    Unhappy Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Overclocking boot failures

    I am getting the following error: "The system has experienced boot failures because of overclocking or changes in voltage. Latest settings in BIOS my not coincide with current H/W states." when I try to overclock my GA-EX58-UD5 in any way.

    My GA-EX58-UD5(rev. 1.0) motherboard is running the latest Bios version (EX58UD5.F4), a Core i7 720 (base speed 2.66 GHz), 6 gigs of Patriot memory (PVT36G1600ELK DDR3 1600, 9,9,9,24), Enermax 720W power supply and a Noctuna CPU cooler. I have had no problem running when running with standard settings or when I set the "Performance Enhance" setting to "Tubro" or Extreme".

    I have been unsuccessful when trying to make the following BIOS changes. 1) Simple overclock using Gigabye's Easy Tune 6 using Quick Boost Option 1 (CPU 2.8 GHz, BCLK 140 MHz), Option 2 (CPU 3.0 GHz, BCLK 150 MHz) or Option 3 (CPU 3.2 GHz, BCLK 160 MHz). 2) An aggressive overclock 3.8 GHz, BCLK 200 MHz and other clock/voltage changes as suggested by a Gigabyte technial guide (http://lakesidepc.com/Core.i7.920.oc....12.12_ENG.pdf) or 3) A simple change so that the Bios matches the specs of my Patriot memory. I set the multiplier to 12 for a speed of 1600, with timings of 9,9,9,24 and a voltage of 1.64V. Note these settings correspond to the actual specs of my Patriot memory.

    When I make any of these changes the system will reboot twice and I will get the boot failure message. During my troubleshooting I have done the following at one time or another: cleared the bios, put the bios in fail safe mode. Even with these actions I sill get the same failure message.

    I have contacted Gigabyte technical support and they have not been helpful. Their last comment was: "When overclocking if it is not stable at an certain spec it will not be able to accept the setting and will revert back to original settings". Stating the obvious does not help me.
    I need to know what's causing this condition. Is there a Bios setting that is causing this to happen? How do I troubleshoot this problem? Is thre any way to overclock this board without getting this message?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    I can't help you fix the problem but I think it might be your memory...
    see if you can borrow a different set of memory to try..

    Good luck!!

    You need to find and set a proper QPI Voltage when you set your ram up like that, you also must manually set uncore to be 2 x your memory Multi, in this case 2x12 so 24 uncore

    I would say set your ram voltage to 1.64, then set uncore to 24, then set QPI Voltage to 1.24-1.32

    If you still have issues please give me all your settings and I will see what I can advise back >>>

    Unhappy Re: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Overclocking boot failures

    Lsdmeasp, thanks for your suggestions; unfortunately they don’t seem to work. I have tried the following scenarios:
    1) DRAM: 1.64V, QPI: 1.24V, Uncore: 24x(3200 MHz),memory: 12x (1600 MHz)
    2) DRAM: 1.64V, QPI: 1.28V, Uncore: 24x(3200 MHz),memory: 12x (1600 MHz)
    3) DRAM: 1.64V, QPI: 1.30V, Uncore: 24x(3200 MHz),memory: 12x (1600 MHz)
    4) DRAM: 1.64V, QPI: 1.32V, Uncore: 24x(3200 MHz),memory: 12x (1600 MHz)
    Midway through this testing I also upgraded to version 5 of the Bios (EX58UD5.F5). In all cases I got the same result. There were two restarts of the system and then I got the same failure messages as before:

    The system has experienced boot failures because of overclocking or changes in voltage. Latest settings in BIOS my not coincide with current H/W states. Note the memory speed was reset back to 1033 MHz.

    Stasio, I upgraded my Bios to 6b (as you suggested) and I'm still seeing the same problem. I used the following settings: DRAM: 1.64V, QPI: 1.30V, Uncore: 24x(3200 MHz),memory: 12x (1600 MHz) timings: 9,9,9,24 and got the same failure message, as before and the memory speed was reset to 1033 MHz. I'm really stumped with this one. All I'm trying to do is upgrade my Bios' setting to match my actual memory. Again, if any one can help me with this it wourld be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I think you have problem with RAM or setting using always multi x20,uncore X24,memory x12.
    OK,I ask my friend and he give me his stable setting as:
    CPU: 3.66GHz
    RAM: 1544MHz

    Btw, how X.M.P setting missing from BIOS?

    Stasio, Thanks for taking the trouble to share your friends configuration. Unfortunatly these settings did not work - the same error message as before...

    I was also very curious about the missing X.M.P setting in the Bios. I checked and my three sticks of Patriot (2GB -1600) memory and they were in the white slots (2, 4 and 6). I checked the motherboard book and it indicated that if you had only 3 sticks of DDR3, they had to be installed in the blue slots (1, 3 and 5). When I made this change the motherboard would not post. There would be about 30 seconds of silence followed by about 8 seconds of rapid beeping. This pattern would repeat over and over again. I then shutdown my system, and put my memory into the white slots. I then reverted to version 5 of the Bios using default settings (no overclocking). I then shut down my system and moved the memory back to the blue slots (1, 3 and 5). Again the motherboard would not post and I got the same beeping pattern (30 seconds of silence, 8 seconds of beeping).

    Do you or anyone else have any idea of what's going on? I have the following questions:
    1) What problem does this beeping indicate?
    2) If I only have three sticks of DDR3 should they be inserted into the blue slots
    (1, 3, 5) or the white slots (2. 4, 6)
    3) My Patriot memory [PVT36G1600ELK DDR3 1600] supports X.M.P Why don't I see this setting in the Bios? (In this case my memory is in the white slots (2. 4, 6).
    4) Can you please list the manfacturer(s) and part number of 2G DDR3 modules that work with the GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard.

    Again, thanks for your help with this issue.

    OK,first memory for triple channel should be in white(2-4-6)slots.
    On Patriot Forum you can get more details for your memory.
    Here is also Patriot recommended default BIOS setting for UD5(with Core i7-965),for your memory PVT36G1600ELK DDR3
    Also Gigabyte Memory Support List
    Be sure after flashing BIOS, load Optimized default.
