So I bought another Gigabyte mobo

Recommended Posts

You guessed it.....no post, no nada, no zip.......

 

Attempting POST with 1 stick RAM in Slot 1, one vid card.....basically this > http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?showtopic=115575

 

Specs are:

Gigabyte GA-X58-UD3R

i7920

2Gb DDR3 2000

9800GTX+

water

 

Gonna try my DDR3 1600 see if it boots with that.....

 

Ideas and suggestions please.....

Probably the operator Terry. :P

 

You may be correct Intra.......

@ terry, not to sure, I tried thr DDR3 1600 with 1 stick and it took right off. Sitting here running on the 3 sticks of DDR3 2000 and installing Windows.

probably just needed a bit more time and a few false boots to get the 2000 memory set so it would complete a boot. ;-)

 

Probably the operator Terry. tongue.gif

guaranteed if it was me.. :rofl2:

Well, I guess I better send you a PM.

By the time you get that thing running, you have forgotten the settings.

 

Be a lot cheaper then a phone call.

But all in all, it ain't that bad listening to that Kansas twang. :rofl2:

had a few gigabyte boards, all worked fine. Abit was the bestest of them all though.

 

psu still holding up on you with clean rails?

 

bios updated for it?

 

never ran tri channel before, but i had one board that wouldn't stay stable on dual channel unless i got ram that was on the "compatability chart" lmao

Hey wd....yup!, PSU is strong, and just updated to latest BIOS...Am about to think that I do have a memory problem......but more likely just "user error".

I see you there Paul, this is that Mushkin Redline DDR3 2000 #998750 seems to run fine at DDR3 1600 speeds....

I've had very good luck with mushkin memory. If they tell you it will run at 2000 it certainly should, In fact better. I had to rma with them once, sent in an email and got a response in 10 minutes. No problems, best service I've had with anyone.

 

I don't know your board at all, makes it tough to give you advise. Took a while to get used to this evga board. Lots of different voltages and settings. If you think you've tried everything, I would suggest emailing mushkin.

Yea totally agree with Paul, Mushkin makes quality RAM and has great support.

 

Mmm... C_B, it's your third board, it is making me doubt that something in the case could be shorting out, or a backplate or something must be shorting.. unless you're using the boards as military grade, it dies on you :P lol..

i tried helping him but the problem is when we got a steady overclock at 4ghz (keeping the temps and vcore not to high, it will be folding 24/7)and the memory running at 1600 as soon as we upped the uncore and multi to run at it's rated speed 2000 it stopped being stable when running prime95 so i'm assuming maybe the extra uncore speed and not the ram itself is causing the problem but the v are all on auto except for vcore, and because of my bad memory i'm just not sure what is the best/correct voltage to raise to get the stability back.. i really didn't want to just keep throwing vcore at it when i'm positive there's a better v to alter that will get it stable without sending the temps to high. :tup:

 

caintry can your post that template thing so they can see what the voltage options are named for your bios. tried getting the link from trp but it seems to be down. ;)

here are screen shots of my volt settings for a fairly stable overclock @ 4.2 and 4.6 gig ...

 

 

4.2G

4.6G

As you can see, I had to raise cpu vtt, qpi pll and dimm volts along with cpu voltage. Every board is different as well the cpu, so these values will not work with caintry's. In fact mine is an evga and his is a gigabyte. Just wanted to show which voltages I had to raise, and which ones I could leave at auto. Also the dimm voltage is above the recommended volts per Intel.

Thanks guys! Terry, it ran all day until last night I heard it reboot (Windows ding-a-ling)), so I went into BIOS and set it back to 19 x 200 for 3.8Ghz and it's ran fine ever since. RAM is still @ 1600 speed though. I'll shut it down tomorrow and copy down those settings in that template for y'all.

 

BTW, TRP is not working for me either, getting a "Fatal crash" error.....

If you're looking to run at DDR3 2000 MHz you'll need about 1.415V for your QPI/VTT (dependant on the CPU and RAM) for stability otherwise it's will bluescreen or been rebooting.

Thanks Intra(Snake), I'll look into it.......

Well, went all the way to 1.44v on the QPI/VTT with RAM @ 2000Mhz, UNCORE @ x20(4000Mhz) and it wanted to but just wouldn't do it.....

 

Anymore ideas???

try just 1 stick at a time caintry to see if there's a bad stick that's holding you back at the 2000 speeds.

 

:b33r:

 

they are in the right slots, yes? :lol:

Went through that before, yes the sticks are in the proper slots. I made sure to consult the manual since this board only has 4 slots, using slots 1, 2, 4. I'll try the one stick at a time thing.......
