I just flashed to the F6 BIOS, and for some reason, when I enable the "top performance" feature, windows won't boot properly. It'll show the boot screen, but then before entering windows, it'll reboot. Anyone know of this problem?

Yes. Your ram isn't good enough for the aggressive ram settings.

Try a less aggressive option like optimized instead of top performance. You can then adjust the timings that work best with your ram.

Wait a sec... top performance worked before I flashed to the F6 bios. Does this one have more aggressive timings?

How do you adjust the timing? I looked around in the bios and couldn't find it...

Sometimes a BIOS update can have odd effects.

I am not sure where it is. You could try Frequency/Voltage Control.

I read somewhere that the top performance setting had very aggressive ram timings and they recommended less aggressive timings for stability.

Edit: after further investigation I discovered that the adjustments are accessed using CTRL F1 in the BIOS. These may be available after Top Performance is enabled.
