    Mother Board set up experts (X58B-A20

    Hello,

    I just got a high end i7 pc from Craigslist. I had to put the components together. I want to make sure I did all of it right. It is a ECS X58B-A2 Black Series board with 6gb of high end ram Patriot 6gb (3x2gb) PC3-12800 1600MHZ. To get to the set up bios screen you hit delete key when starting. Not sure what to set up here but all seamed to be working fine. When I do a restart I see the mother board screen first and then a black screen for a mila second that says detecting drive: no drives detected....Then reboots fine. Is this normal? Also what to make sure I have me ram set for max use.

    Got to identify/know what frequency the RAM is and the timings, though timing not neccessary to set manually, BIOS can do set RAM frequency and timings automatically. Only need to change if frequency or timings are wrong.
