    With B2B on auto MemTest comes up with thousands of errors. With it at 12, it comes up with 10s of errors.

    QPI voltage is on Auto. It says normal is 1.100V. Where can I check if that's actually what it's running at?
    see i dont know the voltages on p55 boards as they need less than an x58 but qpi its best to set manual voltages as auto will usually overvolt it,try 1.20000 qpi and youll see all voltages in easytune under tuner/advance/voltage 1 and 2, go to gigabytes website and see if theres an updated chipset driver too

    I set the QPI voltage to 1.2100V and MemTest has been going for 20 minutes with no errors. I'll let this go overnight and see how it goes, but it hasn't thrown thousands in errors in 5 minutes, so that makes me really happy.

    If it's running stable with this change should I even bother updating chipset drivers?

    yeah update the chipset drivers only if there newer ones,and if its stable try lowering qpi by one click a time till you find a stable voltage

    QPI voltage in auto should be visible in easytune, it should show you what auto decides.

    1.1 is not going to work as you have noticed, you may need 1.2-1.35 or more. More is not likely with 1333Mhz, but if timings are tight enough you may need it but not for standard stock spec timings 1.2-1.3 should be good.

    Manually set your ram voltage to spec or above as well

    Hi Yodo,

    I spotted your post and funnily enough I've got the same setup as you and also experiencing random BSODs. I've got the GA-P55-UD4P, i7 860 CPU and 4GB (2x2GB) of GSkill RipJaw DDR3-1333 RAM as well as a VelociRapter drive.

    I've tested the RAM with Memtest for over an hour with no errors at all.

    I've scanned the HDD and done some low level scans with no errors. Plus I've installed Windows 7 on the same disk in another older test machine (a LGA775 P4 & 2 GB DDR2-800) with no such problems so far (I'm using it now). I WAS thinking it was the HDD but can't fault it now really so I'm now thinking it's the Gigabyte motherboard as you have done.

    Pretty much same symptoms i.e. got three or four BSODs last evening and uninstalled Norton's Internet Security and some other things thinking it might be software related. PC worked fine for the rest of the evening but then tonight I turned it on and it didn't even get to the desktop without getting a BSOD.

    I did notice that when installing Windows 7 originally it seemed unusually slow, i.e. screen with Windows 7 graphics only, no installation progress bar or anything else, then 5, 10 mins later I'd be prompted to setup up language settings or something. It also had problems copying/expanding the image from the Win7 DVD reporting that there were file errors.

    Would be very interested to hear how you've got on...

    Cheers.

    I installed Windows 7 successfully but have since been plagued by seemingly random BSODs (sometimes the screen would just distort and the computer would restart instead of displaying a BSOD). These BSODs would sometimes occur before even logging into Windows, sometimes after 10 minutes. Sometimes I could play GTA4 for hours, and then browse the net, and shut down normally with no problems.

    When this first started happening I instantly thought it was a memory problem. I boot up MemTest 86+ and get tons of errors (thousands after 10-15 minutes). So I test each stick individually and each one runs for 3+ hours each with no errors. I then ran some more tests with 2 DIMMs being used, some with all 4 being used and I sometimes I got errors, sometimes I didn't. Couldn't come up with a pattern.

    So I then think it's a bad mobo. I admit that I got a little antsy here and instantly RMAed it for a new mobo. I wait 2 weeks and finally get to install everything again and alas, I have the same problems. I flashed the bios to F4r and it seemed to fix it, some default frequencies changed and MemTest86 ran for several hours with no errors. But alas, a day or two later windows BSODed again and MemTest86 turned up a ton of errors.

    Someone suggested I test my hard drives with Drive Fitness Test, so I did with no errors.

    So right now I'm trying to tweak the memory timings to see if I have some bad defaults or something. I increased the B2B setting from Auto to 12. MemTest is ran with that for several hours and only reported 24 errors.

    is it a working copy of win7? you say it has errors in the files? do you know if its 100% working cd? also have you set your ram/qpi/and cpu volts the same as yoda? this may help you

    I suppose I should reply to this thread again. I haven't had enough time to use my machine at all much less try to fix it.

    My machine was never really working, despite my earlier post. As I said in my earlier post, I let MemTest run over night and it didn't return a single error. I booted in to Windows 7 the next day and it was fine. Did all kinds of things, games, movies, music, etc. The day after that I tried to update my chipset drivers, but I guess there was nothing to update, unless I just missed something?

    So I turned off my computer and installed the other 4gb of RAM i bought (same brand and speed, GSkill 1333). Once again, tons of errors show up in MemTest. Sooooooo, I checked and saw there was a new Bios released, so I flashed the Bios to the latest one, F4t or something like that. I set everything to optimized defaults (QPI back to normal 1.1, DRAM 1.5, DRAM 9-9-9-24) and to my surprise MemTest ran overnight with no errors with all 8gb in.

    So I finally think that this whole thing has been fixed. I booted into Windows the next day, once again could do anything I wanted (games, music, etc). Shut down and ran MemTest the next day. Surprise surprise, I once again get hundreds of errors. I put the QPI back up to 1.2, the DRAM to 1.65, and test again: less errors, but still errors. I then got desperate and lowered the multiplier on my RAM so that it's running at 1033, I get even less errors, but still errors.

    I have not tried to take out the additional 4gb I added but I'm thinking that it won't matter with this pattern of testing fine one day and then testing bad the next day. Like I said before, I really don't have a lot of time these days to mess around with my computer. I'm thinking the next time I can play (fight?) with it is Saturday.



    Oh, by the way Groins, I had the same issue when I installed Win7 with it just sitting there for like 5-10 minutes before it showed me the language setup screen and I could move on. I didn't really think much of it at the time. For some reason I burned my Win7 iso onto a double layer DVD, I just figured it had something to do with that.

    Hey Wazza300, yes it's a working copy. I've installed it twice on this test machine from one of the original DVD ROMs and so far everything is working fine (I got a three licences (disks) for Win7).

    I tell you what, it's a real pain in the arse! When you buy new hardware you kind of expect things to work.

    I was thinking about flashing the BIOS with the newer F4r (beta) one but from reading Yoda's response that doesn't seem to of helped. I might just return the board and get an ASUS or something? Anyway, got to go to work now.

    Thanks for the replies, cheers.

    Yeah, I don't use a floppy drive so I have that disabled already and is not part of the boot order. I left BIOS settings pretty much at default i.e. no overclocking, RAM timings etc I set to AUTO.

    I'm wondering whether it's a problem with the SATA/Drive controller but I'm only guessing here.

    Cheers.
