    Hmm, I guess I better read through that very carefully, because as of now this system is a serious fucking piece of shit!!!!!! Constantly giving me BSOD's, terribly fucking slow to boot windows, running hot as hell on liquid cooling..........An on, an on, an on!!!!

    Christ that i7 30 socket 1366 is 10 times the system this piece of shit is!!!

    Can you all tell I am really fucking disgusted with this shit?

    Good thing it is the middle of the week and I am sober as a preacher or I would take a damn sledge hammer to this fucking thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    However, this is one of the Gigabyte boards that either have serious issues or you get a good one........Well I didn't get a good one! Refund RMA through NewEgg was filed last night! Purchased an Asrock from Paulieg early this morning, so hopefully that will cure a ton of the fucked up problems with this POS!

    If not, I am selling all of this Intel shit and going right back to the ole trusted AM3 systems!

    Oh yea, and this "Please install IRST 10.5 or above" fucking shit!!!!!! WTF???? It has 10.8 installed:mad:

    Got to tell all of ya, I am not impressed with the fucking Intel Sandy fucking Bridge shit so far!!!!!

    I feel I just dumped a ton of money into a fucking boat anchor to be honest!

    In all honesty, the only thing I like about it is how cool it runs and the PPD I get out of it from crunching, I rather overclock and mess with AMD anyday. I feel your pain, maybe I can't overclock to save my life, but this platform has also been a good headache for me.

    I hope the new board works. I got my issue sorted out, but it took me a bit man. I just followed the stuff in the opening post of that link I provided.

    Well with all the frustration and madness I have to agree with the crunching numbers CP!

    It is just very very frustrating to spend a ton of money to put together a "top" line system and have it a serious POS!

    However I am going to probably have to shut this system down before the end of the weekend to get it shipped back to NewEgg for a refund. That will put me at my AMD 555 unlocked and the i7 930 running. Even though the i7 930 puts out some pretty good numbers this system will almost double that.

    Was just going to add the i7 930 tonight when this sucker BSOD'd again!!! Needless to say, I have been fucking around with this POS all night trying to get it to stay running, and it seems the only way is to keep it at stock clocks and what not. Oh well I guess, live and learn.

    Sorry to hear that man. But honestly, I've got 5 of them crunching at the moment and if you can get them going well, you definitely can't regret it.

    So let me know if you need any help bro. The link Chicken Patty provided is the one I used to sort mine out and seems to have done the job for him too.

    it did the job mostly, something is still up with this PC, but at 4GHz it's pumping out over 6k ppd, so in all honesty, it's staying like this. Runs great, stable, and cool. But the guide definitely cleared so many things up for me, did wonders in all honesty.

    Yep, once I receive the motherboard from Paul I will be going through that thread with a fine tooth comb for sure.

    Thank you so much CP for the link, and thanks to everyone for being mega helpful and supportive on this whole quest. :)

    Notorious for having memory issues. However if I can get the smoking deal on a 2500K that I might have, I will probably keep it and see if I can work the bugs out and install the 2500K in it. I will take the 2700K and install in the board that I purchased from Paulieg. That would give me 3 i7 systems crunching away. :rockout:

    :laugh: I thought so. It would be the i7 930, i7 2500K, and the i7 2700K. Should be able to pull in about 11k PPD a day; don't ya think?

    Im ordering a full size case on tuseday, Would you be interested in my ASrock Z68 Pro3-M board to trade for that one?

    It is rock stable on 4.3Ghz and have not had a single memory issue on my ripjaws.

    The reason I ask if that I may go SLI soon and my board does not support it.

    Probably not Brandon. I have three systems that I am going to run SLi and CrossfireX. Sorry man, if it would have supported one or the other I would for sure man.

    @crunching team: Got the deal cut on the 2500K chip, so should have that and the other motherboard by the end of the week. I will be putting that all together just as soon as I receive it to get it crunching......Of course I will have to do some shifting around with parts. :laugh:

    Will be running the wife's with the i7 930, my main system with the other motherboard and the i7 2700K, and the dedicated cruncher only with the Gigabyte board and the 2500K chip.
