    Default EX58 & Corsair Dominator XMP Setting

    Hi,

    So I've got my new rig installed and up and running both on Windows XP and Windows 7 RC. Both are on clean installs on two SATA hard drives that I have had from my previous build and both are clean installs.

    I seem to have constant issues with setting the memory using the XMP Profile1 setting where the speed gets bumped to 1600MHz and voltage to 1.65v. However in Windows, either XP or RC7, the system constantly hangs.

    I basically get the screen to freeze with no mouse movement after a while. I checked the event settings and nothing is showing. I am not sure if it if the memory alone since I've tested it with the Windows memory diagnostics in both normal and XMP profile and have also run Prime95 for a few hours under both settings without a problem. However the only time it seems to hang is when it gets bumped to the XMP profiles. Any ideas? Could it be the MB? Maybe the HD's are failing?

    My setup:
    Gigabyte EX58-UD5 w/ 9
    Intel i7 920 (no overclocking)
    Sapphire Radeon 5870 (Radeon_HD5800_8.66RC6 Drivers)
    3 x 2GB Corsair Dominator TR3X6G1600C8D
    Corsair HX-850 PSU
    Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s

    its most likely your ram timings thats causing it,also what bios are you using? read on how to flash to latest bios using q-flash as the latest bios has memory compatability fixes,try setting your ram multi/voltage and timings manually as auto will more than likely cause you issues

    Hi thanks for the response...

    I've installed the latest BIOS using Q-Flash, as this same situation was cropping up under F7. So I have the F9E beta bios installed right now.

    I tried setting it to Profile1 and then upping the voltages a bit, 1.7 for memory and 1.35 for the CPU, but still a no go. You think I should relax the timings a bit? I'm a bit peeved because these RAM sticks were supposedly rated at 1600MHz at 8-8-8-24. And XMP was supposed to make pushing this stuff easier right!?!!? LOL...

    Anyway, I can repeat the errors by opening up Chrome and watching a HD video and then turning on the performance monitor from Windows. The system instantly reboots itself without warning. The error I get right before the reboot is "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly."
    Source is Kernal-Power
    Event ID 41

    Everything works fine when I turn XMP off and set everything back to stock. Only thing I change in the BIOS is the XMP setting to Profile1.

    all xmp is is a preloaded setting profile for your ram dont over volt cpu or ram volts tho only go as high as 1.66 in bios for ram and cpu can be left on auto or normal for stock speed,you can try 8-8-8-26 or 8-8-8-28 for ram timings and i wouldnt use xmp if i were you...i dont have xmp with my ram,itll probably be corrected in future bios so you will be able to use xmp but not just yet,also you can set timings manually as rated 8-8-8-24 and turn xmp off does it crash if you do that??

    Hi,

    Yeah I dialed in all those settings manually. Everything else I left as stock. I tried 26 and 28 timings and they still crash...

    I dialed the multiplier down to 10 instead of 12 which nets me a 1333MHz memory...Seems stable...I can't get to 1600MHz...I'm thinking of RMA'ing this set and getting another brand if I can't get it stable...

    Wuddya think? Anything else I can try?

    People mistrust of XMP is amazing.
    XMP does it's job right, QPI or what ever is the equivalent of MCH is probably need tweaking.

    you can try 9-9-9-24 timings @1600mhz as more mhz is better then looser timings and qpi shouldnt need messing with at stock cpu speed
