    I have an official reply on this now, sorry for the wait!

    The error codes linked above are correct, the list is universal for the X58 chipset.

    bF/BF/6F Means unstable uncore, or before detecting uncore the system has hanged.

    So you need to look at adjusting your uncore (Multi or voltages). I suspect Multiplier, if you cannot get into the BIOS please clear your CMOS and then try. Your uncore Multi should be set to 2x your ram multiplier, you can go higher but for now use 2x since you are having issues.

    Hope that helps, if not please post your full settings you are trying that fail and I will try to help you out tonight when I get back in

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours

    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
    0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage

    Hmm, ya tell here to post. I mean no reason why she shouldn't?

    Ya work is back to normal now, I would have been back last week if it had not been for my board issues.

    Sorry about the PM's, still have not go there. I hope to get in and go through them here shortly then you will be able to PM me. They just stack up so quick in there, I almost had to disable it once but I thought that would be rude so I didn't

    Left 4Ghz for the time being.

    Working with a friendly summer OC @3,36GHz for now what with all the warm weather and temps in Greece.

    Here is what i changed

    Advanced Voltage Control:

    CPU

    Load Line Calibration ................. [Enabled]
    CPU Vcore ............................. 1.125


    Everything else missing, on default or auto.
    With xmp enabled i get 1.65v and 8-8-8-24 timings just fine with no manual tuning.

    Results in the attached image with prime running in the back.

    Any suggestions, specially in volts would be appreciated. Maybe some need a lower value than auto.
    Auto on vcore gave me 1,36v! Hit 95C on the first 20 seconds in prime :)

    Any suggestions on hyper-threading? Since i m not running any benchmarks should it be on? (as i understand more volts are needed when its on... )

    Default Re: X58-UD5 6F error code

    Thanks for your useful posts. I have a similar problem... I have built a system with this mboard and find the boot cycles to the 6F error code then switches off, then repeats...
    I have tried to get into the BIOS but can't get in (hitting del)...
    I have rebuilt the system once thinking it may be a short on the MB / case, but same problem.
    My system is as follows:
    Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 | Core i7 920 | Corsair Dominator 3x2Gb 1333MHz | Gigabyte HD4870| Corsair TX650w | Seagate 500Gb | XP | LianLi PC8 case
    I'm pretty new to this sort of thing, though have successfully built a couple of PCs based on Gigabyte MB previously...
    Advice gratefully received!

    Please try clearing your CMOS using this method, and/or your clear CMOS button. Method is in post #2 >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Then try to start the board with all three ram sticks installed, if no luck try again with only one stick in the first white slot. When using three they must be in the 3 white slots, labeled as DDR1/3/5.

    It could be due to your BIOS not supporting your memory, some memory will not start at all or correctly without the latest BIOSes as there is some incompatibility issues with certain IC Chips. I have a set or two myself that need a certain BIOS or above to run properly. So if you can try to borrow a single cheap 1.5V stick, or you may have to go buy one to see if this is the issue.

    Other than that, are you SURE there are NO bent pins in the CPU Socket? They are VERY Delicate and I have seen this occur many times and cause similar symptoms. Sometimes the user accidentaly bends the pins, other times not (As I have received two boards myself with pins I do not believe I bent at all). So just something else you can check.

    Also, if you do get the CPU out and look, then please try the board outside of the case and OFF the motherboard tray while you already have the CPU out. Then place the board on a wooden table or cardboard box. Try this with ONLY CPU/Heatsink, one stick of ram in slot one, and one GFX Card. Nothing else, this will rule out shorts

    If no luck still, please try the Intel Stock Heatsink, as I have also helped users who had shorts caused by various heat sinks and or back plates.

    I really am leaning toward your ram not being compatible with the BIOS the board shipped with though, often they have a older BIOS and the new ones add many memory enhancements and compatibility fixes. So if you have a friend with some cheaper DDR3 great, if not you may need to head up to the store and find a cheap 1GB stick, most any should be fine as long as it is cheaper 1.5V type. It is some of the newer 1.65V types, that have certain IC's in them that cause the issues and I believe your ram may be made with these chips.

    Good luck in testing and keep us posted. BF or 6F code is listed above, and is a uncore error which relates to memory and memory settings. The Uncore freezes before it's check can complete due to memory errors.

    Thanks Lsdmeasap, I'll give these steps a try. The memory was in 3 2GB sticks in white slots 1,3,5. I've removed 2 sticks (slots 3,5) - no change. The Corsair memory is XMS Series TR3X6G1333C9, recommended by Corsair to deliver "outstanding performance in the latest generation of X58 DDR3-based motherboards. It has been tested extensively in popular X58 motherboards to ensure compatibility and performance at its rated speed. This memory has been verified to operate at 1333MHz at latencies of 9-9-9-24 at 1.50V VDIMM." This is the memory Corsair recommend for this motherboard model.

    Gigabyte themselves don't list this memory as they haven't tested all brands, but have tested Corsair CM3X1024-1333C9DHX and list as compatible.

    I've switched the memory modules around in case one or two were faulty - no change. I'll try a new memory module, one listed on Gigabyte's list, and see how that fares... thanks for the tip!

    I pressed the Clear CMOS button for about a minute - no change. Some people suggest you need to short the CMOS for an hour to clear it, though I can't understand why pressing the button for longer periods would make any difference - surely it either clears or not?

    I haven't checked the pins yet - but was VERY careful when installing... still, will check... will update you when further tests completed.
    Thanks for you help!

    UPDATE: Thanks for the heads up about the memory. I bought a 2GB stick of Kingston memory KVR1333D3N9/2GB and problem solved! Well, there's one thing that still puzzles me - in the BIOS (MIT) it shows the memory frequency as 1066MHz... I thought that it should be 1333MHz... so, am not really sure why that is as I think it sets this automatically...
    Do you know, is there a way to get the system to work with the 6GB of Corsair memory? The Kingston stuff is listed as compatible on the Gigabyte website, while the Corsair is not. Though the Corsair website says that this memory is compatible with this mboard!?
