    Damn, after a 10minutes 2000mhz 7-8-7 20 XMP enabled could not pass memtest. I have tried 8-8-8 24 still can not pass. Is this a motherboard issue? Giga ud7 says it can hold 2100+ ddr3 ...

    the best i think your going to get is 1333 because you have to set 6 gb kits
    the two kits are not match that would be your problem

    i had same problem with the 1600 kits i had to kits best i could do is 1333

    I bought a 12 gb kit and it boots fine runs out staning now

    I have G.Skill Ripjaws at 1600Mhz 6GB and they run fine without any issues. I say its probably the RAM that may not be "compatible" with the board, I've heard several people say they have trouble with Corsair RAM on the UD7. You'll probably need to wait for Gigabyte to solve this issue with a future BIOS update.

    Sorry if I did not mention, but I tried that. I turnned off xmp I set timings manually I upped my dram voltage I upped Qtt voltage I upped Cpu Voltage, I lowered them I set them in between high and low, the only close stability I get is when I enable xmp and do not do anything and allow my cpu to run at 3.34 or something. But this still can not pass memtest I even lowered my memory frequency from 2002 (set by xmp) to (1734) without overclocking anything and I still can't pass memtest. The only passing result running 3 modules was frequency at 1333 which is a shame when I paid 500 dollars for 3 modules to run at 2000mhz 8-7-8 20. I am just wondering if my problem are the modules or motherboard so I know where to go from here what to replace, if it is the motherboard I am out 350 because I can't get a refund only a replacement.

    i would return your ram first as its the smallest and quickest to rma,tell them that it wont run at 2000mhz and spec timings and ask them for refund or replacement

    So they are giving me the run around when they say its a motherboard problem and my motherboard simply sucks and can't handle the speed? I thought it was funny that on the website of Giga it says it can handle 2100+ DDR3 but Corsair tells me since I have a i7 975 that it may be the motherboard can't handle the strain. I am so confused, but I will take your advice and RMA the RAM. One side note though I found it strange since I bought 6 modules so two sets of 6gig suppose to run at 2000mhz that when I tested each individual module 5 passed and one did not. Then when I put three modules in there is no way they will pass mem test. Can anyone explain this to me? And for all those who have tried to help so far thanks a lot you guys are my only source of reference to this problem. Thanks

    Thanks Judge Dredd for your reply, I am thinking about buying the Corsair Dominator you suggest, But i am worried that it will not work on my giga motherboard since I clocked down my ram to 1433 and it still would not run stable! I heard from others or I forgot his name but someone replied to this thread and said people have been having problems with Corsairs and these ud7 boards, which makes me wonder if I should just go with OCZ I really do not want to deal with these RAM problems anymore made me even think about getting a classified and junking my Giga board, but this being my most costly option is also my last desperate option, but it is looking more appealing everytime I try and get this giga board to run stable.

    well ive had no problems with running my ocz reaper @1800mhz 8-8-8-26,they will even do 8-8-8-20 timings,maybe you have a badly matched set idk its just worth returning the easyest first if no luck then try the board,gskill do some good spec 2000mhz kits also

    i have a similar problem,
    when i put 3 ddr3 modules in, the memory test fails.
    when i tet all modules in bank 0, the test goes ok.
    i tried also 8-8-8-24, 9-9-9-24, frequencies from
    1000, 1333, to 1800, but the pc keeps failing memtest
    in tripple channel mode. and windows restarts at random.
    all voltage settings are auto, nothing is overclocked.
    temperatures not more than 50C.
    any ideas what might be wrong?
