Have you encountered any BSOD's, error messages or instabilities?
Slay,

When I ran the HW Monitor, it was 91 degrees in my computer room. So that is why the temps are slightly hotter.

I called Gigabyte. They told me the two beeps at start up clearly indicates something went south with the MOBO. They are asking me to RMA it.

So that is where I am in this wonderful process of building this new computer.

I realize you do not like Gigabyte. I have built several systems with their boards and this is the first MB that has given my problems.

Anyway, I will wait for their RMA ticket, then send this back [$10 for priority mail shipping there]. They will ship another MOBO within 2-3 days according to their site.

Thanks for your help.

I'll let you know what happens.

Take good care Slay!

Soar

Slay,

Yes, I was still getting lots of BSOD's. I sent the MOBO back, Gigabyte told me it tested fine, no problems with it.

So I am back to square one [minus the $10 it cost me to ship the MOBO to Gigabyte and minus the 4 weeks that I have been trying to get this system stable].

Do you have any other suggestions? [I feel like ripping the rip jaws out of the ripjaw memory...]

I think it's a heat issue, if you kept the room temperature in the 75-80F range I think all your problems would go away. I don't think new ram is going to perform any differently. For now I would just run the cpu at stock speeds and the memory at 1333 MHz. It should start cooling off in another month and I think you'll see a big difference as your room temperatures drop.

Slay,

Ok, and thanks for the great ideas and suggestions you have given me over the past few weeks.

I appreciate you and the patience you have shown me.

Have a wonderful week!

UPDATE: Removed the G.skill RAM, installed A-DATA 1600, and ever since, the system is perfectly stable.
Also ran Memtest 86+ as well as Prime95 torture tests and all is well.

It was the RAM all along.

Temps in my house vary between 58 and 96 f and neither hot nor cold has caused a crash or BSOD since I slapped in the A-DATA sticks.
