hmmm

well, those sticks are the one with the High heatsink, so try for a while with 1.65v or 1.67

After everything we have tried it seemed to have gotten worse. I am unable to get to the first part of the install. It either hangs or gives a blue screen right after Starting Windows.  After setting voltage higher and changing TRFC to 160 still ahveing problems

lose the timings

use 9-11-9- 27-34 2T - 6-12-6-6

TRFC 160

and turn down the voltage to 1.55v


CPU-NB VID control at 1.24v

Currently this is how my system is setup.
Video card PCI-E 16_0
HDD SATA3_0  Set to AHCI
CD Drive GSATA2_6 set as IDE
Ram in DDR3_0
CPU



TRy changing the AHCI setting. Usually you only use that for a SSD.

Thanks Christoph.
I will try these settings when I get home. Sorry for the slow reply, was getting a little frustrated with it and decided to not look at it for a bit.
I am trying with an OEM Win 7 32-bit CD rom atm since that is what worked previously.

I am pretty sure this is how I am setup. I am not using a SSD at the moment. I am using a normal HDD have tried both AHCI and IDE when trying to install

Off the wall but it has worked for me. Remove all but essential hardware.  Flash to F3 bios. Load fail-safe defaults. If you can get a linux live cd boot from that, forget windows for now. If that boots and is stable the chances are that the problem is between your hardware and windows. Try and install windows. If you are successful add the rest of your hardware, one item at a time. If all is well reflash bios to F6.

As background I had a right nightmare with the same board. I was using crucial ballistix ram (1600), but slowed to 1333 and tighter timings. I had everything from no post, continuous beeping on startup,bluies, and continuous restarts. I was all for rma'ing the board. After visiting a few sites I found that the concensus was that the F3 bios was the most stable so I followed the above actions and my box now is fine. (This is something I will regret), but I have a stable box and install of win7 64-bit.

Always handy to have a linux live cd it can get you out of all sorts of problems with windows problems.  ;)

Decided to try using Knoppix.  First time it booted failed on [Sound, Video, Input] said Killed underneath it.  Second time a service failed but booted into knoppix anyway. 3rd time no problems at all so I messed around in there, tried using office some games what ever most stuff crashed alittle while after using them.

that HDD is new?

try checking it for bad sectors, you can use the Hiren's boot cd for that, or use the tool the manufacturer provide

I agree with Niffler that a Live Linux cd can sometimes be a very good indication of how to separate a Hardware failure or a software related failure..In fact i wrote a small post dedicated to it..http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,4332.0.html
In your case, the fact that Knoppix also had stability/install problems indicated some unknown hardware/BIOS problem..The advice you previously got about starting over and run stability tests  could help you determine your problem..Even memtest as good as it is does not always find  an elusive fault with memory modules..They are very tricky and touchy..The fact of charging up a small silicone capacitor and then recharging it when required is problematic in itself..That is why memory modules are so critical and cause so many problems..
Unfortunately, they are so woven into system stability that the memory controller(CPU) the BIOS, the mother board, and even the  power supply all have an effect on system stability..They all have to work together in order to get a stable system...
Also in this case that if Knoppix was unstable indicates to me that you can leave your HD out for the time being because Knoppix works just from memory.. Sometimes hardware device failures months later (in your case) may have been damaged by overheating some critical part.. That is why I would start over with the basics as suggested by others and run all tests as you would with a new build ..
I wish there was a" Magic Bullet " but I do not see it..
Good luck,
jolphil

As jolphil has stated the fact that you can't run Knoppix in a stable manner would "seem" to rule out the H/D. IMHO you have got a hardware problem. The only resort left is to try and isolate what it is. This can be difficult if you haven't got other hardware to swap out. It could be the CPU, Mobo or ram. As you have already changed the ram I would be inclined to go for the mobo. You stated that it was working, nothing to say that something hasn't gone wrong, unfortunately it does happen. The only other thing I would try, possibly a long shot, is to put your optical drive/s on the S3_4 & S3_5 ports and make sure they are in IDE mode. Other than that it looks like a RMA. Good Luck and however it turns out please let us know the result.

Regards :(

Wanna say thanks to everyone that tried to help.  RMA'd the Processor AMD said it passed and sent me a new processor. Anyway, got the processor put it in and installed and has been stable for approx  12 hours.  So hopefully that is the end of this problem =)
