    Default GIGABYTE-UD5-X58 motherboard failures, Is my problem well known here?

    Dear Gigabyte Support Team.

    I have been trying to look for a good Gigabyte forum, and it seems I finally have found one.

    My problem is huge and very hard to describe. Well it all started the days after I bought this mobo, and it has only gotten worse in my opinion.

    When my motherboard is running completely default BIOS setup it runs fine. Even tho just if I change the BLCK frequency 5-10 the motherboard starts to complain. Sometimes the motherboard can run fine for a couple of days with the new preferences without anything happens. But then suddenly one day the motherboard either restart the computer in the middle of a game or in windows, and sometimes it just doubble boots alot of times before it says "DUAL BIOS - Press Enter to get default settings"

    I'm not a complete noob to overclocking and recording to sites, it should be piece of a cake to overclock this mobo and CPU. It just seems to be happening for me at all.

    I am running the latests BIOS from this site F8f, and I have alrdy tested my memory with MEMTEST or something called like that.

    Here is my setup:
    i7 920
    GIGABYTE-UD5-X58
    OCZ 1866 1.65V 6gb
    1000 Corsair HX
    Corsair H50 water pump
    Raptor HLFS WD 150gb HD

    I hope this is enough information for u guys. Btw. I have set my memory to 1.66V and CPU to 1.3V. Hope anyone can help me, because how can i RMA a mobo that can run fine for a couple a days and then major crash? The company i bought it from im sure cant run a test for 3 days :(((((

    Cheers

    Please dont double post, its very likely to be against forum rules.

    Could you post what settings you have in BIOS? That will provide info on what might be the problem.

    see if this is any help. MEMORY TIMINGS are another thing you should post.

    M.I.T:
    CPU Clock ratio = 20
    Advanced CPU Features:
    CPU Clock ratio = 20
    Turbo = Disabled
    Cores Enabled = All
    Multi-Threading = Enabled
    Advanced halt [C1E] = Disabled (can be enabled, but stops chokes noise)
    C3/C6/C7: Disabled (same, can be enabled)
    Thermal monitor = Disabled (by default)
    CPU EIST Function = Disabled
    Virtualisation = Enabled
    BI-Directional PROCHOT = Enabled

    (back to main M.I.T Page)
    QPI Link Speed = Auto (4.8Ghz)

    UnCore/QPI Features:
    QPI Link Speed = Auto (4.8Ghz)
    UnCore Frequency = 20
    Isochronous Support = Enabled

    (back to main M.I.T Page)
    Base Clock Frequency (BCLK) Control = Enabled
    Frequency = 133
    (dont touch the Advanced Clock control page)

    Peformance enhance = Standard
    System Memory Multiplier = 10

    DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD)
    CAS = 7
    TRCD = 7
    TRP = 7
    TRAS = 20
    Command rate CMD = 1

    Dram voltage 1.58, all other voltages set to normal, and be sure peformance enhance is on Standard.

    Thanks Dbee.

    Btw "all other voltages set to normal". Do you mean they are set to normal or do u mean they are set to auto? What is a normal voltage?

    Btw I got OCZ Plantinum 9-9-9-28 1866 mhz RAM and no matter what timings I give them my PC ****s up.

    Do you increase the voltage when tightening timings?

    i have my regular ocz1333's running at 1440 mhz with 8 8 8 24 timings. I was using the manufacturers 7 7 7 20's and all it would do is fail. put ur ram voltage to 1.64 as well . let us know if this helps. believe me, i was this close to stapling my ud3r to the cardboard 25 yards downrange and put some 223's in it. glad i didnt. also , you may want to try a non-beta bios, im not a computer whizz , but beta is beta.

    did u try disconnecting any wires leading from the mobo to the case, like case fans connected to the mobo directly like the sysfan1 sysfan2 pwrfan1 pwrfan2? only one i have connected is the cpufan.
