so i still get some odd problems i've sort of resolved this issue but my computer still acts funny sometimes and bsod's memory managment or some other memory related issue.
what i've done since.
i purchased 8gb kit of ddr3 corsair vengance, this i tested on a seperate machine prior to use, using anti static environment i placed it into my motherboard and so far so good for the error code 27, however i just get other memory faults now.
i tested my old ram and it came up clean no faults, 23 passes per module.
i changed my power supply to a 850w cooler master silent pro gold.
i purchased a new graphics card.
i reinstalled windows 7 pro 64, i wasn't leaving anything to chance.
however i still continue to get odd bsod reports.
i'm at my wits end over this as i should not be having these stability issues, i don't overclock anything so i can count that out and i haven't oc'd my computer since i built it as there was no need.
i reinstalled to a brand new hdd hoping that would help as i figured why not but that didn't help either.
i am a proffesional system builder as well testing and builds are a normal daily routine for me, so any suggestions i am more than willing to try.
my issue seems to be with the memory but having changed it out 4 times now and the memory being tested seperatly to the system and coming up with no faults i can only assume it's either the cpu i7-2600 or the motherboard.
being only 6 months old i can always RMA the motherboard as it is unstable but i was hoping there was a solution i could use without having to send it away.

If you're a "professional system builder" you should know that if you've tested and verified the DIMMs are ok elsewhere, should of the memory controller on the processor playing up you just need to RMA that board.
There isn't a solution for everything, sometimes things just fail.
For this kind of behavior, what we can recommend you is to try removing the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery#datetime
Test the system out of the chassis, minimal configuration please. (Motherboard, processor, power supply and memory)
Can you test the system using another power supply or processor just for testing purposes?
Finally, make sure you have the latest BIOS version installed on your system.
If the behavior continues and if the motherboard is still under warranty please get in touch with our Warranty Department so they can help you to replace the unit: http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport
Akarsh, could you please provide me your system configuration?
AA number and Serial number of the motherboard:
Memory manufacturer and part number:
Wattage and model of the power supply installed:
Model number of the PCI-e devices installed:
Current BIOS version of your motherboard:
I won this board at work in a drawing this week and got around to putting the system together today. As soon as I try to power on with ram in slots 1 and 2 (blue slots) I get error 27. If I take the stick out of slot 2 I can get into the BIOS but thats it. I tried with two different sets of dual channel ram and both have the same issue. System setup is:
Coolermaster HAF 922 case
Samsun Pro series 840 128gb ssd in sata 0
1B toshiba 7200 rpm hd in sata 1
8GB Cruicial Balistics BLS2KIT4G3D1609DS1S00 ( their site says its 100% compatible http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=38EDF703A5CA7304 )
Nvidia Geforce Gtx 275 x2 ( also tried removing 1 )
BFG 650w psu
other set of ram I tried is Kingston KVR13333DS8N9 2GBx2
I also flashed the BIOS to the latest that is available.
Like I said I flashed to the latest bios available on your website. BGP6710J.86A ver 2209 and the issue did not go away. After googlinng the board and reviews on newegg I see that this board is just junk and almost everyone who has tried it had the same issue. If this board was not free I would of been very upset so I went and purchased something that actually works. Very sad that Intel can't even get their own hardware to a good quality.
