    Default GA-EX58-UD5 Triple Channel Memory problems!

    Hey,

    Signed up to try and find a possible solution to my problem.

    My system will not post with 6GB G.Skill 1333mhz DDR3 in Triple Channel. I have tested each module and none are defective. 4GB in Dual Channel works fine.

    In Triple Channel I just get a series of continous beeps and an error code 6F after hanging on 68. I have tried slots 1,3,5 and 2,4,6 with the same error. I have tried clearing the CMOS a number of times and raising the DRAM Voltage to 1.6, still nothing.

    For the last month or so I have been running the system fine with 4GB RAM after having this problem when the system was orignally built. I just used 4GB to get the system going and pretty much forgot about it until now. However, I dont want a 2GB stick lying around wasted.

    Any ideas? I have spent ages looking on other forums and Google for a possible solution, but cant seem to find much. I dont want to Flash the BIOS as memory compatibility doesnt seem to be listed as updates in newer BIOS' and many people seem to have more problems with newer versions. I run F3.

    Cheers.

    The search facility has been updated on these forums. There have been a few recent posts that cover to varying degrees this subject (ie with X58).

    Try typing "X58" (without quotes) in the search box.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I am going to try the solution suggested in the link provided by Johnny as I seem to have the same problem as the link posted concerning the EVGA board. Before flashing the BIOS, I need to buy a new USB Drive as the one I have now isnt recognised by Q-Flash. Its quite old and was pretty cheap. Im currently busy working away elsewhere, but I will try the new USB Drive when I get home.

    I will post back any results for reference.

    Thanks for the help, hopefully i'll be posting back with good news!

    looks like I have the exact same issue with the UD3R board

    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/ex58...-issues-29991/

    I've tried reseating the CPU twice and checked for any skewed pins, but everything looked fine. Still no access to the first memory slot.

    spoke too soon... I actually found a skewed pin on my board as well... tweaked it back, and all is now well.

    Hi,

    I have tried one or two other things, but with no result.

    I have tried Flashing the BIOS several times with different versions and have also tried Johnnys method. I still get continous beeps and no post.

    I am now pretty sure my middle two DIMM slots are defective. I am currently running 4GB with 2x2GB sticks in slots 1 and 5 with no issues. With sticks in slots 5 and 3 the computer will post and boot fine, but will only recognise 2GB not 4GB. Stangely I can access all the Latency times in the BIOS, but the RAM isnt detected. Running with slots 1 and 3 I will get the continous beeps before post.

    These issues are present with every version of BIOS I have flashed to.

    I am guessing the board is defective, but I am reluctant to try and RMA because the rest of my system is running perfectly. I dont really have any performance issues with 4GB.

    Thanks, still open to any suggestions.

    Look, you've paid for 6GB and 6GB you should get. If you can't narrow down the problem source, just RMA the board.

    I'm sorry to hear nothing has worked untill now.
    Let's see... is your OS a 64bit based one? Because, as far as I know, only Vista 64 SP1 will recognise the full 6GB (i'm not sure about WinXP 64)
