Asus Sabertooth X58 Problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I recently help my best friend build a new computer with the Asus Sabertooth X58 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131665&cm_re=asus_sabertooth_x58-_-13-131-665-_-Product) and i7-950. For some reason some of the bios setting keep reseting randomly, it doesnt always happen. The main problem is the Ram settings. If the RAM is not running at certain speed the computer crashes or gives boot up errors.

He is using Corsair Dominator RAM with speeds settings (Factory Speeds) of 8-8-8-24. Im pretty sure the problem is Motherboard related, but how do I know for certain? Could it be the ram?

Does he need to return the motherboard?

Thanks!
Dorothy
