Hi I have a P7P55D EVO board brand new and I also have ram problems. I have the i7 860 2.8mhz cpu and 8 gig of corsair 1333mhz ram. My computer freezes for no aparent reason. This is random but is getting worse. I pulled out all the ram and am running with 2 gig for now till i figure this out. I still get freezes but not as many.Is a mother board thing or a ram thing? I am about to order some patriot ram and try it.

Any suggestions...

Have you tried to update bios to the latest release? version 1207? it has many new options for ram and especially for i7 at the o.c tab
i also have the same motherboard with an i5 - 750 and these for ram **Corsair 4GB DDR3-1333 Ram Kit (2 x 2GB, PC3 10666, 9-9-9-24, TW3X4G1333C9A)**
I have updated bios, install the latest chipset, audio, lan, sata drivers and my only problem is an old hd ide maxtor 250gb that appears and dissapears sometimes, even at the bios.
1)**be carefull, once you update the bios, u have first to save the original.
2)***and then the downgrade of bios seems difficult. ezflash2 doesnt allow you do it. i did it **for tested reasons** only with the latest asus update program inside the o.s

Thanks for the reply, I haven't yet tried the bios update, I have the exact type of ram you have , I put all 8 gig back in and manually set it down to the next speed 1076 or whatever it was instead of the 1333 alot less freezes but still get them and it also defeats the purpose of buying the 1333. I will try the update as soon a I figure out how to save the old version.

Thanks again

NOTICE THAT: you cant downgrade the bios later (is your risk to stay with 1207 version)
i only managed to downgrade with this bad tool from asus (asus update utility) from the windows, from 1207 to 1002 to 0915 to 0911 step by step for tested reasons only. NOT TO THE ORIGINAL BIOS that comes with your motherboard drivers dvd.

**i5 750 suggest to have 1333 memory, for an i7 i dont know what type you should use.

Maybe is better before you update the bios to take the memories back to the shop and change them (lifetime quarantie)
