    Question EP45-U3DP Sleep Problem

    Hi everyone! I'm new here!

    I've read through perhaps 30-40 pages worth of thread listings and couldn't find a real conclusive answer to the problem that I have.

    I recently built a C2D E8400 machine running Vista Ultimate 32bit. I'm using a EP45-U3DP mobo along with G.Skill 2x2GB memory (more on the specifics, if necessary). PSU is a Corsair 650W.

    My problem is not that it can't go into S3 sleep. The problem is that when I try to wake the computer, it stalls out. Sometimes I'm able to wait for the stall to be "over" (it seems to remember all the things I did such as opening windows, moving things around, but they pop up all at once like 5 minutes later or more). There were a few times where it would just become completely unresponsive, thereby forcing me to press the reset or power button. One of those times it "reset" but then said "Resuming Windows".

    I'm on version F8 for my bios. And since this is a fresh build, NOTHING is overclocked right now. Pretty much everything is auto/default with the exception of the PCI Express speed set to 100. C1E and C2E are disabled. EIST is enabled, although I don't thing this is causing the problem.

    This is the first time I've ever built a machine from the ground up. Everything actually booted up fine the first try! This is the ONLY issue I have right now... *fingers crossed*

    Default Re: EP45-U3DP Sleep Problem

    UD3 models sleep issues have not fully been worked out in the BIOS. so S3 is hit or miss depending on your FSB and the BIOS you are using.

    Since you are having issues at stock, then it sounds like you may not have your memory setup properly.

    If you think you need some help please give me your specs and settings in the below template.

    I do suggest you use the latest BIOS which is F9 now >>

    Please read here for info on flashing with Qflash as I do not suggest @BIOS and tips for loading optimized defaults after your flash >>

    Random tidbit: When I disable XMP, it causes the Standard Timing Control to go to 5-5-5-15, thus I changed it back to Auto. Also, I notice that when it goes into S3 sleep, my computer is dead quiet (can't even hear the fans) but the power LED is not on. Isn't it supposed to act as it's breathing (you know, "on-off-on-off")?

    Thank you in advance for helping out!

    Default Re: EP45-U3DP Sleep Problem

    Sorry for the late reply, I'm playing catch up still!

    No S3 sleep is DEAD Quiet, basically OFF. All you should see is the LED's on the board, those and the ram is ALL that has power going thru it.

    Like I said the S3 issues may not be fully worked out for your board yet, but you should be ok at stock (Maybe not though so don't hold me to that as I do not have one of these boards to test )

    May want to try F9 for sure though as if it is fixed it would be in that BIOS >>

    I noticed that for the ICH I/O and ICH Core voltages, I was not able to set the values to your suggestions. For ICH I/O, it appears that closest voltage I can select is 1.57V. For ICH Core, it only allows me to select in increments of 0.1V. Thus it goes from 1.1, 1.2, etc.

    Any ideas why I don't have as granular control on these values?

    Has anyone figured out a good solution to this problem? This problem along with the no audio from rear speakers when 4.1, 5.1, or 7.1 is selected are huge issues for me (even though the workaround is to set the rear speakers as "side speakers", this is still something I'd like to see fixed -- I'm sure many people would like to see this fixed too).
