    Default x58A-UD7 Ram or Motherboard Issue?

    Hi,

    I am quite new to the overclocking community; however, I have read up on things for about a good week now. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing problems one after the other from a defective video card to now my problem with running my RAM at the rated stock speed. I have 12gb of Corsair Dominator GT which is suppose to run tripple channel at 2000mhz 7-8-7-20 timing.

    Hardware:
    PSU Antec 1200watt
    i7 975 cpu extreme
    12GB Dominator GT 2000mhz
    2 Seagate XT 2Tb
    2 5970 Asus
    Gigabyte x58A-UD7

    Problem: I have simply tried to get 6gb to run at the stock speed, but my system becomes unstable after I pass 1333 RAM Frequency. I can boot up at 2000 mhz but I can't pass memtest for the life of me. Moreover, I can not push my memory pass 12x multiplier or my system does not boot. The XMP profile causes my system to be unbootable as well since the multiplier gets set over 12x. My CPU can be pushed fine as long as I keep Vcore at 1.35 it runs up to 4.2 with no problem, but whenever I try to get my RAM pass 1333 either by increasing bclck or multiplier I run into all sorts of problems.

    Things I have tried: I have tried pushing my base clock down and pushing my multipliers up and also have tried pushing my base clock up and pushing my multipliers down. I have tweaked with voltages bringing my QPI/VTT up to 1.59 (as suggested by a Corsair tech support) but still no stability. I ran memtest on every single module testing 2000mhz and only one failed so that one module needs to be RMA. But, when I put in 3 modules that passed singly at 2000mhz I can't get pass 1333 without failing memtest in tr channel. Corsair tech support says my motherboard can't handle 2000mhz tri channel, but I see on almost every forum guys running there RAM on this motherboard 12gb at 2000mhz. Moreoever, I know that this motherboard can at least support 3 modules at 1600, but I can't even get 1474 or something to be stable. I need help very badly, I do not know if I need to get another motherboard or RMA my ram or <face-palm> because I have been messing things up in the bios. Essentially I do not know what is going on, I have been working on this system to get it stable for 2 weeks now and am going simply crazy. Thank You in advance for your time and help, if you are able.

    is it a 12gb kit?or two 6gb kits? have you left timings on auto @2000mhz to see what bios sets them at?and i wouldnt go over 1.5qpi,1.3-1.45 should be plenty

    it is two 6gb kits, but I am just trying to get one to work for the time being at the stock speeds, so I am only working as of now with 3 modules 2 gb each module. I did leave stock settings on auto, but I am not able to boot unless I up the base clock and kick down the memory multiplier

    are you running 4.2ghz cpu? what have you been able to run ram at? did you set system performance enhance to standard?

    Yea my cpu is 4.2 I have been able to run 1333 RAM which passes mem test. All the other frequencies do not pass memtest, I have tried with turbo on and off both seem to have no effect on my RAM becomming stable.

    i mean system performance enhance,it has 3 settings not cpu turbo,keep that enabled and set sys per enhance to standard,what qpi and cpu voltages are you using? also for 4.2ghz you might need slightly looser ram timings to be stable

    have you tried to lower qpi voltage? any luck with 1.40000 qpi? try with 1.4qpi and 8-8-8-24 timings? if stable then try 8-8-8-20 timings?@2000mhz

    What are the options that I would have to mess around with in order to get 12GB stable? Qpi and Ram voltage only? As of the 6GB I think I might have got them stable at 2000 mhz 7-8-7 20 timing simply by updating my bios from f3g to f3h, quite weird.
