It's the mobo. ASUS is god awful. I had one, and it wouldn't even display anything. RMA'd, 3 weeks later it returns. Starts to show stuff, but now anything I try to install or download is "corrupted", and I get a ton of BSOD's and lockups. Never getting ASUS again.

P.S. I'm looking for some good reliable mobos to replce mine with. I would need a SLI, nforce 4, AMD x2 compatible one.

Depending on what mobo you have ASUS is still God just look at the benchmarks. If you don't want ASUS anymore go to an MSI board. Other than that your Gigabyte mobo is not that good. If you got it to work great. Best board I could say would be an MSI with SLI on the mobo. Try www.newegg.com to get motherboard like that.
3800x AMD, ASUS-E mobo, four 512 sticks of ddr400 (duel channels), Nvidia 7900gt OC, 80gig, 120gig, 200gig, 320gig, 400gig WDs, and a Soprano case
