    Yes MCH is your memory controller. For 8GB you would need 1.24-1.34 depending on all other settings.

    Mind posting me your full settings, and I will try to help you get these random issues solved. And please post a Screenshot of this program open so I may see what Auto is giving you for some of those values >>>

    Here are my current settings, mostly optimized defaults other than the dram voltage and mch voltage. I can't give you the memset output because currently I can't get a good vista install. It doesn't like the sata drives on the ich10r controller. I've tried Sata disabled and ahci, native mode enabled and disabled. Vista sees the disk but sez it can't find one that meets its criteria for a system volume. I had previously installed to the disk on the SATA2 controller, with ahci off and legacy mode. Moved it to the other controller (read that it was preferable on some thread here), and couldn't get vista to boot. Blew away the partition and partition table and tried to start over on that controller. No luck. Note - I've tried loading both the drivers from the distribution disk and the "pre-install" drivers from GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver - GA-EP45-UD3R (rev. 1.1)

    OsX is happy with Ahci, native mode on or off.

    Note - drivers were loaded during install when vista gives the volume selection option.

    Default Re: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX resets continually

    So did you get vista installed? For the Intel *Yellow* Controller you do not need any drivers unless you want to run RAID or AHCI, and Vista has a AHCI Driver included. So it sounds to me like you have some settings wrong in the BIOS.

    These are what you should set for a NON AHCI or NON RAID System >>>

    Integrated Peripherals

    Intel *Yellow Ports*

    SATA RAID/AHCI Mode (Intel ICH10R Southbridge) ............. Disabled
    SATA Port0-3 Native Mode ................................... Enabled (or Disabled, both will work)

    Gigabyte/J.Micron *Purple Ports)
    Onboard SATA/IDE Device (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ............. Disabled, Enabled if you have ANY IDE Ribbon cable Devices connected, or are using any SATA Drives additionally on these ports

    Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode (GIGABYTE SATA2 Chip) ........... IDE


    What BIOS are you using? You may want to raise Static tRead Value for now to 7-8 until you get sorted, this may be a issue as well with 8GB

    No, I can't seem to get Vista to accept a disk on the "yellow" controller.
    An earlier install non ahci on ther purple controller worked, but wouldn't boot
    when I moved it to yellow. I blew away that install and have been trying to
    install on yellow with various setting, none working.

    Well, I tried the disk on the purple controller again, tried all settings including legacy ide control, windows will create and delete partitions, then say it can't find a valid system volume for install...

    At one point I tried to make the drive available to both windows and OsX - someone suggested that creating both fat32 and hfs+ partions under OsX diskutil would result in a hybrid partition table acceptable to both Vista and Osx. It didn't, and I've attempted to go back to a straight MBR partion table.

    I suspect this juggling may have bricked the drive as far as Vista is concerned.

    Raised the static TRead value per your suggestion. This required changing from Auto to Manual Dram settings, timing set 5-5-5-15.

    System continues to boot normally.

    Ya you would not be able to move a AHCI install from one controller to the other as the drivers differ.

    With all that OSX talk, you may need to Zero out your drive and start over. Let me know if you need me to find you some freeware tools to do this. If you already have such things like Hiren's Boot CD or similar the proper tools will be on those. You would need to Zero out the drive and then format it again Primary NTFS and set it active then you should be able to install Vista without issue on the Intel Ports

    the usual 2 cents :)
    Yeh get the hard drive out of the picture.
    Low level format/repair it with the manufacturers own utility if needed.May have to search a bit.
    Me personally,One drive for one operating system.
    mbrd will let you boot off whatever drive you want and 150+gb drives are v inexpensive now.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    Okay -

    I downloaded Hiren's Bood CD and burnt the iso, but it won't boot. Dos boot just hangs, tiny Xp ends with a screen with large blocks of color. Perhaps because I have a Sata cdrom? Dunno. Lots of utilities there, all with a huf extension. Wazzat? Probably huffman coded? Dunno.

    Anyhow, I tried parted and blowing away, rewriting partition didn't make vista happy; finally used vista recovery/repair option and let it repair the disk. Now have a good bootable vista install, updated with gigabyte driver disk, wifi working so I can update from web.

    On OsX. still trying to find and complete driver installs and end with a bootable disk without needing Cd boot-132.

    With a good Vista, and the board now stable - I credit the dram voltage adjustment primarily responsible - now perhaps I can look at performance enhancement.....
