    Why leave this thread? Sorry I am confused about that comment? Did I offend you, if so I am very sorry and in no way did I mean to.

    We can help you here with any issues you may have with your Gigabyte board, no need to leave.


    To use the template's please copy and paste it into a notepad file, then save to your desktop. Then you can either write down your settings on paper from the BIOS and reenter into the template and post it back here via copy/paste, or you can print out the template from the notepad file and go into your BIOS and write down your settings then fill out the template in your notepad file or copy/paste here and then fill in your settings.

    Please do not use Word or any office program as they will add additional text formatting and styles and your settings may not fit within the forums character limits when you try to post them back here.

    Notepad is best and easiest to do this with

    No. There was no offence at all. You have been very helpful.

    I meant I should leave this thread because I thought the original post was about the RAID configuration causing stability issues. Once I figured out that in my case it's the memory configurations, I thought I should move to a different thread. but...

    Now that I look again I see the subject of the thread is about stability so it should be fine to finish up here on this thread.

    I will post the settings based on your template. I'm reluctant to change the settings back to what caused the crashing because after rebooting from a blue screen, the RAID 10 starts the verify and repair routine which can take hours.

    I'll let you know the default setting and the XMP setting (but won't boot with them). Then you can tell me what to change to make it work better.

    Thanks.

    Ahh, ok! Glad to know I did not upset you somehow!

    It is fine to carry on in this thread if you like. I know what you mean about RAID 10 verifying, is this just a storage array and not your OS? If so you can just remove the drives (Unplug them from the board I mean) until you feel you are done or stable enough to plug them back in.

    This will not hurt anything, but you DO HAVE to be sure you plug the cables/drives back in the exact same ports. So you may want to label them.

    Sounds like a plan, please do update to the latest BIOS first. If you already have, sorry, you can ignore me on that then

    The RAID 10 is just data BUT..... I have set up Windows 7 to put the User data on the D: drive.


    Below are my settings put into your template.

    First I list the standard non XMP settings (Stable) followed by the unstable XMP enabled settings (when XMP changed
    something - marked with a "*")

    Also, I noticed that settings are repeated in the bios (seen in more than one place). Some Items within the
    advanced sections are also shown above the advanced sections. This just adds to the confusion but it seems like
    changing one does change the other.

    The other thing I note below is how enabling the XMP profile shows higher voltages but those same voltages are NOT
    represented in the advanced voltage control settings.

    OK here are the settings:

    CPU: i7 920 LGA 1366 2.66 GHz
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EX58 UD5 rev 1.0

    I do not think you are going to get the ram to run at 1600
    1333 is stock i would start there with these settings
    here are my settings with same ram
    only differance is I have EX58 Extreme board other then waterblock boards are same so setting should work for you

    CAS Latency Time .......................... 8
    tRCD ...................................... 8
    tRP ....................................... 8
    tRAS ...................................... 24

    DRAM Voltage .............................. 1.640v

    Advanced DRAM Features:
    Performance Enhance ....................... [Expert]
    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P) ............ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD) ............ 1333

    I have no issues with 12GB at 1600Mhz, none at all even with the same settings as 6GB. Of course I do not use this ram though.

    I do not suggest XMP at all, and you can ignore any XMP Voltages too as they are useless. And Auto QPI/Vtt as suggested above is not going to work (maybe at 1333Mhz, but no need to run that way anyhow)

    You are using Fail Safe settings!

    Please start over, and load optimized defaults and save apply F10, then reboot back to the BIOS and try again or give me your new full BIOS settings and I will advise back.

    If you are unsure of the steps to load optimized safely please read this, and especially read this if you are using RAID >>

    sorry those are not Auto setting i forgot to remove the Auto from the end fixed now


    Lsdmeasap what ram do you have if you dont mind
    im useing 2 sets of
    CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D - Retail

    i was thinking it was because the ram is not matching sets is why i cant get it to 1600 with one set its no problem

    i think youll need more qpi than what your using,i use 1.3000 with just 6gb,also cant you set your cpu voltage to run on the "normal" voltage setting? have you set system performance enhance to standard? i would try atleast 1.38000 qpi with 12gb

    Definitely you should use matching memory!

    I use Mushkin and Crucial DDR3 Memory myself, reviews of each is in my signature

    I didn't think I was using fail safe. It may have happened when the system was booting with XMP. It could have defaulted to fail safe when there were possible stability problems (maybe during boot up).

    I will redo the numbers after I set it up for optimized and post them again. Thanks for the help.
