    Im having issues seeing maybe if you guys can help.... i need that bios update as well but it doesnt want to work for my 64 bit system, also my system is failing memory tests but the memory and the motherboard is brand new, this is my 2nd set. memory is corsair dominator 1066mhz 5-5-5-15 2.1v, i changed the memory setting for the voltage in the bios and the memory tests are still coming back bad, iv updated all drivers and still issues, any ideas and where can i get a 64bit version of the bios?

    Sure we can at least try to, but please create your own thread, put your system specs in your forum sugnature, including a link to your ram specs, and post your current BIOS settings using the template in this post.

    Not sure what are you saying, there no different BIOS version of 32 or 64 bit, BIOS work for both.

    We need to know what hardware you have in your system.
    To eliminate errors, it is best to add your hardware list to your forum signature, where you include the brand and model number of each component. Be sure to include an external link to the full specifications for your memory, preferably a link to the manufacturer's web page for your model of memory.
    Be sure to include:

    • cpu
    • motherboard model and version numbers
    • bios version number
    • cpu heatsink model number and attached fan(s)
    • memory size, number of modules, and model number
    • graphics card model number (is it overclocked?)
    • power supply unit (psu) name, model number, and wattage
    • computer case name, model number, and cooling fan(s) information

    Creating a new thread:
    To create a new thread, press the NEW THREAD button at the top left portion of the Gigabyte forum thread list. Choose a meaningful title that will attract the attention of forum members with similar hardware including your cpu, mobo, and ram, such as "EP45-UD3R, E7500, Mushkin XP2-8500 - New Build Problems".

    Check out this thread for recommended initial bios settings, sample screen-shot, forum signature and other useful information.

    Initial settings:
    1) The first and most important thing to do is boot your system with only one memory module in slot #1.
    2) Enter the bios and load OPTIMIZED bios settings from the main bios screen.
    3) Save settings and exit (F10).
    4) Enter the bios again, press [CTRL] + F1 at the main screen.
    5) In the M.I.T. section, make the suggested bios changes in this post.

    • The DRAM voltage should usually be set to 2.00 - 2.10 volts (DDR2). Using more than 2x2GB of memory will probably require the maximum rated voltage for your memory.
    • Incorrect MCH Core voltage can cause instability or boot loop problems.

    6) Make additional bios changes to disable hardware that you are not using.
    7) Save settings and exit.
    8) Turn off your system and also turn off the power using the psu on/off switch.
    9) Insert the remaining memory module(s) in the appropriate motherboard slots.
    10) Do not change any bios settings that you are not familiar with.

    Stress testing:
    Cutting corners here will waste your time and probably cause problems later when you're using your system or overclocking.

    Run Memtest86+ for at least 10 or more full passes. Memory errors can be caused by defective memory, improper bios settings, or defective motherboard memory slots. An overnight test is best. Note: raid setups and operating system installation should not be performed until your system passes Memtest86+.

    Intel BurnTest (IBT):
    IBT is an excellent first pass stress testing tool. You should run 10 - 20 passes which won't take very long. You should set the number of threads to 2 for dual core processors and 4 for quad processors. Manually select the maximum amount of memory that IBT will allow for your system. WATCH YOUR CPU VCORE TEMPERATURES! A value over 70 degrees celsius might be caused by an imporoperly seated cpu heatsink.

    Prime95, OCCT, or Orthos:
    An overnight test of 12 hours (or longer) is best. If an error occurs in any worker threads, the test has failed and should be stopped. Be sure to note how long the test ran before the error occured and the detailed information about the failed test. It is not necessary to test with all three of these programs, as they perform similar tests and offer similar test options. In Prime95, the three primary tests are:
    small FFT
    large FFT
    OCCT and Orthos offer similar test options. Check out the Prime95 Primer.

    Posting Bios Settings:
    Copy the appropriate generic bios template to your system. Using a text editor, change the values in the template to the settings that you are using. This means replacing any AUTO (default) settings with your manually entered settings. It can help if you also enter the "normal" non-modifiable settings that are displayed in your bios to the left of the line where you can manually enter a different setting, such as:
    Static tRead Value ------ 8 ---------------: [7]
    CPU Vcore ---------- 1.25000 -------------: [Auto]

    To post your bios settings in a scrollable window:
    Copy all the text [CTRL] + A (select all) then [CTRL] + C (copy all).
    Paste the copied text into the forum Message box.
    Select (highlight) all of the bios text settings.
    Click on the # (wrap [CODE] tags around the selected text).
    Your remaining message text should not be in the CODE box.

    When seeking advice for overclocking or problems, this screen-shot provides us with additional useful information. Feel free to include other screen information, such as stress test or temperature panels.

    Links to download these programs are in the Latest Overclocking Programs, System Info, Benchmarking, & Stability Tools thread.
    You might need to upgrade to the latest bios version for your motherboard from the Gigabyte website or the Gigabyte Latest BIOS thread.
    NEVER USE @BIOS (within Windows) to flash your bios.
    Follow the procedures in Lsdme's BIOS Flashing - A "How To ~ Qflash Guide".
