Also, when I have 4 sticks of memory fitted the PC wont hardly switch on, it switches on for around 2 seconds then trips off again.

Have tried new sticks, swapping sticks around, leaving different slots open and its still the same. 3x Sticks of 4Gb DDR3 1600 work, 4x sticks dont.

Got fed up in the end, returned the M5A97 and swapped over for a Gigabyte board - no problems so far with memory, tripping out etc....

It's OK, just the designers put the power sockets for the fans in such STUPID inaccessible places as well as the SATA Ports

Hi,

Did you get this fixed? At the moment I am using a workaround with the ATI CCC to fix my random shutdowns.

There is a fix on this page http://www.wsgf.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=22189

Apparently there has been a problem with AMD Overdrive for awhile and multiple monitors where the 2d clock speeds aren't set high enough for running dual displays.

I set my 2d clockspeeds to 450/1400 and I haven't had a shutdown since.
