The IS7 can't deal with the SPD settings on Corsair PC3200 XMS (if that's what you're using, it's in your sig). Try setting the timing at 2-4-4-8 and see how it goes. Also, like most P4 mobos, the IS7 undervolts the core so you might bump it up. But see if playing with the DDR timings helps.

There's also a beta BIOS available that might solve your problem.

i finally got it to work, all i did was slow down the ram timings. it did the trick, you can crank them back up after you install, its just really picky during the install.
