    Default EP35C-DS3R F4a Freezes every time

    Hi, (sorry for poor lang.)

    Just build an system, but its freeze/crashes every time or in minute or 2.
    It was a F3 bios it was crashing and hang every time.
    I manged to update the bios to F4a it still hangs and crashes.

    Some time by the first startup.
    Some times in Winxp32 (pro)

    Wy? is this not stable system ?

    I did not overclocking or mess whith bios.

    I put every part in right order in places.

    Antec case - antec 500W
    Ga-EP35C-DS3R MOTHB.
    DuoCore 2 E8400
    2x2GB Corsair ddr3 CM3X2048-1333C9DHX
    Sapphire HD3850 passive cooling no fan
    Cpu cooling is a huge Coolermaster passive no fan

    I have put now my old Cpu E6850 and DDR2 4GB in it, it still hangs/crash but not so quick.
    I hope you can solve my problemm.

    I was the full day bussy on it.

    Well for starters you should stick to a NON beta BIOS. SO either F2 or F3 would be better, as they both support your CPU

    2x2GB needs some BIOS changes for sure so that may be your issue. Can you please put one stick of ram in slot one and see if it is ok that way. If it is, then I would first Memtest86+ each stick of ram by itself to be sure you do not have a dead stick. >>>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Then if both sticks are ok, please post for me your settings from the MIT section of the BIOS and I will post back some suggested ones for you. For sure you will need to manually set the ram voltage, and add some MCH voltage. You will likely also want to manually set some timings, and put Performance Enhance on Standard.

    Similar Changes would be needed as well for 2x2GB of DDR2

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [8]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [450]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time________________ ?
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ ?
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______?
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ ?
    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ ?
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ ?
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ ?
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ ?
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ ?
    Static tRead Value_______________ 1-31
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ 1-31

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V]
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.25]

    Il do it, but it hangs on the beginning post.
    I can't get get in the bios.

    It let go on 1 at 15 times restart/reset.

    And if im in bios it hangs there in most times.

    Im returning to the store i think.

    Its new so they have to take it.

    Try getting in there with ONLY ONE stick of ram in slot one. Then I will give you some settings back. You enter them and shut down, then put in the second stick and reboot. Should be better after that. You need to manually set some voltages, RAM and MCH, for 2x2GB for sure.
