I just got a new motherboard today (MSI NF980-G65). After reinstalling Windows and getting most of my programs reinstalled, I decided to re-overclock as well. Problem is, my RAM is supposed to be 1600mhz 7-7-7-20 at 1.85v. The motherboard sets it at 1333mhz 9-9-9-24 1.5v stock. Fine. So I change the RAM to the manufacturer settings and during boot I get "CMOS Checksum Bad". What does this mean? The weird thing is, when I had my CPU at 4ghz just trying to do an overclock similar to my previous motherboard, with the RAM at 1336mhz 6-7-6-19 1.94v everything booted fine. I'm confused. Help?

Looks like changing the battery actually worked. Can't believe they shipped me a new motherboard with a dead battery
. I'll post here if it comes up again.

Thanks Syrillian.

You should try stepping ram timings down one by one. I got that same message when I tried to set my ram to 9-9-9-25. Instead I stepped them down one by one until I got 9-9-9-27. Anyway, it might not be the same issue that you are having but I thought that I would just post that up.
