    I suppose I should have phrased that "I wonder what the real defect" rate is?
    Your recipe comment I'm sure answers many issues posted here.

    Thanks Artdrivers,
    I had a look at that, I've just updated to SP2 on Vista64 - so that wasn't the problem.

    One thing I have found however, was this link that Vista "problem reports & solutions" pointed me towards. It's an updated driver for Intel:" something to do with the 6x SATA controllers. Anyway, I ran and installed the exe file and to my surprise my system has not frozen once since. I wonder if it's possible the older driver didn't like something about the 8Gb DDR3 or there was a problem with the OS? The only other thing I had changed just prior to running this was changing my Static tRead value from [7] to [10] within BIOS.

    It's possible that the Intel driver was entirely responsible for the random BSOD's and that the RAM was not at fault. It's also possible that reducing RAM speed reduced the instance of driver crashes. Again, this points to the RAM being fine, and it's more to do with the actual flaw/incompatibility in the driver.

    Hopefully your problem is sorted. After a week or so of no BSOD's I'd breathe a sigh of relief, but until then, do as you have been, and keep an eye on things.

    Hi again Psycho101,

    I was thinking If the system remains stable I might return the Channel A & B Static tRead Value back to [7]. One thing I thought I'd run past you is the reast of the memory settings: their currently set at 9 9 9 24 and 2T.

    Looking at the timings Table thru Gigabyte's ET6, with a freq of 667Mhz they are shown as 8 9 9 25. Should I change my BIOS settings to this or just leave the settings as they are? I'm a bit lost with some of the BIOS settings. All I wish to achieve is a good stable system running at 100% performance. I'm not interested in overclocking things & pushing the envelope with things. I'd appreciate any assistance you could give me in what the ideal settings would be.

    Regards,

    Mick

    P.S. I got another reply back from Gigabyte and their thoughts, given my problem (& the MoBo wanting to run the DDR3 at 1.76v) is a possible hardware problem with the MoBo. I've noticed on MSY's latest pricelist, they no longer stock the EP45T-UD3P. I wonder if there has been a batch of bad boards.

    Looking on the Kingston website, the modules should be Cas9-9-9-24. You may have success lowering to CAS8, but it's not certain. I would leave them at CAS9 until you've assessed stability, then experiment with changing them.

    You can lower to CAS8 only if you decrease memory frequency to 1066MHz or less but otherwise stick to 9-9-9-24. The best I've achieved with KVR was 8-8-8-20 @ 1066MHz with tRD=7 but on X48/X58 boards (not on EP45T).

    Check out the information in this post.
    While it deals with a specific model of Corsair DDR3 memory, it appears that some/many P45 motherboards have issues with running some memory models at full rated speeds.

    You might be able to get specific help or recommendations at the support forum for your brand/model of memory.

    After I RMAed my EP45T-UD3P I wrote detailed letter to my supplier of how I tested.
    Two weeks later they called me saying they replicated the freezes but got NO IDEA how to fix it. Now they are sending this board back to Taiwan. I guess this will conclude my experience with P45 boards. And to be on the safe side I'll skip all Px5 boards in the future.

    Hello All,

    I'm back again after a lengthy absence (and frustration!). My system buggered up my OS after another failed boot, so I thought I'd try something different.

    Maybe someone out there can explain the reason for this, maybe there are a few reasons, who knows, my indepth knowledge re MoBo's & the intracacies of DDR3 etc are limited.

    My system appears to be somewhat STABLE running with 8Gb of DDR3. It has been so now for about 3 days. This is what I've done:

    Thrown away Vista64 and loaded up Windows 7 RC 64Bit, AND, using Gigabyte's ET6 software, using 'Quick Boost' running my CPU @ 4.05Ghz with a FSB of 1800MHz. I immediately noticed no more lag in mouse cursor and no more random freezes. The system seems a LOT more responsive. I also noticed the DDR3 is now running at 1.616Volts (a lot better than the previous 1.73 Volts) and at 600MHz, instead of 667MHz.

    When the CPU isn't working that hard it throttles back to 2.7GHz (x 6.0), rather than running at 4.05GHz (x 9.0) all the time.

    I thought, given that the CPU's running a bit harder now, I went out & purchased a Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. It's extreemly quiet and the CPU's running at around 29 to 30 degrees C at idle and around 50 or so when working hard.

    I'm thinking my success not is twofold. The change in OS (never liked Vista64), but probably more importantly the different freqs for the FSB and DDR3. My hardware obviously prefers these. I'd welcome any feedback from those more skilled than I.....

    Regards,

    Mick
