    Hello there everyone, recently I bought a Phenon x6 1055t, a M4A78T-E and a 4gb DDr3 1333mhz corsair xms3 memory. I installed them with my old xfx 9800GT, 550w Corsair power supply and LG DVD IDE driver, plus my 2 SATA HDD (1 samsumg 1tb and 1 Western Digital 160gb).
    After much trouble I managed to get the system stable, I was having constant BSOD due to voltagem problems (it was accusing Memory_Management), using windows driver verifier I found out a problem with the ACPI driver, I updated it and the BSOD went away. I managed to update the BIOS and instaled ASUS CPU management tools, but now my system is very slow on certain aspects, mainly installing/unistalling and moving files. It took me more than 1 hour to get Maya installed, on my old system (a M2n-e SLI and an Athlon x2 5200+) it would take 15 minutes top. Running programs is also slower, they take longer to load. Can it be HDD problems? Or incompatibilities between the MB and the CPU/Memory?

    Did you install the chipset drivers ?

    Check you have set the correct voltage for that Ram in the Bios.

    I have the same Mboard btw.

    Thanks! Trying to update the chipset actually led me to the solution, the windows driver verifier was still on and was blocking my attempts to update the chipset so I disabled the verifier and now my system is fast as usual =) I was also able to update the chipset and maya is now working like a charm. Thank you again!
