    you have to test each stick one at a time in the first white slot from cpu socket,if alls well it will boot up with one stick,test all 3 ram modules if they all boot into windows then do the same test for the socond,third white slot,again they should all boot into windows if there working...if a ram module wont boot from one slot but will boot from the other slots then the ram slot on the motherboard is faulty

    Hi and thanks for the quick reply i have tested each memory as you said all the Rams are working in the first white slot and in the second slot but the problem occurs in the third white slot it doesn't boot. Here are the manufacturer instructions when enabling 3 channel mode with three memory modules,be sure to install them in the DDR3_1 DDR3_3 DDR3_5 SOCKETS.If only one DDR3 memory module is installed, be sure to install it in the DDR3_1 OR DDR3_3, so i guess this is why the one memory module doesn't work in the third slot.

    Hmm weird but the manufacturer says If only one DDR3 memory module is installed, be sure to install it in the DDR3_1 OR DDR3_3 it doesn't say anything about socket DDR3_5 it seems is not supposed to work in socket 5 ?

    Yeah, that's precisely what you should do eso, boot with any stick. Once it posts, turn off the board using it's "blue" POWER button. Next, install the 3 RAM sticks (Slots #1, #3 and #5, the white ones) and you should be fine.
    Also, I know some users that need to insert 1st stick and boot. Turn off PC, install 3rd stick and boot. Turn off PC, install 2nd stick and it works.


    Hope this helps,

    ESO the problem isn't your memory on this board you if I'm correct are using Dual channel memory therefore your board will only be able to use 2 sticks of your memory however if you were to switch to Triple channel memory then you would have no problem with this. I have been back and fouth with Gigabyte about this in past month and for some reason still have come to no conclusion. Just think I have total of 8gigs of ram 4 gigs in which I can't use because they are also dual channel. Also with these boards I have found out that as far as with memory you want to do it in group of 3's being TRIPLE channel. fyi.

    Above is where you should have your each of your dual (again assuming you have dual channel memory) installed. Now if you had three (Triple channel) memory then you would install them as above using the last one as well. However these boards only support 2 slots of Dual Channel Memory (thanks Gigabyte)

    why do you say the latest bios is F5 when the latest for the EX58-UD5 (rev 1.0) is F11?
    Do you have an EX58-UD5P, or an EX58A-UD5?
