    Default GA P55-UD3P and Random Beeps !

    I purchased a system with this configuration :

    CPU : i5 750
    MB : GA P55-UD3P
    RAM: Corsair TW3X4G1333C9 2x2GB
    VGA: Sapphire Vapor-X HD-4850 1GB
    PW : OCZ 600W

    This system was not stable, It Freezed randomly during installing OS Finally I managed to install a win7 on it but after windows startup when PC was in idle state I heard a single beep sound from the MB buzzer, sometimes it Freezed right after the beep and it drived me crazy.

    I upgraded the bios from F3 to F5 (no result)
    I changed the graphic card to Geforce 8400 (no result)
    I Changed the ram speed to 1066 (no result)
    I tried diffrerent slots of ram in single and dual configuration (no result)

    After searching I figured out GIGA mainboards have some problems with Corsair Rams, then I changed the Ram module to :

    OCZ 2x2GB (OCZ3G1333LV2G)

    With OCZ ram It seems that the Freezing problem is gone, but occasionally I hear a signle beep sound while the PC is in idle state or when I'm typing, surfing the internet.... and It happens randomly.

    Downclocking the ram to 1066 decreases the beep numbers but still there is beep. I upgraded the BIOS to F6C but it makes more beeps!!


    Any Idea about this symptom?

    I disabled Intel turbo,C1E,C3/C6,EIST,C.I.A.2 and also tried various combinations of those with no luck.

    Memory Voltage tested from 1.5-1.66 (no result)
    QPI Voltage tested from 1.1-1.21 (no result)

    Is it safe to set more than 1.21 for QPI voltage?

    Today I set the BCLK to 150Mhz No Beeps for about 2 hours! I will update you if beeps are disapeared.

    HI.

    I have same 9ga-p55-ud3r MB) and no problem. Daughter has same pc except p55-ud3 and ati video card hd5770 ans is getting a random beep/ Sounmds like this problem. did you resolve it? apart from the random beep there is no function or freezing problem and no reported problems in windows. Very strange.

    My next thought was to update the bios to the latest for her gtom f5 to f7 but as she lives inthe next town its best to leave that till she travels home again.

    thanks for any ideas.

    do you have the quickboot option on that mb?? sometimes disabling it stops the beep,also disabling floppy drives helps to install win7 without crashes/lockups and yeah its best to update to the latest bios even better the latest beta bos's on main page have all the latest fixes.remember to flash using q-flash

    I managed to cancel the beeps by upgrading to bios vF6. gigabyte added "Enhanced memory compatibility" in this version and i think it cure the bug.

    but still you must disable Intel turbo,C1E,C3/C6,EIST,C.I.A.2 otherwise you will have beeps even with F6 installed in your mb. It is about 3 months that I use/test F6 without any freeze or error and it seems that it is pretty stable.
