Yep. I demonstrated this on my RIIIE. It happens when the board reaches its QPI limits:

funny you can still validate lol, i can't believe you thought i hit 276 lol.

I hear that the bug is a bug yes, but its for real i actually hit 276blck for a few milliseconds and then done. But its not something i will submit as i feel it is partly cheating. I have seen this happen on other non GB X58 boards in other threads, make you question some of these insane high blcks even with minor testing. Anyways i feel as though this board is built for gulftown much more than bloomfield.

i like the plastic pushpins, easier to keep track of, my contact to MSOFETs were fine.
