I've assembled a lot of PC's in the past 30 years, for myself and for others. I've never experienced a single glitch, as everything has always gone perfectly smoothly.
It's probably the RAM, everything else is cookie-cutter. Motherboards come with a lot of optimizations these days in the areas of CPU, GPU, and RAM. Assuming you're supplying enough power to all the parts or you're not overheating... Here's what you need to do:
  • Go get a BIOS update on a USB stick from another computer. Update your BIOS to fix any bugs, etc. since the motherboard was released.
  • Then go into your BIOS and disable ALL optimizations - especially for your RAM.
  • Now, install windows. Go through the Windows update process, etc.
  • Then and only then, turn back on those optimizations one-by-one to see if you still have a problem.

ASUS sucks now. They used to be awesome. Times change.
