    Default GA-EP43-DS3L (rev. 1.0) BIOS version F8 Settings Help

    I have just purchased GA-EP43-DS3L (rev. 1.0) BIOS version F8 motherboard.

    What are the best BIOS settings for this board and the following:

    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
    Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C4DHX with 4-4-4-12 timings set and 1.8v set instead of Auto, I have turned the Turbo setting to Standard
    http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/T...-6400C4DHX.pdf

    Thank you

    3.0Ghz, no overclocking

    Current settings...

    Although the system doesn't post right away with this settings, it reboots three times and then posts fine after that, so I think its just resetting to optimized defaults. I think the voltage is the problem, but Corsair only allows 1.8V

    I had same issues but increasing the cpu vcore might do the trick for you. Thats what the people here suggested and so far its stable. Although I have a different cpu e5200 intel duo. increase it bit by bit just to be safe.

    I even tried 5-5-5-18 1.8V still does the same. I might try upping the cpu vcore, but I am waiting for Lsdmeasap's reply.

    Ya, triple reboot is not good. That ram is rated at 2.1V so you need to set 2.0-2.1 to use the 444-12 timings, and that is likely your issue.

    Here would be optimal for what you gave
