2 out of 5 eggs something just isn't right 09/18/2012

This review is from: ASUS KCMA-D8 ATX Server Motherboard Dual Socket C32 AMD SR5670 DDR3 1333/1066/800

Pros:

nice dual socket mobo with lots of cool things to play with.

Cons:

from the start, one of my ram slots would not start, dimm_C2. It would boot to an error saying this slot has not passed ram checks, from here i can either boot with 3 sticks or go into settings. I moved all my sticks around to every configuration, but still dimm c2 would not work.. I thought it was one of my cpus, replaced and still have problem. Updated bios, no change. The bios in system information says 12gb ram, but when I boot into windows it says 16gb (12 usable) weird? gentoo detects 12gb.

Also, another con is that my mobo will not save any settings. For example, I have a pci sata 3 card. If I set the mobo to boot from that, the next time I boot, it will boot from my sata 2 harddrive. I have to manually go into bios every time I reboot.

Other Thoughts:

buying non-popular boards makes it hard for any forum or online support because there is a small community.... aka there is almost nothing online about this board, even after a year that I've had this.

system:
2x 4180 opteron
16gb GSkill ripjaws
gtx 460
sata 3 ssd

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Depending on if you use one CPU, DIMM_C2 is not used. If you use two CPU's and have 4 DIMMS, populate in slots A2, B2, C2, and D2 (2 DIMMS for each CPU). Can you tell me what memory you used? Please specify part no.

You should be able to set boot order via Boot > Boot Device Prioirty > PCI SATA 3 card as the 1st Boot Device. Do you have other settings in BIOS changed such as system clock but are lost after a reset?

My email is cl-benson@asus.com. Please reference #C1037-4590 when replying.

Thank you.

Regards,
Benson
