    Default Issues booting on x58-UD5 (OC)

    Hello, I have been researching overclocking (as a nice member here suggested) and I started to take the plunge into the process. When I first purchased my computer, I was in a rush to OC my system and was having a dual boot issue on start up; I would hit the power button, fans spool, power supplied then the machine would shut off and start up again just fine (problem stopped when reverted to stock settings). The same gentleman who suggested I read some more, told me to update my bios to F7; as it should fix the problem - - to no avail, my system sometimes starts just fine, and sometimes it tries 6 or even 7 times to boot, before it resets itself to stock settings in the bios. Please help me figure this out, I think it's a voltage problem, but dont quite understand what is needed in the fields.

    System Spec:
    x58-UD5
    core i7 920 OC'd to 3.6ghz
    RAM DDR3-1333mhz


    Settings BIOS F7:
    Base Clock 190
    Multiplier 19
    Hyper Threading OFF
    Turbo Mode OFF
    ALL Voltages AUTO

    I am also not interested in playing with RAM OC.

    Thanks,

    Justin.

    Please give me your Full settings and a link to your ram or the model # and I can try to advise you on this.

    I can say at any overclock a double or triple bootup will be normal, and is normal most anytime you are making BIOS changes. But yes, it will always double or triple boot at startup if overclocked past a certain point (?), so don't worry about this

    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

    Sorry, nope it has to be done manually. You can print that out from a notepad, or just write down your settings manually on paper and then come back and fill it in.

    I Suggest you update to the latest Beta BIOS, there has been memory enhancements added that may help with your issues.

    Can you please do that first, and also link me to your exact ram or give me the model # off the sticks.

    Then I can give you settings to try and get you going. I do see a few things that may be wrong, but cannot advise until you link me to your ram or give me the model #.

    Latest Beta is posted here (F8e)

    And here is a Qflash guide if you are unsure of how to use Qflash, or you can flash Via Floppy or Bootable USB using FlashSPI

    Memory link as requested:

    Corsair 3GB XMS3-1333 PC3-10666 Core? i7 Triple Channel DDR3 Kit (3 x 1GB) at Memory Express Computers

    Let me run the new BIOS, I'll post in 8+ hours with results.

    OK, thanks for the link. So you mean you are going to flash the new BIOS and then test and report back in 8 hours?

    Just wondering if that is what you meant, if so that's fine I'll get you a reply around then or if not around the same time or earlier tomorrow night.

    That ram should be fine in your board, I have seen several people use it without issues, a few however did find that they needed to bump the voltage up to 1.6V @ 1333Mhz so this could be part of your issue, if the new BIOS does not help

    So once you get back or after you get the new BIOS installed I will give you some settings to try, mainly more ram voltage manually set and QPI/Vtt voltage manually set

    Please also download and run CPU-Tweaker and open sub timings, then post a screenshot here. Do this at any of the speed/settings that you can boot into windows at, just want to check to be sure tRFC is not actually being set to 60

    Thanks, hopefully we can get you going. YOu have ran memtest86+ on each stick one by one right, at stock speeds? If not please try to do that as well.

    I have not played with any settings other than:

    Multiplier / BCLK / Turbo / Hyperthreading IN BIOS.

    Also, I have not ran memtest86+ I am unsure of this procedure.

    Also, I had the business that I purchased the Motherboard / CPU / RAM, test the ram before I took it home - not sure if that helps.
