  1. Do you have any overclock on that CPU?

    Does the RAM (with all sticks in) boot if you set it to 1333?

    What's your PSU?

    When you do get windows to boot up, are all your temperatures reasonable?
  2. No oc, no, corsair ax 1200, 25c
  3. Newer boards are particularly fussy about how tight a heat sink is. Is it possible you tightened the block a little too much? I had a similar issue with my P6T is why I'm saying this. It only recognized 4gb of ram and wouldn't boot in triple channel no matter what I did. After a ton of angry reading I found a lot of people having memory issues and the tightening thing was one of the fixes.
  4. you mean the water-block on the cpu???
