P.S. You can add Tom's Hardware's March 2010 $3000 build to the first post.

Welcome, thank you, and added!
Seems to me that your ram is incompatible with your board and Gigabyte needs to update the bios to be compatible with more ram sticks.
Seems there is a bios update to F6, dated 12 March 2010 here. Maybe that will help.
You both can also try Gigabyte's Global Technical Service.

Just posted you an update concerning your memory.
http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...-ram-slot.html

Add me to the UD7 list guys!

I changed the UD7 link to this thread in my sig to blue, hope no one minds just thought it matches the board better.

Ahh hey cool! You didn't have to change it because of me, I just thought I'd make mine blue anyway. I always disobey the rules

So far I've been doing most of my reading up on this board on Extremesystems, they've got a semi-active thread on the UD7 -> link

I wish Gigabyte would release a BIOS that will fix the long POST when you overclock, because waiting for at least 20 seconds for the machine to POST is kinda annoying. I've been using Gigabyte motherboards for years now and I've not seen this issue on other boards, but other than that the motherboard is fine. Also, I heard Gigabyte has another new GA-X58A-UD9 board, can't wait to see what the board looks like. I expect it to be a E-ATX 4 way SLI/Crossfire board with an NF200 chip.

Did you notice the second link I posted? I have recreated the exact same RAM, mobo, processor, and case setup that Tom's used. They reported no issues like this.

...the only difference is the CPU cooling. This afternoon I will remove the back plate and go to bios to see if that is causing a short.

Yeah it has something to do with the voltage regulation of this board when it's OC'ed it boots up in different "stages". Not sure how it works exactly but it shouldn't do that @ stock.

I'ld have to check though.
