    Default GA-EX58-UD4P/Corei7-920/12GB RAM - Base settings?

    First build in 7+ years and everything ran perfectly when I hit the power - yay!

    Little lost on what the BIOS settings should be though to optimize. Note that I'm not interested in overclocking at this point, but will as I get the hang of things.

    So...is it possible to get a listing of what settings I should have in my BIOS in the same format as Lsdmeasap made in this post? I found this to be extremely handy!

    My system is:

    GA-EX58-UD4P
    Core i7-920
    12GB Patriot RAM (7-7-7-20) @ 1333MHz
    BFG GTX285 @ 666MHz
    Western Digital Caviar Black - 1TB
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

    Thanks for any help.

    Unless you are looking to overclock, I would leave it alone. You are not going to get any noticeable improvements I think. As long as all your memory is recognized, you are good to go :)

    its more difficult to run faster ram speed and tight timings with 12gb also,you will be able to overclock tho

    Do you want to leave things as they, are now clock wise I mean? If so, let me know and I can give you a full set of suggested settings like you wanted.

    Whatever the 'factory settings' should be i.e., not over clocked. I can work on that once I have a better understanding.

    Thanks again!

    K, thanks. This is what I suggest for stock, I have C1E and EIST disabled here so your CPU will run at full speed, you can enable them if you would like speedstep to clock things down at idle


    BSOD Error codes and what they mean:
    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
    0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage


    Code:
    Advanced CPU Features:
    CPU Clock Ratio ................................ [20x]
    Intel(R) Turbo Boost Tech .................. [Enabled]
    CPU Cores Enabled ............................ [All]
    CPU Multi Threading .......................... [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) ................... [Disabled]

    Bi-Directional PROCHOT ..................... [Enabled]
    
    
    Uncore & QPI Features:
    QPI Link Speed .............................. x36 or 44x (Just have to keep under 8.0GT/s, x44 will be fine, but you may want to try it out later as it may require some voltage tweaking, set x36 for now
    Uncore Frequency .......................... 20-22 (Always 2x memory Multi or 2x +1, 2x +2, ect - Higher means more Vdimm often) 
    Isonchronous Frequency ..................[Enabled]
    
    
    Standard Clock Control:
    Base Clock (BCLK) Control ................ [Enabled]
    BCLK Frequency (MHz) ..................... 133

    C.I.A.2 [Disabled]
    
    Advanced Clock Control:

    PCI Express Clock Drive ................... [900mV]
    CPU Clock Skew ............................. [0ps]

    Advanced DRAM Features:
    Performance Enhance ...................... [Standard]
    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P) ......... [Disabled]

    tRAS .......................................20
    
    Below values may be left in Auto if you like, generally this is fine.  For those users who DO Set advanced timings manually, please see some of my thoughts and findings about these settings and rules here
    XtremeSystems Forums - View Single Post - Gigabyte EX58-UD5/Extreme Discussion Thread

    CPU Vcore ............................... Auto is fine for no overclock
    QPI/VTT Voltage 1.150v ............ << 1.3-1.45+ (You may need 1.3-1.35 or more with 12GB, maybe even 1.4+, I'd suggest you start at 1.35 and see how it goes, then decide which way you need to go)
    CPU PLL 1.800v ....................... << Set 1.8
    
    MCH/ICH
    PCIE 1.500v ........................... << Set 1.5
    QPI PLL 1.100v ....................... << Try 1.14-1.24
    IOH Core 1.100v ..................... << Set 1.2-1.32 (Higher end may be needed for 12GB, start around 1.24 or so though as it may be good enough at these speeds)

    ICH Core 1.1v ........................ << Set 1.14
