    Default EP45-UD3P won't boot with 2x2GB installed - UGH!

    Alright, I've posted about this before but still no luck.

    I switched from OCZ to Mushkin RAM, which is supposedly so much more stable with Gigabyte boards, but I am still having the same problem: the system boots fine with 1x2gb installed. But when I have 2x2GB installed in banks 1+3, it will not POST, it will just beep numerous times and reboot, and the video never comes on- I can't even get into the BIOS.

    I set the timings to match the sticker and upped the DRAM voltage to 2.100v. I even tried lsdmeasap's settings from this post. No luck.

    Here are my specs:
    Mobo - Gigabyte EP45-UD3P, BIOS F5
    Memory - Mushkin PC2 8500 2x2GB kit, model # 996599
    CPU - E8500 3.16 GHZ
    Vid - eVGA 8800 GT
    550w Coolermaster PSU
    2x250 GB WD HDs, RAID 0
    Vista 64 Home Premium.

    Suggestions? This is driving me nuts!!
    Thanks.

    boot up with 1 ram ... go into setting .. set your trap to 333 .. and 2.0 divider ... that is 800 speed .... and reboot then put 2 ram in ... let the system boot up ... then reboot and adjust your ram speed ... but the trap is 333 ... i have same problem when run 400 trap ...

    First of all, the link you gave it to a template that I asked a user for his settings with. There is no actual setting suggestions given in that thread, and that user has 800Mhz ram.

    Did you test this ram yet? When you buy new ram you must always test each stick by itself in slot one to be sure you did not get a faulty stick or set. You should do this test with performance enhance on standard, main timings set, ram voltage set, and memory multiplier = to stock ram speed. If you get errors with both sticks on slot one, try the other slots to be sure if it is the ram that is bad or a onboard ram slot possibly

    Here is what you should be looking to use for stock with your setup >>>>

    Code:
    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    Robust Graphics Booster ...............: Auto or Fast
    CPU Clock Ratio ..........................: 9
    Fine CPU Clock Ratio.....................:.5
    CPU Frequency ...........................: 3.16
    
    
    Clock Chip Control 
    Standard Clock Control
    CPU Host Clock Control..................: [Enabled] 
    CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) ............: 333Mhz
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) .........:Set to 100

    Performance Enhance...................: [STANDARD]
    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.).....: Disabled

    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ..............: 1066
    DRAM Timing Selectable ................: [Manual]
    
    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time........................5
    tRCD .........................................5
    tRP'...........................................5
    tRAS..........................................15
    
    Set all highest below then later you can lower testing as you go.  If you do not want to set all of this stuff, you need to at least set performance enhance above, trfc below, ram voltage, and MCH Voltages.  The rest you may leave on auto if you want if static Tread is not too low.  You may need to set it as well

    Godto - thank you, moving the multiplier down to 2.0 did the trick.

    My question now is you say "the trap is 333" - are you suggesting that I can't raise it up above that from here on out?

    you should able to ... i start out with 333 .. 2.4 .... but since then i OC .... had the same problem .. had to adjust mine to 400 .. 2.0 ..... i'm OC mine to 3.8 now .. on Q9550 ... i use 333 because it is your ram to start with 8500 ... and depend on your OC .. you just pick the one that closes to your ram ... or if you OC your ram then choose what ever stable

    Oh nuts - thought I had this solved but when I shutdown and tried to restart it later (no changes made), it wouldn't boot - same reboot loop! This is crazy.

    Sounds like voltage may not have been enough. I can't really say without knowing exactly what settings you were using....

    So please post the full template with what you are trying that fails and I will see if I can get you going

    Same memory/mobo issues here. What info can I post so you can help me with this? Getting really frustrated and would REALLY appreciate your help.
