    Default X58-UD5 memory help

    I have a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard, a i7 920 cpu with BIOS f9e and this Corsair memory
    http://www.corsair.com/_datasheets/TR3X6G1600C9.pdf
    Corsair memory is suppose to be 1600 but I cannot get the Corsair memory to run stable at any speed above 1300 and would appreciate help in getting the full potential out of this memory..
    Water Cooling, idle at 33 and 55 with all cpu load at 100%
    I have not overclocked the i7 920 yet , just trying to get it to run stable, I would like to try to get this to 3Ghz as I am extremely disappointed at the speed of this setup. It " feels" slower than my old Q6600.
    Any help much appreciated...

    "This memory has been verified to operate at 1600MHz at latencies of 9-9-9-24
    at 1.65V VDIMM."

    Try changing it from AUTO to 1.65V.

    Your bios probably wont let you choose 1.65, choose 1.64 and see if its more stable, then if not you could try 1.66, but I would reccomend not going any higher in voltage if you want your cpu to last.

    That's ram voltage, not cpu.

    Please enlighten me where the ICH is located on the Core i7 Bloomfields?
    If you overvolt your ram, you fry the ICH.
    I'll give you a hint, its not on the northbridge anymore...
