are non respondo.......4gb in slots 3 and 4 work perfectly. So I have a bad motherboard.... Now here is the fun part (aside from the prospect of tearing it apart again) there are no replacement boards to be found, with one exception some vendor trying to rip you off for almost $500 instead of $364.....Newegg has none, they are the ones I got the board from. So if I take the board out and send it to Newegg and I have no clue as to how long I would be down without a replacement. Just the luck I guess, but I spent almost 3 weeks trying to debug this problem.....

I got impatient and overpaid for mine and I know I gonna be ticked when they're available again. Instead of an rma to newegg maybe you could look into what asus can do for you? This whole p67 chipset issue really blows!

I so agree. Hope you didn't buy the one at almost $500. on Amazon, that's not a good seller. The problem in overpaying is that is not a guarantee that board will work either. The right price is $364.99 or thereabouts.

And yes I did contact ASUS USA and tried to appeal to them, I also offered to give them a deposit if needed so I could do a same day exchange and install. I DREAD the thought of tearing it apart again......Also, there is always a remote chance that the CPU pins get a little off kilter as there is a lot of pressure needed to lock the CPU down, best to hold the cpu in place while closing..

[[EDIT] Ooops. Just read your post on the previous page. Sorry. ]

Chuck,

Just curious. What happens when you have two RAM sticks, one in slot 2 (red) and one in slot 4 (red)? You know, the way Asus says they should be for optimal performance if using two sticks, on page 2-5 and page 2-13 of the motherboard manual?

Try getting in touch with ASUS for an RMA. I had a problem with my MIVE B3 and they were able to advance RMA it for me. Granted I had to pay 30 bucks for overnight shipping... but it was better than waiting for weeks.

They also offer free ground (which is only recommended if you're on the west coast) and Two Day shipping for 20 bucks. I figured, 10 bucks more and I get it in a day....

Give them a call, if you don't get anywhere with tech support... ask to speak with Trinity in Customer Support.
