    Default GA-EX58 UD5 - crashing with 3 channel memory

    As thread title, system gives blue screens of death constantly when all three memory modules are installed (into the three white slots). Memtest-86 hangs at 7% every time in this configuration. With one memory module installed, the system runs fine and memtest-86 passes each one of the memory sticks individually.
    Everything in my system is stock - no overclocking, but it makes no difference if I run the memory at "Profile 1" 1600mhz or the underspeed 1066mhz - same issue.
    Any ideas what the problem is? Definitely something to do with the triple channel ram mode, as it is perfect in single channel.
    Cheers.

    are you trying one stick at a time in each white slot? as it should boot in every white slot with one stick

    hmm... it didn't boot with one stick in the 3rd slot (DDR3_5) when i tried it on its own before

    just tried the newer memtest86+, and this time it went through with all 6GB installed without error
    one more thing I noticed - QPI defaults at 6.4 gt/s, when it states on i920 processor box that it is 4.8 gt/s
    Do i have to change QPI to 4.8 gt/s? This thing is complicated.

    best to list your bios settings.

    what dram frequency your setting
    what uncore frequency
    what dram voltage your setting too.

    that way we can get an idea of if its potentially a bad ram kit, or memory controller instability or a bad configuration.

    Memtest98+ came back with a page full of red errors this time (6 GB). Sometimes it passes, sometimes not. Weird.

    You need to select an XMP for the ram to run at 1600mhz
    at the moment its running at 1066 not 1600 because the non EE intel Core i7 processors have a memory controller that only officially runs at 1066, hence why it (bios) defaults to that speed.
    you can up it and it does no harm its fine, just the way it is.
    find the right XMP profile selection to run your ram at its proper speed.

    your lucky, XMP makes things much easier.
    without it, you have to work out the dram frequency, and the uncore frequency aswell.

    I strongly recommend you turn performance enhance to Standard.
    Turbo and Extreme are not good for the longevity of parts and may overvolt your hardware.

    when set to standard and with the correct XMP set, please save and reboot, then post up a screen of your system health page, particularly the dram voltage entry. :)

    why you may ask, and its because you should never allow these system to run a dram voltage above 1.65 unless you know what needs to be scaled along with it, so under any normal circumstance you should always check the voltage to make sure the rams SPD is being read correctly so that the bios sets a safe dram voltage. I am not the best at explaining it though, sorry about that.

    It should run far more stable if you set your XMP and performance enhance.
    you should notice your uncore frequency should auto scale up to about 3.2Ghz after youve set the correct xmp and restarted.

    with the above configuration more correctly set, we can determine if your kit and cpu memory controller is healthy or not. :)


    edit: with some kits you may find that the SPD's specified dram voltage is just not enough (and usually this is when its setting it well under the safe 1.65volt limit) if you still have instability after you've set your performance enhance and xmp correctly, you may need to check the dram voltage setting in the health page, then set that manually and gradually increment it until you find the voltage level which it runs most stable at. (while never going over 1.65v of course)

    I found this to be the case with my rig, I have no XMP so i set my DRAM frequency and Uncore frequency myself (where as you just adjust the XMP) but even the automatic voltage is not right, i have to set my tri channel kit at 1.58 for it to run properly, where as over or under by too much will not be stable, which auto seems to set.
    best to start out with that the rated voltage is for your ram (from the manufacturers data sheet for your ram kit) and then slowly move up from that setting (unless its already rated to run right at 1.65 then what you do is gradually undervolt if it gives you more stability compared to the default 1.65 setting.

    is it seeing the full 6gb in bios????? then youll know if you have a dead stick or faulty slot or not,then load optimized defaults an save and then set up the bios again,use your rams rated speed/timings and voltage...then set cpu voltage on normal and qpi voltage on 1.30000 then set system performance to standard uncore qpi is 2xmulti or 2xmulti=1 you should be able to clock to 3.8ghz with those volts so you will be fine at stock

    yeah, 6GB does show in bios.
    The "Turbo" setting was the default on "Optimised Defaults", but I've set that to standard now along with the XMP "Profile 1". System just hung again in memtest.
    Uncore frequency is at 3200mhz.
    Appreciate your help here.

    try without xmp and set it all manually,also try 8-8-8-24 mem timings

    yes, this is the best suggestion if the xmp setting wont run stable.
    uncore manually to 3.2ghz, dram frequency manually set for 1600 (x12 i think), timing, and command rate also entered manual.

    lastly, you know how its running the dram voltage auto at 1.64.
    Is that what voltage is printed on each module? If it isnt, adjust to the voltage printed on each module (unless its over 1.65, a tri channel kit should never be though)

    Some people find that even after everything is set manually to stock, with the correct dram voltage set that they still run into instability, although only suggested as a last resort, sometimes incrementing the memory controller voltages by a value can correct this.

    Hope you can get it working, although at this point if all suggestions this far still dont yeild your results, then its probably a bad memory kit.
