    Default Help! configuring 998691 6GB on GA-X58A-UD7

    Hello, first, sorry for my English, is not my maternal language...
    Recently i bought these RAM kit --> (998691 - 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 6-7-6-18 Redline) to use on a Gigabyte X58A-UD7
    I thought i could use XMP to configure it but when i enable it, the system becomes inestable and reboots most of times; if not, it shows me a blue screen.

    other thing is when i enable XMP, the first channel doesnīt show timmings in the BIOS (the other channels show timmings properly)

    So, how i have to configute it?

    I dont know yet where is the problem, in the RAM or in the motherboard. Maybe this RAM kit isnīt compatible with my motherboard...

    Please help me!

    set ram manually without xmp,select quick timings and try 6-7-6-18,set mem multiplier to give you 1600mhz and set dram voltage to your rams spec,if no luck try with 8-8-8-20 timings

    i already set ram parametrs manually at CL6 1600Mhz and while i test it with Memtest86 each stick separatelly, i get diferent results with diferent number of errors...

    If y set all parametrs in auto, i get 8 8 8 20 timmings at 1000 Mhz and the system becomes stable...

    Dou you think its a mobo or ram issue?
    Does anyone have this RAM model working properly on a UD7?

    thanks a lot for response me.

    P.D. Happy new year from Spain! :D

    its probably ram,you might need more qpi voltage with cas6 timings but 8-8-8-20 is ok for now

    Yes but, i bought this ram kit to use it on CL6 timmings...
    If i put more qpi voltage between 1.325v and 1.375v and DDRv at 1.65v the system doesnt boot and a message appears saying that bios had loaded default settings because a failure system boot after overclocking... :S its the reason i dont know where is the problem: Ram or MoBo.

    I just found this post on Google.

    I have the same motherboard and RAM with the same timings as yours. When I choose to use the XMP profile, the latencies are set all wrong. Memtest shows that the memory is actually running in 6-6-5-19 when the BIOS says 6-7-6-18.

    Hopefully this is something that will be fixed with a BIOS update.

    Do you know if he is able to boot any S.O with these timmings and Mhz/Vtt and keep it stable without using XMP? I even canīt do that...
    If i test it with memstest with XMP i get different results for each stick by itself.
    If y set timmings and Mhz/Vtt manually, the system doesnīt show POST and then reboot saying that BIOS has set optimized settings because a system boot gailure before overclocking...

    P.D. sorry my English :P

    I have a UD7 board and 6GB Mushkin 998692 RAM (same RAM with different heat spreader). I am just learning about overclocking and at first would not boot the system when just plugging in aggressive sytem settings. I think you need to start out with a low overclock and work up slowly from there. Make sure you are using the latest bios. I am using the F3c beta bios without problems.

    Now, I have the RAM running at 6-7-6-18 @1500Mhz with these settings:

    CPU clock ratio: 20
    Intel Turbo boost: Enabled
    CPU Multithreading: Enabled
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E): Disabled
    CPU EIST function: Enabled - also works with Disabled
    Virtualization tech.: Disabled
    Bi-Directional PROCHOT: Enabled

    QPI Link Speed: x36
    Uncore frequency: 20
    Base Clock control: Enabled
    BCLK Frequency (Mhz): 150
    Isochronous Frequency: Enabled

    PCI Express Frequency: 100
    C.I.A.2: Disabled

    CPU Clock Drive: 800mv
    PCI Express Clock Drive: 900mv
    CPU Clock Skew: 0ps
    IOH Clock Skew: 0ps

    DRAM:
    Performance Enhance: Standard
    Extreme Memory Profile XMP: Disabled
    System Memory Multiplier: 10
    DRAM Timing Selectable: Expert

    Enter DRAM timings: 6-7-6-18
    Set Command Rate for each module: 1

    Voltage:
    Load Line Calibration: Level 1
    CPU Vcore: 1.275v works, but you can go higher - try anything up to 1.3v at first.
    QPI/Vtt voltage: 1.2v - should work but you can go higher - if not, try up to 1.25 for this overclock.
    CPU PLL: 1.80v

    MCH/IOH:
    PCIE: Auto
    QPI PLL: 1.14v
    IOH Core: 1.10v
    ICH I/O: 1.50v
    ICH Core: 1.14v

    DRAM:
    DRAM voltage: 1.62v - This or even lower should work, but if system has problems, try 1.64v or 1.66v (but not higher!!). Once system is stable, you can try to lower DRAM voltage.
    Other DRAM settings: AUTO

    I have an Intel i920 D0 stepping. What do you have?

    I also had some attempts where not all of the RAM timings showed up in the bios. This was corrected when I raised the DRAM voltage higher.

    These settings will give you a CPU frequency of 3.150Mhz (150 Bclk x 21 multipler with Turbo on) and a RAM frequency of 1500Mhz (150 Bclk x 10 multiplier). If this works, and it should, you can adjust Bclk higher and possibly some of the voltages (CPU, QPI).

    When you get to 160 Bclk, your RAM will be at 1600Mhz. I haven't reached there yet. My system was not stable when I just plugged in settings with very high voltages and 200 Blck. But it is running very stable now and when I have time, I will try to go higher.

    Let us know if you are making progress.

    have you tried your settings but with c1e enabled and cpu voltage on "normal" and qpi on 1.30000??? you may be able to lower qpi a little as your at 3.1ghz, if your running win7 you can disable c1e and select balanced in power saving options in win7,it does the same job as c1e in bios,only for win7 though

    Wazza,

    What will I improve if I change CPU voltage to "Normal" and qpi on 1.30v? Should I make that change only if overclocking higher than the present 3.150Mhz?

    I do have Win7 and am using Balanced power setting. So, should I leave C1e off? Should I turn it on if overclocking higher?

    I am very much a novice at this. I was shooting for an initial target of 3.4Mhz but have stopped at 3.15Mhz so far.

    Thanks.
