    I'm sure you get loads of grief but i'm also sure that I speak for most in saying that we appreciate what you do

    Thanks and I look forward to a solution.

    Nothing yet 14 days later.

    Running my memory at +0.1 now gives me 2.02vdimm not 1.9 as it should. Running +0.2 gives 2.27vdimm when it should be 2.0v. Bit awkward when your RAM is rated at 2.1v.

    No BIOS updates or betas either are Gigabyte losing interest in this board as the gimmick of it being the 'latest' has gone to the P38 boards.

    Janus sent me this email with Gigabyte's response to the memory voltage issue. I wanted to keep everybody in the loop. It still doesn't seem correct to me. I have responded with more questions below.



    The problem is Everest will freeze ITE8718 H/W monitor.
    That means you will never see DDR voltage turns to other value once you run Everest.
    For example, before you raise DDR voltage, the healthy status is 1.9V or 1.8V.
    And then you raise DDR voltage to 2.1V and also see it changes in healthy status.
    After that, you run Everest in WinXP and go back to BIOS setup to change the setting to 1.9V or 1.8V.
    You will see the healthy status will always show 2.24V(or 2.1V) even the actual voltage is 1.9V.

    The problem you shown is just about precision in H/W monitor.



    Janus,

    Thank you for following up on this problem. The answer your RD gave today is the same answer they gave one month ago. However I still believe the problem has not be solved or fully answered. Please have your RD dept address the following issues directly.


    1) Is your RD dept saying Everest is the problem? The problem occurs with other memory voltage reading software. Speedfan and PC Wizard have the exact same memory voltage readings. Why does every software memory reading program have the same readings?

    2) People have measured the same memory voltages directly from the board. This can not be a software issue. Please have your RD dept measure directly from the board.

    Please look at this link.

    3) As to your following statement:

    “After that, you run Everest in WinXP and go back to BIOS setup to change the setting to 1.9V or 1.8V.
    You will see the healthy status will always show 2.24V(or 2.1V) even the actual voltage is 1.9V.”


    3a) There are no voltage readings in PC HEALTH. Just “pass” and ‘fail”. What bios are they using? Am I missing something?

    3b) To get to the BIOS-> PC Health, you need to reboot the computer. Wouldn’t this clear the freeze up of the ITE8718 H/W monitor allowing it to display the correct settings thus negating your RD dept answer?

    4) You can’t ignore the fact that using the “adjusted” settings that I have read from the board has eliminated some of the problems people are having with their memory.



    Thank you

    Dear Mrfatboy

    PC health might be my mistakes; I thought your speed fan is mean PC health.

    So I told our RD its show 2.24v in PC health.

    BTW, can you help me something?

    uninstall Everest, and try if other software still show incorrect ?

    It still reports the incorrect memory voltages with Everest uninstalled.

    Same here aswell with everest uninstalled. Speedfan still reports the voltage at 2.02v when its set to 1.9v in the BIOS. Running Vista x64 not Windows XP by the way.

    i cannot get my memory to run stable at 2.1V settings if I set it to +0.2 its less that 2.1 and if I set it to +0.3 it overvolts (2.24)- causing instability problems!!

    what's your memory reading at +.2? I get 2.13 volts which should be fine for you. You might want to pickup some Crucial 800ddr2 balistix for $45 (2x 1gb). It probably will be easier then dealing with Gigabyte. You should see what I am going thru with them (GGTS) now. It's absolutely ridiculous. I am going to give them one more shot and then I going to post the trouble ticket so everybody can see what I am dealing with :)
