Default Re: Evga 790i & G.Skill 1600 DDR Trouble

Played around more tonight with some good results, found something odd. If the CPU FSB is set at 1.30v it will cause the strange low res issue within windows.

I started setting voltages mostly all manually now due to auto setting them too high for my quad it seems. Kind of nice the q9450 can go from 2.4ghz to 3.2ghz on just 1.21v.

Got it to boot into windows at 7-7-7-20 2T @ 1600 Linked / Synced.
CPU Core [1.25v] 1.21v
CPU FSB [1.20v]
Memory [1.90v] 1.88v
nForce SPP [1.30v] 1.32v
nForce MCP [auto] 1.5v

7-6-6-24 2T (Rams specced rating) @ 1600 Linked / Synced with even 1.950v memory, after the windows loading bar it will blackscreen with just a mouse there. No vista logo and login sound, will just hang there.

I think I'm going to stop here untill the next bios and corruption issues are fixed, for now it's back to 1333 @ 7-6-6-24 linked and synced.

Thanks all.
