    Default GIGABYTE EP45-UD3R memory issue...

    HI

    Im quite new to GIGABYTE boards. I bought one cause my buddy is running one and said they were great boards. Well, ive had nothing but issues with mine. Ihave a EP45-UD3R board with a Q9450. I have been trying to run G.Skill DDR-1066 2.0-2.1v 6-6-6-18 2GBx4 (F2-8500CL6-4GBNQ). Im able to run 4 gigs and thats it. If i pop in all 8 gigs, i get a BSOD while loading up Windows. Now, i have tried all stick one at a time, all good. I have tried 4 gigs using random sticks, all good. Why is this board not allowing me to run all 8? Now, my BIOS settings are pretty much default. Is there a setting im missing?? Or is it that the board dosnt like this brand of ram? Any help would be great.

    Need more MCH core for 8GB, prob have to tweak some memory settings alos like make sure the PL(static tRead) is 9 or 10 for starters. Also make sure you have the Dram voltage at the high end of the specs

    Im not sure how high to go on the MCH so i went to 1.24, 1.2 gave me A BSOD. As for the static tread, im at 10 (both A&B) and voltage on the memory is @ 2.1. Im loaded up and on my desktop with 8 gigs. Anything else i should look at? Thanxs for the reply man, you have given me new hope!!

    Please post your settings you are using so we can better advise. As for your MCH with 8GB depending on the strap you are using and multi you may need more or less voltage. A good starting range for 8Gb would be 1.25-1.35 but it does depend on straps and multi's as well. And put performance enhance on standard, make sure trfc is set to 72-82 for now as well, trtp 4-7 >>>
