    I like action/comedies/horror. I mean really I may love the movie, but I'm discouraged by the trailers, like people doing ducking bullets and shit like that.

    Ah, so it's more of a prejudicial thing. I'm ok with that :D If you ever decide to watch it, just watch part 1. 2 and 3 don't even belong anywhere near part 1.

    But sentinels are like giant fucking techno squid, pretty well designed.

    Agreed.

    Though the second was fairly decent imo.

    Does anyone know if these phase LED's lighting up during startup are anything to be worried about? They've been lighting up ever since I got the board, just never thought anything of it.

    [​IMG]

    Also I had a scare last night. It was hanging up on verifying DMI pool data. Checked all of the settings and couldn't get any change, even taking out my spare 80GB didn't help. Finally after I booted up the Windows disc and got to the console in the repair options and ran the FixMbr command it booted up. I have a feeling it will do it again the next time I restart though. CMOS is probably corrupted, need to reset it.

    the light should all come on to start, mine do on both my GB boards. Durring usse of the system, if you det them to function via bios, they will show the voltage limit. Green is in spec, yellow is pushing it, and red is you better know what you are doing.

    For the second part, my guess is your ram settings are all on auto. I suggest start with the right voltage, and set manually the first 4 timings IE 8-8-8-24 for instance.

    Bios flashing is also very easy. Get the bios file, and put it on a USB stick formatted FAT32. Set the boot priority to that drive in bios, reboot, look for the bios utility, I think you hit HOME during boot, then flash away. JUST BE SURE you have the CORRECT bios for your EXACT board;)

    So basically, I can try adjusting the memory timings manually to see if it helps the boot problem, or take the easy route and just flash to a new BIOS. Is finding a specific BIOS hard? Also, could you get one that comes with OC'd settings?

    New bios is not likely to fix the problem, but you might as well do it now.

    BIOS is easy. get the latest, not a specific one. and lol no to OC'd settings, dont be silly... what if it didnt work? no worky PC.

    Yeah I guess it was a silly question, just wondering. If it's not likely to fix the problem, then why do it? Just for added stability or something?

    I think the ram is what is causing the issue, so I suggest starting with what I mentioned above.

    For the bios, new isnt always better, but why not run the newest? I didnt say they were tough to get, just due to one wrong letter or a revision of the board, the bios wont work. thats why I stress to find the right one, or at least doublecheck before you download it;)

    If you check on your mobo driver CD you'll find a program that will download and flash your bios from within windows no need for dos box command line crap

    I've used it heaps of times on gigabyte mobo's works really well

    Would putting the standard back down to "Standard" from "Turbo" (medium) help any? I did that, and saw that the timings were at stock which is 6-6-6-18 2.0V. Booted up fine but now my CPU fan is spinning a lot faster :confused:

    cause it might change some default/auto settings for better compatibility. i needed to do it to get my ram completely stable at 1600Mhz.

    I forgot about those. I might give them a go. Not really happy with straight 10.4 or 10.5.

    I have almost 10TB between all of my systems and externals.

    I could fill 15TB in no time if I decided to back up all my BD's. I want a 50TB array. :D
