Thread: GA-EP45-UD3P ram problem




  1. #11

    Default Re: GA-EP45-UD3P ram problem

    Hey I was just rereading a great thread. I was having major issues with my E8400 and 2x2GB of OCZ. I was thinking it was not a ram problem as I could adjust it and would be fine , I just could not get the FSB any higher than 400.

    Well this board is VERY VERY sensative to "MCH" and "MCH Reff"

    I am priming right now at 460x9 which I could not even get close to before.

    Set the MCH to ~1.32 or 1.38v but most important set the MCH reff to .75v for either setting of MCH, if you have lower MCH then you can prob go down to ~.70 MCH reff

    Only other thing I did was to up the cpu termination to 1.28v which may not even be needed?

    Cheers

    well im pretty sure i just figured out the problem, i took out both the ram sticks, plugged one of the sticks into each ram slot and it booted up every time, ttok that ram stick out and plugged the second stick into each ram slot and the comp never booted up in any of the slots, so im pretty sure i have a dead ram stick being as it does not work, im going to bye some different brand ram on saturday, ill tell you how it goes.

    the thing still though is that it did work before, and now its not at all, does this mean i have a stick of ram that is dead, or just screwed up?

    If one stick works at stock settings in all slots, but one does not then yes you have a faulty stick.

    If you find it is not faulty, please give me the settings you are using and a link to your ram and I will advise optimal settings >>>

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

    I am so happy I found this page. Finally a possible solution to my problem. I have the same issue. Stock setting dont work with 2 sticks. Each alone appears to be fine. I will fill out the form with my settings, will I find all those in bios?

    Thanks.

    Here are the settings. The areas in red I couldn't find, I haven't changed anything so it is likely all set for auto.

    I am running Corsair CM2X2048 8500 C5D, XMS2-8500, 2048 mb, 1066, 5-5-5-15, 2.1v, v2.1
