    Hi Psycho101,

    I changed those setting to the BIOS with the 8Gb installed and I couldn't get it to POST. It gave me an error & stalled. My case doesn't have a speaker installed, so I don't get any audiable prompts.

    I hit the 'reset' button, then F12 to Boot from CDR. It then diverted me to Xpress Recovery2 & stalled again.

    I shutdown PC, then removed the 4th stick of DDR3. So far it's loaded the OS, performed system updates & is in the process of 'shutting down' (taking forever.......). Yep got Vista 64 HP back on-line!

    So, to date, I can only get this MB working semi stable woth 6GB of DDR3. What a huge disappointment!

    Will those settings you gave me be OK running 3 sticks of DDR3?

    I'm starting to run out of ideas (and patience!). Any ideas?

    Regards,

    Mick

    Those settings will be OK for 6GB, however you'll have no dual channel for the lonesome stick.

    Hopefully Lsdmeasap will be able to post again soon, and may suggest something that could help.

    Personally I'd be enclined to do two things. First, if all advice fails, I'd contact Gigabyte to see if they can help, last resort do an RMA.

    If the replacement board doesn't help or the advice they give doesn't work, I'd run 4GB of ram, and put the other 2x 2GB on eBay. Not ideal, but unless you do alot of heavy photo work, 3D rendering, or run virtual machines, you'll currently get no benefit from 8GB.

    Hi again Psycho101,

    I took your advice and leaned towards the MB having a problem.

    I contacted MSY & Gigabyte again. This time I spoke with someone at MSY who suggested I bring in the PC. I did so today with photos of screenshot errors & e-mails from Gigabyte. GB incidently state that the MB should work fine with the Kingston DDR3 with 'default' BIOS settings.

    The Tech (MSY) there was fantastic and changed over the MB on the spot.

    Just got it home and updated the BIOS to F7 then rebooted with the HDD connected (and fingers crossed!).... It POST and kicked straight into Vista 64 HP without a hitch!

    Hopefully it will remain stable and I can commence loading my applications now.

    Thanx heaps for your assistance..... Greatly appreciated! I'll let you know if I have any further problems.

    Mick

    Great! An 8GB RAM problem that's hopefully solved.

    Seems like you may have had a rare defective board. I hope it stays stable.

    My joy was short lived. My system is better than before - but randomly freezing. It's extreemly frustrating (for a new system). I've applied all settings recommended by Psycho69 except one. Looking at CPUID DRAM Voltage (in AUTO) is sitting at 1.76 V. When selecting a manual setting at 1.5 V the ststem wouldn't even POST. So I returned the setting to auto.

    I'd appreciate any advice anyone out there may be able to send my way. In the meantime, looks like I'm stuck to my laptop :-(

    Problem possibly solved!!! (Stable for 2Hrs at least..) I've increased MCH Core from 1.240V to 1.260V. So far so good.

    I'll post again & let everyone know how this adjustment goes.....

    Hi Mick,
    I'm sure KVR1333D3N9 has problem with EP45T-UD3P. I was battling it for 5 months and finally had to buy different ram. Also I've tried it on Gigabytes' GA-EPX48T-DQ6 and ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 without ANY issues WHATSOEVER. And No, don't leave ddr voltage on auto cause this ram should be on 1.5 +-0.075 - so 1.76V is in the danger zone. Instead try to up your MCH voltage to boot. My problems with EP45T-UD3P were only the random freezes but even the ridiculously relaxed timings and excessive overvoltages did not made them go away (that's of course without any overclock). Maybe another 100 users have to complain to GB in order to draw their attention towards KVR1333D3N9 issue (btw it's in the QVL!!!!) and until then my best offer is to switch ram and use your old one in another rig. And you may find setting that work for a month or so but at the and you'll have you crash and freeze back.

    Hi Comers,

    The problem I habe with the MoBo is that if I try & manually set the DRAM Voltage to 1.5V it won't even POST. I thought 1.76 V was a bit high for an AUTO setting. I was thinking of the possibility that 4 sticks of DDR3 loaded down the MOBo sufficiently enough that the DRAM auto raised the voltage to 1.76 V so that the DDR3 themselves received 1.5 V (operating). I'm not sure where the Gigabyte ET6 Software & BIOS get their voltage reading from - whether it's from the 'power supply rail' from the MoBo or taken directly from the DDR3 whilst operating. I note your signature has ur DRAM @ 1.7 V for 2 sticks. The general feeling I get from most is that 4 sticks of DDR3 will load up any MoBo, so the additional voltage is required.

    Nischi, my system has been stable since my last post & has been running overnight with Tversity & utorrent running. Fingers crossed!

    Any thoughts appreciated in relation to my DRAM Voltage.
