Thats just rude. I'm out of work. if i didnt nearly cut my arm off I'd still be making enough to buy the ram i need.

About the only way to fix these sorts of problems without replacing the Ram, is to make some adjustments to the either the voltage settings or the memory settings in bios.

The 790i is very picky about memory settings, one of worst boards in this regard but getting the memory settings correct usually will fix this type of problem.

The OCZ memory is the worst choice you could have made for your 790i, no offence but true none the less. If you can post your bios settings I can help you.

I've heard several times that the 790i is very picky about ram, and ya bad move on my part to cheap out on ram. ill post my bios settings in a minute. just gotta do a quick reboot.

EDIT: anyone know of an easy way to print bios settings? or something along those lines?

Your going to think I'm crazy, but try this real quick. Go into Power Options and set it to high performance, rather than power saver. It worked for me, and a host of others.

It was just a suggestion. I can see your frustration level rising, so I figured I would throw that out there, just in case you didn't have it set to high performance.

its fine i appreciate the suggestion. my sanity is a little out the window right now so i'm sorry if i've come off as a bit of a jerk. I've been stuck at home for around 2 months now, i dont live near town and i cant drive with my arm the way it is so i'm a bit miserable. I'll be posting those bios settings momentarily.
