    Default EX58-UD5 Memory issues

    Hi everyone, just wondering i've just gotten a EX58-UD5 with a i7 920, i was trying to set my memory's XMP profile which is a Geil 2133MHZ 9-9-9-28 2T. I've set to 1.66v for the mems and QPI/VTT 1.335v but the computer refuses to boot i've to always clear the cmos. Anyone knows what could be the problem? Im running dual channel only btw

    thanks

    You are not going to run 2133Mhz without setting everything manually, and you will need MUCH More QPI/Vtt

    To be able to run that speed with take you a lot of tweaking before you get it going, even 2000Mhz can take you a bit of time to get going.

    You may not ever be able to run that speed, that would require a NB Speed of 4.2Ghz which most users won't be able to get going. That kit is meant for a enthusiast and knowledgeable overclocker and meant to be for benchmarking at those speeds, not really for general computer use and or 24/7 use at those speeds.

    No way you will ever be able to use XMP like that, I can't believe they even set a XMP in there for that speed. What is the XMP Profiles QPI/Vtt setting? Just wondering because at those speeds it should be 1.5-1.6+ likely so I just wondered what they programmed

    Please grab a template from my signature and give me your specs and current settings and I will advise back

    Do you want to overclock the CPU or not? If so, to around what Speed? Just wondering so I can know what to advise you when I post you back some things to try out. Do keep in mind again, 2000Mhz is hard for most users to get going let alone stable so you are in for a bit of work

    lsdmeasap thanks for your prompt reply!

    Okay heres my spec:

    -Intel core i7 920
    -Gigabyte EX58-UD5 (F9e beta)
    -Geil 2133mhz 9-9-9-28 2T 2GBX2
    -Asus GTS250 Dark Knight 512MB

    What do you mean by NB speed?
    It seems like the XMP is half f*ck. They didn't bother to touch the QPI/Vtt at all. Actually this kit is meant for dual channel boards like P55. But they do have the same sticks for triple channel too.

    Im testing the memory first because im still on stock cooler so i won't touch the BCLK/CPU.

    The "best" timing i could get was 1600mhz 7-6-7-20 1T. I believe with QPI/Vtt 1.5+v gonna kill the processor?

    NB Speed, sorry I meant uncore speed

    So you have a dual kit for P55 should work ok I would imagine, but same would still apply that I said above. I suggest you disable XMP though, especially now that you say it is for P55 the XMP would be different anyway

    High QPI will not kill your CPU as long as you follow some rules. I made a post in regards to this here >>
    QPI/Vtt Voltage post (High is OK)

    Lets see if you can get 1860Mhz going then, at stock this may be tough to do though due to uncore speeds. You will need to set it a bit higher than default and likely QPI as well. Higher than Stock bclk would help, but you do need a better cooler first as you said

    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)

    I've tried your settings in bios, it can't work and i can't use easytune because there's a CheckFK.SearchBIOSStr error maybe because im using windows 7. But when i slowly set back to the workable settings, it seems like QPI link speed(i set x48) and Uncore frequency(tried 28-30) is the culprit. What could be wrong?

    Use the latest Easytune >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/late...y-tools-30530/

    But really it is not good for anything you are trying to do anyway. It should only be used to check things such as voltages, ect.

    What all voltages did you use? Best to show me full settings each time things fail so I can advise back.

    Try x44 instead of X48 then, but uncore will HAVE to be at least 28 if using x14 memory multi

    Set all advanced timings to auto for now, and try more QPI/Vtt with x36 QPI and 28 uncore for now. Are you getting BSOD's or just not booting through at all?

    The bios just auto set to the lowest speed/settings and boot into windows.

    I've set to all auto timings and 12x for SPD(1600) with x36 QPI and 28 uncore, above voltages it can't work too. :(
