    So i spoke with nationapn and he has his GM965 working and he is using kingston KVR667D2N5 RAM and this RAM has the exactly the same specifications and timing as the RAM i've tried so i'm thinking that these industrial motherboards are hit and miss. I don't think they are designed as well as the mainstream motherboards. I'm going to RMA the board and keep you all posted.

    hmmm... well my ram gets here today so i'll check it out. i really hope it works cause i have a feeling i'm going to have some issues (read: screwed) when it comes to return/warranty.

    I would even say screw the GM965 board and use the 945 Fuzzy board. I wanted to use a mini pci express wifi card but it just doesn't seem worth it at this point. I may end up asking MSI to give me the 945GM2 Fuzzy board. I think that takes the same socket p processor

    i was actually thinking that yesterday but i think i'll stick with the gm965 until i get it to work. the 945 is socket m. good news is i just spoke to logic supply and i can warranty the board through msi.

    Yea thats what i'm doing now. Of course you have to pay for return shipping but i guess thats nothing compared to buying a new board.

    yeah i'm not too worried about it. even after i pay shipping i will still have saved a couple bucks and end up with a new board.

    i'm really still hoping that it works tonight, but realisticly... i'm pretty sure the reason it was returned was because the first owner couldn't get it to work either. it has obviously had a cpu and cooler installed on it before.

    *edit - but i will lose my integrated cf adapter. booo...

    Send it back without the adapter... I assume they don't know which ones had it and which ones didn't

    Oh wow i actually didn't know it was integrated into the board. I didn't think the RAM was going to work but this also leads me to believe that i actually got two bad motherboards which is strange. I might go for a refund and start dealing with newegg on the jetway board because this paying for the RMA is crazy. That means my processor would need to be changed.. ahhhh well at least we know its just a huge number of bad motherboards
