Everything is working like a dream appart from 1 thing!!
When i start the PC up, the fans and lights come on, the monitor doesn't.
I then see a red light on the motherboard, and hear a click.
The fans remain on but the monitor is still in standby.
It's like the motherboard is resetting itself.
After it does this 2-3 times, the monitor then comes on and everything is perfect. no issues at all. if i reset the PC, still no problems.
The above only happens when the PC has been off for a while.
I phoned ASUS to ask if they knew why this was happening, they told me that the RAM i purchased is not 100% compatable with the motherboard, and that it was a slightly different version then the certified RAM.
MMh is that memory u got tri channel? I only read in the asus page that it's a dual channel architecture mobo. I had a problem like that using tri channel on an AM3 board.
Have u noticed the thing mentioned at the bottom of the g.skill site?
"*G.Skill guarantees 2 Dimms dual channel operation would reach announced specification."
It is similar to the problem i've mentioned before. I bought 2 corsair ddr3 tri channel dimms for my AM3 board, and it was ok aslong as they operated at dual channel, but if not, it'd keep bsod'in unless i removed 1Dimm
