    I have no idea, I emailed Gigabyte about my EP45's new bios, but they just dont know in CS what exactly has been changed!

    Personally I havent had any luck with beta bios's. When I updated to a beta on my old EX38, it made things worse!

    Rule is, dont update unless something is broken and that something that has broken has been stated to be fixed on the bios page!


    So definitly dont install a beta!

    If you really want to know, I guess you will have to contact Gigabyte, if theres no info at all, maybe they can find out?

    Had to install the f6a to support 1333 fsb processor, had it running with memory @ 1066 until I pulled 2 chips for father-in-law. Got my 2 chips back and now memory wont run @ 1066 only 800.

    You will need to test each stick one by one in memtest to determine if one of the sticks are at fault.

    Also, if matching pairs, make sure you have each pair in one channel incase they are slightly different.

    You will need to raise MCH core and slacken Tread speed for 4x1gb most likely, so post your current bios settings!

    You need to also increase your Tread value to around 12 for testing.

    Pls use one of the templates for your board in the forum to post settings (its easier). Also, use just one config at a time. No point getting overly confused with two lots of settings.

    There is no 3.33B memory multiplier... So is this your error maybe if you are using 3.33C or D, or is that a typo?

    3.20B would be what you need to use at 333FSB for 1066 Ram speed. at 400 FSB you need to use 2.66D

    What tRFC (Refresh to Act Delay) are you using, that is very confusing how you wrote that.

    And what Static tRead Value are you using, you left that out as well? MCH VOltage for 4x1GB should be fine at +0.2-0.3, more is not needed. And since you said you have ran your ram up to +0.7 (= 2.5V) then that is likely what is wrong, your ram is dead or damaged. Never try that again at all, maybe 2.2-2.3 is ok IF you have a fan on the ram, but even then only for short runs would I advise using anything above 2.2V (+0.4)

    my memory is Geil estoria 1066 5-5-5-15 2.3-2.5v I do have a fan on the ram

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820144097

    Ive ran this memory at 4-4-4-10 timings @ 1066 w/2.4v on a gigabyte p35-ds3l for benchmarking.
