    It will be interesting to see what OcUK do if updating the BIOS doesn't fix Zoom7000's issue. Knowing what OcUK are like, I really doubt they will do a straight swap.

    Well, the trouble is, both systems were working fine. I then had to dismantle both systems to get the motherboards swapped out by Asus due to the SandyBridge flaw. So, both boards are now the B3 revision boards which weren't supplied by OcUK. The warranty is unaffected, but I'd rather sort out the issue if it can be sorted with something like a BIOS update rather than having to RMA or otherwise. The trouble is, I can't yet pinpoint exactly what's causing the issue. I'd like to get a confirmed diagnosis as to which part is actually fault (If faulty!) before returning the board, only to find a new board causes the same issue because something else is faulty!

    Have you tried it with 1 stick of memory in only, that fixed the stability problems on the dodgy motherboard i had.

    Right, I think I've finally managed to solve this! The Intel® Rapid Storage Technology was the driver causing all the issues. Annoyingly, the driver on Asus' own website is the problematic driver. The version on Asus' site is 10.5.0.1026. This driver kept giving BSOD and screwing up my entire Windows installation to the point where it wouldn't boot in to Windows any more. I decided to check the Intel website and found a version 10.6.0.1022. This driver installed fine and so did all the other drivers and the system has been running well for the last few days.

    So, all the problems I had were basically because Asus have got crappy drivers on their own website! I updated the BIOS anyway and thanks to everyone else for their help here!

    Good to hear that you got it going and worrying to hear that Intel's shocking driver devs have been let loose outside their networking department.
