I have just bought the new Asus P6X58D board, and 3x1 gig Triple Channel) OCZ Ram (OCZ3G1600LV3GK) together with an Quad i7 920.
Problem is that the board won`t boot, or post at all. All led`s on the board lights normally, but unfortunately also the red light that indicates a Ram failure . When pressing the Memok feature it just reboot the board, and is not acting as it should do. Im very confused, has tried nearly everything, replaced cabels , rotating ram etc. My graphiccard is ATI 4770. Power is OCZ 600W. The ram is on the QVL, so i dont understand why nothing boots up.
I think it might be a bad motherboard, but if you could give me a hint or some advise how to handle this problem, i would be most grateful.
P.S. I have read the "New build won't boot" checklist !!
I have already tried that, but nothing works. I had a talk with the reseller today, and they will send me a new motherboard.
Theres no doubt that theres a seroius flaw in the board, nothing is booting at all, i have tried everything now.
I have exact same issue, have just RMAed board back to Newegg, interested in knowing what issue is causing the problem. I removed every part except the cpu, still no beep or activity. ram led lit, of course. tried another PS, no improvement
I had a similar problem. I changed the thermal paste on my new i7 980x cpu but used too much. I turned on the computer and it had a seizure. I cleaned out all the excess thermal paste (I put way too much and got down into the pins). After that it wouldn't boot and no display. All mobo lights on including the Memok light on the ASUS P6T premium mobo. I tried the memok button and taking 2 of the DRAM out but didn't work. Finially, I took the battery out to clear the CMOS. After that it worked, but it went back to my original BIOS setting. Thank god, at first I thought I fried my new $1100 i7 980x chip.

I just had same problem as others, bought from newegg as well. RMAing the board now. Unfortunately I thought it might be the cpu, and couldn't wait so I went and bought a 2nd cpu to test - same result - clearly the board. It also seems that a lot of people have problems with ddr3 - 1600 ram, or maybe it's just popular
