    Ran prime95 over night, about 3am the computer rebooted. There were some windows updates running in the background, dont know if those were the culprit, ran for 11 hours. Going to start it again this morning. Cpu voltage according to cpuz with no load is at 1.248.

    Prime 95 ran for 2 1/2 hours this morning and then the computer became unresponsive. I'm not sure whats going on. I came home and the power was on but the computer was unresponsive, I had to hard reboot. I could use some help, anyone

    Unable to boot up with both ram in the computer now. I tried one of the sticks, no problem, I swapped the ram, tried the other stick and the computer doesnt even boot. I cant event get the computer to overclock now, hard to get the board to run stock speeds. I had a better experience with a 45 dollar g31 foxconn motherboard. Starting to wonder why I bought this motherboard.

    Try clear cmos for few minutes then try again boot into bios to load defaults then save to exit.

    After it said in the bios, it overclocked, it set the default, I had the one ram stick in and it booted the default 3.16. I shut it down, put the other memory stick in and received beeps right off the bat, it wouldnt boot, seems like a memory issue. I am going to try to clear the bios and try the possible bad stick again. This is turning into a nightmare. I hate the thought of rma the ram and who knows whats going on with the motherboard.

    disconnected everything, reset the bios, tried the "possible" bad ram, powered up, beeped several fast beeps (like 24 or so). Turned the power off, put the other stick in and the system booted right up. Sounds like I got one bad stick of ram.

    You should have Performance Enhance set to Standard and tRFC to 60 for 4GB and 1000Mhz ddr2.

    I talked with gigabyte and my troubleshooting the ram seems on par, one works, one is doa. I will take all the suggestions when I get a new set of ram next week, pretty disappointed with gskill so far.

    I've read here --->bit-tech.net | Review - Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R, that they had a lot of trouble reaching a stable overclock with a 500 fsb clock. If I were you I'd raise the multiplier and lower the FSB, that's probably one of the reasons your oc is unstable.

    Too bad about your RAM, but I'd like to know if your have any success by lowering the multiplier. I'm getting this board soon, with the same processor as you and liked to see someone reach a stable 4ghz with the E8500 Btw, the url above should be reliable enough to take the advice given there.

    The board ran 500 fsb for 12 hours until the memory started to fail. I'm wonduring if I can get it stable at that speed again. I would be okay at 425 at 9.5 though. Ram is coming monday, i'll have to memory test it this time around.
