I think it was an issue with the RAM, noticed the same problem in the Newegg comments with other motherboards (OCZ Gold DDR3 6GB RAM), though after manually configuring it it seems to be very good RAM (running at 1.5V, 1600 speed just fine).

Both boards are pretty solid, but the gigabyte is cheaper by about 30$ so i ended up choosing that
