    Default New ga-ex58-ud5 board, what next?

    Rma'd the old board, have the new one, are there any special steps I should take when firing it up for the first time? I want it just to run normal, no overclocking, nothing fancy. Having it stable first is most important, might look into further tweaking down the road.

    Do i need to go immediately into the bios and adjust any settings or...?

    Thanks!

    Yes, I would go in and first load optimized defaults, then set your ram voltage ONLY and save/apply/reboot back to the BIOS. Then set any disk settings and or other settings you wish to adjust and you should be good to go.

    Uncore Multi always needs to be 2x ram multi or 2x+1

    QPI Freq has to be kept under 4GT/s so normally 36/44 multi would be ok. Do keep in mind the BIOS shows 36/44 for the above mentioned multi's and 8Ghz would be the limit I mean for that. The true Multi's are 18/22/24 and the BIOS Shows 36/44/48, and the true limit for the QPI Bus is 4GT/s and the BIOS shows 8Ghz for that amount

    QPI/VTT voltage depending on your CPU and ram settings may need to be 1.25-1.35 or more for 1600+ ram speed

    IOH may need 1.14-1.24

    Ram voltage may need 1.64-1.66 or so depending on the settings used and your BIOS difference in actual voltages applied

    thnx, Lsdmeasap, that's all good info. i'm capable to mechanically build a system, but a total noob re bios and voltages, frequencies etc, so i'm a little lost, but will revisit my mb manual. too bad there is no template for stock settings with my particular brand/amount of ram?
    that might be what i'm worried of most, just want to be sure that ram and board play nice together

    Did you come from P35 or P45? I agree, building a system is the easy part for sure

    Here is some "General" Stock settings for your setup. Of course the CPU and QPI Voltage may need adjusted (QPI mainly as even at stock/Auto settings you may need more QPI to get your CPU to run your ram at stock)

    These settings are all stock, but with an overclock in mind so some things will be setup for that intention. If you want a real "Stock/Auto" setup let me know, if that is your plans

    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
    0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage

    Code:
    Advanced CPU Features:

    IOH Core 1.100v ..................... Auto is fine for no overclock, but 1.14-1.24 could help with stability and of course you may need that Plus some when overclocking later
