    Post Usual GAP55M-UD2 random memory-related BSoD boot errors

    Hi all,

    I've had a good browse of the forum the last few days, and see I'm not the only person struggling with this mobo and RAM boot crashes. I've tried a lot of the advice and am still struggling. Any help massively appreciated.

    Rig:
    Intel Core i5 750
    Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2
    Asus Geforce GTX275
    Western Digital WD7501AALS 750GB Hard Drive
    OCZ Stealth Xtream 500W PSU - 1x PCI-E 6/8pin, 2x SATA 12cm Fan
    4GB Corsair RAM (2 sets of 1GB matched pairs: Corsair 2GB (2x1GB) DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-10666 XMS3 Memory Kit Non-ECC Unbuffered CL9
    Windows 7 Ultimate x64

    Background:
    I built the rig from scratch 2 weeks ago. Ever since then the first boot of the day causes random BSoDs. These usually occur after the Windows logo appears, but before the log in screen, though today for the first time I had a couple after logging in. Successive restarts eventually allows Windows to laod normally, this usually takes 3 - 5 goes. Once the machine's successfully booted it can be restarted without any problems - but switching it on the next morning gives more BSoDs. Everything seems to operate absolutely normally once Windows loads, even under stress (games, benchmarking etc).

    Steps:
    - I flashed to version F8 using @BIOS (oops) when I first built the rig. I never saw any blue screens before doing this, but then that was day one, so I suppose I wouldn't have done. I've since used Q-Flash to reflash to F8.
    - I've swapped the RAM sticks around so that the pairs are matched up correctly
    - I've changed voltages and timings to those recommended on this forum
    - I've tried disabling advanced RAM / CPU features (Turbo, EIST, Load-line calibration etc)
    - I'm currently running with just 2GB installed, since booting up this morning wasn't happening very easily. I can't guarentee, but I suspect with just 2GB it'll boot up fine tomorrow morning, but I'll post again if not.

    Prayer:
    Please please please help! if you need any more information please shout.

    try with 1.28 or or 1.30000 qpi voltage and disable xmp manually set ram voltage to 1.64 and input your timings for example 8-8-8-24-1T but do it according to your ram

    Yeap, looks like memory errors to me.

    That could be your QPI/Vtt settings, IOH, Vdimm, or just an incompatibility with your memory. Please try setting your own QPI/Vtt and memory voltage and see if that helps.

    I'd leave Vcore on auto for now since you are not overclocked, but normal should be ok if you want to leave that. Set Vdimm to 1.66, and try 1.25-1.35 QPI/Vtt

    I agree with Warren about XMP too, disable this and set the MAIN timings yourself

    Thanks for the help so far guys, but I'm not there yet. I've tried all the setting recomended and I still struggled to boot this morning - problem seems to be getting worse :-(

    2 stupid questions. When you say vdimm, that means dram voltage, right? Secondly to disable XMP I just need to set memory profile to standard?

    I've been having all sorts of other smaller problems, I figure they're probably unrelated, but who the hell knows? When I finally booted this morning win firewall had stopped working, nvidia was reporting my CPU temp as 100c, my wireless had stopped working and something called volume manager had been installed, which now suggests I restart the pc to complete installation each time I boot!

    Doing a system restore now and for some reason it's running chkdsk. Nightmare. Really appreciate your advice guys.

    Yes Vdimm is your Ram Voltage so set that to 1.66v

    Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P) ......... [Disabled] <<< set this so it says disabled
    DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD) .......... [Expert] <<< set this to expert and stick in your RAM timings, i.e. 8-8-8-24-1T like Warren said but whatever your RAM timings are, if your not sure a link to your RAM would be good.

    try unplugging your hard drives when power is off and plug them back in,makesure there fully seated,also leaving auto voltages enabled will cause instability thats why its best to set them yourself,i would try re-seating your cpu heatsink if you said your temps were 100c maybe it isnt fitted correctly?? set manual ram settings it will tell you your ram timings on the side of the module just select quick timings and enter them

    Yes 100C is WAY TO HOT, this would throttle your CPU automatically.

    Are you sure the program is not incorrect? Please check again with Everest, RealTemp, or CoreTemp you can get those here

    Thanks for your continued support, guys.

    Sorry, should have been clearer - the 100c temp was definately an error in the program, idle is really mid-30s, just strange it all went **** up at the same time.

    I've now installed a fresh hard drive and reinstalled Win 7 Ultimate x64. All RAM settings are as recommended ont his forum. Still having the exact same problems. This is a nightmare :-(

    The only thing I don't have in my BIOS is:
    "Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P) ......... [Disabled] <<< set this so it says disabled"

    What I have is:
    Performance Enhance: [standard, turbo, extreme] <<< set to standard

    The RAM is this stuff:
    Welcome to Corsair :: Memory Configurator

    I notice that for some reason Ebuyer, where the RAM is from, lists the timings as 9-9-9-27, whereas corsair lists it as 9-9-9-24... but I guess that's no huge issue?

    It was ordered for me by work so I never really checked it out, but I notice now that my mobo isn't actually in the supported list at the corsair site. Could that be my problem? Time to order up some new RAM?

    Now looking at the Gigabyte memory support page it's looking more and more likely this is my problem. Anyone care to comment before I go out and spend 100 on new RAM?

    it could be ram i cantsay for sure,wont ebuyer let you exchange it for another brand? there pretty good to deal with,try ocz or kingston ram but any on gigabytes list will do
