I will turn it on, it will reboot without bringing up bios screen, auto reboot will freeze on bios screen then auto third reboot will be fine, runs for hours under cod4 high graphics. So just wondering if you have any tips where i should be adjusting things, i will use the list u orginaly gave me and just edit a few minor inconsistencies on my end. :) Your help is appreciated :)

    ok i just edited it, just wondering why are there two differnt values?

    What you see on the left is What the BIOS has used previously when in Auto at sometime or another.

    Are you manually setting your Vcore? If so, dont if you are not overclocking

    Try this >>>>

    CPU Vcore….……….........................: Auto

    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core…………….....1.100V...........: << 1.26-1.3

    That memory may be fine, but may not be compatible with the board. Is this 2x2GB or 2x1GB? I would suggest you buy you some ram, good 2x2GB can purchased for around $40 these days and 2x1 even cheaper. OEM Ram is meant for OEM Machines, not a quality board such as this

    See if you can set this after you change the voltages, as it is likely a huge issue.

    DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance...................: [Standard] Once you set your voltages and static Tread you should be fine changing this. This likely raises your static tread above what it is showing now is why you can use it. And in standard it likely uses the 3 which would of course not boot

    (G)MCH Frequency Latch...............: [Auto]
    System Memory Multiplier ..............: AUTO or 4.00A (Same thing)
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ..............: 800 800
    DRAM Timing Selectable ................: [Manual]

    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time........................ 5 auto
    tRCD ......................................... 5 auto
    tRP'........................................... 5 auto
    tRAS.......................................... 18 auto

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD........................................... 3 auto
    tWTR.......................................... 3 auto
    tWR............................................ 6 auto
    tRFC........................................... 52-62 (if 2x2GB)
    tRTP........................................... 3 auto
    Command Rate (CMD) ....................: 2

    Driving Strength Profiles
    Driving Strength ............................ 800-1066

    Channel A & B
    Static tRead Value.........................:3 auto << this is going to HAVE to be set, 3 is WAY to low. Set to 7-10 ( I would say 10 for now till you get squared away) Both channels should match

    Motherboard Voltage Control
    Voltage Type.………... Manual
    CPU
    CPU Vcore….……….........................:1,.16250V
    CPU Termination…..... 1.200V*.......: 1.200V
    CPU PLL…………………....1.500V*.......: 1.500V
    CPU Referen.…………....0.755V*.......:Auto


    MCH/ICH
    MCH Core…………….....1.100V...........: 1.100V << If 2x2GB please set to 1.2-1.3


    DRAM
    DRAM Voltage ……....1.800V............: 1.800V << Try 1.9-2.0

    Ok, i'll try that.. but still i don't think the problem is about the transcend memory... it just reboots all the time..

    Yes, you are correct Transcend works fine I have personally tested Transcend AXE Ram and it worked great. I said what I said because you said OEM Ram not transcend ram

    Did you have a chance to try my suggested settings yet? Post back when you do

    Hmm, your board may be faulty then? Can you still RMA for a exchange where you bought it?

    Are you sure your PSU is good enough for your system and GFX Card?

    EDIT: After updating bios it seems to be ok..

    So, remember to use latest bios available :)



    Hello!

    I have simillar problems with my gigabyte EP43-DS3L.

    My ram is Kingston Hyperx KHX8500D2K2/2G, 2 x 1GB.

    I've installed Windows Vista, but it was rebooting very often, almost always when trying to install some software, or win updates - it was impossible to finish downloading and installing all updates.

    So ive borrowed 2 x 1GB kingston 533Mhz Ram from my friend, and it worked perfectly fine, no reboots or freezing windows, memtest86 passed.

    Conclusion: RAM is broken, so i just replaced it, for new kingston hyperx, and guess what? The same.. mostly freezing windows, and of course lots of errors in Memtest86.
    I was trying different settings, but only this 'standard'.
    1066 MHz 5-5-5-15 2.2V (in datasheet kingston said that is what they tested)
    1066 Mhz 5-5-5-15 1.8V, 1.9, 2.0 V
    default auto settings are (thats wierd): 5-7-7-28

    I've tried also 800MHz 5-5-5-18 1.8V.
    Oh, and 'Performance Enhance' is: standard..


    Can you suggest what advanced settings should I try?
    I'm going to change 'Static tRead Value' now..
