    Unhappy Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R Rebooting problems

    Hi all, its my first post here..

    I recently purchased this mobo GA-EP45-UD3R Rev 1.1, which came pre-installed with F-9 Bios from factory.
    Cpu is a q6600 2.4 (go stepping), with a Scythe Katana 2 CPU Cooler,
    Ram is a Twin2x4096 4GB (2X2GB) DDR2 PC2-6400C5 800MHZ 5-5-5-18 1.80V Corsair XMS2.
    Case is an Antec Sonata III with a quiet NorthQ Black 850W Modular psu.
    GPU is an ATI 4670 quiet version.
    Running everything on default stock settings.Haven't touched or changed the bios at all.

    Installed Vista x64, OS read cpu and ram fine, rates my ram at 5.6..
    Casually it goes into a recycling power loop, it restarts again and works for a couple of hours and does the restarting loop again..

    I had everything in this setup running fine prior to replacing with this mobo,

    I'm not really looking to overclock, i just need the best default/manual optimal settings, so i can leave my pc 24/7 on if i need to.
    Stability is my first concern, Performance is the 2nd.

    Can someone please help in what settings to change in the bios, as i have a strong feeling my ram options need adjusting, but me looking at these bios with so many options makes me feel kind of stupid..

    Never owned a gigabyte mobo before.. I have decided to give this mobo a last chance and to play around with bios settings before i go back with asus.Still hope i haven't done a mistake in buying this board..

    Waiting for ur replies.

    Check the BIOS default DRAM Voltage is set 1.5v. Try setting your DRAM voltage to the Corsair spec 1.8v, maybe even a tad more if needed.

    Also, everytime i power up, i can hear a short single beep coming from motherboard,
    it happens only when i power up, not when i just restart..

    is it normal or something i have to fix as well ?

    I have the same board.
    I notice your on bios F9( so I assume you updated the bios?)
    Load and save optimum default settings in the bios options and reboot.that is what your on really anyway.

    If the problem persists id start with the memory .. set it to standard performance not turbo and see if it goes away.
    Or instead of that if you want to keep the turbo option you could enter the Dram voltage manually put in 1.84 or 1.86 to allow for voltage drop.

    If neither of those do it for you try enabling llc (load line calibration) in the bios. .11v is a fairly large vdroop even with stepping etc enabled.
    u posted 1.275 V for your cpu and cpuz shows 1.168V.

    The single beep is standard on most pc's .if you have a spkr connected as far as I know.

    thanks.. did the changes and so far so good..
    do u guys think that with my setup, fan, case, cpu cooler,ram i can overclock it a bit in a stable way? if yes what settings do u reccomend me to change? and how can i test afterwards?

    Cooling is ok, at least better than stock and might get you to 3.2GHz. I'd test stability now if I were you, before overclocking.

    Run Prime 95 on the Blend torture test for 12 hours, and if it passes, you can move on to over clock. Watch the CPU temp during this. Use RealTemp to monitor actual core temps.

    You don't really want to be over 65c on both cores while CPU is at 100%.
