    Default Ud3r BIOS

    Hello a few months back I built a GA-EP45-UD3R board with an Intel INTEL CORE 2 DUO E8400 and Corsair Dominator 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel Kit memory I would like info on setting the bios correctly to run regular with no overclocking.

    I have never touched the BIOS before and hav never updated it cuase i didnt think i really need too go near it incase i messed it up. But its a bit werid cause i can play a game like COD4 on full graphics and plays fine then i try the same with Fallout3 and the game would play away for a little bit and then crash in random places.

    To run standard settings without overclocking, you should choose "Load Optimized Defaults" from the BIOS menu. Save and reboot. After that, if you want to adjust options to match your hardware needs like hard drives, boot order etc. you can do that.

    As a side note, I tested the plain default settings with Orthos just for fun, and it failed after 7.5 hours. My point is that by tweaking a few settings, you can actually get a more stable configuration going on. I have very similar hardware to you. Look in my signature for a link to stock voltages. It may bring you more stability in the long run.

    Yeah, I know it's for a little overclocking, but the voltages are all stock. If you just want plain vanilla default settings, then go with Optimized defaults. Maybe test stability with Orthos with Optimized settings to make sure it is good for you.

    well i did test it with Orthos for about 4 and a hlf hours today and there were no errors that was on the blend option hope it was long enough to test it properly.

    Im gonna run Memtest from now till tommorrow cause im away for the night and it says its better too leave it run over night.

    Dont know how to link my ram sorry(noob i know). Its Corsair Dominator 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C5 1066MHz if that helps.

    Yes, since the E8400 runs at 3.0GHz natively, the settings I posted will take it up to 3.6GHz. This is a very modest overclock, and since it should be achievable on stock voltages, it's not so much of an overclock as "free performance!"

    but the Ram setting like


    DRAM Performance Control
    Performance Enhance....................: [STANDARD]
    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.)........: [Disabled]
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch.................: Auto
    System Memory Multiplier ..............: 2.66D
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) ................: 1069
    DRAM Timing Selectable ................: [Manual]

    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time.......................: 5
    tRCD ..................................: 5
    tRP'...................................: 5
    tRAS...................................: 15

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD...................................: 4
    tWTR...................................: 4
    tWR....................................: 6
    tRFC...................................: 54
    tRTP...................................: 4
    Command Rate (CMD) ....................: 2
    </pre>
    will they work with the RAM i use or would they be different?
