    Default EP45-UD3P Stuttering problem - Help!

    Ok, quick history: I originally had an EP45-DS3R but it took a hit when the HSF came loose off of my CPU and the CPU overheated. Then after that my system would freeze/reboot/not boot at all randomly. So after days of testing, I determined it was the MB so upgraded to the EP45-UD3P rev1.6 (FB), using the same CPU as before. (E8500)

    No other component has changed out in my system, everything is exactly the same other than the MB. I had to reinstall drivers and all the wonderful Windows related stuff you have to do when you replace a MB and had to reboot about 6 times to get every piece of hardware recognized again and installed. Ever since I installed this UD3P, however, I'm getting this weird system stutter going on that is every 10-20 seconds. It's really annoying and I can't figure out what is causing it.

    I watch the task manager and watched the CPU cycles and then I move my mouse around the screen as I watch so I can see it stutter. My hope was to see a process pop up to the top of the list that would cause this as I see the mouse stutter across the screen, but nothing is coming up. The stuttering seems to be independent of any processes running.

    When I installed the board and went into BIOS, I tweaked the CPU/memory and boot priority to the way it was on the old board, and that was all I touched in the BIOS. Is there something in there that could be causing this problem?

    Any help on isolating this is greatly appreciated. I didn't have this problem with the old board and as I've stated, I have virtually the exact same machine as before except for the MB, so it has to be something with the MB. Thanks!

    There is a large difference between those boards. So using your older settings wont be the same. Have you ran stability tests lately to be sure your memory or CPU is not failing and you need to adjust your settings?

    I ran a plethora of tests when my system was freezing with the old board trying to nail down what the problem was. Everything came back negative. I also had an extra ram stick and video card that I swapped in to make sure it wasn't either of them causing the problem, and that didn't help with the freezing. That's how I determined it was the MB causing the problem, it was the only hardware I didn't have a spare for. From what I read online if it were the CPU it would be either working fine or not working at all, not partially working but freeze from time to time.

    The only BIOS settings I tweaked were to get the CPU to 3.16ghz and the ram to go to 1066, I didn't change anything else.

    Ya it would either work or not.

    Sounds like it could be possibly driver or program issue then if you are stable. I'd do a clean install, you should have anyway coming from the other board instead of bringing in the troubled install.

    Gah a clean install of windows? That bites. I don't have the time to do that, too much crap installed and what not. Technically I didn't have a "troubled install" as you say because it was a hardware problem. I didn't have this issue with the other board even when it was freezing up randomly on me.

    What ticks me off about this is Windows assumes this is a brand new build even though the only component that changed out was the MB, and so it insists on installing all the drivers for everything again.

    So is there any way to narrow down if this is a driver problem then? Is there anything in BIOS I should look at that may cause the problem?

    And on a separate note, what are the ideal BIOS settings for this board with an E8500, 2 SATA drives, 1 IDE drive, 2 IDE CDROM/DVDROM drives and a PCIE video card?

    Like you said, Crap installed.... And that could likely be part of the issue.

    How can you say it was not troubled install? You RMA'd because you thought it was the board right, and now still have the same or similar issues right? You are right though, you may just have some settings off then and now. Just trying to help, no offense meant. A clean install is great for you and your system. Everyone should do it at least twice a year.

    What spyware/virus programs do you run? Do you have or can you borrow another GFX Card to be sure this is not part of the stutter issue?

    Well your first mistake was assuming I RMA'd. :D I never said I did that. I figured because of the HSF coming loose and making the CPU overheat to the point of the system shutting down, which then caused the old MB to take a hit, it didn't fit within the terms of the warranty, so I didn't even try to RMA it. If you think I can then I will.

    As far as the issue at hand, I may have misunderstood you. I thought you meant troubled install as in Windows, not hardware install, so my apologies for that. I didn't have any Windows problems at all with the old board, even when it was freezing up. (and again, I didn't have system freezing problems till -after- my system overheated due to the history in my first post)

    I literally spent 7 days, about 6 hours each day going through every possible scenario, and running tests with the system after the overheating issue. That also includes numerous AV and anti-spyware scans. (I use adaware and malwarebytes' anti-malware along with paid AVG btw) I didn't take offense to what you said, I should have pointed out that I'm not a newbie when it comes to this and have literally tried -everything- to fix the freezing problem before determining it was the MB itself. And now that the MB is replaced, I haven't had it freeze on me yet, it's just this odd stuttering problem now. Oh and I stated in a previous post that I did replace the graphics card with another one and the freezing still took place, so that's how I ruled out it wasn't that.


    Thanks for the template, I will reboot and go into BIOS and write everything down then post an update with the settings I have now along with my system specs.

    Sorry I am pretty tired man, you are right anyway as you can't RMA for a different board anyhow.

    But yes, you can RMA that board for sure. Then sell the replacement if you like. The CPU would be the only thing damaged, if damage occurred which is not likely as I have seen them ran for long periods at 100C where they normally would shut off.

    You can RMA the CPU as well if you think it may be to blame, but of course you would need a spare while you waited the few weeks that Intel Takes.

    I guess it could be your CPU causing the stuttering, but it would be odd. If it was me I would do a clean install to rule out software or driver issues. Only takes a few to do and could save you alot of hassle in the long run

    HAHA< see I am tired and I think I confused you now. Ya I was meaning windows install not hardware. Malware bytes I can accept but AVG not really, but to each his own on that front and I really doubt it would be a virus/spyware anyway I just asked to be sure you was at least using something ya know.

    I never know who knows what when I post so I have to ask everything just to be sure.

    Ya let me get your settings and specs and when I get back in I will see if anything looks off and advise back

    Also a question about this one: ONBOARD SATA/IDE CTRL MODE. It's defaulted to IDE, but I have 2 SATA drives, one of which is my boot. Should I change it to AHCI? I don't have my drives configured for RAID.

    ---

    And out of curiosity, is there a specific SATA port I have to plug my boot drive from? Right now I have both of them plugged into that 6 port thing at the bottom right of the motherboard. I know there's 2 more SATA ports on the middle right area above that, but wasn't sure if it would have an effect one way or the other.

    Also a question about this one: ONBOARD SATA/IDE CTRL MODE. It's defaulted to IDE, but I have 2 SATA drives, one of which is my boot. Should I change it to AHCI? I don't have my drives configured for RAID.

    ---

    And out of curiosity, is there a specific SATA port I have to plug my boot drive from? Right now I have both of them plugged into that 6 port thing at the bottom right of the motherboard. I know there's 2 more SATA ports on the middle right area above that, but wasn't sure if it would have an effect one way or the other.
    Yes the onboard sata ctrl set right. you can enable ahci if you wanted to but you would have to reinstall windows at that point or even if you wanted raid you would have to reinstall. The yellow ports are the intel chip set the purple ones are the Jmicron/Gigabyte controler.

    As far as your bios settings see the changes i have marked in red. when overclocking Auto votltage is bad it over volts. Set voltages manualy. Try setting all setting to defualt with stock over clock and see if you have a problem could be the auto settings messing things up.
