      I discovered something interesting this weekend while trying track down multiple issues with my DP45SG. Those of you still will this motherboard if you wouldn't mind confirming I would be grateful. Intel support I have not filed an official complaint on this particular issue yet.

       

      1. Clear CMOS (remove battery for 30 minutes)

      2. Install Patriot RAM above.

      3. no need to install the TV tuner cards so just install the video card.

      4. Bios jumper set to configure mode

      5. Plug in power supply

      6. Warning the settings have been lost answer Y to enter bios and set time etc.

      7. Press F9, press ENTER, press F10, Press ENTER

      8. Warning that I need turn off computer and change jumper

      9. Turn off computer and remove AC power cord wait for green light to go out

      10. Move jumper to normal bios mode

      11. Plug in AC power cord

      12. Turn on computer and wait for Intel splash

      13. Wait to see F2 dialog and start spamming F2 key for bios configuration

      14. Bios configuration screen loads

      15. Press F9, press ENTER, press F10, Press ENTER

      16. computer shuts down and turns off

      17. computer automatically turns back on

      18. see Intel splash

      19. Wait to see F2 dialog and start spamming F2 key for bios configuration

      20. Bios configuration screen loads

      21. configure SATA for ACHI mode

      22. F10 save and exit

      23. see Intel splash

      24. let windows 7 64bit enterprise load

      25. Properties on c: drive

      26. Tools tab

      27. Check now

      28. schedule chkdsk next boot

      29. Restart computer with windows start menu

      30. see Intel splash

      31. see windows start load

      32. see warning about chkdsk press any key to STOP it... start spamming any keys but countdown continues and does chkdsk

      33. computer reboots after chkdsk
      34. windows loads
      35. shutdown windows

      Well that's not right!

      Go back to step 12 and start over

      do step 21, but add the following

      Memory configuration manual instead of automatic. change nothing else in the memory settings

      continue to step 22

      same problem happens at step 32

       

      Well it fails again that is odd...

      Go back to step 12 and start over

      do step 21, but add the following

      Memory configuration manual instead of automatic. change from 1333 to 1066. change nothing else in the memory settings

      continue to step 22

      at step 32 I can cancel the schedule chkdsk

      That's more like it, but I am still not happy.

       

      Well maybe its the ram NOT LIKELY!

      Back to step 1

      At step 2 substitute the other Kingston ram

      problem at step 32 happens!

       

      Well crap other people say this ram works better than the patriot for automatic timings. Dang it!

      Go back to step 12 and start over

      do step 21, but add the following

      Memory configuration manual instead of automatic. change nothing else in the memory settings

      continue to step 22

      same problem happens at step 32


      Well it fails again this is not looking good

      Go back to step 12 and start over

      do step 21, but add the following

      Memory configuration manual instead of automatic. change from 1333 to 1066. change nothing else in the memory settings

      continue to step 22

      at step 32 I can cancel the schedule chkdsk

       

      Oh man both sets of ram have the same behavior. This is not good at all. There is defiantly some strange issue with 1333 DDR3 ram it seems to me.

       

      I put the patriot ram back in and put ram timings to manual - 1066.

      I was using bios rev 0121 during these procedures.

       

      Can anybody else reproduce this?
