Thread: P35-DS3P / Q6600 Hates USB

    Default P35-DS3P / Q6600 Hates USB

    New build - spent 4 days on it... had it what I thought was done until I started adding usb devices - once I add more than 1 it will hang at the Testing Memory prompt - usually getting to "Testin " - then pause for 4-5 seconds and either recycle/reboot or go into vista which blows up and reboots the machine.

    Here are the components:

    GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3P Rev 2.0 LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Ultra Durable 2, Ultra Cooling Intel Motherboard - Retail

    XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT XXX 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor Model BX80562Q6600 - Retail

    Rosewill RX850-S-B ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91 850W Power Supply - Retail

    (2) Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT12864AA1065 - Retail

    The memory populates all 4 slots for 4gb.

    I have tried every combo of bios settings (using F8) I can think of - does not matter - once those usb devices are plugged in it is done. Could it be the MB, memory or PSU? Which would you guess?

    Sometimes (keyword here - I can get it into Vista (at stock, 3G and 3.2 even) and plug in the USB devices - all work fine... until it reboots.

    I have bumped all voltages across the board. Any thoughts please? Even without any usb devices plugged in it still is flaky - even with mem running at 800 instead of 1066.

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    Try with only 2x1Gb memory,your spec
    - Module Size: 4GB kit (1GBx4)
    - Package: 240-pin DIMM
    - Feature: DDR2 PC2-8500
    - Speed: DDR2-1066
    - Voltage: 2.2V
    - Memory Timings: CL=5 (5-5-5-15-2T)
    It's mean you must run 1066 Hz and +0.4V in bios
    For 800 Hz must set SPD 4-4-4-12(2T)
