    got my new parts today (i7 920, Gigabyte X58-UD5 & 3x1GB G.Skill 1600mhz)

    I've tried everything to get my ram to run @ its correct speed, but it just wont.

    My settings

    Load XMP Profile (1600mhz) and set ram timings to 9-9-9-24-2T

    Set CPU voltage to 1.4125 (for 4.0Ghz)
    Set QPI/VTT voltage to 1.555 (as i have a lot of hdd's and running ram at higher speed)
    Set Dram voltage to 1.7V (more than specified)
    All other voltages are auto.

    Turbo disabled
    Hyperthreading disabled
    Set QPI multi to X36
    Uncore to x13
    Multi to x20
    Mem Multi to x8.

    But it wont boot @ that ram speed. I drop the ram multi back to 6 and it boots up fine and can loop 3dmark several times.

    Can someone point me in the right direction

    Other specs are:

    HD4870X2
    Asus Xonar D2X Soundcard
    1 x 300GB velociraptor
    2 x 1TB Samsung HDD's
    2 x Pioneer DVD-RW
    Leadtek TV-Tuner PCI
    Antec Quattro 1000W

    Thanks
    uncore must be 2x mem divider or higher or no boot.

    So 13 uncore with 6x mem = OK. When raise mem divider to 8x, uncore must be 16x or higher, I am using 8mem/UC 17 or 18.

    And I would try to drop mem volts and qpi/vtt, doubt you need that high.

    Your uncore needs to be higher like rge said, if that doesn't work, try to set the tRC to 33, and tRFC to 74.

    I'm running 2GBx3 1600MHz Corsair at that setting, and this kits default clock is 1333.

    I hate this board with a passion, and is by far the WORST board I've ever used. PERIOD. Definitely has turned me away from buying another Gigabyte board ever.

    I feel like I've wasted so much money on this, since now I'm either out 2 weeks minimum RMA'ing this thing or out another $300 buying a real board. What is this infinite 88 power recycling BS at stock settings? When it does work, there is a wall harder to bust through than 12ft thick concrete slabs @ 180bclk, unless using slow mode. When using slow mode it might as well be a pentium 3 as the speeds are atrocious!

    Oh man talk about problems.

    X58 Extreme, i7 920 and 3 x 2gb Corsair 1600MHz.

    Board shiped with F2 bios, flashed straight to F4m, rebooted and loaded optimised defaults fine. Powered down and then it wouldn't power back up no matter what I did. DDR Phase Leds always remain lit? Tried the clear cmos button and nothing.

    Stripped the board of all components and poped the battery and put a jumper on the cmos pins, left it for an hour and put the system back together and it powered on and posted, all settings stock. Powered down and tried to power on again and same problem, wouldn't power on, just a super quick fan spin up and led flash then nothing. Followed same procedure as above then it posted again. Powered down and again it wouldn't power back up??????

    Wen't through the above over a dozen times then became tired of it all and just left the system there with the power disconnected.....tried powering up again half an hour later and it powered up and posted. So I tried adjusting a few settings and rebooted then had the wonderfull 88 code and the infinite reboot power cycle.....OMG. Powered down and disconnected power cord, left it for an hour and it powered up

    Tried changing a few settings then tried installing windows and no matter what I tried with raid it wouldn't let me enter the Intel raid utility no matter how much I mashed the Ctrl-I keys......okay, I'll try ACHI mode. At the instal drivers screen when installing Vista it wanted the Intel driver so I put the Gigabyte cd into the drive, directed it to the apropriate driver and it wouldn't accept it FFS.

    Powered down again and it wouldn't power up again....am I surprised, of course not . Left it for half an hour and powered up and during post I get the message bios has become corrupted because of a failed overclock and bios is being backed up from the dual bios chip Man am I getting over it by now.

    Anyway this board I have seems completely stuffed and this is my first foray into the realms of Gigabyte and it's not a promising start. Bios flashing seems dodgy and the bios itsels seems flakey. Unlike the Awadflash dos program that Asus uses where you can set parameters during flashing Gigabyte has noting similar. Whenever I flashed an Asus board I always used to flash the bootblock yet there is no option with the Gigabyte, even the Flash789 program under dos is so convoluted I couldn't even get it to work at all.

    Any tips???? or should I just rma this piece of junk?

    I'd hardly call a hardware incompatability "user error".


    It's nothing to do with me that the Gigabyte board has an issue with the Toughpower 1200W PSU whereas all my other mobos work fine with it.

    Well now you have been told what the issue may be, the PSU. Have you tested another yet?
