ok i bought the GA-8IG1000MK and just installed it and booted it up and as always the first time is never a charm so i made sure everything was seated right and the whole time i was wearing anti-static wrist band so that shouldnt have been a problem. so then i rebot it and it boots up fine and starts loading windows then all of a sudden screen black and restart then it restarted during "detecting IDE" and just restarted over and over there which really ticked me off. so i check the ram and remove one and it boots up normaly and then same thing it restarts in windows and sometimes during the "welcome to windows" it even rebooted while i was browseing the bios! i think my new mobo is "prefried" :/ by the way i reseated all my ram and tried to run it with each of them out and different orders i made sure my G-card was seated correctly..my sound card... wireless card. checked power plugins from psu. rearranged my plugs to different hardware. REALLY weird and a few times it didnt restarted for like 10 mins so i decided to try a game and se what happend so i played UT2004 for like 5 mins then it restarted then the next time it let me browse the comp i tried Lineage 2 and it restarted
Oya im running kingston HyperX 2 512 peices and it only shows them to be 256 each that also ticks me off
My CPU runs at about 30-35C when im looking in bios so it dosent look like over heating
My computer specs.
CPU P4 2.66 ghz 533 FSB
Graphics card ATI radeon 9600 XT
Memory DDR 500MHz (PC4000) KHX4000/512
Also im running 2 256 peices of ddr Im not sure where they came from lol and they are cheap but they seam to work and they never gave me problems it still shows my Hyperx to be 256's even w/o them in so i dont think they have much to do with it and it also restartes with or without them installed.
