    Default GA-EP45T-UD3R (rev. 1.0) with Corsair TW3X4G1600C9DHX not work properly

    Hi,
    My rig (the relevant components i think):
    Mobo: GA-EP45T-UD3R (rev. 1.0) F6 bios
    CPU: Intel C2D E8400 (Wolfdale E0) @3.2GHz 8 x 400
    Mem: Corsair TW3X4G1600C9DHX

    I'd like to hear some settings suggestions from you, before I'll go deeper. I'm a newbie in overclocking. I'd like to reach the 1:1 FSB:RAM (1600MHz:1600MHz) ratio. Could you help me in this? I reached these values without to much effort ie.: I set the CPU freq to 400x8 and let nearly all options auto:
    1333MHz 9-9-9-24-2T (CPU-Z) ~1.520V(ET6 says) (I set these manually)
    1600Mhz 10-11-11-30-2T (CPU-Z) ~1.976V (ET6) (I let the options on auto)
    I can't reach the factory settings with 1.8V. I thinks i should set something else to get this work.

    I'll read all the instructions carefully and try after I'll got some settings that probably work. I'm a bit frustrated.
    What do you think wich one is better ram to this mobo: Corsair TW3X4G1600C9DHX or OCZ3RPR16004GK coz if the reseller will get back the corsair, I wanna buy the ocz, if it worth. I have short time to decide coz the reseller will answer me on Monday if they buy back the corsair.
    Sorry for my english.

    If you want your RAM running at 1600, this is a 1:2 ratio, ie your RAM will be double your FSB. The only way to get 1:1, would be to run the FSB at 800 MHz (3200MHz quad pumped), which is completely impossible.

    To run your RAM at its rated speed use the 4.00D multiplier.

    You have right, sorry. I want to my ram running at 1600 and my processor at 3200MHz with 400 MHz FSB and 8x multiplier like in the bios setup in my prev. post. I hope I'm not writing silly things this time.

    No need to apologise, and what you said wasn't silly. Everyone is used to using the term 1:1 ratio, because until DDR3 that's what was used with a 400 FSB to get DDR-800.

    1:1 and 1:2 are both symetric multipliers, so you'll get the desired effect from the 1:2 multi.


    I have read the Corsair data sheet for your RAM, and to run them at 1600MHz, you need to give them 1.8V. http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/TW3X4G1600C9DHX.pdf

    By changing your DRAM Voltage to = 1.8V and your System Memory Multiplier to 4.00D, you should be running the frequencies you want. All that will give you a 3200MHz CPU @ 400 FSB with 1600MHz RAM.

    I tried, but it wont boot up. That's why I think there are more settings I should change.

    I notice both CPU Clock Drive, and PCIE Clock Drive are on 700. This tells me you're using Failsafe Defaults. Before you continue, go to the BIOS main menu, choose "Load Optimized Defaults" and re-boot. Go straight back into the BIOS, and try these settings (values to check/change are in red):

    It's important you change these values after you load optimized defaults, as that may very well be the major source of the problem.

    Sorry, it doesn't work either. I tried the settings u gave, but it won't boot up. There must be something else. I'm too afraid of kill it so I don't try too hard I guess. I just don't know enough yet about it and I haven't got too much time to learn coz I have exams. Btw I realy appreciate your help.

    Not a problem. Good luck with the exams!

    Did you definitely load optimised defaults? Sorry to keep asking, but that's the most important step of all. If I over clock with clock drive settings of 700/700 I can't boot either.

    Could you test everything at stock and see if you can boot then? Load optimized defaults again, which should give you a 333 FSB at maximum multiplier, then the only things to change are DRAM voltage, main timings if needed and then set your DRAM Multiplier to give you 1600.

    Doing this will see if your RAM is capable of 1600MHz, or if it is possibly faulty.

    Note: I don't have a DDR3 boaard and am not sure if there is a DRAM multiplier bigger than 4.00, so you may not get 1600 at default FSB.

    I loaded optimised defaults. I checked the "CPU Clock Drive" and "PCI Express Clock Drive". They were at the suggested value. After that I pressed F10 (Save and Exit), and the machine restarted itself. Than I changed the settings to the sugested values, F10, but it wont booted up, just gave me some short beeping sound. As I remember when I set the MCH Freq Latch to 400, FSB to 333, CPU Clock ratio to 9, System Memory Multiplier to 4.00C/D the Memory Freq wasn't 1600. The board's manual says for the Memory Frequency: "The first memory frequency value is the normal operating frequency of the memory being used; the second is the memory frequency that is automatically adjusted according to the CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) and System Memory Multiplier settings."
    Just keep asking, I'm absolutelly OK with it;-)

    Are these normal, safe values on the picture when CPU 3200MHz@8*400 Memory 1333MHz 9-9-9-24? It's stable now.
