This is just a follow up thread from my previous one, about $1500+ wasted... PC is working SO GOOD NOW! Guess what? It wasn't the RAM! or the Mobo, or CPU, or PSU! All it needed was a fresh RE-INSTALL of Windows 7! So for those of you who were involved with my troublesome endeavors, this thread is just to let you know the conclusion to all of this. Love my new system! EDIT: Only thing is my RAM still reads 1333Mhz, instead of 1600Mhz. I don't know how to change it yet with this board.
