    Default New EP45-UD3P rev 1.6 bios FE Excellent

    Hi Everyone,

    I have 8GBs of G.Skill F2-8500CL5D-2GBPI-B (Black PI 2GB x 4) and have not been able to run this ram at 1066. I have been trying for months to get this RAM to run at 1066 and have had no success so I have been living with 800 . . . until today!! I just updated to FE and the RAM now works by just setting the timings to 5-5-5-15 and the DRAM voltage to 2.1.

    BAM worked the first try! I am one happy camper!

    Thanks GIGABYTE!

    That's good to hear.
    Have you run IBT, Prime95, OCCT or any other stability tests to ensure that your system is stable?

    I have been running prime95 for an hour with no issue.

    Before this bios, the best I could do was the Windows logo and a BSOD before the boot would complete.

    It's recommended that Prime95, OCCT, or Orthos be run for at least 8 - 12 hours or longer to ensure stability.
    You risk data or file corruption if you don't run extended stability tests. While your system might not freeze or have BSODs, corruption is still a possibility.
    My preference is to run Intel BurnTest (IBT) or LinX for "only" 10 loops for my initial test. If either of these tests fail, there is no reason to continue with the other tests, as your system isn't stable.
    I've had many times when IBT and/or LinX both complete without errors, where Prime95 or OCCT generate errors, sometimes after 10 - 12 hours.
    Did I mention that Prime95 and OCCT have at least three different tests that can be run?
    If you're into gaming, an excellent additional stress test is to run your most demanding game for several hours. It's a tough job but someone's gotta do it. :)

    Happy stress testing!!

    OK. . . As recommended, I ran an initial IBT test for 10 loops with no problem. I have now been running prime95 for 13 hours and everything looks good!

    Thanks for the recommendations . . . looks like Gigabyte has indeed fixed this bios.
