    think i'm finally get somewhere after three weeks of torture with this thing. got it to boot with just one stick in the DDR3_5 memory slot - (didn't boot when i tried this before). the system is very unstable with any of the memory sticks in DDR3_5 - failing tests quickly. as i said earlier, system runs all day with memory in the other two slots.
    does this point to a faulty motherboard in your opinion?
    thanks for all the help

    you could try carefully wiggling the stick of ram in slot 5,only with the power off tho as if on it will blow the ram module,you could have a faulty slot

    If memory fails each time with three sticks at 7%. Try moving the sticks around and see if it fails at a different %. You could have a flaky stick of RAM.

    if you try a single piece in each of the white slot and only the last slot fails, then yes i believe its the socket more so then anything, seems you should RMA your motherboard, sorry mate. at least you've found the cause if that is the case.

    Yeap, sounds like a bad slot to me as well. Each stick should be able to run one by one in any of the white slots. Although this is not how the boards are designed to run single channel and not all boards/memory may pass memtests or be stable in this method of testing they should all be able to at least boot up the same in each slot.

    If you find no stick will boot properly in slot 5 then it is likely a bad slot if all your memory will boot fine by itself in slot 1 or 3

    Update: -
    I too was convinced it must have been a bad ram slot, but I got a brand new ex58 UD5 and my problems persist in exactly the same way as before. Nightmare.
    So, I'm RMAing the RAM to Corsair right now. Hopefully that'll be it - really strange that all this ram works in single or dual channel, but not triple. Weird. No idea why I was getting failures in the 3rd slot but not the other two.
    Not gigabyte's problem in any case, that's for sure.

    Hmm, very odd results for sure. Must just be some slight incompatibility or something, maybe choose a different model if you can when you RMA

    Hi,
    I have had exactly the same problem with Triple Channel Memory in this Mobo.
    All three Memory Modules were tested individually and in Dual Channel Mode.
    They all Passed!
    When all three are in place the Tests stop at 7%.
    I then rebooted and used (C) to change the configuration.
    When I test from 0 to 4096MB it Passes with ALL three fitted.
    I then tried 4096MB to 4100MB and it crshed overwriting the Video Screen.
    ie the RAM Tests were remapped or overlayed a port on the Graphics Card.
    When I made this from 4100Mb to 6192MB it worked correctly and PASSED!
    The problem appears to be at the 4GB boundary!
    The Graphics Card was a Palit 9600GT 512MB in PCI16_1
    Hope this helps someone, although the OP was a few years ago.

    Which type of Corsair memory you installed? Is it the single x3 memories or the 3 RAM modules kit?
    The 3 RAM modules kit will be much stable for the 3-channel mobo. And you can also try the latest version F13J BIOS; it can be downloaded from Gigabyte official website:

    Sorry to Repeat myself but this is a better explanation.

    I used Memtest86+ v3.5 from a Bootable CD to Test my 3 x 2GB DIMMs.
    Each DIMM passes in either DDR3_1 or DDR3_3 slots. (Single Channel)
    Each DIMM Passes in both DDR3_1 and DDR3_3 slots. (Dual Channel)
    When all three are in use DDR3_1, DDR3_3 and DDR3_5 (Triple Channel) the Test FAILS at 7%. I then used the Configuration Option and experimented by changing the Start and End Locations for the Test.
    I then had PASS with the First 4GB and a Fail with the Top 2GB (4-6GB)
    I then changed the limits again from 4100MB to 6GB and this third DIMM then PASSES!
    I then Tested 4096MB to 4100MB and it failed again, this time Overwriting the Video Display with the Test Bytes.
    I then concluded that this is due to the PCI-E Mapping to the Top 4GB address Space.
    I have searched the Internet to see if there is any reference to this and how to Disable the Memory Hole (Memory Remapping) with is Mobo in BIOS. I found nothing!
    Please Help and advise.

    The RAM was 3 off Corsair TR3X6G1333C9 DDR3 DIMM's and I checked that they were correctly set to CAS 9-9-9-24 in BIOS @ 1333MHz and 1.50 Volts.
    As I am the 2nd user of the machine I don't know for sure that they were a kit, but they are identical.
