Thread: EP45-UD3R: need bios help

    Psycho, you have tried to get me to get real low on tRead with my 8GB of RAM and it always causes me to lock-up. I haven't had any stability with that much RAM below a tRead 9... is there some other association that would impact tRead that I am not grasping yet?

    Afer all the testing I've done the only major factor I've found that changes the stable tRead value is FSB speed. Are you stable at your default speeds with anything lower than 9?

    Before I got rid of a set of Corsair XMS2 6400C5 (5-5-5-18 @1.9v) I was able to test 8GB, and got it to DDR920 (3.22GHz CPU speed Q8200) with tRead=8. This was the same tRead I used on my current PC2-8500 at that bus speed. They also did tRead=6 at 333 FSB. I only ran Prime for a couple of hours as I had no intention of keeping the modules.

    It may be that the OP will find that they have to set higher, but to avoid loosening timings too much I suggested a value that's one up from what auto suggests for the 4GB. Hopefully it should boot, but if not it's definately a likely suspect to tweak, but not the first thing I'd do. I'd probably add a little more MCH, and if that didn't work I'd enter extremely loose sub-timings like 8-8-12-86-8 and set tRead to 12.

    You don't need to change your Vcore to anything else. Auto is fine if not over clocking. Each individual chip has its own VID value. This VID is the voltage auto will set at default speed. You have a chip with a low VID, that's a good thing.

    psycho101: i just changed to the setting you gave me. all it did was reboot over and over so i changed it back to default. you posted changes for pci express frequency to 100. performance to standard. system mem multiplier to 3.2. mch core 1.24. tWR - 8. tRTP - 78. command rate -2. channel a and b tRead value - 7. it didnt work. sigh...

    Try increasing tRead to 10 for now and see if that will boot. Also ty adding MCH voltage up to 1.34V ie try 1.26 first then 1.28V etc.

    If that fails, adjust MCH Ref down to 0.740V and see if that helps. It can be a little bit of trial and error. 8GB of RAM is a biatch to set up on some boards. Only one I've seen that handles it well is my cousins DFI Blood Iron (P45). She can pop 8GB of any old crappy RAM in there and it'll boot and be stable at full auto, nary a tweak needed. She can't get as high an over clock with her E7400 though, and it craps out on her at 411 FSB (boots to 460FSB on my board). E8500 @ 600FSB though, so it aint a bad board.

    When you adjust your MCH Ref, make sure to first set your vTerm to its normal value, then make your MCH Ref adjustment, then set the vTerm back to what you had it at.

    Lsdmeasap has a good post about Reference voltages here.

    I am having similar problems with my EP45-UD3R with Patriot Viper RAM 1066 and
    Q6600 intel processor with 4GB RAM and 1TB hard drive +

    If I change anything in Bios say to cruise it won't boot other settings cause it to loop
    and windows will not start with BSOD's the only way I've been able to get it to run is with no cruise, no turbo, x9 on CPU to make 2.4 GHZ . I've heard that this processor can be cranked up considerably with no harm - I don't know how. The multiplier won't budge past 9 and the memory is showing 800 MHZ - no where near 1066. Also, will my memory be damaged for having it at auto and not 2.1 as stated on RAM ? Also, How do I start my own thread( I tried to find the way and maybe I'm blind but....). As well, I haven't the first idea on how to or if I should tweak volatages. How do I know which BIOS version I have ? Which one is best for my board as I have downloaded F8 but not flashed.
    Thanks and sorry for jumping this thread - I'd be happy to set up my own if I knew how.

    @queeg: It's never a good idea to use those built in "set it and forget it" overclocking settings. For a quick introduction on how to overclock propperly, do a quick google search for some guides. It's very difficult for people to advise someone on how to overclock unless they know the basics first.

    Things you need to know include:
    How Processor speed is determined (FSB and multiplier)
    How RAM speed is determined (FSB and RAM divider)
    Safe voltage limits
    How to set RAM timings

    Have a read of HEXUS.net - Tech explained :: Intel Core 2 Duo basic overclocking guide for beginners : Page - 2/9
    and HOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - Guide v1.6.1

    This should give you a grasp for the basics. It's much easier if you understand these first, for your own sanity. It can be confusing and off putting for you as well as slow progress for others unless you understand the underlying principles.

    The New Thread button is at the top of the Gigabyte forum on the left just above the first thread. After you've done a little reading, please make a new thread and myself and others will be happy to help.

    I have read both guides now and created a thread - thread says I'm to research , but that being done - maybe you can weigh-in now ?
