    I don't know!
    Could this be to change the memory voltage increments? When you set it to manual and select one does it change the DDR2 voltage control increments?
    It's ok...

    I 'll contact Gigabyte Online Tech Support and get back with their answer here.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Is the above physical arrangment OK?
    Yes It's ok as long as they are as SATA-IDE, but not SATA-RAID
    If I want to create RAID sometime in the future, should I pre-install (F6) the drivers before XP now with the RAID option selected in the BIOS "SATA RAID/AHCI Mode" setting, or doesn't it make a difference?

    It depends on what you want? You have 2 controllers (Intel ICH10R) and (Intel ICH10).
    You cannot use the same controller to IDE and RAID. example if I wanted to install 4 SATA IDE devices I would use the yellow connectors but then I would only have 2 for RAID the purple connectors. If I wanted 4 SATA RAID devices. I would then use the yellow ones for RAID. Then I would only have 2 SATA for IDE. In any case you must go into your bios or CMOS setup, and set it up as (SATA legacy IDE) or (SATA-RAID) Which controller you use for which. "example" page-52 of the manual.

    Beginners Guides: Installing RAID on a Desktop PC - PCSTATS.com

    If it were me with Windows I would set them all to IDE and put HD's on each controller and software RAID This way you have the best solution for sata dvd's and adding data from other HD's
    Windows Software RAID Guide

    The board below has 2 seperate controllers.
    GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Specification - GA-EP45-UD3R (rev. 1.0)

    GSATA2_0/1 (SATA 3Gb/s Connectors, Controlled by GIGABYTE SATA2, Purple)
    The SATA connectors conform to SATA 3Gb/s standard and are compatible with SATA 1.5Gb/s
    standard. Each SATA connector supports a single SATA device. The GIGABYTE SATA2 controller
    supports RAID 0 and RAID 1. Refer to Chapter 5, "Configuring SATA Hard Drive(s)," for instructions
    on configuring a RAID array.------->

    Thanks very much for your reply.

    It depends on what you want?
    I want:

    (a) The SATA drives to operate in IDE mode or AHCI mode but not RAID.

    (b) To not have to reinstall the OS if I choose to configure the RAID at some time in the future.

    So my question is: what option should I select in the BIOS "SATA RAID/AHCI Mode" setting when I pre-install the drivers?

    If it were me with Windows I would set them all to IDE
    If I did that, I couldn't use the eSATA ports to hot swap drives.

    I appreciate all the links and have taken a look at them but I'm not sure that they answer my question.

    You would have to reinstall the OS if you ever wanted to use RAID, you can't just install the driver and not create a RAID Array now.

    So for now, you can either set IDE or AHCI. IDE would not need any preinstall drivers, and AHCI would only need them if you are using XP. Vista will install it's own AHCI Driver

    Since you do want to use eSATA you can install the OS Drive on the Intel ports anyway you like, then set the Gigabyte ports to AHCI and within the OS install the Gigabyte RAID/AHCI Driver-program and you would be good to go.

    Integrated Peripherals

    Intel Controller (Yellow Ports)
    SATA RAID/AHCI Mode (Intel ICH10R Southbridge) .............Disabled (IDE) Or AHCI
    SATA Port0-3 Native Mode ................................... Enabled (or Disabled, both will work)

    Gigabyte/J.Micron Controller (Purple Ports)
    Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ............. Enabled
    Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ........... AHCI

    Thanks - that clears up a few uncertainties that I had.
    .

    ...set the Gigabyte ports to AHCI...
    If I do this, will I still be able to use my IDE optical drive connected to the green IDE connector?

    Yes, the IDE Connector will always function as IDE.

    Let us know if you need anymore help with this

    Default Issue with EP45-UD3P

    hi, long time watcher, first time poster.

    my ga-ep45-ud3p (bios f4->f7->f9 none work) wont boot my g. skill pc6400 2x2gb (cl5d-4gbpq) ram set in slot 1&3. The computer jsut starts running for ~5 sec and then restarts. It never even posts. if i place the ram is slots 2&4 the computer turns on but never restarts or posts.

    if i put the ram in slot 1&2 (single channel) i can boot straight into windows. Also either chip will boot in slot one by itself.


    i have tried to increase the ram voltage to 1.8->1.9->2.0->2.1v. I have also dropped the timings to 6-6-6-18, at 667

    I recently tried someone elses RAM with the same results

    it must be the board, right? is there something in the bios im missing or was this board DOA?

    Bios Settings - Everything on default auto except:
    Host Freq: 266
    PCI E: 100
    System Memory Multipler: 2.0B (533mhz)
    Timings: 5-5-5-15 trfc 52
    VCore: 1.3v
    MCH Core:1.3v
    DRAM Voltage: 1.9v

    Did you try less MCH? 1.3V is alot really, try 1.05 first (*Less than stock) then try 1.20-1.24

    And if you are using 266 FSB you may have better luck using the "A" Multipliers as that is what FSB they are designed to use. So try 3.00A with 1.05 MCH First, then 1.20-1.24, also try tRFC to 58.

    Be sure your tRD (Static tRead Value) is manually set to 7-8 for now as well
