    Think I posted in the wrong area and should have posted here first. If any Mods read this wil yu please delete my previos thread?

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.5 ghz
    Corsair TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF memory
    BFG GeForce 8800GTS (BFG88512GTSE)
    A pair of Seagate 640 GB (ST640323AS)
    Corsair TX750W power supply
    Lite-On 52X ATAPI/E-IDE DH53R2P-08
    Samsung 22X DVD +/- R SATA SH-S223!
    Also a RAID 10 array of 4 360 gbyte Hitachi's (not my boot partition)

    I built this system last November (2008). Its been rock solid running XP-Pro 32 bit, Win7 RC1 32bit and Win7 RC1 64 - its a tri-boot system.

    A few weeks ago I started to get BSOD's across all three OS's. Chased windows issues around for a while but finally booted memtest v4 and it showed the memory failed in certain locations.

    The memory was 4 gbyte of TWIN2X4096-8500C5D F.

    Returned the RAM under RMA and received a new set.

    Not sure but I think the revison was higher than what I RMA'd, its now 1.2.

    Installed the memory taking all due static precautions and then nothing worked. Zero, zip, nada. No post, nothing on the screen, absolutely nothing.

    I tried one stick at a time, no change. I removed all the memory and got a 10 beep post with the unit shutting down after that.

    I've removed all connections from the power supply except the MB and GPU.

    Still nothing.

    I reset the MB's CMOS both by jumper and by removing and reinstalling the CMOS battery. I reseated the GPU card. I tried another monitor.

    I then gave up, and went to Corsair for another RMA.

    In the meantime I put a single stick of Kingston 800Mhz RAM in there and can't kill it. Memtest runs forever, and prime95 ran until I stopped it after about 8 hours.

    I've now received and installed the second set of RMA'd Corsair memory and got exactly the same results - no video, no POST, no BIOS screen, nada.

    The system was never overclocked, everything left in auto, and the BIOS screen reported everything correctly from the SPD data - the timing was 5-5-5-15 and the voltage was 2.1v. That's from the original set I had there. Since I can't ever get a display with the new sets I can only guess its working. It does report the correct numbers for the 800mhz stick.

    Before I RMA the motherboard, anyone got any ideas? Or does it really sound like the mobo just doesn't like the Corsair anymore? I wish the Corsair versions hadn't changed, one more variable to the pot.

    Bios is still at F4.

    Does anyone at Gigabyte know if the new rev of Corsair memory is still comaptible with the old spec?



    All help welcome. Thanks.

    Might be a good idea to update BIOS.

    With the Kingston memory load optimized defaults, save reboot, set System Memory multiplier manually to 2.40B and Performance Enhance standard, save, then try one of the Corsair modules.
    See if it can get you started.

    sorry to all that have questions but i don't have an answer....

    if i need to post in a new thread how do i do so???



    my system specs:

    Case - cooler master RC-690Power Supply - Antec 500W modular
    Motherboard - GA-EP45-UD3P
    CPU - Q6600 @ 3.2GHz
    Memory - Kingston HyperX @ 800MHz 4-4-4-12 - KHX6400D2LLK2/4G (4GB dual channel)
    GPU - GTX 260 @ 756/1566/2332 with Voltage Tuner @1175
    HDD - 640GB Western Digital Caviar Black - WD6401AALS
    2 SATA Optical Drives....

    my system has been running completely stable since i overclocked it. i haven't done any stress testing on the cpu and ram but my games and temps have been rock solid, no blue screens or crashes of any kind until last night while playing Fallout3 the dreaded blue screen appeared for the first time since i built the sytem. i have noticed my cpu temps spiked as high as the mid 50s while gaming but never any higher. whenever i power my computer for the first time the fan is completely dead until i have to literally give it a push with my finger. speed fan records my CPU RPM @ 600-700RPM with my Zalman 9500 cooler. i guess my fan is deciding to take a dump. what do you guys think?? i get the blue screen because my CPU overheats and automatically shuts down but my temps are never over the mid 50s??? i'm guessing my fan probably stops temporarily and then back up again while gaiming.... planning on buying a replacement fan ASAP... and of course any help would be greatly appreciated.

    i will post my current BIOS settings later because i'm at work right now. Also, i haven't updated to the most current BIOS. which BIOS version do you guys suggest with my hardware/setup???

    thanks!
