    Default Overvoltage leds on

    Well...These are my ram sticks, 6gb. Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX6GX3M3A1600C9 - Desktop Memory


    The above link is where I got my ram sticks. So here is the problem...This is my first time that I have built my own PC. So as soon as I was done with it, I booted it up, then all overvoltaged leds were turned on, which indicated overvoltage. There are three levels of overvoltage, green level 1(slight), yellow(moderate) level 2, and red(extreme), level 3. However, two sets of leds were on varying from green to yellow, all of which belong to the CPU, northbridge and ram and they all also occured when I access my BIOS. But as soon as I exit my BIOS, they were gone but except one green light which belongs to the ram. SO IS THIS NORMAL?


    Besides, my RAM, according to the specification, runs at 1600...But according to the BIOS, it runs 1333mhz. The specified voltage is 1.65v, but the BIOS shows 1.5v. My question is how I can turn off the green and yellow leds? So shall I go to the BIOS and change the DRAM voltage from 1.5v to 1.65v as specified by the specification of the RAM? Yes, that's right Gigabyte MOBO.

    This is the board I own.

    Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

    GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R

    As for CPU, I use i7 extreme 965.

    Because I really wanna get rid of the green led, which is somewhat annoys me and gives me a creepy feeling about the rams and the board are gonna get fried.

    Now I feel safe and sound because you know this my first time. Anyway, thanks a lot.

    BTW, here comes a few questions regarding the software...
    1) After I installed window 7 ultimate, no matter how I tried, the sidebar wouldn't work and I know the sidebar is gone but how there is still a sidebar folder, within which there is a sidebar icon? Is it normal?

    2) The EasyTune wouldn't work, whenever the warning message popped up, it said something like "unable to load the driver error"...

    3) How come my monitor is out of range during POST? Parts of the info shifts to the right, so for instance, if IDE CHANNEL appears during POST, I only see the word CHANNEL, and the IDE is shifted to the right. After POST, everything is fine. I use 64x window ultimate 7. My monitor is 19inch, NEC.

    the sidebar is still in win7 you just have to load what you want on screen,theres no line on the screen like there was in vista,easytune wont work if you have an ati 5000 series card youll have to wait for new version,and check your screen resolution for distorted text



    see how there isnt a line in win7,the sidebar is blended into the desktop now

    Another savior that has solved some of my problems. BTW warren, during POST, it is out of range...I mean usually when you boot up the PC, you will see the BIOS logo on the right upper corner right! Then a bunch of your PC components are being detected, this is when and where it is out of range, and you won't see all the info, only some of them because they are covered or shifted to the left of the monitor.

    Just wondering what's wrong with it and how I can solve it? Is it the monitor resolution? well...If that's the case, how come after the POST, everything is displayed accurately?

    dmi data screen, I think this is what it is...The display width is just out of range.

    Well the card I use is ATI radeon 5870 or 5875. The gigabyte splash screen is just displayed fine but after this, the display width is out of range, I think during the POST or what you guys call dmi data screen.

    And I also set my GPU as first initial display device PCI-E.
