Thread: Can't play new games on GA-EP45T-UD3LR




  1. #1

    Default Can't play new games on GA-EP45T-UD3LR

    I purchased a Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR motherboard and 2 sticks of G.SKILL DDR3-1333 2GB memory (F3-10666CL9D-4GBNQ). I also have a BGF Tech 9800 GT OC2 video card. My primary issue is that I can't play any new PC games (such as Crysis) for more that about 20 minutes or less without the PC crashing. (Older games such as Far Cry have no problems). Usually, but not always, the BSOD indicates a problem in the Nvidia dll. I have RMA'ed the video card three times to no joy and the motherboard once (that was replaced very early due to overall system instability). I have also read that some people have had problems running g.skill memory on gigabyte MBs.

    I would appreciate any guidance on how to get my current system stable. I have read the forum messages and change my BIOS setting to the recommended defaults. They did not help at all. What other changes are recommended.

    Code:
    CPU = Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E8500
    Motherboard = GIGABYTE GA-EP45T-UD3LR
    BIOS Version = F5
    Ram = G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) F3-10666CL9D-4GBNQ
    PSU = Antec NeoPower 650 Blue 650W

    It may be DX10 you can play crysis in DX9, you might try that and see if it helps.

    Well, that did not help in the least. Didn't make anything worse, but didn't make anything better eitehr. And I just put in the fourth Nvida card, to no joy.

    I think it is the motherboard. I think I am going to have to buy a different vendors MB, as this one in not making it for me.

    Have you checked the RAM with Memtest and then have you ran Prime95 blend to stress the system to check stability?

    yes, I have tested the memory and it tests fine. I don't need to run Prime95 to test stability as I know it is not stable on any settings that I have tried.
