    Default GA-EP45-UD3LR - HyperX Timings @ 1066

    Hello all,

    I have been looking through various post here and at other sites, looking for the optimal settings to get my new Kingston Hyper X DDR2 PC2-8500 4GB Ram, operating at 1066Mhz.

    By default the mobo is setting the Ram automatically using SPD.

    I have run a compelte memtestx86 on the ram and all test completed fine.

    From Kingstons documentation the RAM should operate at 5-5-5-15 @2.2v

    I have changed a number of settings around in the BIOS, but having no joys.

    Has someone got a similar build and been able to get the RAM operating at PC8500??

    My spec of the machine is as follows:

    Intel Core 2 Duo E7500, 2.93Mhz, 1066FSB - Not OC'ing any CPU settings yet.

    Kingston 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 HyperX Memory CL5 2.2V

    Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3LR iP45 Socket 775

    Thanks

    Your memory's SPD should have several columns, one for each programmed setting. Using the 533 column, look at the specified volts for this speed, it's probably 2.20 volts. You must set DRAM Voltage = 2.20 volts for your system to boot at 1066 speeds.

    If your ram still won't run at 1066 do the following:

    Load OPTIMIZED settings in the main bios screen.
    Save settings and exit (F10).
    Enter the bios and set the following:
    PCI Express Frequency(Mhz)............: [100]
    Extreme Memory Profile(X.M.P.)........: [Disabled]
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch................: [Auto]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)........: [4.00A]
    >>>>> Standard Timing Control
    x CAS Latency Time..........5...: [ 5]
    x tRCD ...........................5...: [ 5]
    x tRP.............................5...: [ 5]
    x tRAS...........................18...: [15]
    >>> DRAM
    DRAM Voltage...........1.800V.........: [2.200V] <-- or the voltage required by the SPD for 533 memory speeds

    This should have you running at your memory's rated 1066 speeds.

    If you're doing any overclocking, you'll need to make additional settings.

    Settings seem to work, tried these before.

    But problem is now is that Vista x64 will not boot.

    Get the boot manager screen with message saying Winload.exe is missing.

    I have seen previous messages about disabling digital signing of drivers, this seems to have no effect.

    Have not run repair yet as want to hold of on this.

    If I revert memory timings back to bios default, OS boots fine.

    Thanks

    Hello, I have place a question similar, but with other words and a diferent board.
    I have the same case as you but my board is a EP45-UD3r rev. 1.1 and E7400, Kingston hyper X 1066 - KHX8500D2K2/2GN x 2 (4 Gb total) and my problem is also setting up the timings and the voltage. Should I change this or should I leave it all auto? I do not want to make OC or something similar, I just want my system to work as good as can. Can some one helo me changing voltage, I now how to change timing but not voltage, since I do not what I have to change exactly.
    Thanks and sorry if this is not in good place.

    I followed these steps.

    1. Clear CMOS

    2. Go to BIOD (Hit Del)

    3. Configure BIOS settings, personal chices selected here, such as disbale coms port etc..

    4. Once changed, save settings to CMOS, save in slot 1 and call base. Just saves a bundle of time when you change timings etc.

    5. Reboot and go back in to BIOS.

    6. Got to the the first page called MIT - From here you can change clock speeds.

    7. Follow steps as per ProfJim has listed here.
    Enter the bios and set the following options:
    PCI Express Frequency(Mhz)............: [100]
    Extreme Memory Profile(X.M.P.)........: [Disabled] - Option called something else on my board and you can not disable, just set to normal.
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch................: [Auto]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)........: [4.00A] - Setting based on your CPU FSB. My CPU's FBS is 266, so 266x4.00 = 1064 (As close as I can get to 1066)
    >>>>> Standard Timing Control - Change setting to manual to change below optoins in red.
    x CAS Latency Time..........5...: [ 5]
    x tRCD ...........................5...: [ 5]
    x tRP.............................5...: [ 5]
    x tRAS...........................18...: [15]
    >>> DRAM
    DRAM Voltage...........1.800V.........: [2.200V]

    8. Save to setttings, board will reset and then should POST and boot.

    If you have any problems with the settings the board will keep cycling through POST, you will need to clear the CMOS to stop this and revert back to default BIOS settings.

    To do this remove pwoer from the PC then place a jumper over the pins which are placed to the left of the CMOS battery. It should have on the board some text reading CLR CMOS. Leave jumper in place for about 10 seconds and then remove.

    Power back on and hit Del to get to bios. Press F12 and load Base biod settings. Reboot and machine should POST and boot to your OS.

    My problem is that it POSTs then trys to boot Vista, but now my machine seems to thinks its got corruption with the winload.exe file.

    So Skookumpost, I should only change timig? I have alredy change this timing to 5-5-5-15, but the voltage, should I also chage it? I think it is in 2.1 or something similar. In my bios I can read something about 1066, that means all is correct that bios recognice 1066? All other settings are auot even the part where you say
    "Extreme Memory Profile(X.M.P.)........: [Disabled] - Option called something else on my board and you can not disable, just set to normal.

    Thanks for your help.

    Change the memoery Voltage to 2.1.

    Then use CPU-Z to verfiy timings in use.

    You MUST load OPTIMZED bios settings first, save settings and exit, then enter the bios again and make your changes.

    If it still doesn't work at 1066 you can:
    1) run memory at 800MHz, and possibly with tighter memory timings for nearly the same performance as 1066 at stock 5-5-5-15 settings (using the 3.00A System Memory Multiplier).
    2) Loosen the primary memory timings to 6-6-6-18 and see if the error message goes away.
    3) See if your system works with a differenct set of 1066 memory.

    Are either of you running the latest bios version?

    If not, you'll probably need to flash your bios using the procedures in Lsdme's Bios Flashing Guide.

    Use the forum Search feature with:
    XXXXXX bios template
    where XXXXXX is your mobo model.

    Copy the appropriate template into your plain text editing program (e.g. Notepad), then fill in the values from your bios and post them so that we can check for any incorrect settings.
    Make sure that you specify [AUTO] where appropriate.

    It's best if both of you have run Memtest86+ from a bootable CD/DVD for 6 - 8 hours or longer to verify that you don't have memory problems at 1066 speeds.

    Hello, yes I am running last version F9, and also I have already run this test before when the first crash began all was correct, and it was at 1066.
    I will do waht you say about Bios and I will come back.

    I had previously ran memtest when running at 800MHz.

    Just tweaked timings and then run memtest at 1066.

    Shocking results - Looks as if I have faulty RAM...
